Deadmau5 Low end: Help plz
sounds like the bass is also sidechained to the kick a little bit too so it'll get out of the way of the kick in any event
deadmau5 layers his kicks -you cant really tell form listening how many there are as they're supposed to sound as one -layering two or three together is very effective -a subby kick together withe a more middy/punchy one, and if you feel the need, a third with more snappy top end. It's all about combining the right sounds and then adjusting the attack on each and eq'ing etc -e.g. you can have a big subby 808 kick, layered with a one with more punch around 100hz-ish + (depends on the kick used and the desired sound) with a band pass filter on it so the desired hit comes through without getting in the way of the other kick or other sounds.

Everything below that is noises and kick that have no musical value. There's a huge downward-pitch-bend kick fundamental at 58-40Hz which is definitely designed to wobble the perceived bass note.

I read somewhere that he prefers to leave out any extreme subs in favour of making his tracks friendly to all playback systems.
