Whether you need some help nailing down the recording process or you’re looking to add some serious firepower to your bass mix, Basscrusher: A Guide to Bass Tone can help lead you down the right path.
Somewhere in the book of metal music, it’s said that the key to a great song is in the brutality of the bass. I don’t know if that’s true, but I do know that a brutal and brash bass tone is something that I feel in my soul every time it punches me in the gut.
Sonically, there’s nothing like it. That bone-rattling powerhouse fills out the bottom end of your production, acting as a foundation for the rest of your mix. It pairs and melds with your kick drums. It fights and claws its way through the mix to find it’s own space amid the madness and chaos.
Great bass tone starts with the recording, but needs to be molded and maintained through the editing, mix & mastering sessions to come out as a wickedly vile underpinning of even the most hardcore song. Through this guide, you’ll learn exactly what it takes to achieve that in every step of the process.
By the end, you should have all the tools necessary to achieve sick bass tones in any session. Take what you learn and apply it to help live tracked or programmed bass sit perfectly at the bottom of every production. Use the production tricks you pick up along the way to help your bass cut through in dense mixes for any genre; do what others simply don’t know to do to get the sound you want.
There’s nothing to be sacrificed and everything to be gained from knowing great bass tone inside and out.
