Gday JMJ. Hope all is well! Curious as to how many channels of bass you may often blend into the mix (or send for mixing) when you are recording. I decided to try a few different mics on my Ampeg Heritage cab today - SM57, AKGD112, Audio Technica AT2020 and Rode NTK (simultaneously). I had the Radial JDI running a clean channel into the desk and distortion via a Boss ODB-3 and/or Reutz modded "84 ProCo Rat (with the blend on just a touch) to an Ashdown ABM500 with Tung-Sol pre tube and Ampeg cab via the 4 mics summed into one mono output to interface. I mucked around for ages finding the best combo to my ears. I found that a blend of the JDI, SM57 and AT2020 (all budget stuff) to sound really clear, full and aggressive, with no nasties. (Think a Dean Bernadini from Chevelle type sound). I guess what I'm asking is, if you find that a blend works for you (summed to one track/channel) do you think you would rather send that one track for mixing, or is it preferable to record all (however many) tracks as individuals to send them all away for mixing? What would a mixing engineer prefer? Cheers.
