All, I realize this has been asked a million times in a million different ways. I am recording my first full album project with a band and am having tons of problems getting the bass and kick drum to standout right in the mix and get them seperated enough to distinguish them from each other. I have mixed each song at least 10 times in 10 different ways yet am still not satisfied with the outcome. The kick drum (on most songs) sounds perfect at around 115hz, with the midrange scooped around 600hz and then a small peak at about 2.4khz to get the snap. The bass has a good tone across the spectrum but lacks some articulation once mixed down. To try to compensate for this lack of articulation I tried adding just a few db in at 400 hz and 800hz. The problem I am having is that the kick and bass tend to blend together or mask each other at certain times. I haven't been able to come up with anything that seems to help. Any advice is appreciated...and I realize that anything you throw my way is subjective and is really going to need to be filtered through the needs of the specific song. What I am looking for is merely a starting point from which I can adjust to make the low end of the song sound better. Thanks!! Mike T.
