I have a question about boosting bass of a mix. I am using FL Studio, so I have the Bassbooster handy. But my question is: Should I put in on the master channel or should I individually put it on the sounds that need boosting? Thanks
Creating a bass bus should be the easiest in that case I guess, not sure what plug-in you're refering to.
But makes no sense for me to put it on the master channel.
I don't think I explained myself properly, sorry. It's kinda' hard to explain, but here goes again. I'm not refering to the actual bass (instrument/sound) in the track, but the bass of the whole track (kick drum, sub bass, bassline, other sounds, etc). Is it a good idea to boost the bass level up a bit in the entire mix?
Then there is something wrong in the mix. Or the sounds if you want.
You should change that, instead of boosting in the master, i think? change me if I'm wrong.
Yea you are right, bass boosting after the mixdown is bad (or on the master channel).
It will muddy up your mix, if you mixdown is right, you wont need to EQ on the master
Tips to help:
1. work on your bass sounds, little bit of distortion makes them sound louder with out actually being louder...
2. Sidechain your bass to your kick, will enable you to raise the volume.
