There's about a million variables at work here from the source sounds themselves to the arrangement to the recording technique to the mix. It's hard to advise somebody completely blindly on the subject. Do you have a clip you can post?

Better Bass

A few years ago I purchased an Olympus LS-10 hand held recorder. Not long after that I received a project to master on a SDHC card. The recording was 16bit at 44.1, not the best and weak on the bass side of things. In an effort to "up-sample with purpose" I ran the Olympus through a tube preamp. Once with no effects and the 2nd time with the effect called "EUPHONY" on. The EUPHONY up-sampled mix was the winner hands-down. I have piles of plug-ins but nothing matched the big, full bass that came from this little secret effect. I now find myself exporting the bass track to the LS-10 and then play it back into the multi-track through the LS-10..."amazing" is the response from most bass players.

Hmm, i guess you posting in the mastering section because you got a master from someone. Then i guess its being done with the standard tools. Difficult to tell tho without audio.
If you master your own song, the best thing is to go back to the mix i would say and tighten up the sounds there, eq some sounds so they have more space. If those synths aren't big enough, try fatten em up, layer, comp, filter em aso.
