    i would like to know what kind of sounds to use as an intro and for the break as i am getting quite stuck, any other feed back would be great cheers. and i the sub bass probably isn't at the right level, i can't really tell because i'm mixing with headphones at the moment.

    Needs much more variation sounds like the same 4 bar loop repeated.

    Cool so far, and I can relate to the challenges of headphone mixing! As for drums in the intro, it sometimes works well to use modified versions of your main drum samples. Chop off a bit of the attack, increase the decay, and bit-reduce or filter them. Using those smaller drums in the intro give a hint of what's to follow, and when they come in full during the main track its a great release. (I've done this with some of the amen and collins drums before, and it seems to keep people interested to hear what happens next). BTW, if you are using headphones, I can recommend the Beyerdynamic 770 Pros. A bit pricey, but a really good flat sound!

    Thanks for the feedback I will definitly try the thing with the drums, my drums are layered so I think I might take out one of the layers and maybe distort them a little, I usally use speakers but I just had a burst of creativness at 1 in the morning so I had to use headphones
