Mixing Bass


I have two wav-tracks, one with the rhythm and one with the synth-sounds. I want to mix them together in audacity, but the bass of the kickdrum always oppresses the sound of the synth (they get quiter or, when i have a bassline, it gets distorted).

How do i avoid this?

Thanks in advance!

Use the “track Gain sliders” so that you have a balanced mix that does not distort.
The track Gain sliders are duplicated in the Mixer Board (View menu > Mixer Board).
