    Hi guys just looking for some ideas to flesh out this tune im working on, heres a short clip i've bounced out of
    logic, would be the first 4 bars after the drop.



    Also bear in mind nothing has been mixed or processed and the bass isn't quite finished yet..

    I know a pad would be the natural choice, but im having a hard time getting the right sound. Irritating cause this is probly the best idea i've had to date..

    Help would be really appreciated :)

    Cheers

    or a more forceful main break, do skull snaps and think combo, perhaps, that could add momentum. also lowpass the shit out of the main bass riff synth, a quickly closing filter on each hit, and up the sub. just ideas you understand.

    I get the filter idea but I'm not sure how I would go about doing it? I only started producing 2 months ago. I made the synth in
    Massive and am using Logic 8

    Add a few more drums between your kick and snare to get a faster sounding shuffle going.

    What are Skull snaps?
