Tight low end
Posted 18 February 2011 - 08:10 PM
It sounded good on my monitors, headphones, car stereo, ipod dock. But then I tried it on the high end system- namely combination of Denon amp with PSB speakers that I use for home theater. The low end was over done. The Denon is clearly tweaked to have a smiley curve. But it wrecks my mix and sounds boomy. Commercial mixes still have the over done bass but there is something tighter about the low end that I am not getting.
I have done everything by the book. Cut off frequencies below 100-150k for all tracks other than bass and kick. Used an appropriate (I think) amount of compression on the kick and bass. Hi passed all frequencies below 45hz. Boosted the mid-range on bass guitar and kick at appropriate frequencies to let them cut through. Yet the low end does not feel defined enough. What am I doing wrong?

if i were playing around with it on a daw maybe id just try to tweak out the boom with a linear phase eq vst on the master channel (coz im lazy like that). if youve got a spectrum analyzer plugin this could well make the task easier
go on give it a listen, it's good.
