        At one point, yes, they did look for clarity. That’s all gone now. These days, clarity doesn’t matter when a tune can bump on a system.

    1. Exactly. Bass is nice and all but it’s not all music is. All the mixing books Ive read have some form of “less is more” quote. I guess it’s more of a suggestion now. Its Big and Loud over natural and dynamic. Thanks for reading and leaving your opinion as well.
