    Hey there!

    For a first tune this is pretty damned good!

    I noticed it sounds slightly overcompressed when the drop bass sound hits, the bass seems to be causing the entire signal to duck (everything else gets quiet when the bass starts up, then gets louder once its finished playing)

    I think you might need to tweak your overall compressor/limiter (whatever you're using)

    I'm not keen on that snare sample.It sounds like it has a short enveloped filter sweep going for the duration of the snare hit (low pass filter, from high cutoff, to low) I think a nice sharp snare sample would do it very nicely!

    They are the only things I can think of, on the whole its a very decent effort man. interested to hear the finished product!!

    Yeh im liking this tune man. For a first tune id be proud of that, can hear it needs a little more work like you said, but is sounding nice.

    dig the intro...this is deep... but i like the snare on the unfinished one,the finished one is over-compressed at some point

    yes...loving the bass..also the stereo panning..yup,the snare is over-compressed,when all intrument came in,at some point it ducks like a side-chaining effect

    overall...wicked mate :) i like this
