Kick or Bass getting buried? Try this..
A big mistake that is made by producers, especially new ones, is setting your levels too loud when you are mixing & having everything too close to the red to nudge anything up when you realize something is getting buried.
In this example, I realized too late that I wasn’t happy with how my kick & bass were coming through. Although I’m usually good with my levels, I must have gone a little overboard here. This left me with the painful task of having to turn down every other track in my song by a few db. This video shows an easier way to do that, as well as a very simple side chaining trick.
I hope you find this helpful.
