Hello Guys,
I was wondering if someone could give me a tip on how I should mix a bass and kick that both play at the same time most of the time. Kinda like they do in this song

I find that using a sidechain compressor with the kick signal into the bass isn't a good idea because I can barely hear the bass right after and if I turn it up it defeats the purpose of the sidechain?

Any suggestions?

maybe sidechain an EQ and have the bass notch out the main freq of the bass/kick drum allowing the fundamental of the bass/kick drum to come through and the bass notes to 'play' around that freq.

they also make a plug to aid in this...

just a suggestion...
