Low End Balance and Punch

Hi Sylvia. Thank you so much for participating in this Q&A. It's quite an unusual stroke of luck in life to be able to reach out to those whom you greatly admire. The soundscape and impact of "Undertow" was a paradigm shift for me as a teenager already obsessed with the nature of recording.

One of the most impressive things about this album is the immense punch in the lowest octaves of the mix while maintaining balance and sustain without clouding up the midrange. How do you approach the low end of a mix? Do you engage in sculpting with EQ or do you specifically mic the bass cab and kick drum in a way that allows for them to coexist from the onset?

Thank you again!
