What kind of EQ do you do on a kick drum? People always talk about cutting here or there, seems arbitrary to me, are there any general rules of thumb?
Do you HP filter out the bottom to stop interfering with the sub?
I find the kick tends to get drowned out as the song builds up layers, not sure how to keep it cutting through.

That's like asking how much salt I like on my food.

I use whatever EQ the sound requires.

If the kick is getting drowned out, turn it up.
