Oi oi peeps, i was told that the best way to get your kick to punch through your sub bass was to use sidechain compression, problem is, i dont know how to use it properly in reason, can anyone help me out please.
true that sidechain compression is mainly used in house music to make it "pump" but u can use it in dnb for things like rides / percussion and ur kick (as noisia have done so in quite a few of their tunes), i agree tho that its not a necessity, careful eqin can overcome kick / sub conflicts although its all down to the individual track ur workin on, it can help if u have a really low kick
ID SAY ITS LIKE THIS SIMPEL NOT HARD LOOK RUN A EQ AND COMPRESSOR FOR YOU KICKS YOU WANT TO RUN A MAXAMIZER AND TONE IT WITH YOU EQ SET COMPRESSOR SO YOU HAVE A LEVEL AND BY EAR PULL UP THE SOUND WITH THE MAXAMIZER . THE TRICK IS TO GET YOU EQ LEVEL JUST RITE SO YOU GET THAT CLEEN CRISP PUNCH KICK WITH OUT TAKING FROM YOUR BASS .
