Thank you, Sean, for you reaction. Violone is indeed totally washed. Placement of this instrument was very unlucky - very far away, right from the cembalo, so the clarity of the base line comes mainly from the cello and there is a little more low end which violone brings in. It's not that powerful instrument as a double bass and this is clear here. Violins were standing, cello player was sitting of course, so distatnce from cello to the microphones was bigger than this from the first and even the second violin. Couldn't find a solution to get in this circumstances clearer bow bass instruments sound...
