    Try making two multiples of your bass. Set one synth channel all the way to the left speaker and the other two the right. Now tweek them a little or a lot until you have the exact sound you want. I am no expert but I am finding that having multiple synths with slight variance can really fatten up your sound. I am not sure why setting one synth to the right and one to the left sounds better but it usually does.

    yo man, i know what you mean about the first drop, but i think your bass is fucking slick,
    my advice would be too lose the ambience just before the drop, adding a pad ontop of your bass kinds of takes away the rawness,
    i think maybe a big crash or something on the drop would add to that sort of renegade hardware sound,
    really feeling this, proper low roller, get us a 320 when you're done pls (y)

    Thanks for listening. Will give those tips a go. The drop was just not working at all so I just mashed some samples together.
    Glad your digging it

    feelin the vibe on this for sure, I would add a nice highpass filter to that atmos right before the drop, give it some silence then let the bass kick. but other than that its a dope tune could have a few more atmospheres in thru out the tune but thats just my personal taste. really dig the drums

    really liked the drums too, some of the bass levels seemed a bit rough on my end.
    Nice tune.

    Bass could have been great, if it dident resonate as much as this. Ur bass needs some midrange aswell.
