Mix Minute: Phatten Drums With R-Bass

brandonshireConcepts, Mixing, Plugins, Workflow1 Comment

Hello, it’s Brandon with another Mix minute, and today we’re going to fatten up our drums using R-Bass in parallel.

R-Bass adds psychoacoustic harmonic content in the audible ranges, giving the impression of low end that isn’t actually there.

We can use this to beef up our drum shells without adding mud.

Feed the shells in parallel into R-Bass. Blend to taste. Now we have a low end that will translate into smaller speakers, and sound massive!

Drum tracks used with permission from the multitracks to Shane Mychal Sexton’s “Carl’s Jr. in C# minor”. Listen on Soundcloud!
