Help educate my ears / vocabulary?
I listen to a huge array of music, from classic rock to modern kpop, orchestral (sometimes even classic orchestral), EDM, hip hop, big band and its younger cousin jazz, country, and even some acoustic folk.
None of the recordings I listen to, on any platform display this phenomenon as clearly as the following video:
There is a sound pressure effect at the leading edge of some of the guitar work. It doesn’t sound bad, in fact, at slightly decreased volume, I kind of like it. Nonetheless, it /feels/ like I stuck my head into a sub enclosure - there’s a physical motion inside the cups of my headphones.
I don’t get this impact from hard hitting deep bass thumps, not on youtube, not on itunes, and not when I play a CD via MPC. It seems just different than the impact of bass, but the only thing I can compare it to is when you’re at a concert in a small enclosed venue (think local band sort of show) and you can feel the kick bass in your chest.
What is that sound that I am feeling as much as hearing, coming from an acoustic guitar with a microphone drilled into its sound box?
