  1. I've decided to sell my Line 6 Lowdown HD400 head as I've changed bands and no longer need all the amp modeling and built in effects. It's less than a year old and other than a scratch to the underneath when I was racking it up it is in mint condition. Comes with all leads, manuals and original box. If anyone's interested PM me and I'll get some pics up. Line 6 Lowdown HD400 main features include: * 3U height * 5 Incredible Bass Amp Models: Clean, R&B, Rock, Brit, and Grind * 5 Essential Bass Effects: dedicated studio-grade Compressor plus 3 Smart Control FX including Envelope Filter, Octaver and Chorus, and a fully adjustable bass Synth * Deep switch for supreme fatness * 4 Programmable channel memories, 36 with FBV Shortboard * Front-panel tuner * 400 watts * NL4M-series Speakon four-pole mono speaker output for external cabinet * Balanced XLR direct output with exclusive A.I.R. processing (plug straight into the snake at the gig or into the board at the studio) * 1/4" preamp output * Headphone out * 1/8" CD/MP3 input * Jack for FBV Express or FBV Shortboard Line 6 Lowdown HD400 Amp models include: * Clean - Inspired by the Eden Traveler, this model is all about clean, funk and fusion bass tone. It'll give you all the warm lows and punchy highs you need * R&B - Inspired by a '68 B-15 Flip Top, this model is a tribute to those late 60's and early 70's clean fat bass tones. It is the kind of tone you hear on most Motown recordings, as played by a pioneering young bassist, James Jamerson. * Rock - This model is inspired by the '74 Ampeg SVT which has appeared on innumerable recordings and arena stages worldwide. Now, all the tone of the head and 300-pound behemoth 8x10 cab is available without having to lookup a chiropractor. * Brit - Based on a '68 Marshall Super Bass, this model delivers the kind of overdriven bass sounds brought to us by late '60s British rock pioneers like Cream and The Who. * Grind - As the name would suggest, this is for modern rock lovers—Alice in Chains to Mudvayne and Rage Against The Machine. Based on* a distorted SansAmp PSA-1 into an SVT with a direct clean bass signal mixed in, this model gives you that angry, clear and punchy aggression that cuts through the mix and takes your sound to DEFCON 1. Line 6 Lowdown HD400 effects include: * Compressor - This pro LA-2A-style compressor is ideal for every bass player and particularly useful for the ones who play with their fingers—achieve a smooth and consistent signal at any volume. * Envelope filter - Based on a Q-Tron, this is the baddest envelope filter on the planet. This effect can be heard on tons of major funk and rock tunes. * Octaver - Based on the EBS OctaBass, this effect produces a single note one octave below the note you're playing to add a powerful new vibe to your sound. * Chorus - Based on the much loved T.C. Electronic Chorus. This is the most transparent, smooth and expressive chorus ever built for bass—and using it won't reduce your low end. It's especially beautiful with fretless basses. * Synth - Sitting at the back of the model knob is this secret weapon that turns LowDown into a '70s classic bass synth. From funk to modern rock, this fully adjustable synth delivers incredible tones while tracking every dynamic move you make! Looking for £200 cash on collection from Leicester but can have it next day courier delivered for an extra £10 or can meet within a reasonable distance for a bit of petrol money. Cheers Alfie
  2. That's a really good point Gary Leave the master fader at 0db then work to having the mix peaking at around -6db to -3db (obviously turning up your speakers to listen at a better level). That way you will have more headroom for the dynamic range of the track. This is also gives more headroom when mastering the track and the final level will be increased back to 0db during the mastering with the application of a mastering compressor or limiter.
  3. [quote name='Skol303' post='1327061' date='Aug 4 2011, 02:46 PM']^ Good suggestion, thanks! I'd honestly not thought about doing this... I tend to mix more with my ears than with my 'eyes' (if that makes any sense?), but in this case I think a spec analyser will be very useful indeed. Thanks again for the tip.[/quote] Yeah man i totally agree, mixing with ears is way more preferable than with solely relying on a visual aid. However, with low and high frequencies bordering on the edge of human hearing it can be quite useful for seeing what frequencies the instrument is working in and if an other instruments are encroaching on those frequencies. Here's a handy interactive frequency chart which may be useful in instrument frequency separation. [url="http://www.independentrecording.net/irn/resources/freqchart/main_display.htm"]http://www.independentrecording.net/irn/re...ain_display.htm[/url] You could also try putting in a mid cut at around 250-300Hz which might add a bit of separation between the bass and the mid. Hope this helps.
