A general question since I'm not very good at mastering. The problem is that my bass' sound seems to change drastically depending on the note.

I've muted everything but the percussion, bass, and an "accent" bass here:

It gets even worse if I move up on the scale:

Do you have any pointers for a situation like this? I've tried adjusting the synth itself but it barely fixes anything.

I use very little EQ on my bass sounds, normally just high/low pass layers so they don't clash and phase with each other and roll off some of the harsh high end. Are you working in a treated studio? You may find the differences in each notes sound are actually caused by terrible acoustics.

*edit* I should say I can't listen to the samples as I'm at work!

Looks like I'm on the (fairly) right track as I do have a bit of a low pass going with a notch around the high end. If you do get a chance to listen you'll notice that I was going for a Douglas-ish sound.

I wish I was in a studio! Although the room I'm in isn't bad acoustic-wise though so it's fairly easy to spot mastering problems. I can hear the issue both on my monitors and on my headphones.
