The bass is really think and hard while staying boomy. I'm not technical with words but that is the sound I'm trying to get out of my Pod HD500.
Any help would be appreciated,
I didn't listen to the song you were trying to capture the bass from, but in terms of "thick and hard while staying boomy," I think what you mean is full, fat-warm, low-end tone that cuts through in mix. So, in addition to what's been said here, my suggestions for thick boominess are that it's going to result in a combination of tweaks in the following areas: EQ on AMP; Amp THUMP, the mic and room reflections. So, my first swing at editing these combinations would be to:
1. Increase AMP Thump. To do that, get into the EDIT mode for the AMP you've selected, go to page 3, and increase the THUMP
2. Go to the first page on EDIT on AMP and tweak the EQ and you can finely tune the low end, low and high mids, as well as a little treble. Make small incremental changes to see how those changes work against/with the THUMP increase you've made.
3. Scroll through the different mics to see which one gives you the phattest, yet crispest sound.
4. Fidlle with the Room reflections.
You may have to return to some of these for finer tweaking after you get into the general vicinity. I would do all this first, before I added any kind of effect to the sound. I know people have different views of how to achieve sounds, but my philosophy is to work from the bass guitar out. If you have active pick-ups, you can make further tweaks to the sound afterwards. If not, I'd just turn all vol and tone knobs up to 10, and then begin with Step 1 above.
Happy Sound Hunting!
