Here’s My Perfect Solution for Taming Your Low-end


If you need techniques to tighten up your low-end to make it powerful without making everything boomy, this week’s video is for you.

In today’s Step By Step Mixing hip-hop series, we’ll be covering balancing the kick drum with the 808.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • Creating separation between the 808 and kick with EQ
  • How to find the dominant frequencies of each low-end instrument
  • Where exactly to filter the low end to tighten up the mix and how to use multi-band compression to tame boominess
  • How to use artificial low-end enhancers to add more power to your low end
  • Why you should check your low-end for translation at the beginning of the mix

I hope you found this useful. Make sure you subscribe to the Youtube channel so you don’t miss the next video in the series.
