Preparing for a Mix: Adjusting Musical Hit Points for a Slide Bass Part
Rounik Sethi on Sat, March 28th 0 comments
There’s plenty of useful tips and tricks for getting the timing of your productions just right in Eyal Amir's new Cubase video course. Here's one video showing how to musically adjust hit points.

When preparing your recording for the mix you may be in the camp of “the drummer/bass player should simply record in time”. In today’s world, as Eyal Amir explains, adjusting the timing (audio quantizing) is essential to help locking in the feel of the band.

In this video from his course, Mix Prep: Bass & Drum Tracks, Eyal shows how, despite your DAWs advanced capabilities, it won’t always be able to make the correct musical decisions for you. Instead, using Cubase 8’s hit points he shows how to manually find the desired note when a bass slide complicates the issue.

Using hit points in Cubase (or VariAudio) Eyal finds the note he want to edit later to allow for more accurate quantization later.
