This has probably been covered but I can't find much with a search. Not sure if it's more technique or effects, but I guess your answers will tell me. I've been playing for a little over a decade at levels ranging from hobbyist to full time pro depending on the year. I'm just starting with a new band that requires 50% fingerstyle and 50% pick playing, and I haven't played in a band setting with a pick since my first few months on the instrument. Looking for some guidance for those of you who play both styles regularly. What I'm finding is my volume difference between the two is massive, I'm WAY louder with a pick. Right now I'm just trying to roll off the volume on the bass when using a pick but it's neither the most efficient nor the most exact method. Is this a technique issue that I have to work on to try to get my pick attack consistently softer? I would say I have an average to slightly softer finger attack. I just feel like with a pick I should be digging in a bit to get that sharper attack so I naturally don't want to play softly. Or is this more something like I need a 2 channel amp setup or a boost pedal or something? I already have a compressor in the rack, but even with it set fairly aggressively taking off 6db with pick vs 1db or 2db with fingers there is still a noticeable volume difference. Help?
