Characteristics of a Good Mix: Strong and Solid?but Controlled?Lows

Chapter: Audio

Topic: Mixing and Balancing

It?s extremely important to build a mix that?s distributed evenly in the lows. If the kick is boosted at 100Hz, the bass should not be boosted at 100Hz?in fact, most likely the bass should be cut at 100Hz. Always consider the ramifications of boosting or cutting the same frequency on two or more instruments. If you?re limited on your mixer to simple two-band, fixed frequency cut/boost EQ, you must use good mic choice and technique along with educated EQ choices during recording of tracks.
