Can anyone provide their general step by step for recording, mixing, and mastering Bass? I know its generally a good idea to compress in stages - during tracking, during mixing, and at the mastering stage. Which ratio and threshold settings do you use at each stage? attack / release settings? I have experimented with lots of mixes, and I still cant seem to acheive the right balance between unwanted "boomy" bass, and an over-compressed "squashed" sound.
