1. Feed your bass into a mixer then into the line-in of your PC and use a sound recording package. (this is how I would do it)

2. Feed your bass direct into the line-in of your PC and use a sound recording package. (this maybe to loud for soundcard or even to quiet)

3. Does your bass amp have a line out? If yes then you could get a audio cable from that into line-in of your PC and use a sound recording package.

Hope that helps

Edit: or theres this although it seems a little pricey

And this has a line out

Don't use a mic, you want the guitar straight into the PC.

Right, I did music tech at uni and i've mixed a bunch of projects, mainly hip hop and played bass on quite a few tracks!

You wan't a good bass sound for cheap?

Ok.

Without spending money on getting a great sounding amp, micing it up, getting a decent pre amp etc etc, the easiest way is to DI (direct input) the bass into your computer.

You need two things.

A DI box.

A Mixing board.

So you'd do;

Bass -> DI Box -> Mixing board (line out)-> Computer (through the line in)

You can get cheap DI boxes that will just simply do the job. Something like this: http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/product/8531-behringer-ultra-di-di400p.html

Or if you want something totally bad ass which will make it sound amped up and let you manipulate the tone go for this;

Then you just need a basic mixer, such as;

Believe me this is the best way to get a good recording sound of your bass without spending shed loads of money.

Btw are you currently putting your Samson mic up to your amp or just your bass?
