Kick sound when bass boosting an audio

When I do a bass boosted audio, I hear a kick sound but I didn’t add no kick sound to it. Why?

Boosted bass is easy to overload. Overloaded digital sound is not fun.

Set up your timeline to show you clipping.

That will put bright red lines on the blue waves wherever clipping or overload happens. Clipping isn’t just a simple sound problem. It starts making up its own sound and it’s not pretty. Ticks, clicks, and pops.

If you have this problem while you’re editing, you can just reduce the volume of the sound and no harm done. Also see Edit > UNDO. If you Export an MP3 or other sound file and then start getting the distortion, it’s all over. You can’t fix that.

Always keep Perfect Quality WAV backup files of all your work.
