You know how sometimes you sit around and noodle, you dial in the amp and it sounds fantastic. You think to yourself that "wow, I've got to put this over a track" so you open the DAW, load a backing track and start playing. Your recently wonderful tone now sounds like absolute rubbish in the mix! Nothing strange really, it's only natural that your ears percieve something one way when you hear it isolated as compared to when it mixes with a bunch of other frequencies, right? Lately I've been digging a certain mid scooped (at least what I perceive as mid scooped) tone a lot and I thought to myself that this sounds like that tone on the live recording of Voodoo Chile. In a mix though it sounds thin, weak, lacking punch. I then think that maybe (most likely) I don't know what the hell I'm doing so I figured I'd ask. Before I do I should point out that I'm not going for the tone on the recording, I'm merely curious as to why I think that mine, that sounds similar disappears in the mix. The tone that Hendrix has on Voodoo Chile from Electric Ladyland, that is mid scooped and with fairly low gain, right? Or am I not understanding this at all?
