I was researching Korn's tone for the past 2 years, and I am now looking at their bass tone - thinking about getting Mesa Carbine M9 with a powerhouse cab. Someone on another forum said they were listening to bass on their records for a while and decided it was in fact a "hi-fi" sound. So my question is, what does this mean?
Does "hi-fi" mean that bass guitar was recorded through a tube direct box?
In hindsight, when I play my SoundGear 5-string through a Roland MicroCube Bass RX, it actually sounds better than when I play it through my Peavey Tour 450W with a 4x10 cab. Not as loud or punchy obviously... But sharper and more defined. Does this have to do something with the hi-fi-ness also?
