Jazz Trio Improv #1

April 10, 2021 10:04 PM

I recently did a fairly significant overhaul to my recording setup - trying out the new rig with a jazz trio type format with an improvised double bass part which I mic'd and DI'd the pickup & blended the two together. Stereo piano is from the Roland DP-90 and the drums are the factory brushes kit from the DP-90 also.

Nice! The blend of mic-ing and DI-ing the bass sounds really warm and rich.
What sort of mic placement do you do?

Agreed! The bass sounds great.

Hey thanks for the kind feedback you guys!

chococat - I placed the mic about 2-3 feet away from the bass, around the same height of the f-holes. I prefer to mic my double bass with some distance, I've never gotten particularly good results with a close-mic situation.
