    I definitely hear improvement!
    But the drums still don't sound as good, they sound quiet low, as there is no high end, especially the snare.
    the low end of the snare is fine, now look for a higher snare, it doens't need to be punchy, just have a nice high end, and layer is with the one you have

    Also, watch out for volumes, the pads are bit too loud, and the sweeps as well
    But this is quite hard, I'm still struggling with mixdown after a few months...

    the bass sound alright!

    definitely!
    the snare still isn't perfect, but it's better than the first

    Snares are just lots of layering when you want a fat sounding snare
    the most general thing is havign 3 snares:

    one for the bottom end, the low punch and the attack of the snare
    a second for the body, the 'main' part
    and then a third for the high end crispyness and the 'tail' (you can put more reverb on this one)
