Not enough bottom end in your mix? Kick drum a bit weedy, thin or disappointingly lightweight? Using Logic Pro's SubBass plug-in is a well documented method for synthesising very low frequencies where none previously exist, but its use is fraught with the danger of creating multiple clashing frequencies which can cause havoc and potentially wreck a mix with a mess of low end, some of which can't even be heard, unless you have monitors the size of a house. This article shows you how to double the kick drum with a pure sine tone (no harmonics to complicate matters) whose frequency you can control, in both Logic Pro and Pro Tools.

In Logic Pro:


Logic Proで純粋な正弦波トーンにアクセスするには2つの簡単な方法があります。最初にロードされていないサンプラーインストゥルメントとEXS24サンプラーを使用することですが、これは再生するMIDIノート情報が必要です。二つ目はテストオシレータ、あなたのモニタリングシステムと、リスニング空間の音響特性の応答をテストするために設計された便利なガジェットです。あなたは、ソフトウェア音源のチャンネルのI / O( ユーティリティの入力スロットにインスタンスをロードするとき




テスト発振器が正弦波を再生している確認し、何かをミックスするための適切な"subby"(50〜60 Hz付近で、おそらく)にその周波数を下げて - しかし、あなたはしたくないので、もしあなたが本当に、それが何をしているか聞くことができることを確認してください高価なスピーカーシステムを破壊するミックスを解放する!

Great tip! Very straightforward approach and explanation.

Great tip. I usually use the EXS default tone, but now I am keen to use the test oscillator plug-in
hey, cheers for the vid! i got a couple of questions which are pretty silly probably.

firstly, i set a kick drum on a track strip, standard 4 beat.
i then opened another track strip to open the test oscilator but didnt hear anything? was i meant to open it on the same strip as the kick?

secondly, if im sidechaing the noise gate to the kick drum to i need to convert it to audio first or leave it as midi?

thanks again

The arrangements for doing this with a software instrument track (as opposed to an audio track) are slightly different.

Firstly, the test oscillator should be opened as an instrument in the input slot - it is possible to open it as an insert plug-in but this tip won't work if you do that

For the software instrument kick drum track, these don't appear as available inputs to the sidechain, so you will need to send its output to an aux channel via an available bus. So create an aux channel first, then choose a bus as its input, then connect the output of the kick drum track to that bus. Once you have connected the bus it will be available as a sidechain input to the Noise gate.

Hope that helps.
hmm that makes sense, think i no how to do the aux channel and bus, never done it before but really need to start practising it so i can send all my drums through the bus.

however im not sure how to open the test oscilator as an instrument? where do i find that option?

Open a new software instrument track, go to the I/O section of the channel strip, choose 'Test Oscillator' from the upper of the two boxes (it should be blank, the lower one being the output). Make sure you don't choose it as a plug-in from the Inserts section!
Nice! This is an old school trick we used a lot with outboard gates and a hardware studio calibration oscillator. I used this same technique in Logic awhile ago on a track for a younger artist with a not-so-deep kick drum. He was blown away with how I got the freq's so low, yet separate from the rest of the low end. The key is to use a sign wave!

Glad to see it has life in the digital world.

Thanks, Mike!
