I love that stuff but I wasn't saying you can't have transparent and fat I actually think transparent should make for fatter sounds because of less dirt in the way but that's why I ask because wouldn't one want saturation these days if they were going to use the coloration from tape? Otherwise they would be better off with digital because it is totally transparent right?
