Im currently using the following track for inspiration:
I've been really trying to understand/replicate the bass in this track, introduced at 1:02. Im wrestling with how the kick and bass is sitting so well together. Usually Im able to mix ok as I dont usually occupy the same frequencies. Im wrestling with how it sounds when the bass comes in. Im not sure if its just sub freqency mixed with the kick, or if the bass has some sort of pluck in it. If you listen to the kick fully opened before the bass comes in, it has a good amount of low end, however when the bass comes in, it ads like this layer of thump that I cant describe, but I adore the sound. Not sure if thats due to the kick or to the bass coming in.
I've tried equing my kick and bass to fit together. I have sub basses/basses that I've used on previous tracks which are sine waves mixed with low amount of square or triange to give it a tiny bit of edge, however Im not sure if Im just not mixing it well or if my bass patch is off entirley. I just can't seem to get the sound I want. There's alot of clashing going on. My kick sounds great probably has same amount of low end as in the song above. Is it the bass patch im creating that may be throwing this off or is the kick what is being manipulated with the introduction of the bass?
Not really sure what Im doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated as to whats going on in this track.
