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.
