Hey guys, Been wondering about this for a while, that is, about how do you usually prefer to use the bass (guitar) in the mix. Don't know how much of a standard the 'clean on one channel and very distorted on a second one using a single take, both centered' approach is -or isn't- much of a ''must'' - I've seen guys like Ola go this way, but then again, I listen to a bunch of records (90 stuff, also 80s) when that doesn't seem to be the case; normally I'm listening to a single, 'clean' bass track (which, I guess, in a way could clear up the mix?) I'm guessing the 'grit' thing is more of a modern mix trend? How do you prefer to go about it? Do you think there would be any benefit in double tracking the bass part at all, with the same effect or a different one on the second take, for beefing things up? Or opening it up from dead center? Does any big name ever do that? Or would that make the mix more difficult to work with (clarity and whatnot). Never seen this mentioned before, so... Thanks for your opinions!
