Hullo, I used to have a Strat which, after attaching a 1/8" adapter onto the end of my 1/4" lead, plugged straight into my eMac. Under Garageband it gave pretty nice results, too - ie , after a bit of compression and reverb was added, I was happy with them. I'm now interested in buying a fretless bass guitar (nothing fancy, just the Squire Modified Fretless Jazz Bass appeals to me). I was hoping to do the same as I did with my Strat (just plug it straight into the line-in), but after doing some searching online, I am unsure whether this method will work with a bass guitar. The only other piece of equipment which may be able to help me is my Behringer MIC100 preamp, which I normally use with my mic. Would this kind of setup, with or without the Behringer, give satisfactory results, or do I need to buy another piece of kit? I really don't want to buy an amp, as I'm a true bedroom-studio musican, and don;t want all the frou-frou. Any ideas? Does anyone plug their passive bass guitar into their Mac?
