hey there guys, i'm kinda confused regarding the bass tone during recording. Just got back from a recording session and i'm not really happy with what happened. i went to the studio, set up my bass and bass pod and got the tone that i wanted but the engineer said that it was too boomy and the tone wasn't there so what he did was to turn all the eq knobs on my bass to full and also fiddled with my bass pod till i ended with a iron maiden kind of tone. the "clangy" tone as i call it. i hated it. but it was my first time and the engineer said that we could eq it during mixing to get rid of the "clangy" sound. so i was just wondering do u record with the tone that u want or do u guys eq it later during mixing to get the tone that u want? I also read the older threads mentioning about going in with a flat signal. so what is a flat signal and how do u go about getting such a signal? sorry if this has been asked before, it's my first time recording and any help would be appreciated.
