I put down some scratch tracks a couple of weeks ago in my band's rehearsal space and was surprised at how great it sounded. When I got sent a mixdown, however, I was surprised yet again at what had been done to the sound I had. I'm afraid I can't give you a "before," but I can describe it in relation to the "after." Here's the after. Notice the soft, fuzzy clipping kind of sound? That wasn't there. All that I heard before was new ProSteel strings and a hint of grit/modeling from my very modestly dialed-in SansAmp BDDI. The before was big, growly and aggressive--but not the slightest bit fuzzy as it is now. The knob-twister dude mumbled something about having added some "SVT." I think he was inspired by the sight of my SansAmp and figured I would like it or something. Anyway. I'm trying to decide if I like it or hate it or if I want to suggest something different to him or what. This guy's going to be engineering my bass sound on two upcoming albums. What do you folks think? Like the sound?
