Re: Bass guitar in heavy music
I've got to disagree really. As someone who plays the bass and makes recordings, I think a small amount of crunch on the top end of the bass in a heavy music setting can really add to the sound. Because you've got the guitars mixed wide and the bass in the centre, it still allows you to have them in their own seperate spaces. You can also mix the distortion in different ways. Normally you would expect to cut the 1-2 kHz range of a guitar slightly, and add this in to the bass distortion sound. Of course too much distortion will just leave it sounding vague.
