    Advice from three top pros for recording great-sounding electrnic bass.

    Synopsis:

    In an ideal world, recording master-quality electric-bass sounds in your studio would be a piece of cake. You’d simply connect the bass to a DI and maybe to a preamp, adjust gain to avoid overload, slap on a compressor, press the record button, and off you’d go. But reality is more complicated. You have to take into account the quality and sonic signature of the outboard gear, the condition of the instrument, the skill of the player, the musical style, the acoustics of the control room, whether the sound of an amp will be added into the equation (and if so, what mics will be used), and so forth.
