I'm having trouble keeping the bass guitar in my tracks disappearing in certain parts of
the song. I think this is frequency related which depending on the lower or higher
notes the bass is playing means it's too loud or disappears. I'm using Cubase and
wonder if anyone can suggest the best method of compressing for frquency or dynamics.
Hi Thanks for the replies I've re-read part of Mike Seniors book and have cured
this with a multi-band compressor This enabled me to reign in the bass notes at the
upper part of the guitar. The room is just the spare room which is untreated and i
understand what you guys are saying but, commercial stuff doesn't sound like this when i
play it in the same room.
Check your bass as well. A good bass will have a consistent volume and tone.
Play it unplugged with you chin against it...does it seam sound acoustically, or is some
of the range speaking better? Play it in another room. Some not so good basses dont have
a good range, they go out of tune and dont speak well at the top, and just rattle and
rumble at the bottom.
Maybe you have a great bass - sorry if I offeneded your
