Kick and Bass guitar on VU meters


Post by bligovdashakh »

Hello all,

Recently i've been metering on the VU meter (-18db) i'm setting my kick on -3db and introducing my bass guitar until i read 0db on the VU meter, this tip is all over the internet, It works good with electronic music but whenever i try it with an actual recorded bass guitar, the bass sounds much higher in volume than the kick and it's not balanced at all with the kick, any suggestions what i'm doing wrong here?

Thank you!
