    first of all, hi!

    ive nothin' to say against the idead.


    but,
    im wondering what kind of DAW and which samples you are using.
    the sound is really raw. it need more space. you could create that with more hall, reverb or just more elements.
    of course you need some nice monitors to balance your sound.

    these are just technical aspects. you need to learn them. then you can focus on your ideas.

    Hey, thanks for the feedback!
    This is why I'm here.

    I'm using Ableton Live 8 with Zebra 2 as my main synthesizer. The sounds were made on that synth and the drum samples are from mean beat and crispy dinner sample packs.

    When you say it sounds raw, how do you mean? Like, what should I focus in on?

    hmm hard to explain.
    maybe this is a question to all :)

    it sounds a lil bit "flat". you could stereo your sounds. percussion or not the "most important" elements in left and right position. then there should be place in the middle for the kick, snare and bass. add some effects.

    the quality of the samples is in my opinion very underrated. so choose carefully. which kick? which snare?
    FX:
    try some EQing, compression etc.

    hint: vengeance samples
