"You can determine where room modes occur in your studio by playing back bass-heavy music on full-bandwidth speakers while walking the room. Wherever you hear a peak or dip in the reproduction of an isolated bass note, that’s where a room mode exists. And that’s also where you should avoid setting up that’s also where you should avoid setting up instruments, amps, and mics to record"

"If I have problems in getting a balanced bass recording because of my inconsistent playing technique I mostly use a mix of the following techniques to tame my signal."



Gainstage to either -18dB FS RMS or -9dB FS to -12dB FS PEAK and zero in / zero out after each device. This step is mandatory for me to get the most out of my signal chain.


I use a fairly transparent compressor for this task like the REAComp or the fantastic (and free) TDR Feedback Compressor II. The latter one is my goto for all my (synth-) bass parts. I am not a big fan of stock preset but boy…the one and only BASS one from this is the ish!!! Best peak compression preset for this task I have ever heard. Adjust treshold and you are done. This should catch your most prominent peaks. Normally I would go deeper into peak compression and not only recommend some preset (this is actually the only one I recommend) but why should I reinvent the wheel again when there is such a brilliant tool available?


A (multiband) LIMITER could help. While the compressor is starting and working “from on top of the wavefrom” (peak riding) a limiter is doing the opposite. You are “pushing the volume (and also your noisefloor) from below” and according to the limiter approach your peaks will be rounded off (mostly due hard/soft clipping). You can also try to use a brickwall one but that would be my last option. Instead of a pure limiter you could also try some kind of Leveling Amplifier like a Fairchild clone or (if you can live with PC and 32bit only) the gorgeous and free Thrillseeker VBL. 3a) I usually use a mix of both: compression and limiting until it sounds fine.

4) EQ

Get rid of some bad resonances if there are some.


Use a clipper to chop of another 1-2dB of peaks.


Never ever underestimate the power of gating. While other devices will give you control over some problematic frequencies a gate is giving you control over the total opposite: silence.

"The reality of the recording studio lies not in tales of excess, but in the boring drudgery: winding cables, aligning the tape machine, confirming appointments, taking out the garbage. If you can’t attend to these details, you burn out. You become overwhelmed by reality. Because reality is mostly these boring small moments. If you can wade through the drudgery, you can unexpectedly arrive at the epiphanies, the moments of clarity, when time seems to speed up, the creative wheels are turning, the gears fit together, the process clicks and hums. To get at these moments of inspiration, which can last anywhere from an hour to a week, you have to wade through the ho-hum daily reality. There is no way around it, and you won’t find the answer in drugs or chocolate cake."

"Sharewashing does more than just misrepresent things like renting, working, and surveilling as “sharing.” It does more than just stretch and contort the meaning of the word “sharing” until it practically loses all meaning. It also disables the very promise of an economy based on sharing by stealing the very language we use to talk about it"

"Because the hair cells are divided up into 32 frequency-specific bands, the inner cells actually function as a 32-band compressor (our third stage) to protect the outer cells during high levels in a specific range."
