    struggling with bass, can't seem to get a bassline that fits the strings nicely

    all your criticisms are welcome.

    What's up with that much volume changes in the bass?

    automation on the 3rd band of the EQ, just to give it some kind of 'movement'

    i feel like the bassline needs to be lower down in the scale , i just picked up my guitar and g# for 8 steps, down to e for 4 steps and up to f# for 4 steps sounded good to me, try that :) yeah the movement on the bass sounds good but i reckon it should still have a soft limiter on it cause the volume is pretty up and down, sounds good so far though mate

    Try sidechaining strings and bass,but play with decay time and tension so volume changes or something else like pitch,bands on eq etc..doesn't have abrupt changes..
