    I have a very simple recording studio. Fender Precision Bass into BR-8 home studio and would like suggestions about EQ for the Bass track.

    I find that when I record my bass tracks, low notes (E to B) tend to sound deep and strong, but when I play an octave up of the original bass line for some variety/fills, the bottom drops out and the bass line seems to disappear until I return to the lower notes.

    How do professionals get a good cutting sound on a B above low B on a Bass for example? Can it be done simply with EQ? Any suggestions?

    I also have a small LA 60 watt bass amp and some decent condenser mics if live recording might be a better way to go than line-in through the BR-8.

    right hand technique is a part of the equation. Gotta experiment.
