    In this tune here, when the first bass note hits, it sort of explodes, as in it sounds extra loud. However it doesn't clip on any of the meters. I'm just curious why theres this boom effect and how to stop it.

    Maybe there is some fast envelope attack on filter cutoff or resonance? Or if you use a sample, it might start somewhere else than 0db.

    if this is something your making, and want to get rid of, then just make a tiny automation on the attack or volume.

    why is it that sometimes automation can cause the bass to clip?
