No worries mate. Well I am no expert man.. still figuring this stuff out for myself too so take what i say with a grain of salt. I don’t think to much into it tbh. Its just a matter of playing around until i like what i hear.
If i have a nice drum groove going i might use bass stabs in places where the drums are lacking energy or where it stagnates a bit which can happen anywhere depending on the beat. I might want to accentuate the kick and snare as the main part of the groove so layering the bass on top of them. or using mid bass to full in gaps in between the kick and snare. Generally i just go off the vibe and emotion. There is no right or wrong with these things imo. The main goal for me is just making the track believable. What are your thoughts on this?
