    WOW dude. That's VERY close to the bass tone I've been looking for! Sounds BIG.

    Also sounds to me a bit like Jeff Pilson on the Dio Album Angry Machines (Song - Hunter Of The Heart), slightly less dist/overdrive though.

    I just want to shime in and say I highly disagree with Korns bass tone being good. The only this distiguishable in it is the click from his strings hitting the pickup from them being so loose and him sloppily smacking them. Fieldy is a horrible excuse for a musician, and Korn as a whole is just repulsive. :puke::puke::puke:

    Sorry I just had to get that off my chest. I will add some bass tips when I am not so tired a cranky.

    I tend to think of the opening to the new Dark Tranquility as the kind of thing I'd like to hear on its own but I don't know if it's different with the rest of the band. Tasty mix all around, though, so that might be my pick.

    So this is a bit late but I just got a chance to talk to Frank tonight.

    Fieldy's bass sound is a Mesa head through two cabs (one a 6x12 with a tweeter the other 2x15) with AT 4047 & 4060 mics on each. He also said he used a Sanken mic but only on the 2x15 cab.

    I would add
    Nightwish - Once album
    Marco Hietala's warwick sounds awesome.
    Listen to "Wish I has an angel" or "Ghost Love Story".

    Metalium's first album's bass tone is great too.

    I recently had some luck with a SHURE KSM32 on an ampeg B15n, miked two-and-a-half feet away edge of speaker pointing down toward dust cap. Push that with a pedal...very brown.

    I don't get it, what's a "mult"? :ill:
    Is is, that you mean, there's 2 tracks, one DI, one distored?
    The distorted one like a copy of the DI run through eg. Ampeg SVX?

    As for the SSL channel, do you load it like 2-3 times in your inserts in a row, cause I can't figure how to dial the knobs correctly, so that all settings are with one plug...

    I mean... can you post a screenshot of your settings on the plugs?

    I think that'll make things clearer for me :)

    You know, I've been wanting to try BattleTits's method, and I'm a bit confused, too. I think screenshots or a little clarification from either BattleTits or Mood Bender would be a huge help.

    Cheers,
    Richard

    I love that one also...

    I may add (those are kind of "Ampeg SVT" typical sounds but i love it) :

    Slipknot - Iowa

    pantera - the 2 bonus tracks on the live album (listen to the bass intro on "i can't hide".. i love it :) )

    All Shall Perish - hate malice revenge

    36 crazyfists - a snow capped romance

    madball - hold it down



    and then less "ampeg svt metal" bass sound tones :


    incubus - morning view & light grenades

    e town concrete - the renaissance

    faith no more - king for a day, fool for a lifetime

    He runs a Marshall VBA 400 live. I think his gain is from the Marshall, not from a pedal, but I could be wrong. He does have a nice distorted tone.

    I think the real trick there is the Rickenbacker, though. Ricks love distortion. This can be proven with empirical evidence outside of Arch Enemy. (See= Rush, "Moving Pictures"; The Sisters Of Mercy, "First And Last And Always"; Mötorhead, anything.) :headbang: I suck hard on bass, but I want a Rick badly.

    Dug's tone is pwnage. His rig is crazy, though. :zombie:
