And here's the rig:
My band is just now releasing our first tracks as a duo (a little bit behind schedule. Oh well). After keyboardist/bassist left, we wanted to try it as a duo, so I got the OC-3 to send just the low notes out to a PA, and I got the POG2 to add some more variety. I'd love to hear your thoughts! (and bear in mind that except for a bass synth over the last few bars of the first track, this is all just live guitar and drums--no overdubs, no double tracking)
The bass sound just adds bottom bump. It doesn't sound like a bass guitar here. It's way more lively when i run from the OC-3 to my old Digitech 2112 for tube driving and EQ then to PA, but when we recorded this, i sent the OC-3 straight to a DI box. I was planning to EQ and overdrive it a bit after recording. But we couldn't get any decent overdrive or punch out of it, cuz the only thing that recorded were the fundamental tones down around 100 hz. Ugg... I hadn't even bothered get out of my recording booth and go listen to what was being recorded until it was mixing time. I think that switching to a low impedence signal before EQ'ing/driving it is why we only got the fundamentals(?) Oh well, I think I've learned for next time.
