I’m almost done finishing mixing a song but there’s this one bass solo I can’t get right. I never had to mix a bass solo before, the song is kind of a pop/jazz or r&b, not really sure how to classify it.
Anyway, I’ve used an EQ with a big boost on the mid-range + a big volume boost too, so the bass solo can be heard clearly. It works okay, but I feel there is probably something smarter to do to make the bass heard without having to boost the volume that much. The problem is that when the solo ends, the bass returning to its original state doesn’t work, it feels like the mix is crumbling down a little because it seems to suddenly lack low-end.
Any idea on how I could deal with that?
