    As far ass basslines or bass in general go, I use The G-force Minimonsta, EXS-24, and Vangaurd. It all depends on what's in the music. A lot of times EQ'ing and tuning sounds helps out on basslines as well. For example: say you chopped up a sample and put some drumz behind it, but now you wondering what bass sound to use to punch it up. You can actually EQ the sample by itself. Turning the bass up on the sample alone will give the bass thats already in the sample. When you play a lot of instruments(virtual) you almost have to try and use a bass sound that soundz live almost as if you have a live bass player in the studio. Another aspect of bass in my opinion dependz on what drumz you use within the beat. Ex. a "Lil John" beat is gonna have tonz of 808 drumz in it, so he doesn't really have to use a bassline to tough to have his music slamming. Not to mention the fact that he uses the original Tape 808 machine.

    Pt. 2: I think that it all boils down to what kind of music your making. what's genre of music do you create? (pop,R&B,Hip Hop/dirty south/west coast/etc.) depending on the genre of music you make will dictate how heavy the bass is within your track. Like rock music is almost all percussion and guitarz, and the guitarz provide the majority of the bass in rock music.

    Finally I think Mixing and mastering(which I find to be most important) your music will bring out everything. Once you begin the process of mixing down a beat, your gonna find and hear things you didn't hear at first. Soon as I start mixing down a beat I can automatically hear what needz to come up or down, panned left or right. So that bass your looking for when you started the beat is gonna stand out that much more when you start the mixing process.

    Remember, basslines account for about 40% of a beat or even less than that(I think) including the kick you use. The other 60% is damn near all drumz, if your drumz ain't right, no matter how the music soundz and how heavy your bassline is, the beat is not ready.

    keep pushing tho, Im sure you got the talent and passion for what you do!
