I've struggled with this for years. How do you all go about eq'ing and mixing a bass line in a heavy beats stlye track and make it sound good/tough coming through laptop speakers. I'm aware that the frequency response of the speakers will remove the low frequencies, but in my case when I check the mix from headphones/monitors to laptop speakers my bass line is barely audible. It always disappoints me that I can no longer hear what note is being played.
Is there there a mixing trick for this? I've often wondered if people layer in a mid to high version of the bass line so that it pokes through the mix.
