Hi everyone, I've recently begun to shed my shell of laziness and have been trying more advanced techniques of late that I found to be too much work. Because of Icicle's bass tutorial I have finally seen the light of why freq splitting is so amazing (not just in DnB or Dubstep but in all genres I work in). My question here is: Is is advisable/ok to recombine/compress/EQ these split freq's back together via an additional bus? I've always heard about freq splitting and how to achieve separating the frequencies from one another, but I have never heard anything about the tail end of the process. Example of what I've been doing: (Working with Logic Express) I have my sound that I want to split, complete with it's own beginning process line. I bring the channel fader down to -∞ and send the sound out to the 3 or so buses I've selected for splitting via pre-fader out. I split using Low, Hi and Bandpass filters and then select whatever other effects I desire to be on that particular frequency of the sound and mix their levels to taste. Afterwards, I change the output of the buses from "Stereo Out" to another bus where I compress and maybe EQ/add other light or subtle effects. Is this an ok/common thing to do or no? I have a feeling I'm going to be told that it is a matter of preference.
