Looking for a modern metal bass tone recipe, but haven’t succeed yet?

I’ve enjoyed mixing this powerful death-core song by David Valles:

And here’s his original mix (link to the raw tracks included). BTW, if you’d like to find some raw tracks or stems to practice mixing/reamping/mastering, make sure to check my multitracks post.

And made a short video overview of this bass tone for you:

Well, the general concept is pretty well-known among the engineers who deals with heavy music: two separate tracks. One for the lower bass frequencies and another for highs.

Hope this will help you to achieve a desired metal bass tone!
