Bass Guitar Recording …

Today we decided to use three microphones and a DI box to capture the bass guitar.

1 Room mic (condenser) – to capture the sound of our live room and add depth to the recording

1st close-up mic – positioned on axis at the centre of the speaker cone to emphasize the mid – high end frequencies.

2nd close-up mic – positioned off axis at the side of the speaker cone to capture the low – mid frequencies.

DI Box – a dry signal to capture the transients/attack of the bass tone.

When using more than one microphone special attention needs to be given to the phase relationship of the mics so no cancellation occurs. The 3 to 1 rule is a good place to start and then listening to the mics for phase issues in the ctrl room.
