Present Low End | Enhancing your Kick and Bass

Maxx Bass Plugin
A lot of people think of the process as carving out EQ valleys for the kick (or bass) to sit in. I do this to an extent. If your bass is sine wavey and your kick is an 808, you have problems. In that case I would use MaxxBass to add higher harmonics to the bass. If the kick is lower sounding that the bass, you can add a sample with some mid or top punch so your ear can find the kick. If the kick is higher than the bass, you can try adding


some distortion (Sans Amp) to the bass. Just work with it until they sound good. Make sure you check both on little speakers. That helps a lot to find the higher frequencies that help your ear find the sounds. Every song is different.
MaxxBass enhances your bass and is used on many hit records.
MaxxBass enhances your bass and is used on many hit records. This plugin manufactured by WAVES uses psycho-acoustics to calculate precise harmonics that are related to the fundamental tones of sound. When these harmonics are combined, it creates the effect of lower, deeper frequencies. Especially on smaller monitors you can not hear low basses or kicks. Therefore you can create upper harmonics and generate a more present bass sound. This technique is used in todays popular music which characteristically contains heavy drum and bass elements.
