    Like i said in the original post it was a WIP and now I have reposed an improved version of the song maybe this time I might get some input on the progress of the song.
    This is the acapella version. I have wrote lyrics for this song. you will see the direction i went with this song when i post the version the lyrics. finding time to record lyrics at home its a challenge because of my daughter and how noisy she is. hahaha ive never meet someone so loud lol. anyways am planing on getting it finished by this weekend but we will see.
    comments and criticisms wanted. Don't be afraid to tell me what u dislike about it I'm a big boy constructive criticism will only help me in the long run.

    Could do with a proper build up, break down and drop IMO, right now everything is already in place right from the start, there's no hinting at what's coming later on, no building of tension and no surprise when what I guess is supposed to be the drop hits.

    Could do with some filter automation, incidental sounds and effects, mixdown sounds alright, maybe the drums could be a bit more prominent though.

    Thank you it's about time someone said something, so now the breakdown... intros and build-ups never been good at,right now I'm more working on mixing.needless to say thank you for that suggestion. What do you you mean by incidental sounds and effects? Are you meaning like random segments of sound in a rithmatic fashion?
    Thanks about that comment on the mixdown usually its poor. Ha ha improvement!
    What personally would you a automate the sub-low?
    I've been trying to make it work for a while, same with the drums.

    Basically you need to cut the lowest couple of hundred hz from everything but the bass, sub and kick - and cut the bass and kick around 90hz. Make sure your kick is hitting around 100hz and snare around 200hz.

    Cut the very top few thousand hz from everything but the hats, cut the master at <30 and >16000hz, peak the drums a few db higher than the bass and everything else a few db lower than the bass again.

    Listen to tunes and note down - physically, on paper - how they're structured, make little drawings as if you're plotting elements down in your DAW.

    By incidentals I mean sounds that show up once or twice in the whole tune, just little things to break the monotony, a pad before the breakdown, a drum hit with a lot of delay on it, etc.