  4. Have you looked at all the low end instruments using a spectral analyzer? You could use it to see where each instrument is the strongest in the frequency spectrum then add some surgical EQ to cut the lesser frequencies either side of it. This should help add some definition between the kick/bass/synth etc.

    Hey hey Been sneaking around on here for a while and figured it was time to say hello I've been playing the guitar for over 20 years and am a contemporary music college graduate. I work for a computer games company as an audio engineer and I'm also a Berklee College of Music trained mastering engineer. I used to play bass in my younger years and last year found I had become really bored of the guitar so took the bass back up. Since them I'm gigging weekly in either a pub rock band or a function'/wedding band on the bass and loving every minute of it. I'm in the process of slowly improving my bass rig and basses from the one I initially bought to get gigging again so hopefully soon will satisfy my bass GAS (as if). Alfie
  6. Wow stunning bass, have a bump for being a cat owner edit: have a bump for originally buying the bass off a cat owner lol
  7. [quote name='Mykesbass' post='1326748' date='Aug 4 2011, 12:19 PM']I used to sell these - amazing guitars. I presume this is a Canadian built model? Have a great guitar bump on me![/quote] Thanks man, yeah it is a really amazing acoustic, I just don't play it anymore and gotta finance my wedding somehow. I had so many comments from other guitarists when I gigged it how good it sounded and how well it played. I think it's a Canadian model, will double check that when I'm next home.
  8. Greetings I've decided to sell my Garrison GGC-20-CE Electro Acoustic including hard case. It has had very light use and has been very well looked after. Mainly used in a smoke free home studio with the occasional gig it is near mint condition minus a tiny light 'dink' that is barely visible (picture 3). It is a truly amazing sounding guitar and I knew I was going to buy it after the first strum. Only selling due to funding a wedding. Here's some web details: Brief: Garrison GGC20 Grand Concert Electric Acoustic Guitar has a solid western red cedar top with a satin finish, the back and sides are solid canadian birch. The quality of materials chosen helps to ensure that despite the smaller resonant chamber this instrument still delivers a great bass response, coupled with the distinctive tone of the Griffiths Active Bracing System. Garrison GGC20 Grand Concert Electric Acoustic Guitar The Grand Concert body shape of this instrument gives a particularly comfortable playing position and the quality of materials chosen helps to ensure that despite the smaller resonant chamber this instrument still delivers a great bass response, coupled with the distinctive tone of the Griffiths bracing system this guitar is a really lovely instrument to play.

  16. Hi I'm looking to sell my Ibanez EDB550 active bass in walnut. I bought this 7 months ago just after they had been discontinued and this was the last boxed one I could find. The condition of the bass is really good. It has been gigged and there are a few knocks on the sides but really only slight and barely noticeable. The back electric plate still has the plastic wrapper on. It is a huge sounding bass with the active Duncan pickups and can cover many tones. It is setup very nicely and it is so easy to play with the typical super fast Ibanez neck, plus the cut away under the top two strings make it a breeze to play slap and pop bass. I will ship it in the original box I received it in with all the original manuals. Only selling because I really want a Jazz bass. The Specs: The original Ergodyne EDB's were molded of man-made materials so their comfortable three-dimensional shapes could be offered at a reasonable price that wasn't possible in wood at that time. New bass making technologies now allow the EDB's player-friendly ergonomic shape to be affordably rendered in ash, maple, or basswood for rich organic tones. Like Ibanez Soundgear necks, Ergodyne necks are sleek, slender and fast. The bolted on All Access neck joint allows the easy access to the upper frets associated with set-in and neck thru joints. Ibanez EDB550 Features: * Neck: 5pc EDB4 Wenge/Bubinga neck * NeckType: EDB4 * Body: Walnut body * Frets: Medium frets * Fingerboard: Rosewood * Inlay: Pearl Dot * Bridge: B100 bridge * NeckPU: Duncan/Ibanez neck pu * MiddlePU: Duncan/Ibanez bridge pu * EQ: EQB-IIDX 2-band eq *SOLD*
