      Before Dial norm type regulations, these 90s TV and FM stations would compress and expand and excite the crap out of all those songs that were already redlined on the recording and I hated the way they sounded doubly or triply compressed and processed.

        It was really hard to listen to, even as a guitar fan. Also, I can only listen to big sounding power chords for so long.

          So true. Ever since I learned to effectively blend different amps for each guitar track, I've never looked back. I'll use a minimum of two per guitar track. I've gone a little crazy lately blending as many as 3-5 amps (and that's with multi-mic setups) which is really fun for experimenting but it can get a bit much and I'll scale it back to make room for everything else in the final mixes. Lately the winning combo has been a modern sounding preamp with really clear mids for the "main" tone, some boogie for the big low end and a dash of Marshall for some rattier high mids.
          The opinions expressed above do not necessarily represent those of the poster and are to be considered suspect at best.

                          Absolutely, the bars here are full of people like that. But as a sitcom, I can safely point and laugh.

                            I think in the International System of Units (SI) a "WAT" is defined as a derived unit of 1 Clint besmirchment per hour

                            and WAAAT is defined as a derived unit of 1 Clint kilojoule of described Nirvana transgression per post.

                              Bud Light jokes never get old.

                              Another thing that could be adding to that fullness at the end of that Hinder song is the acoustic guitar is still strumming away under the heavy guitars. I've used that trick on some tracks and love the result.
