    Tighten Up That Low End!

After that is another EQ, which is a less than 60Hz (this can drop lower to 40hz) and gently sloping, controlling the low end, giving room for the Kick Drum. 

    ii. With the Bass Amp High Pass at the same point around 170-200hz allowing the high end of the Bass Amp to give the sound personality. 

    iii. You can also duplicate the Bass Amp and follow the same steps above but also use to add additional Saturation or Distortion to help it glue together with the guitars.

    How to EQ Kick and Bass for Better Low End | LANDR Mix Tips


    Kick and bass can be the most difficult things to get right in a mix.

    In this video, I’ll show you some of the best ways to EQ kick and bass to get the low end you’re looking for.

    Before we start, the specific EQ frequencies we’re using in this video are just starting points. As always you have to use your ears to determine the best ranges to apply EQ.

    Beginner and intermediate producers almost always underestimate the effects of their listening environment.

    You could perfect your mix in a bad sounding room—only to realize that it’s completely wrong when you hear it in a different environment.

    Your low end is particularly affected by your mixing room. But there are a few things you can do to make sure you’re judging your bass frequencies as accurately as possible:

    Mix reference as often as you can: Referencing different tracks in different environments will help you get an idea of where the biggest flaws are in your room.

    Use good open headphones to check lows: If you know your room is flawed, a good pair of headphones can go a long way to help you make mix decisions.

    If you have a good idea of what frequencies are problematic, you’ll know to be careful when EQing them.

    When you first start mixing with EQ, it seems like you could just boost the low end to get that powerful bass you’re looking for.

    Too much low end energy in the mix can actually make your tracks sound weaker.

    All speaker systems have a limit of how low they can go. If there’s a lot of sonic information at a lower frequency than a speaker can play, it will struggle—and fail—to reproduce it.

    If your kick or bass instruments have too much sub bass, you’ll need to use a hi-pass filter to reduce it.

    By bringing up an EQ on this bass track I can see right away that there’s a lot happening at very lowest frequencies.

    I’ll start with a 48 db/octave low cut at 30 Hz. The timbre of the bass hasn’t changed at all, but I can already hear a bit of a tightening effect when I add the kick back in.

    I’ll gradually move the frequency of the hi-pass filter up until I start to hear a negative change in the sound of the bass.

    It’s actually best to do this with your eyes closed since the visual feedback from an EQ can affect how you judge low end.

    I’ll backtrack a bit right as I start hear the body of the bass get weaker . That should be a pretty good spot for the high-pass filter.


    EQing a track is like putting together a puzzle. You have to shift things around to make space.

    For your kick and bass to punch you need make space for them in the mix.

    The inverse is also true. If your mix doesn’t have the right space for your bass, you’ll never get the beefy sound you’re looking for.

    Example: This kick drum sounds great solo’d, but I can tell that it’s fighting the other elements when I listen in the mix. The low-mids is especially congested.

    To deal with this, I’ll carve out some of this area in the kick to let the rest of the mix sit. I’ll start by sweeping a fairly tight Q, -10 db cut in the 200-500 Hz range.

    As I sweep my EQ band I can hear the other mix elements becoming more clear right around 300 Hz, so I’ll park the filter here.

    Lows are the foundation of great kick and bass tracks, but that’s not all there is to the story.

    “Big” and “punchy” kicks and basses often have a lot going on in other frequency ranges.

    Experiment with EQ in ranges other than the low end to find which frequencies bring your kick and bass into focus.

    As I’ve been EQing I’ve noticed that the kick lacks the presence it needs compete with the rest of my mix. I’ll take another EQ band, but this time a more bell shaped 6dB boost.

    Sweeping from 1kHz-5kHz, I can hear the point of the kick pop out at about 2kHz. In the mix, this gives my kick a ton of authority and provides nice separation from the bass.

    In some cases, adding a bit top end detail can bring out the articulation in the bass. I’ll check it out by sweeping an even gentler broad Q boost around the high end—listening from about 5k-10k.

    With this bass sound, there’s not a lot going on in the top end, so I won’t bother boosting any frequencies here.

    That’s why you always have to rely on your ears first to find out where to add EQ.

    General guidelines can be helpful, but they may not always be perfect. Make sure to decide for yourself in the context of your own tracks.

    by Inflightmuzik

    This music producer tutorial channel was created to focus on modern techniques to produce music inside of FL Studio. Many of these FL Studio tutorials can still be applied to any DAW by using the same concepts I explain with each producer tutorial.

