No, not a thread about slap technique I always have this issue with bass. The transients, especially at the beginning of a phrase sorta pop louder than other parts. I am recording direct, not using any amp sim but am using one of the impulses included with recabinet. It is compressed heavily with a high ratio (15/1) with a fast attack and medium release. Here is a clip of what I mean: The little unison line at 0.16 seconds has a little "pop". Is there a way to eliminate this kind of thing? Please excuse my lack of knowledge...I am still pretty new to this stuff. Thanks in advance.
