    I have a drum computer, a few synths and a four-track recorder at home and I greatly enjoy making simple electronic songs.

    Every once in a while, I try to integrate my stingray in these mixes, but always ends up sounding really awkward. It's like the bass just doesn't belong there.

    The tone seems to get contorted by the presence of the synths. I know I should avoid playing in the same octave range, but are there other tips as to integrating a bass in this kind of mix?

    Squarepusher makes a stingray sound great in his music, so it should be possible :p.
