I picked up a pair of broadcast remote mic pres for $5 each on ebay. They have a built in limiter. Unremarkable as mic pres but I plugged a Shure Hi-Z to lo-Z Mic tranny in and plugged my bass directly into it. Tone to die for. I didn't have to do anything except adjust the gain.

For a sound clip...play Funky Em 20 bar

Your blues track sounds phenomenal Rawl!

Man I wish I had a way to lay down some lead on that.
I'll see if I can dig out my copy of Cake Walk and see if that works with what I have right now.

If that is you playing all the instruments on that track, I bow to your talent. Very Happy

Thanks Tom--

I can play all of the instruments. But I have to be honest, I grabbed some loops from Garage Band for the majority of the stuff out of laziness. When I write, I do all of the tracks myself or work with "analog" musicians. Drum tracks are usually machine loops. They have gotten better and there are some great live recorded loops of real drummers on GB.

I would prefer to work with a live rhythm section, but then I would have to schedule players, etc. It is hard to find the time to do that with the day job.
