Hi all, I've recorded with a few bands with and without producer. Obviously always with the sound engineer. I've used different basses (Music Man Stingray, Fender J 70s, Sire V7) with new and old strings, used different pedals and effects. I always rely on the professionals: producers and sound engineers. Especially lately I completely trust the engineer to choose the pedals/effects./amps I do is telling them what sound I am looking for. The results are different, depending on the engineer and his vision, so I was wondering if I should invest more into learning how to properly record and mix bass, not necessarily in order to do it myself, but more so I could " speak the same language" with the sound guys/girls. Also I usually trust with the chose of an actual bass sound band leader and sound pros. I am pretty happy with the recent recording(), but some of the early ones - I got mixed feelings. Any thoughts?
