Hello, this is Brandon with another Mix Minute, and today let’s get your kick and bass working together during production so you don’t have to fix it during mixing.

This kick sounds punchy and has a healthy low end. But when we bring in the bass, the low end of the kick gets lost. All we hear is attack.

Looking at MMultiAnalyzer, we can see that the kick and bass fundamentals are overlapping. To fix this, we can tune the kick drum away from the bass fundamental.

This technique demonstrated on Storm Of Particles’s “Of Ice And Hopeless Fate”. Get a copy of these multitracks free from the cambridge educational multitrack archive. http://cambridge-mt.com/ms/mtk/#StormOfParticles
