3. Sub club
When you’re mixing together bass-heavy parts in a track, it pays to have a strategy ready to craft them into a consistent, full bass end without any unwanted artefacts. As mentioned earlier, a good starting point is to choose one part as the dominant one before making the others fit around it. Typically, EQing the low-end out of weaker signals using high-pass filters is a good way to start, giving the main bass space to breathe – but sometimes can result in a cheap and unpleasant sound if the EQ is applied excessively. Instead, identify the main fundamental frequency of the dominant layer, then use a a bell EQ to notch out that frequency in the layers you’re looking to blend in. This’ll leave some room for the core sub frequencies to stand out without hollowing the low end of the entire mix out in an amateur way.
