8 Tips for Mixing Bass in Home Recording Studios
It’s not uncommon to find yourself in a mixing situation with low-end issues. This is especially true in home studios. Maybe the room’s geometry swallows the bass or exaggerates the low-end. It’s safe to say no acoustician had any input whatsoever into the construction of your apartment.
And room treatment can be expensive: to secure all the panels and traps you need at once can break the bank. Building them yourself takes time and know-how.
Ideally you’d fix all the issues in a space—and of course, we advise you to do so wherever possible. But what if it’s impossible? Thankfully, you can take measures to keep the low-end of your mix in check, even in a subpar environment.
