Get rid of that hump at 300 and the low bass will suddenly be a lot more audible. You don't need to boost the real lows, just notch out the mud in the low mids. After the EQ compress the s**t out of it.

While one can certainly understand that luddite point of view, it really isn't very helpful. Tape isn't a fix all and brings its own set of problems in use.

I hope you're using earphone while tracking only, and NOT for mixing.
When used for creating a mixdown in the absence of monitors, headphones will positively lie to you, in more ways than one.
If you have any flat areas that reflect sound from your monitors at any point in your room then you are introducing the possibilty of Standing Waves, which need acoustic treatment to nullify.
That is, unless you like overboosting the EQ in the same range every time as a sort of un-"musical effect"

Sounds like the problem with your first example was the sync-y bass, not the boombass. It's eating up all the mud frequencies (as others and the analysis mentioned.) Try to chill it out a bit around 200-400Hz. It's also hella loud in the mix (compared to the musical information it's imparting.) Also, it sounds like you have a bit of noise modulating the master oscillator's frequency (which is making the resonance of the sync "waver" at almost an audio frequency.) Consider smoothing out the master osc's frequency for more of a powerful sound that won't grab so much of the listener's conscious mind.

That's a completely bizarre eq. There must be something seriously wrong with your room/ speaker interaction. Do you have any acoustic treatment? Maybe post a pic of your setup, with the MS20 in there for a sense of scale.

Furthermore, I listened to your recording. The amount of bass is not excessive. Here it is spectrum analyzed- as you can see the biggest peak is in the "mud" area, 300Hz:

Lo =-6db - 44.0Hz--6

lo mid=-9.6db-60hz-8 this one looks abnormal to me. i would try the low mid cut somewhere between 180-300 hz if neccessary.

hi mid=-24db-20hz-6

hi=-7.7db-54hz-7.3 dont cut too much hi 's in the bass unless its annoying , they are important for the attack of the sound , it helps the bass being ryhtmic

44 hz 60 hz 20 hz those all seems to have the same purpose i think you could do better with just one good low killer around 50hz or something that goes staigth down , not a vertical line but a nice quick dive (use the low pass and set the other 2 to zero )

my comments are based on generality. i didnt ear the sound. always mix with your EARs more than everything else!!


dont loose hope. you have to do it for a while and read about it to get good at mixing.
maybe what needs to be done is on the synth if the eq dont work ?
