    So my band is in the process of putting out our first album!!! We got all the levels right in the studio and then sent our mixes to mastering!! When the test master returned the bass is so prominent that now I'm worried that the bass might be too loud!!! HELP!!!! What do you think???:confused:

  2. I don't think the bass is too loud. I think the volume is adequate although it is mostly a matter of taste.

    Great song!
    Amazing artwork!
     
  3. Really nice "punchy" bass sound IMHO.:)

    Definitely not too loud.:rollno: :rollno:

    Enjoyed the track -good job!!:smug: :smug:

    Really in your face, but I wouldn't say too loud. Pretty close though.
     
  5. I say no not at all. Particularly if you are a trio or quartet instrumentally, it seems to balance the guitar and drums well.

    Sounds fine here.... If anything, the vox might be a little light at times, but the instruments sound balanced to me....

    Very nice, well balanced mix. I think the others are right above the vocals in some parts, though.
     
  13. I agree.

    Definatly a good mix. Realy punchy :D

    good playing too. 1 question though: did you get a tone that punchy using fingerstyle or a pick?

    I think it sounds good plus your tone is great. What bass did you use on that song ?

    It is pretty close to too much...could stand to be taken down slightly.

    Speaking as a bassist though...I like it.
