Hello. Please bear with me. . . I'm a recording newbie and I'm running into the damndest things I never thought about before. I'm recording direct using Cubase VST Score and my latest conundrum is how in the world to incorporate single rhythm guitar in the mix so that it sounds full without muddying everything else up. The signal has been recorded mono and located at L34 with a subtle stereo echo. The echo helps some but you can still literally close your eyes and point to the spot on the horizon where the signal originates. I realize I'm asking about specifics but I suppose I'm asking more about the philosphy, for want of a better word, of recording a single rhythm guitar (in a multi-piece recording). I'm sorry if I'm not clear on what I'm asking; I'm not so sure myself. All I know is, the rhythm guitar, which (I think) acts as both a basic fill and as a rhythmic timekeeper in the entire mix, sounds too isolated and directional. Any thoughts, comments, observations, chastisements, etc., would be greatly appreciated.
