Peace, this is a lesson to help those that want that balance between the kick and bass, and not have them clash in the stereo field. There are plugins that can duck the bass or vice versa. Once you get your kick and bass right, other sounds when mixing will fall in place, especially when you're entirely inside the box. Lets talk about it and spread the knowledge.

Peace

The motherducker was by far 1 of the best updates for the MPC series
It really lends these machines to being a laptop replacement.

If you use the Motherducker how dope was it for you dealing with the kick and bass not to clash.
I didn't get to test it out cause l already sold my MPC Live.

I’ve just started using it, so too early to tell.

I will say it is EZ to use which I favor. I also like the AIR pumper, its like the motherducker without an input track. it’s not so much a mixing tool but rather a way to make your basslines more dynamic. I actually use the pumper more than the ducker but I plan on incorporating the ducker more often as the year goes on. I will use the ducker in a less obvious way, more as a “mixing tool.”

My bass often drowns out my kicks, no point in having a beautiful kick if no1 ever gets to hear it clearly.

:worthy: True dat!
I want the kick to be heard just as much as the bass. Baiance and ducking is the key. I want customers tp hear and feel an experience not just throw a track together. Plus it helps with the singers ability to come correct.

I get zero complaints on my method, it took years of study and how to control bass. Soon l will let yah.hear a track demo with lyrics. Im glad l took this route. :-D
