Bass Exciter

Bass Exciter

Audiotent Tip 376. Bass Exciter.

If your bass feels slightly muddy or undefined in the mix, try adding a subtle exciter to enhance the upper harmonics.
This technique can often bring the bass more up front and give an extra bite to cut it through the track.
Watch out for any undesired distortion in the lowest frequencies as too many harmonics there can also make the bass sound muddy.
If you use FabFilter Saturn and are looking for new presets to make your music jump out of the speakers, try our latest Saturn Expansion Pack here.
