Recording the Stick via the CXC210's DI.....
« on: May 16, 2005, 01:48:34 PM »
I was working on some new tracks this weekend for the upcoming C&TC album that called for some Stick playing, so I decided to try doing things a little differently this time: plug the Stick into my Eden CXC210, switch off the amp's speakers, and run the DI output from out of the back, straight into the board and listen through the nearfield monitors while recording.

How did it work out? Wonderfully. [:D] [8D]

Not only did the Stick bass track sound thick, clean and punchy with lots of sustain (without any outboard processing...love that compressor on the CXC210), but a second track I also did on the guitar/melody side of the Stick (a kind of cymbalom/hammer-dulcimer style part) also going through CXC210 had a clear, ringing tone that was perfect for the part...somewhat surprising for something considered to be a bass-specific rig! [:)]

Soooo...if you're doing any Stick recording, don't be afraid to try using your Eden rig's DI for both the bass and guitar/melody sides! [:D]
