    Default stopping beats from phasing?

    Is there any way to stop your bass kick from phasing out when you are playing two tracks together?

    ...you mean the track is drifting?. I guess sync the tempo better?. Tighten the beat grid?. If it drifts on its own, try warping it to lock it into a set tempo.

    general rule of thumb in my book, never have 2 kick tracks running at full blast at the same time ever. one should always be dominant, the other eqed out. then you can switch.

    yeah thats what I was getting at. When I have two tracks with similar kicks playing together they phase each other out and you get almost no bass punch on the kick, but as you said I guess I've just got to get a bit more reckless with the EQ.
    Cheers!

    reckless at times could also mean "creative"... there was a good article on the homepage about creating tension... this site is your friend!

    kicks/hats/snares, if they're close to the same freq. as each other they *will* phase each other out, or just sound plain weird.

    you don't need two of the same sounds going over each other anyway, think of the mix as one long song: you wouldn't put two identical kicks right under each other in a song would you?

    yeah, after eqing each one carefully to avoid phrase issues, especially in the low end
