Well, I've been playing guitar for about 3 years and have seen the phrase mid scooping an awful lot. And I have never figured it out. Can someone please enlighten me?
well... an excessive amount of mid scooping is awful. if you're starting with a mid heavy amp, then yea. turning the mids down help you get something that doesn't sound like it's coming out of ur phone. with a fender, u'd want pretty scooped mids of like... 4-5 ish with treble and bass on 8. but on a mesa boogie, i wouldn't put my mids under 7.
So is mid scooping taking down your mids? Or is it increasing them?
