    well i made my first ever drum loop on reason 4 using redrum and programmed it into the sequencer, but im having a little trouble getting it to sound "on time" in some parts it sound as if its just a millisecond out and ive been tweaking it about for ages and no success. so heres the sample, tell me what you think and how i could improve it. http://www.mediafire.com/?eyki3mwflnm

    (shit, i didnt leave enogh room at the end for the reverb so it cuts out at the end)

    Mate drum don't have to be 100% quantized, I think if you have the last snare in a bar in beat it keeps momentum or something.
    offbeat hits can give it a good groove

    its probably just the way uv arranged the notes in the sequencer if im honest mate, id say the notes which sound "out of time" sound more than milliseconds out!
    phat kick tho
