How to Get Your Bass to Cut Through on Small Speakers


If you want to make your bass cut through on small speakers, this week’s video will let you in on a little secret.

If you use a parallel bass track, with some EQ and saturation, it’ll add that extra dimension in the high-mids that helps your bass get heard when you play it on standard consumer speakers or shitty earbuds.

That way you won’t muddy up your mix but you’ll have plenty of bass guitar energy in the middle frequencies.

The track in the video is called Fire (and it certainly is 🔥), by the UK-based artist Chris McConville. I mixed and mastered the record and he released it last week, so check it out on Spotify here and add it to all of your playlists.

Watch the video below for my not-so-secret, but oh-so-useful, parallel bass cut through trick:

The Parallel Processing Masterclass

Parallel processing is something I believe will add that final 10% to your mixes that you feel is lacking, which is why I added the Parallel Processing Masterclass as a free bonus to my Mixing With 5 Plug-ins course.

If you’d like to know more about parallel processing and how you can use EQ, compression, reverb, delay, and saturation to create great mixes in your home studio, check out the course below:
