I just read somewhere that Andy uses a multiband comp on the bass in his mixes. I sometimes do it and it sounds good, but you have to take care about the amount of comp and where you compress to, else it can sound flat. I use the Waves C4 these days and I only compress the 40-250 Hz area. How do you guys do to get great, big but tight bass sound ? (I know it's the tracking etc, but once you have a great tracked sound ?) EQ-wise I always highpass the bass around 50-100 Hz depending on the sound, then cut a few dbs around 80 Hz to make room for the kick, and sometimes a little cut in the low mids too. I'm particularely impressed by Daniel Bergstrand bass sounds, sometimes the bass sound sooo big it's incredible, and that without eating the kick drum, guitars etc., insane amount of low end there but still tight !!
