I'm a guitar player just getting into home recording. I bought an abused Ibanez Soundgear 200 4 string bass which has been set up and now plays very well. It's a fairly old model and it doesn't have the active electronics and phat boost that the newer GSR200 models have. However, when I use it for recording it doesn't sound good to my ears. It's low and deep, but there is no clarity or definition to the individual notes. I'm recording with Adobe Audition and going direct into my notebook or through a Toneport UX2. Both options sound equally bad for bass but good for guitars. I'm wondering whether changing the bass pups would help or whether I should start again with a higher quality bass around the $300-400 price point. Or am I missing something else? Recommendations on pups or basses would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!
