depends on the sound your going for. do you want the modern sound with the annoying clicky bass drum or the classic bass drum sound? the bass drum will determine how your EQ the bass

I tend to just notch some room out of the bass guitar and boost the kick at around 50 hz for a more modern sound.

Yeah I'd be going for a more modern sound, I hate to pester but is there any other advice you can give me because "EQ the bass" is a little bit broad.

which frequencies should i cut for the bass? 50 khz isn't working it just makes the bass drum drown out the bass even more

Normally when I mix bass, I have a heavily compressed bottom end and a routed track which is just top end distortion. I've never really had a problem with the kick/bass mixing. It does probably entirely depends on what kinda kick drum sound you're using (your link doesn't play for me so I can't tell)

This guy is really good for just improving parts of your mix, this should help you a lil bit to get the bass and kick nicely blending. I recently used it, works a charm

Oh and to get that click on the bass drum so it cuts through, boost around 4kHz i beliebe (could be wrong) on the in-kick mic i think. gives a nice hard rock/metal click

Odriunn has a very good walkthrough and provides clips to mix along, and only uses free plugins:

It's more specific to metalcore, but the techniques can be applied to everything.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
