Low End

If there is one area that confuses both beat makers and producers alike it is the management of the Low End in the mix.

It can be a nightmare understanding how to get the bass and kick to marry each other. If you are into the Urban genres then you can appreciate how difficult it can be to get an 909 bass drum to not conflict with the bass-line. In EDM the low end can be even harder to manage as there are many sounds that encroach into this frequency range.

The video tutorials in this category cover some of the traditional techniques used to manage the low end and are explained in detail using before and after audio examples. However, I have also made sure to include some novel approaches to treating this problem area.
