      Hi !

      So i have tested some tunes at the weekend on the big PA and they sounded alright.
      However it seemed there is some mid range stuff missing and my actual mid range is way to low !
      so i would like to know what Frequences do you use as a advice to put your basses
      like lead bass / mid / low / harmonics etc.

      Thank you for any advice !!

      I think it’s better if you analyse tracks that sound the way you would like your tunes to sound like.

        Thanks Mind Zero for the response !

        i will look up some diffrent tunes and write out the diffrent freq types of the parts

      It’s good to note frequencies in reference tunes, but it’s best if you look at them as multiples of the lowest fundamental sub note so as to account for tunes in different keys.

      For instance, if the tune is in F minor, as about 60-70% of tunes are, what is the relationship between the lowest note (F1), the 2nd fundamental, and the third fundamental? Do your own research, but you’ll often find that 1st is all the way full (0dbfs), the second falls off to like half that, but then the third comes back up again. It sounds like the third fundamental is what you need to get right. But then if you have a tune in E or G, the frequencies themselves change, but the relationship between the fundamentals generally stays intact.

      This is also very useful:

      Hope that helps

      Thank you !

      I noticed in the vid form QZB that they make their tune in E1 ! I always go down to C1 cuz it sounds alright in the synth but maybe im to low in the end !!

      yes i heared the diffrent between the notes when the second falls off !

      maybe i always was too low as i modulated my C1 with an amp to get a note which has some high frequs in it and then just EQ with a high pass !

      i could see in my spectrum that lot of stuff goes on in my area from 60 to 200 hz but than it just falls off !!

      But i will look it up and work again and really go for the higher notes and filter it more to get a more bass soundish tone !

      Thanks for the Answer ! If you want i can send you the tested tunes so you will see what i mean ! 😀

      Yup, I am always up for analyzing tunes…helps me learn too.

      And the lowest you generally want to go is E1. Not a hard and fast rule, but that range of E1-G1 is gonna hit hardest in da club.

      You might be loosing the mids because of stereo width. Club rigs are all mono. Slap a gain on your master that has the option to convert to mono and see if it has the same results

      thanks coletaral dnb !

      Do you mean to try hole tune in mono or just the mids and sub ?

      I tried to look at the span at other tunes from similar tunes and tried to with a tight EQ to look where the kick is mids sub and so on was helpful but also somhow a question comes oup if i should low and highpass sounds with midrange frequencies or only hi pass it and leave some space for drums with arrangement and also sidechain.
      I am into it for over a year now and can say im glad what i achieved till now but some more is missing and i want to get it 😀 !
