From this week’s gig with the Royal Norwegian Navy band. Gig performer really delivers when it comes to doubling on upright and bass guitar. I’m running a piezo pickup as well as a microphone on the upright, made a script to be able to solo one instrument at a time from the pedal, Amplitube for the bass guitar, an SSL for each of the upright signal chains. Melda Auto Align phase alignment tool to make sure the mic and line are in phase.
