Hi. Let me preface this by saying, although I consider myself a decent musician, I am pretty new and very green to recording. I find my problems to always be with mixing. What ends up happening is that when I record the tracks, I really love the individual sounds I get, but once I go for the final mix, with everything going at once, my bass sounds like crap, and makes the whole mix sound muddy. The weird thing is that if I solo out the bass and drums, I love the way they sound together. On the other hand, if I mute the bass and run my Guitars (lead, rhythm, and acoustic), drums and piano with no bass, it sounds good and everything seems to fit nice in the mix. Now, I add the bass back in, and with everything going, the bass just sounds like low end mud, no definition in the notes, just a wide rumbling. Now, I know it probably has to do with EQ, but I don't really know how to EQ properly, and not even sure if it is the bass causing the problem, or if it may be the rhythm guitars and bass fighting for space. I actually have a feeling that this is a common problem with beginners. Do any of you have any suggestions on how to solve this, and and tips on places to really learn and understand stuff like EQing and mixing? Thanks for your help.
