Reputedly the hardest part of the mixdown! Let's see what people have to say about this!

To me a track is flat without a nice, heavy bottom end! I pretty much appreciate most tunes that have power in this area.

My bass is usually made up of a few layers, and where the top layers are fairly easy to balance, it is the sub that is hardest to place.

I tend to EQ a hole for the kick, then low pass the whole track and play with the levels until they seem good. Then I'll AB the test with a similar finished track. I then repeat steps 1 and 2 till I am happy. Note: I always finish the drums first!

I wish it were easier!  Angry

Steps to balancing a B-Line.

1. Practice

2. Sort out your room acoustics, play a standard sine wave up and down the lower ranges of the keyboard and find what pitches actually resonate
    around your room (Ie. They will sound louder than they actually are)

3. On the outcome of that try repositioning your speakers, and do the test again... (Keep them as far away from rear walls as poss)

4. Good monitors, really do help.

5. Crtically listen to commercial Cds. Good thing to do is Dump a commercial track into your sequencer and try A-B'ing between your track and the commercial   one (using the Solo, or mute buttons), and make changes from there.
