i told myself “im gonna enhance the bass on thrift shop like that dancing queen post” but i went horribly wrong

is this the new death grips beat

The OP probably needs to learn about dynamic range and the “volume wars” if they want to avoid this problem in the future.

Basically, modern digital recordings (and modern digital remasters of old analog recordings) tend to be much closer to the digital volume limit than recordings made/digitized several decades ago.  The reasons for this are interesting and partially capitalism-related, but I digress.

Increasing the volume of recordings that are already close to the volume limit will only distort them into a square-wavy mess (rife with displeasing non-harmonic intermodulation distortions) like this.

To bass-boost a loud modern recording without causing blatant degradation (if one can even make a Macklemore song further degraded than it already is), one must first decrease its volume to free up headroom for the increased bass amplitude.

oh shit sorry what was that? cant hear you over this bass

me: republicans and democrats are both useless
dad: yeah, right on
me: both parties are ineffective, minor factional splits within the same general ideology, and their representatives are completely out of touch with the average person's reality
dad: yeah, I guess
me: the only thing that can save us now is absolute revolution
dad: wait what
me: we start by dismantling white supremacy and patriarchal hierarchies, adopting the practice of decolonization, while simultaneously retiring capitalism and private property, and redistributing all wealth and resources
dad: no stop-

It’s not safe. That bear is going to suffocate with that plastic wrap covering his nose and mouth.
