    Well, everything is basically done, I just need to master the drums better. The drums sound ok, the cymbals are a little loud, but its home recording, what can I really do...

    Anyways, I have AUDACITY, and SOUNDFORGE 7.0, what can I do to make the drum track louder? Not louder, but bassier, the bass drum can be hear, but with all gutiars and vocals, you can hardly hear it. I tried doin a bass boost, but i dont know which frequency to boost without the drumset sounding extremely echo and in a stadium type sound.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Are the drums recorded separatly or do you have a mixdown to a stereo or mono track?

    Try raising 32 Hz and 64 Hz on the drum track to try and bring out the kick. And if the cymbals are too loud try scooping out some 8-20kHz
