What techniques can I use to keep the volume swells at controlled when a bass player pops and slaps his strings? The popping tends to be the worst but the input meter isn't peaking. The bass player is not using any external effects, but does have a built in limiter.

I only recall having to deal with it once (the bass player also had a limiter built-in to his head). It seems like the brightness of the string pops makes it seem louder than it really is. I ended up using a multi-band compressor to squash the highs.
