Hi I recently bought a POD GX to start recording and ever since I got it, I have been wasting countless hours trying to get a decent sound that doesn't clip the audio recording. I am recording with a Ibanez K5 and Ibanez SRX690ex. I first tried using Audacity but then I tried the Reason software that came with it and it sounds exactly the same if I was to record it with Audacity. The bass on the heaviest string always clips the audio and sounds like farting noises and the higher notes don't sound good at all. I noticed the sound doesn't sound too bad if the volume in which I am recording is low but that kinda defeats the purpose of recording since I'm trying to put my bass tracks over music.

 

How can I get  good crisp and clear tone from my bass that is loud and doesn't clip or sound like farts? Basically if you have a setting with pod farm I would like to know what settings to use and what exactly to do on Reason or Audacity to make it ready to go on a track and not sound bad?
