Mixing/separating electric/rhythm section bass and orchestra contrabass

Hi Al,

Something I have struggled with, how do you keep the definition between the contra basses in the orchestra and the bass in the rhythm section?

Hi Stefan

Good question. Usually the rhythm bass is playing pizzicato, an the basses in the orchestra are bowed, which helps. I also pan the rhythm bass in the center, and the orchestral basses to the right, where they sit in the orchestra. AL
