    Sounds good, i'd take out that low tom/kick when the pad kicks it at :43ish and add some steady drums and a long steady 1 note per bar sub bass

    i like it. pads are a bit loud compared to the percussive stuff (i do like the amen being background though)

    pad = chord on a string like sound. bass = one note or so very low on a very low pitched sound. its not as bad as all that, really.

    Best get teaching yourself how to make some twisted basslines then :p

    bare in mind, you can make nasty bass with a synth or you can make nasty bass with some samples of dogs barking or anything really.

    The key is C major. Just to help you out on that front

    don't bother learning, you'll just end up sounding like everyone else. keep experimenting :)

    well you know a pad is a sustained note/chord/inharmonic sound and bass refers to a frequency range. just about any synth can make either of those things and just about any sample can be turned into either of things.

    timestretch, pitch shift, and reverbs are ways to approach this. convolution reverb is probably the method i use the most (this isn't how it works, but you can imagine for each discrete sample in the impulse file triggering the source input but filtered to the frequency content of the discrete sample, so quite easy to "smear" a sound).
