Re: ..could use some advice on mix
Cool man. Glad to be of some sort of help here on my day off... lol
Don't be afraid to bring the HPF on the guitar up to even 250Hz or so. Also, about the two dynamic mics on the grill: were they the same type? I'm curious if you were trying to get a stereo image that close to the grill, or if you were using two different types of mics to blend their character together. I have a couple of ideas you could try in the mix, and next time you record.
As far as the bass goes, are you using a compressor on it? Was the bass amp mic'd, or did you go DI- or a combination? Using a compressor on the bass is very common to keep it out there and in front, driving the music (obviously depends on song/style). However, if you are having that much of a hard time keeping it fairly level, I have to wonder about the consistency of the bass player.
