Intro to Bass Tone
Welcome back, this is day 7 of my little recording bootcamp, with Monuments, and today we're going to be discussing bass tone, and tracking. Which is my favorite part of the process. There's a bunch of different factors involved with bass tone that we are going to go into, for instance, little things, that make a big difference. Like, the kind of pick. We're going to be choosing between two different basses that the Monuments guys will go into. We have seven different input channels, ranging from high, to DI, to microphones, we're using outboard compressors as well. And all kinds of stuff. It's a pretty complicated set-up. And it's sounding pretty great. And remember, the name of the game is to give us options, because like we'll keep going over, bass tone is maybe the hardest part to get, and the most important part of the mix. And you want to give yourself options. Because this is what will take you the longest to master.