    Currently I teach future producers who aspire to improve their music production by showing both basic and rare techniques using FL Studio 20 (now FL Studio 20.1). I cover topics that range from non-traditional music theory to sound design to mixing and mastering. Each beat tutorial includes tips and tricks for FL Studio and general music production ideas that can help producers generate more musical ideas for your drums, 808/bass, chords and melodies in multiple genres, including trap, pop, edm and others by using the stock plugins they already have in FL Studio or using free or cheap plugins, available to download or buy online.

    Sidechain Compression on Kick and Bass: Clean Up the Low End of Your Mix


    Getting the low end of your mix “tight” or “clean” is one of the fundamental problems of mixing. Instruments that have a lot of low frequency energy, like kick and bass, fight for that precious space below 100 Hz. EQ will only get you so far, but sidechain compression will really help the instruments work together, preserving the character of each. In this video I go over three different methods of sidechain compression - regular compression, dynamic or active EQ, and multi band compression.

    Pultec Trick | LANDR Mix Tips


    Every serious engineer has a digital version of the classic Pultec EQP-1A program equalizer in their plugin folder.

    The Pultec is known for its broad and musical boosts and cuts, but over time engineers learned to exploit a quirk in its circuitry for a special purpose.

    I’m talking about the famous “Pultec Trick,” for boosting low end. It’s a secret weapon technique to enhance basses and kick drums that’s used by a ton of pros.

    First off, I’ll bring up a Pultec so we can take a look at the controls. Today I’ll be using Ignite Amps PTEq-X, which is a great freeware Pultec-style EQ.

    The high band has 3 frequencies for attenuation and 8 for boosts, but the low band has only 4 available frequencies for both cuts and boosts.

    This quirk allows you to boost and cut at the same frequency setting, at the same time.

    Due to the design of the hardware, the boost and attenuate bands aren’t at exactly the same frequency, and they create a unique overlapping EQ curve that can work wonders on bass instruments.

    The kick drum track I’m working with just doesn’t have enough power in the low-end. I’ll see if I can give it some authority using the Pultec trick.

    I’ll go ahead and add a PTEq-X to my kick track. One of the great things about using Pultecs is that they impart a really nice tone even before you add any boosts or cuts.

    I can already hear a bit of that character coming through on the kick drum.

    I’ll start by setting the bandwidth to sharp and the frequency to 60 Hz. Now I’ll simply increase both the boost and attenuate knobs to get that special overlapping curve.

    I’ll back off just before noon on the dial when I start to hear the effect getting overpowering.

    Listening in the mix now, the fundamental frequency of the kick drum is much stronger, and I can feel the lows hit with a lot more oomph.

    So that’s the Pultec trick in a nutshell. It’s a simple, super effective way to bring out the lows in your kicks.

    Try it on other instruments as well. In some cases it can be great on bass or other low end sources.

    Getting the Low End of Your Mix Right


    Getting the low end of your mix right

    One of the hardest things to do when mixing is to get the low end right. We want a powerful, warm, punchy, tight low end, not a muddy flabby low end.

    The low end is the foundation of the song so it is important to spend some time getting it right. Here is a little trick that can help you determine if your low end is good. Hope you enjoy!

    Tips for Managing Low End in a Modern Rock Mix

    Learn compression ➥

    A video on managing multiple low end elements in a modern rock mix.


    In today's video, we're going look at managing low end. I've talked about this before, and I've shown Waves Factory Track Spacer before. It's a plug-in you can get that stands on its own – it does its own thing.

    It's not side-chain compression, it's side-chain multi-band volume ducking. It's absolutely incredible. You'll see that in a second.

    But first, I want to introduce you to my new chorus, it's called mixing modern rock. I'm going to show you a before and after sample right now, and then we'll talk about low end.


    Okay, so I hope you dig that. If you want to see how I take those dry tracks and transform them to a finished master, I show the entire process., or the link is the description below. The multi-tracks are included, so you can mix that song and use it for your resume as well. I hope you check that out.

    Today, we're talking about low end. Now, in this particular song – this is a song from Mixing Modern Rock – I've got a kick. I love a lot of sub in my kick, so there's a couple of ways that I do that. We'll talk about that. I've got the bass, and I love a dirty, distorted, driving bass, but I also love a lot of low end, so I've got Low Ender generating some subs for the bass.

