Learn about Mixing Trap Beats – Bass Management. Ken Lewis takes you through an entire mix, start to finish, of a Trap Beat with vocal samples. This mixing tutorial has an emphasis on bass management, teaching you techniques like:
- Parallel drum compression
- Tuning 808s to the key of the song
- Filtering basslines
- Gating drums
- Making 808s sustain and rumble
- Making synths jump out
- Using stereo widening
- Pre-mastering the mix bus
In addition, Ken shows in depth use of both parametric and graphic EQ, fitting frequencies together that fight each other, making your snares and hats crisp, and much more. Finally, Ken shows you several mix techniques to create clean version edits on vocal curses. Chops, drops, repeats, reverses, slow downs and more.
