I know its standard to eq different lows into the kIck and bass so they don't interfere.
But I have a concept, wanted to run it by yall.
Let's say I want the two to
work as one unit, they play very close in time. The bass sustains, the kick does not. I'd
like to put the same lows on both (if it sounds best) but obviously the combined transient
would make mixing impossible.
Has anyone ever tried ducking lows? Like in this
example I'd split the bass into two bands at 100 hz (ish) (no daw to test this out).
Everything Below 100 would go through a limiter side chained from the kick. So everytime
the kick plays, the low end of the bass ducks momentarily, a few db.
bands are mixed together, compressed.
If I wanted to, and if it sounded
appropriate, I could boost similar lows to the kick and bass, and they won't step on each
other. The kick becomes a front end for the bass, a la using an 808 as a combo kick/bass.
