This week’s tutorial is a must-have guide to mixing your 808s & kicks together like a pro!
808 & kicks are used in several songs & if you’re not using an 808, chances are you’re using some type of bass instrument for your low end; this tip also works for bass & kick!.
Mixing your kick & 808/bass instruments together is one of the biggest challenges there is for anyone mixing a song. Both instruments play a big role in how the overall record sounds & feels.
Getting the mix wrong for these two instruments can be costly to the quality, but it’s a common problem for most.
