Bass Swapping - Don't Make This Common Mistake

Have you ever gone for a bass swap and when you do the exiting track drops out dramatically making your transition sound a little empty? It could be 2 things, number 1, your swapping at the wrong point in the track and cutting sections in half which can sound unnatural or you're one of the many people out there that believe you have to take the bass out entirely and swap the basses aggressively , and sure it feels great to do a hard swap but there's a time and place for harder and softer bass swapping and in this video I'll explain the difference between both and give you a strategy to up your EQ game.

Bass Swapping Tips

  1. firstly hard swaps work really well when there's a fair amount of bass in both tracks and also when your new track is starting to kick in or has something going on, as the last thing you want to do is swap your basses and make your new track dominant when there's little to nothing happening as this sounds like an anti climax. I'll show you: Bass Swapping - don't make this common mistake 1
  2. I also find hard and fast bass swaps feels great when mixing into breakdowns where there's already little to no bass
  3. However hard swaps sometimes sound crap especially if you want to maintain some kind of warmth in the exiting track. By gently swapping the basses you can essentially do a mash up on the fly.

At the end of the day using the EQ should be flexible and ideally it gets to a point that you understand it so well using it becomes intuitive making all your transitions seamless every single time, no matter the genre, no matter the transition point. Personally I love EQ mixing and this is by far one of my specialities and in my course I break down and explain the EQ in a way that'll make sense and it'll transform the way you look at DJing forever. I know this is a big call, but everyone tells me, the course below there mind and I am receiving almost daily messages form students sharing their accomplishments and it's blowing my mind and I hope I can blow yours too.
