Recording Tip
George P's Recording Tip of the Month
by George Petersen, Mix Editorial Director

When recording bass guitar—combining a direct box with a miked amplifier—a time delay occurs, because the direct box signal arrives sooner than the signal going through the amp, out of the speaker and into the mic. Summing these usually results in a muddy sound. Adding a slight delay (a couple milliseconds or so) to the direct box signal improves the sound immensely, making it full and powerful. The same technique can be applied to guitar tracks, but using two guitar mics—one right in front of the amp, the other 15 feet away in the back of the room. Apply a 15ms delay to the close mic track, and the result is a massive sound where the room reverb of the ambient mic occurs simultaneously with the sharp attack of the close mic. Guitarists love this one!
