Lousy Bass Sound - Great in the Mix, and Vice Versa

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by JohanSegeborn, Dec 4, 2013.

  1. Hi!

    Basses are peculiar in that they may sound SUPER isolated and just SUCK in the mix and Vice Versa. Recently many bass tracks on classic albums have leaked onto the Internet and Youtube, and it often strikes me how mondane the bass sounds isolated when it makes the Track/Mix sound HUGE.

    I wanna put words on this phenomenon and see if there are some rules of thumb for various sonic combinations.

    I would really appreciate your help and feedback.

    Cheers! Johan
