Just finished new bass guitar test with Axe Fx 2 and Pod
HD 500. I was wondering about bass recording possibilities with this gear. Line 6 presented first bass amp model for HD 500 and HD Pro based on Ampeg B-15 NF, so i compared it with Axe's Ampeg SVT based model. No cab sims in the chain, also check description for Axe and HD 500 presets. As for me Axe sounds more clear and got awesome dynamic responce. Pod is a little bit muddy)
Description: VST Drums - Toontrack Superior 2.0. There are 2 sections of main riff: 1. Axe Fx 2 chain with Pedal - Type Compressor, Shred Dist (Marshall Shredmaster) and SV Bass amp head (Ampeg SVX). 2. Line 6 POD HD 500 chain with Tube Comp (LA2A Teletronix), Line 6 distortion and Flip Top preamp (Ampeg B-15 NF Portaflex). There are no any cab sims in Axe Fx and POD patches.
Anybody used it for bass recording?
