      Hi Guys!
      I’m quite new in producing music, also here but I’m very happy to found this place. I got a question about bass processing. I understand the basic processing(layering, distortion, EQ etc.), but I’m confused on one point. When I got a stab or a bass hit and for example I put a moving filter on the mid and high layers to get some movement, the sub is gonna be static and straight. I just wondering is this supposed to be like this or I need to modulate the sub layer as well?
      If it makes no sense than sorry, as I said I’m quite new 🙂
      Thanks in advance!!

      It’s entirely up to you; generally it’s safer to separate your sub to have more control over it but it really depends on what the mix needs. There are ways to get movement in the sub if you want it but it’s also generally better to make the sub a sine wave if you’re going to do that, so that you can have more control of the sub (things can get especially hairy with headroom if you can’t tame that puppy). However, if you’re working on a tune that’s already pretty aggressive in terms of arrangement, if you’re hard side chaining generally there’s enough “movement” already going on such that you don’t need any more. But again, a lot of it is taste and general rules of thumb.
