I am currently producing a Jump Up Drum and Bass track using ableton, I have gotten to the mixdown and I am concerned as to how loud my synths should be peaking.
I am using Native Instruments Massive to create my synths.
For a reference my kick + snare is currently peaking at -6db.
At the moment my synths are also peaking -6db, I know they should be below the drums but I'm not too sure how much quieter they should be.
It seems if I have them any lower that -7db they are not loud enough, Even with compression and Camel Crusher added.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could do to get my synths peaking around -8db yet still sound loud enough for my track?
