Re: Troubles recording vocals through bass octave effect

This is not recorded direct.  I only have laptop speakers right now, so I am not sure of the bass sound, but there should be no ringing...http://mikefugazzi.com/files/stomach.mp3

The problem for me is I'd like to record direct rather than miking my amp so I can record while the kids are asleep.

Anyone have good luck getting a recording of vocals processed to sound like bass?  Not only do I not get a great sound, I get a horrendous ringing/distortion: http://mikefugazzi.com/files/Rattle_Demo.mp3

Only thing I can hear there that's commonly considered a
problem is the noise caused by blowing into the mic.

I expect that when you're playing through your amp that
high frequency sound is filtered/distorted out to give the beatbox sound
that you want.

If that's right (and I'm guessing a bit here) then the amp's
part of your sound, it's the amp that is changing your sound,
not the DI setup.
To make a demo maybe you need a good quality condenser mic on the amp.
...but then it's all gonna be pretty grungy,
like the live footage.
