I am noticing lately (as I get more and more into tone) that what I hear while I record the bass part (using Abelton) and the Focusrite Scarlett sounds very different tonally/level wise than what is played back (through the same headphones. A guitar player friend of mine seconded this today when we were chatting.
Is this a function of the Focusrite 2i2 and its more low end status?
Is there a ‘level’ of DI that gets you to an equal representation of recorded/direct monitored sound/tone, or is this just a thing? If just a thing, how do you compensate, if at all, for this?
When I am recording, I always listen to the playback to insure its the tone I want but is frustrating as when I go to record it it can sound quite different.