    We've got a sub-bass drop, like an 808 type thing. We've got a tuned bass drop that I've got also going to what I use – it's called the Gino-Hall. It's my sub-splash. What I do is I use an EQ – excuse the surgical spaghetti mess here, but what I do is I take all of the top end essentially out of a reverb, and I'll send elements to it, and then I'll widen it so that the reverb is only sub, and it kind of extends the sound of the bass, the toms – could be used on any number of things. I use it a lot on 808 drops, toms for certain ring out sections, and anywhere where I want to give a little bit more power to kind of fill some space, so...

    Sub-splash is going into the Lexicon 224. Maybe about 4 or 5. Let me actually show you the sub-drop and the sub-splash, since I'm talking about it. And then you can see the widening that I'm doing. A good 40% or so. Here is the sub-splash.

    [sub bass splash]

    And then here's – as Pro Tools glitches and my voice cracks at the same time – now here's without the sub-splash. You know what, let me name that sub-splash. Okay.

    [sub bass]

    Okay, and then back with the splash.


    Alright. Sweet. So, sub-splash. A little rabbit trail. I wanted to show that off, but back to the task at hand, we're talking about managing the low end from these multiple elements. So we've got, one more time, the kick with the sub, the toms that have a decent amount of 70-100, then we have the 808, the sub-splash, and the bass guitar. There's probably something else, but for now, those are the ones we're going to focus on.

    So what I've done is I've used Waves Factory Track Spacer, and I've put that on the bass, I've put it on the toms, and I've put it on my main kick track here, and what I'm doing is I'm sending the 808 and the sub-splash into it through a side-chain called “Sub SC” for Side-Chain. Sub SC.

    And we can see that. Let's pull it open on the bass. The first instance is actually coming from the kick. I'm sending the kick into the bass, and I'm pushing down 76Hz and below. Every time the kick hits, it's going to push the frequency range from 20Hz to 76Hz down on the bass so that the kick wins the low end battle.
    What I want to show you is duplicating Waves Factory Track Spacer and using the sub from the bass drop and the sub-splash, I'm sending into here, and I'm removing similar – the 76Hz and below in the bass guitar, pretty aggressively, and then I've slowed the release down a little bit on the bass so that the sub rings out, and the subs are going to kind of switch rolls a little bit.

    So initially what's going to happen is when the bass drop hits, the bass guitar sub frequencies – 76Hz and below – are going to drop, and then as the sub fades out, the bass is going to come back – the sub in the bass is going to come back.

    I've also got the kick up here, so you can see that same frequency range – 76Hz or so – at about a 70% ratio, and that – you know what, that could be the default setting, because kicks are quick, right?

    In this short video I want to show you a cool technique for getting nice and controlled lows in a mix.

    One of the hardest things to achieve in a mix is to get those controlled and consistent lows.
    It’s definitely easier to nail it in electronic music, since all the material is already pretty consistent.
    So we will look more into live instrument situations where there’s plenty of dynamics.

    There are a bunch of ways to get nice lows, but here I just want to show you a last resort trick that can come handy if you’re struggling.

    Kick drum

    If you ever recorded a real drum kit you know that it’s almost impossible to get every hit equal and consistent throughout the song.
    That’s why so many producers use sample replacement to get it right.
    The kick drum is especially tricky because the lows are moving a lot through the frequency spectrum depending on how hard you hit the drum.
    If the drummer you’ve recorded was way to inconsistent, but you still don’t want to completely replace the kick drum, there’s this hybrid alternative that I use in those situations.

    - Duplicate the kick drum track
    - On the first track, replace it with a sample of choice that has great low end. Since you want consistency in the lows it’s preferable to have only one sample in this case.
    - Now add an eq that has a steep low pass filter and cut everything above 120hz.
    - On the second track you have your live kick drum. Mix it as good as possible from the start. Then add an eq with a steep high pass filter and cut everything under 150hz.
    The numbers are not set in stone. You always have to play around with the settings to get the best results possible.
    - Now combine these two tracks through a buss and process further if necessary.
    This way you keep the dynamics and organic feel of the live kick drum but with a much more controlled and consistent low end.


    The same technique can be used on bass. Since live bass can be such a mess in the lows this technique can come handy.
    Remember that It might be a more tedious process to replace a bass performance then just simply replacing a kick drum with a single sample.
    So what you need to do is to actually write the whole performance in midi. If you have a pre-production-midi track, it will come handy at this point.
    Some DAWs have a feature to convert audio to midi. But in my experience this rarely works properly with lower tuned instruments.

