For this video I feature the A Designs Venturas Microphone Preamp section. I used an MXL V67 Microphone, micing a Form Factor Audio 1-12 Cabinet and recorded straight to Logic Audio via my Apogee Duet. I used my 1973 Fender Jazz Bass strung up with DR Strings.
The first example was with the EQ section out, so completely bypassing the EQ, and the second example is with the EQ IN, boosting the lows and cutting the highs.
Now in the real world I would probably add a SLIGHT amount of compression, but I always use sound examples that are unaltered and are basically “faders up,” this way you can hear what’s being recorded without any alteration.
