I use Pro Tools LE 6.8.1 for recording. I just recorded a song with bass guitar, electric guitar and drums, and everything sounds good, but the problem is that when I render it/"bounce to disk" the track gets waaaaaaaaay too much bass. So my question is, how do I control the bass and treble in pro tools? Or any other way to do it.

Thanks.

I don;t use pro tools specifically., but here are some generic suggestions ...

First, Make sure your monitoring environment is set up well with no bass dips or spikes. If there are dips it would force you to mix the bass up to sound ok in your mixing environment which would then sound too bassy everywhere else

If your question is more about how to cut out the bass, you could try:

1. Reducing the level of the bass tracks
2. Using EQ to cut out the deeper bass
3. Use EQ to cut bass out of instruments ither than the bass guitar - too much in one frequency space will make things sound very muddy
4. Use some compression to smooth out your bass levels to make it easier to mix.

Thank you. I have been a bit lazy with looking around and testing things, I'm gonna try to do that more.
Actually, I recorded the bass over again, with a guitar amp and trough a mic. Just the sound I was looking for smile.gif

Just a question from my end... did the bass first sound boomy after bouncing and not before?

The bass was just a big soup after bouncing, not that bad before.
