Icon11 Help on Basslines

Hello all. I've been experiencing some problems with Basslines, today i loaded a bassloop track into the arrangement on ableton live in my music class, then i brought the project home to finish later, and when i opened it the bassline that was working perfectly fine there now had no sound, and i brought with me all the samples i used in there too. I found that very strange, so i just picked up another loop and they were all very low in volume, i could barely hear them, like the loops were all bad loops, or the basslines were really low and bad to hear. So i decided to create a midi track for the bass, so i created the midi track and tried some acoustic bass instruments from ableton, and they are all very hard to hear too, not like some loops that are very well constructed and very loud. I also find all the synth basses that come with ableton a little no-low at all and they sound strange, should i maybe put a acoustic bassline together with a synth bass ?
So my question is: Is it correct if i put 2 equal baselines playing together ??? (one synth bass that has a high volume but no low and a acoustic bass that have the basslow but it's volume is low and hard to hear):comando:

Re: Help on Basslines

does your music class have proper monitors?
do you have proper monitors at home?

If you don't have proper monitors/a subwoofer at home, then you'll just not hear the bass. it's there, you just can't hear it.

But still how come i can hear the bassline very well on some musics even on my pc speakers ? Is it about amplifying and mastering the track later on ?

Re: Help on Basslines

if its on some songs you hear it then it sounds like some of the songs basses are high pitched enough for you to hear/ or way loud

also im guessing your pc speakers are bad, but you also have to remember that there is like regular bass(what pc speakers should pick up), and subbass, where its more felt then heard(which most generic speakers dont pick up)
