Came across this a bit ago, and been meaning to share. Definitely one of those “oh, WOW” lightning bolt moments in my brain that come too rarely (jokes as you like on that one).
The hardest part I feel for producers is getting the low end SOLID. You listen to your favorite tracks, which just sound so clean so full…beautiful ( if your a production nerd like me, this can be the case) . You want to get your low end to sound the same, you want it to PUNCH through the mix and have power. More often then not, your left with a rumbling mess of 50hz noise that doesn’t sound punchy or powerful. It just sounds like a wall of shit. I had this problem for years, I’d think ” ( pro’s ) bass range sounds SO simple, so clean….the funny part was, the answer was in my question the entire time.
