Bass can't be heard over original track in recording YouTube covers...

    I've had a YouTube channel recording bass covers for a little while now and ever since the start I've had some audio issues that I haven't been able to fix. I can't ever get the bass to be heard over the original track consistently and often run into clipping.

    How do you recommend that I fix this?

    For example, TJH3113, coversolutions, Masuka Dotti, Davie504, Paul Del Bello, etc. all have bass sounds that you can hear well with crappy laptop speakers, but also still sound good through fairly decent speakers.

    I'm going from my bass into my Sansamp which dual outputs to my Rumble 500 head and to my Focusrite 2i2, and then the head goes into the 2i2 as well. I have also tried various combinations of head/sansamp/interface including adding in an SM57 and having only one channel in on the interface.

    Thank you for you time :)
