Here is the continuation of a segment from Audio Fanzine on recording bass guitar. You can get the perfect recording by mixing and several tracks to get the sound that you need. For example, you might like the definition of the DI take but you wish it had more “fatness.” Or if you want to have more attack on the off-axis amp recording.
Don’t be afraid to add something if you’re are not satisfied with the sound. The only thing about this method is that you obviously need to know more or less what you want to achieve beforehand.
