LEVELS – Bass Space Tutorial
Download 15 Day Free Trial – https://www.masteringthemix.com/products/levels LEVELS is mixing and metering plugin that helps music producers get a technically excellent mix. One of the four sections in LEVELS is called Bass Space. Bass Space identifies if any channels within your mix are outputting unwanted low frequencies. For your kick and bass elements to sound powerful and clear they need as much space as possible. To use BASS SPACE first mute your kick and bass elements within your DAW. The frequency bars in the central display area will give you a reading at 40Hz, 80Hz 120Hz and 160Hz. They will jump into the upper red half of the circle if there is too much low end energy. If this is the case you need to identify which channels are outputting the excess low frequencies. Solo the individual channels to find the culprit and then use a high pass filter to clean up this excess low end rumble to maximise the clarity and power of your track. Be careful to not remove the material you actually want to hear in your mix.
