I'm fairly new at FL Studio. I understand the mechanics but now I need to learn the techniques. I need to learn how to add a bass kick effectively into a song. Right now I just slap any old bass on and it sounds too shallow and weak and if I pump it up with the EQ it swallows other sounds.
What I want right now is to make my bass omnipresent in the song without it swallowing other sounds.
I need the bass to be powerful and surround the melody while still retaining the melody's power.
Can anyone recommend any techniques or give me suggestions on how to go about doing this? If my request is to vague let me know.
