I'm trying to get that smooth high frequency pflumpf (did I spell it right? :shock of the bass drum in professionally mastered songs. Is it just an artifact of a really expernsive volume maximizer with soft clip? Or of tape saturation? Do my ears deceive me that the soft clipping is also a bit wider in the stereo field? I tried to recreate it by automating a few decibles of high end EQ boost every time there was a spike in bass volume. In other words, every time my single-band compressor triggers from a bass peak, a decible or two of high EQ is added only for the duration of the gain reduction with the same attack and release setting of the compressor. In the end, though, it didn't sound the same, although a little closer to the sound I'm hearing in the pro stuff. Any hints?
