BRIAN MONTGOMERY: All right. So for track
two, like I said, we’re going to do a bass guitar here. So the first thing we need is
a cable for the bass. And we’ll run that in to the guitar in on the back of the machine
and I’m just going to run it directly in to the bass with that. So we’re going to go ahead
and take track one down ’cause we’re going to have get the levels for track two again.
And the difference form the first one are input selector, we’re not using the mic line,
we’re using the guitar. So we’ll take that to the guitar. We can pull, go ahead and pull
that out of the safe and move out to the right indicator there. We can pan all the way to
the right there. And we can kind of go ahead and bring up our fader to that point. With
this track, the difference from the microphone with that input back there is we’re not going
to be using the trim setting here. There’s a very little knob on the back right next
to the input there that will control the actual level of the instrument going in. So once
you’re all plugged in, your bass is tuned up, you can go ahead and start setting the
levels.
