Hiyall! I got a neuroish bass sound that I processed by bandpassing the mid frequencies and making those classical automations(sweep up and down). The problem though is that many bass sounds have a critical, most audible and most exciting part right in the mid and upper mid frequencies which I have bandpassed. The latter unfortunately influences the bass character in an unpleasant way. How could I bandpass and still retain some of bass´s mid frequencies character? Should I first boost mid frequencies and than play around with bandpass or there´s some other way? I know many folks advise to distort a lot, but which type of distortion to use and how much of it?
