8. Po­lar­ity-flip­ping

Computer Music - - Make Music Now -

A sim­ple yet ef­fec­tive way to re­fine the bass end of any mix is to experiment with the po­lar­ity of your kick and bass chan­nels. In­evitably, there will be a cer­tain amount of wave­form can­cel­la­tion or re­in­force­ment when lay­er­ing bass-rich sounds to­gether, so by flip­ping one sig­nal’s po­lar­ity, a stronger sound can some­times be achieved. This tech­nique is equally rel­e­vant when lay­er­ing dif­fer­ent synth bass parts to­gether, as swap­ping the po­lar­ity of one layer can of­ten make a mas­sive dif­fer­ence in the power and girth of the over­all com­pos­ite bass sound.
