    always liked that snare. needs more action in the build up. I like the 8bitty synth in the background's pattern. bassline is cool I think, just needs to be boss'd out a bit.

    percussion has a drum-machiney feel to it, work on that, but in the meantime maybe just use some quantize.

    u using fruityloops right? use piano roll for percussion and your loops won't sound so short-sighted

    nice tune bro, like the dark sound, nice bassline that drops about 2:40. def need to beef it up a bit. are u usin just reason. i would save ur bassfiles as a midi on reason and then stick em through another daw software like cubase so u can put ur basses through vsts and then have total control. i like the use of the samples aswell mate. nice production m8

    doesnt have to be cubase mate, it was just an example, there are plenty of daws that let u use vsts. u just gotta find the one thats easiest for you. the only reason i advise away from reason is purely the limitations it puts in place.

    the atmosphere about the track was good. agree with sati on the snare, its good. imo though the tune needs more breaks and the wob wob b line needs to be more diverse.

    good skills though on the atmosphere

    hello mate. Real nice track idea. is a little flat sounding. top end is needing some presence. Some mid range bass inserts could really diversify the bassline. Give the snare a little more snap, perhaps a little delay after every eigth hit.
    Great tune mate. Hope you get it sorted

    nice comments i will take all these things into account as its not finished so the advice is good,but as for top end etc i dont get any of that there is still a lot i need to learn.

    by top end i mean boosting the levels of your hats, rides etc. This will give the mix a slight sparkle to its sound and stop it from sounding too flat. Make it sound less muddy.
