    I'm woring a lot on this lately, but i kinda have a question,
    I'm search for something that can melt things together, Like my intro to my drop, my little pause in the drop. So it sounds better. I have the feeling atm it's pushed against eachother.
    any given tip is appreciated

    can only listen on my laptop speakers at work right now, but...

    one thing that i have recently learned is the importance of compression on the whole track. it only needs to be a little (or maybe not, depends on the track), but a compressor on the main output can really "glue" a track together. i actually learned this by putting my drums through a separate bus and compressing them. it was a real eureka moment, because even though i had good drum sounds, i didn't realize how separated they sounded until i grouped them under one compressor. all of the sudden they sounded like one drum kit! so maybe this concept can help you...

    i use lots of automation... low cut freq/high cut freq volume and any modulation....along with uplifters, kicks and snares,

    they all add up to bring all the energy towards ur drop.
