Mixing 808's to translate everywhere..

Tracks that are heavy with 808's how do these translate on iphones or laptop speakers, not too well right? Is it common to put and underlying kick in so it can be heard on devices the 808s wont make it trough on? What if that underlying kick takes away from the original vibe of the 808's?

I realized im really a noob with 808's ive started to use them a little more recently and I have a client who wants 808 everything.

It can depend on the arrangement, the more sparse the more you can let the 808 breath. Saturation and distortion are great tools, usually in parallel. You can use a gate to "control" the 808 a little more. This episode on Pensados Place is a great tool: How to Mix 808′s – Into The Lair #94 | Pensado's Place . I like the example because it seems like a fairly crowded arrangement but the techniques work well.

Great thank you for the link.. Yea I mean i can get those 808's sounding nice, but to get them audible on small systems is a challenge.. Interested to know what steps others take don't think ive seen that ITL. cheers

Listen to a song the has 808s in it on your phone. If you can hear anything of the 808s then you must have a hell of a phone.
