Something they have all in common: every frequency turns out to be pretty loud, the spectrum basically looks like a big brick (maybe a little less volume when the frequency increases, but still they look pretty massive).
Seems logical if you want a club to start shaking...
My tracks don't look like this at all! My spectra look more like a slide you would find in any playground, volumes are going down exponentially as frequencies increase. Basses are allright, but I can't seem to boost the mid- and top end. This might also explain the troubles I found playing my tracks on my mixer, see previous post.
I compared a track before and after mastering, but no big differences could be found. Just a similar exponential curve.
I tried to turn down the volume on my sub bass to decrease the difference in volume between bass and the higher stuff, but this didn't really work out. Turning up my lead synths leads to a harsh sounding noisy track.
Any ideas on how to deal with this? I have read many webpages today in order to solve my problem, but I can't find a page that describes my problem.

What we also tend to forgot is that perceived pitch is usually a lot different to actual frequency, i was listening to a track with a beautiful sub thinking to myself how the hell did he get it like that, it turns out it had a shed load of resonance and was compressed in the right spot at somewhere closer to 500hz rather than the expected 80-100..
Another example of this is kick drums, an amazing and unintuitive way to get them fuller and 'louder' is to add a high click.
