    Hey guys, just a quick question...

    I have the Yorkville xm200, and I've finally found a great tone that I like. For this tone I have the 'Scoop' knob turned all the way up. I really like the sound of the knob, but I'm just wondering: What does that knob actually do? Does it affect the bass/mids/treble in any way? I've just always wondered what it does exactly. Thanks. :)

    Most of the time when I hear the word scoop it's associated with mids. That and ice cream. When you lower your mids on an equalizer, you get a 'scooped' look/sound, or a smiley face look. I like my mids kinda scooped, but cut em too much and it could drastically reduce your stage volume and overall presence in the mix. With that said, I dont have any experience with that Yorkie you've got, so that knob could do something entirely different for all I know.
