    Just a track I've been working on. It's not done, I mean it's basically a skeleton of a track. My biggest problem is I can't tell if I should add more to it or leave it like it is. My biggest challenge is pads, I experimented with some but it just doesn't vibe with the track. You know how it is when you listen to a track too many times and then you kind of start wondering if it's actually good or not haha.

    Maybe you should try actually strings instead if a pad because all the other instruments are quite organic and the pads are synthesised

    Try using deferent velocities on your drums, mostly on the hats. Change up the snare pattern a bit too. As far as pads go. You could always side chain one in to give it some movement.
