Recording Acoustic Bass with Steve Bailey

Recording double bass can be a real hassle. As anyone who has tried it can tell you, it takes time to find the right balance of definition and depth. Luckily, Steve Bailey spent tons of time figuring out what works for him, and made this video to share his techniques.

Bailey not only explains his mic placement, but also goes into the DAW and solos each track, making it a must-watch for anyone starting to record upright.
