Does sub-bass need to be in Key?
Certain keys work well for subs, while others don’t. For example, notes between F0-A0 in the sub-bass range are a good balance between good subwoofer reproduction and audibility. In other words, you feel it AND hear it. This is why many songs featuring heavy bass are typically in F Minor, F# Minor or G Minor.
What notes are best for sub-bass?
G is, for me personally, the best key to write in for good sub-bass, but generally anything from F to A works well. C is a particularly difficult key to produce sub-bass in, but as always there are exceptions to the rule. Use a spectrum analyser to see where your bass is peaking.
Where can I EQ sub-bass?
Try this: the energy of your sub bass can hit somewhere in the 40 to 60 Hz range. Since that’s accounted for, high-pass the kick drum up to 60 Hz, and focus its energy an octave higher, around 120 Hz. This is the basic principle of mixing subs alongside other low-end elements in a production.
How do I make my sub-bass deeper?
Try a different pattern that works with your track. Have the main frequency (the frequency that defines your sound or the one with most ‘energy’) of your sub-bass hit between 40-60 Hz. Make your kick hit about an octave higher, around 120 Hz. That way it won’t interfere with your bass too much.
How do I make my sub-bass more powerful?
How do I make my bass deeper?
For deep bass, you’re going to want to use a low-pass filter to cut out the higher frequencies of the bass notes, and then shape it with the filter and amplitude envelopes. Using the low-pass filter cutoff, we cut the higher frequencies out. Next, played with the filter resonance to add some depth and color.
What frequency is kick?
Kick drums can be tuned to have a fundamental frequency as low as 50 Hz and as high at 80 or 90 Hz depending on the drum size, the type of drumheads used and the style of music that is being played.
What is sub bass frequency?
Sub bass is a very low-frequency range. It starts around 60Hz and goes down to the lowest frequency that humans can hear, about 20 Hz. Sub bass frequencies are so low you often ‘feel’ them more than you hear them.
What are some examples of sub bass?
Particular genres such as house music, drum and bass and dubstep often feature a bassline that consists mainly of sub-bass frequencies. Much experimental music uses sub-bass, in particular drone music, where the majority of the sound can often be in the sub-bass range. Often, hip hop and rap songs feature prevalent sub-bass.
Is double bass a sub bass?
The double bass is the sub-bass instrument of the orchestral strings family, as it produces the pitches in the lowest register for this family. Audio tracks known as bass tests use sub-bass frequencies which are used to test or to demonstrate the capabilities of audio equipment.
What is sub-bass energy?
Sub-bass energy is popular in dance music, where the low frequencies involve energy from the kick drum (bass drum), the bass guitar and electronic synthesizers and drum machines. Particular genres such as house music, drum and bass and dubstep often feature a bassline that consists mainly of sub-bass frequencies.
