I've been working with the recorder to sharpen my bow skills and this is one of the results: http://paperthecity.com/RayParker/SoundClips/MyHeartBelongsToDaddy.wma Sirleto bass Thomastik Solo string at Orchestra Tuning Audio Technica AT 822 Recorded on my PC with an OLD version of CoolEdit Pro Accompiment Band in a Box (BIAB) With BIAB you are able to dump the track into a wav file. I opened this in CoolEdit and recorded the bass on a third track. The mic was directly centered in in front of the bass and 3-4 inches below the bridge, and 3 feet away (laying on a short stool as my mic stand disappeared along with a room mate at some point). No phones, just put the BIAB track out pretty softly through the PC speakers and turned my back to help eliminate bleed. Put just a small touch of reverb on the bass and mixed it down.
