    Default SINE wave post mix

    I know this may be a stretch but I heard a great mix by a local DJ that stood out like a Red Coat in an American forest.

    One of the reasons it stood out was because I literally had not heard a mix with this much BASS in it before. I thought it was just the tracks at first but after asking him...he mentioned that he did the mix in Ableton then injected a sine wav through the whole mix master after recording.

    I never got around to following up with that but Id be SUPER interested in finding out how to do this because it sounded clean, punchy and on steroids!

    Anybody know what I am going on about?

    mwf bass is the thing that makes him stand out.



    LOL YEAH GUISE, LETS ADD A 2K SINE WAVE TO URRRRRY TRACK IN UR LIRBRARY.
    oh wait, lets not. Fattening up tracks is the most hurr durr retarded things one could do IMO.

    But yeah, I do know what you're going on about. Some DJ's have a bassloop going on the entire set to add atmosphere or something.

    I likes bass, pretty sure he just got a really deep bass riff and layerd it with other bass's that it made it rumble... ive read about using sine waves in music before cause it messes with your emotions but wouldnt know where to start...

    Well, you can have a ,lets say, 80 hertz sine wave playing during your set with a multi band compressor on the master that only compresses the bass so when the kicks hit, they still hit, but when there's no bass action going on in the track, you have the 80hz hum.

    Seeing as the hum is quite boring after about 2 seconds, most DJ's that do this use a 16 bar bass loop to "enhance" the music.

    I'd say, try it out in a session, see if you like it. I don't know if you have Ableton but you can send out the Master BPM out of Traktor into Ableton, syncing on the 1, and then trigger loops in Ableton. That way you can trigger multiple loops in Ableton while still having control over 4 decks in Traktor.

    This all sounds wrong to me. If you had a constant tone playing through your mix, it wouldn't be in tune with all or even most of your tunes, unless all your tunes basslines were in the same key and chord. I'd be interested to hear the mix though, have you got a link?
