A question on Audio Fidelity...

I think alot of those "ruff" "edgy or whatever albums weren't diliberatly trying to sound that way.They were recorded in the most hi-fi way possible at the moment; they were just recording what they wanted to hear. You can always lo-fi sounds later if your recording digitally. If it sounds too clean for your ears, then ruff it up a bit, but going at it with that thought in mind can give you a sound like Metallica's "st. Anger" album and have your drums sounding like trash cans, and guitars that sound like they were recorded by 5yr olds with milton bradley amps.(this coming from a huge metallica fan, so im not hating on them, just a classic example of a band purposefully going out of their way to record a garage "grunge" album and have it go all wrong).
