This is my newest project. I've been trying to get heavy bass like this without it being over powering. What are ways I can do this? I know that popeye's samples are shit but its all i could find... I would like to see you take the background music out of a mono track. Anyways besides that what kind of problems do you see with the project. One other thing it seems decently wide to me but after the drop its goes very center on my stereo imaging... ways to help widen the track after the drop.
here is the wip:idhitit:

Is this better or worse? i'm having a hard time mixing on a awful set up. my studio headphones were broken, and yes speakers are better to mix on but i do most of my mixing at night when the family is asleep. I have a pair of beyerdynamics dt 770pro 32ohms on the way but I'm impatient. please let me know if this sounds better or worse I have no bass response on there tin cans i'm using.

I love those popeye samples haha, it's something different to say the least :p.

And try widening up atmos and pads and such to use in the background.
But keep the main things like drums and bass panned dead center though.

Already got some points for Popeye; maybe I can make that Bowser laugh from SM64 work after all...

That being said (and it's more a creative difference if anything), they're sorta overused a bit. Track composition is strong enough to have some stretches w/o 'em. Or atleast do some crazy editing on a few of them to make them more distinguishable.
