i guess im confused about this term... this is used sooo much on talkbass so im just curious about everyones definition. to me it use to mean a scooped mid range. basically saying when recorded the bass is transparent. instead of seeing thru glass you can kinda hear thru it. if that makes sense... almost like its there but to a lotta people who dont have a musical ear its so clear or transparent that its not. now lately ive seen some talk that seems to be the opposite. where transparent means a flat eq with no "colored" tone. colored meaning changing your eq so your bass has a totally different tone from its natural tone. did i lose anyone yet? cause i think i lost myself... so whats your definition transparent?
