    Does this sound off to anyone? I've been messing around with the timing of this bass for an hour and it still sounds off :/

    i think the bass sounds really tight mate.
    sounds like you've got some decent atmos pads going on the background so i don't think it needs to be full of bass throughout,
    all sounds good but after the little mid patch in the middle, maybe wait half a bar or so to bring the bass back in, give it a bit of space, if not try taking the little stabs out at the very end of the bar because it might possibly sound a little rushed.
    good work though, keep us posted

    I'd say you want a point in the loop where there is just drums, bass sounds a little too constant for me(towards the end maybe even just put a different bass timbre). Great vibes though.

    On second hearing you really should change lfo time right at the end, but I'm sure you know this.

    hard to say but i think the attack might be too long, just barely

    EDIT: that was listening to your first version. the updated one sounds on point.

    such a good feeling
