hey guys, after playing for 19 years, and doing some small studio work, I am finally involved in a project that will be recording in a "real" studio, with a known producer and engineer (gold records really on the wall!). I am thrilled, and yet terrified. The bands sound is a straight forward rock sound, two guitars, drums with myself, doing bass and some gospel sounding keys.. I play mainly a fender jazz, more specificly a geddy lee jazz bass, this bass has tracked well for me over the years, I also play a 1986 G&L 2000, has some serous funk in there. My live rig I run the tech 21 VT pedal into a QSC power amp. I guess getting that "ampeg" tone. People have given me compliments on my sound and rig, in the past I have used the power amp in conjunction with a tech 21 bass driver, and i like the high end grit i can get from that. Ok my question is this for those who have recorded semi pro/pro. Would it be too much for me to ask the engineer to use two tracks, one clean, and one with grit? has anyone else had this experience. my recording date is for may 13th~. drums and bass, all day into the night. I just want to go in, do my part, and be done. I am excited and terrified. any recording tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all so much for your input over the years, this site is simply awesome!