    Anyway, the process looks something like this.
    - On the midi track, use a mono sine wave synth and remove anything over 120hz
    - On the live bass, that you already mixed, remove anything under 150hz.
    - Combine these through a buss and add further processing.

    This technique is fairly simple on kick drum, but I would consider it as a last resort when it comes to bass.
    But if you do have a midi-file of the exact performance, then you should definitely try it out if you struggle with the low end.

    Tips for Mixing Low End and Making Executive Mix Decisions


    Instant access to every in-depth mixing course from Matthew Weiss:

    // A video on managing low end and making executive decisions as a mix engineer.



    Hey, folks. Matthew Weiss —,

    This tutorial is going to be about managing low end, but it's also going to be about making executive decisions as a mix engineer.

    So let's check out this chorus.

    [mix plays]

    So, really cool, but if you're listening the way I'm listening, you will notice a couple of things that maybe could be better. The first is that the low end is a little bit cloudy and muddy.

    Not terribly cloudy and muddy, but a little bit, particularly in the sub range. It's hard to sort of differentiate between all of the elements going on there, and it kind of all sounds like one kind of globby low end.

    The other thing that's going on is that it doesn't feel like there's a lot of movement in the low end in particular. Like, there is movement there, but it really feels like there could be more. It's more-or-less streamlined.

    So let's breakdown how we can remedy that. So, first I'm going to play with the effects that I added, and then I'm going to explain my thought process.

    [mix plays]

    So, we'll notice that when I play it that way, there's a lot more bounce and groove to the record, but I don't feel like I've lost anything. It just feels like the energy has been rearranged. It still feels very full and very powerful.

    So here's my thought process. I have four elements that are occupying a lot of space in the sub 80Hz range. I have these layered kicks, which I'm thinking of as one element, I have these 808s, and then I have a Moog Bass, and I have a hook low lead.

    So I'm asking myself what I want the low end to do. If I want it to sound like this sort of like, heavy electronica, pseudo-rock kind of thing, like a Nine Inch Nails sort of thing, I probably want the low end of that Moog bass, that sort of streamlined, unending low end to be dominant.But, that's not what this record is. This record is meant for dancing purposes, and so I want a bounce to show up, and that bounce is going to come from my more dynamic elements — my kick and my 808.

    So those are the elements that I want to give the sub to, because that's what's going to give that physical energy that gets people to move on the dance floor.

    Well, in order to do that, what I really need to do is therefore take out sub range in my other elements. The Moog bass and the hook low lead.

    So I'm going to bypass my effects here, and now I'm going to breakdown what I'm doing.


    So it's important to note that this Moog bass has a lot of really gnarly, cool overtones in the upper-midrange. So I can probably remove a good amount of sub without even damaging the strength of this sound.

    So my first move here is going to be an EQ.

    [synth, adjusting EQ]

    Right? I very clearly shifted the energy more toward the upper-midrange, and I'll show you exactly what's going on here. I even have a little graphic line to help illustrate it.

    So at 80Hz, I'm dipping out about 3.5 decibels with a very wide slope. You'll see the slope of this EQ stretches all the way up to this bump right here. This bump is 1.2kHz. That's like a 4, 5 decibel boost that it's getting right there.

    So I'm diminishing energy in the low end, all the way up to the mid-range where now, the mid-range is getting that big power.

    Before and after, one more time.

    [synth, before and after EQ]

    Okay. Next EQ.


    If you're listening with a sub, you will hear a very dramatic difference. If you are not listening with a sub, you might not notice the most profound difference.

    One more time.


    So here at about 70Hz, steep high-pass filter. Just cutting everything out of the sub, and a little bump at 200Hz.

    So again, shifting energy. The 200Hz energy is going to give the impression of bass without actually putting low end in there. It's going to be the kind of bass, that primary bass range that pokes through all of these other bass elements, because it's resting a little bit above those primary fundamentals.


    So again, it doesn't feel like I'm losing bass, it just feels like I'm moving it up in register.

    A little compression here with some make-up gain.

    [synth with compression]

    Right? We feel that texturally, it becomes solid. The last thing that I'm doing is throwing on a compressor that is keyed to the kick, so that this bass ducks out when the kick hits.

    Here on this hook lead, I'm doing some EQ that is just tonally making it feel a little bit more focused. This is not a specific technique that you are going to be able to apply everywhere, this is just me going through the sound and doing what I like. It's a pretty subtle sound, I'm going to turn it up for now.
