Low End Masterclass – Low-End Mixing for Dance Music Producers
Presented by Echo Sound Works, Low End Masterclass – Low-End Mixing for Dance Music Producers covers all things low end. As producers, we all get excited about laying down the perfect kick with a killer bass but excitement turns to defeat when they sound completely flat together not to mention how they absolutely destroy the general quality of your track.
Whether you’re working on a heart-stopping big room banger, an uplifting festival anthem or a more nuanced tech-house track, one thing is for sure, we all have to conquer the labyrinth of low-end mixing.
From acoustic treatment, to mixing tips and tricks – this course is designed to show you how to manage your low end to make sure each and every sound in your track supports, rather than competes with each other.
Discover how to make individual sounds pop and most importantly when and how to compromise to add a sense of space and cohesion like a pro!
How to mix a perfectly balanced low-end – Learn to drive a dancefloor with compelling bass frequencies
Get Consistent Pro Quality Sound Out Of Every Mix.
No matter what sub genre of dance music you’re producing, without a solid bass your track will drive like a performance vehicle without an engine getting you noticed for all the wrong reasons.
To efficiently tackle this difficult topic, we are going to break up the limited low-end space into three distinct zones and discuss how each one is important to the collective low end in any mix.
ZONE 1 – Power/Rumble 25-50 Hertz – This is the sub bass frequency zone. One of the hardest frequency spectrums to get right.
ZONE 2 – Punch – 50-115 Hertz – This is the range that adds the “punch” to the low end. This is for basses and kicks.
ZONE 3 – Smack – 120 – 500 Hertz – This is the high end of the low end equation. Things like basses, snares, guitars, synths etc. can all live in this range.
Using plenty of practical tips and auditory examples, the techniques shown in this course will help shape the way you approach mixing and help you get the results you’re chasing!
