This technique can also be used in hip-hop, rap, house and big beat to help create room in the mix. Since these often have particularly loud bass elements that play consecutively with the kick, the different sounds can conflict, muddying the bottom end of the mix. This can be prevented by feeding the kick drum separately into the side-chain inputs of the compressor, with the ratio set to 3:1, with a fast attack and medium release (depending on the sound). If the bass is fed into the compressor’s main inputs, every time the kick occurs the bass will drop in volume, making space for the kick thereby preventing any conflicts.

He or she will obviously need to breathe between the verses, and if they’re about to scream something out, they’ll need a large intake of breath before starting. This sharp intake of breath will make its way onto the vocal recording, and while you don’t want it to be too loud, at the same time you don’t want it totally removed either otherwise it’ll sound totally unnatural – the audience instinctively know that vocalists have to breathe! ) will feature a range control. Fundamentally, this is a volume control that’s calibrated in decibels allowing you to define how much the signal is attenuated when it falls below the threshold.

Most important of all, dance music relies heavily on the energy of the overall ‘punch’ produced by the kick drum, which comes from the kick drum physically moving the loudspeaker’s cone in and out. The more the cone is physically moved, the greater the punch of the kick. This degree of movement is directly related to the size of the kick’s peak in relation to the rest of the music’s waveform. If the difference between the peak of the kick and the main body of the music is reduced too much through heavy compression, it may increase the average signal level but the kick will not have as much energy since the dynamic range is restricted, meaning that all the music will move the cone by the same amount.
