I'm just starting to lay down the bass tracks for this total do it yourself project. When my band plays live I boost a ton of mid-upper mid, and it sounds great. On the preliminary recordings, The bass and guitar just melded together and got super muddy. I've been told to set my eq flat and/or boost the lows to keep the mix clean. But I refuse to have my bass sound like that. If it'll help I'm playing a Musicman bass through a Carvin R1000 amp. I've tried recording line out, miking with several different mics (sm-57's, condenser mics). I could use advise as far as mic placement, combinations, or anything else that you guys can come up with.
