Coupling Bass Octaves
By Craig Brougher

Peter Coggins was asking how to couple bass octaves on a Standard stack.
I think the best way to do it is to couple between the trackerbar and the
primaries, but use one bleed for both primaries.  Don't use them both.
If you wish, you can experiment with bleed sizes and perhaps make it one
numbered-drill size larger.  Try it first on one pair of notes.

The reason I don't suggest driving two secondaries with one primary
(which is really the best way, efficiency-wise) is because of the
difficulty making the connection within the confines of the Standard
stack.  However, if you figure out a way to do that for yourself, I think
it would be better.  Not quite as many losses that way.
