Here is my “guide” to Bass EQ…
Low Cut to remove excessive seismic lowend and increase headroom.
Boost with Wide Q to bring the low end closer to the listener.
Cut -3dB to reduce mud
Boost makes bassline stand out more in a mix.
Boost to bring out more attack of the string. More “pluck” sound
Boost/Cut here for the finger on the string noise.
Remember we are all after different tones so these points are simply “safe zone” to start sculpting.
