    Easy does it.

    I consider every "track" I do a work in progress..

    Shifted to a pure sample based work flow, need to pick up on making the rhytmic elements a lickle more interesting and I eed to work on structure, none of my tunes have recognizable "parts" and there's very little hook material.

    Listen and enjoy, c's and c's always welcome.

    I like the first one. Nice space.

    The really spread snare certainly stood out in the second one. Different.

    Spread as in.. frequency wise?

    Thinking of layering a nice punchy, jungle'y snare over it, the drums came from this wave academy pack called "deep sleep" or something.

    Thanks for the c and the, still gonna be drinking my rum doe.

    ok i do.

    I like both tracks m8 - the first one is really interesting - nice sounds. needs more structure - but you already said that.
    2nd one is nice as well - good sounds. nice productions. good mixing etc

    great soundscapes, love the sounds in the second one espcially, nice work, both weird as hell, i'd imagine pink floyd wuld make dnb sumthin like this if they did

    Really dig both of em, mate!
    Those subby kicks you got are really... mmmm nice! And your second track got all those sweet bouncing sounds and I dig those really hard.

    And grats on your 1000'nd post!

    Trying to keep my kicks out of the sub end of the spectrum..

    I think I've got to start layering those bitches, get my punch in along with some low end oomph, without them eating away too much of my sub bass.

    Oh, and check it out; another track I've been working on the past few days, some of the sounds are recycled; deal with it!

    same snare in both and in both i thought it stuck out from the mix in both (esp the first where it is panned slightly right). first one is my fav as the ambient and laid back vibe works for me. the groove is really in the hats and rides :)

    That last (third) one, I love it. I wonder where you get all that energy to add, let alone design/sample, all those fills. After 2:12, the whole mix becomes a tad too leveled, or maybe I am becoming sensitive to sound.

    Yeah, if anyone can tell me how to make channels mono in FL Studio that would be greeeeat.

    They stick out like it's a good thing or a bad thing? I go a little, well.. accustomed to the sounds when I'm listening to them over and over and over and over..

    I hate your snare. And drums in general. Just opinion not fact. Like the feeling of the songs however.
