    So, I've been trying 100-ish BPM stuff lately to hopefully learn some new things.

    any thoughts?

    Really nice. I like it. I would bring the drums much more in. Sometimes they are not even heard in the track. At all. And what I would suggest is to bring in that flute-ish melody that comes in the last part of the track (it joins in with the neuro melody if you are getting which melody I am referring to)

    It's just the kick that gets absorbed by the bass isn't it?
    I'm upgrading to Cubase 7 full version in a month, so i can fix a lot of that with sidechain compression fortunately :)

    Thanks for the input!

    It's an electric spark sample I found..somewhere years ago. No idea what it's from.

    Yeah it was getting absorb and a high-hat was taking what is left of the kick. Looking forward to hear the full fixed version :)
