    really like the drums but i think u need 2 compress em a bit.
    i like the bass line but the same wit the drums it needs to be compressed.
    its the start of a sick tune!

    not bad for your first tunes, the levels seem way off tho, is the bars peeking red in the mixer channels on FL?

    drums need alot of eqing too, what version of FL you using?

    Every body has to start somewhere, When i started out i never had monitors and was not prepared to spend hard earnt cash until i was 100% sure it was i wanted to do. However, if i knew then that if i had a deccent analyzer plugin and used it to read the levels, you have more chance of getting it right. I know a lot of producers who use headphones for pre-production on ther laptop whilst on the road. Give it a go Ethix and if you have any questions give me a shout.

    aim for every channel to stay on the line just below the red, use parametric eq (with fruity) to take the low frequencies out of samples, and lift the high sections out.

    With a high end spectral analizer (part of waves platinum bundle) you can see what frequencies need boosting or thinning down.

    as for the monitor issue, its aint essential for good monitors, but something for reference is needed, a stereo system would be better than nothing. TCs monitors arent anything special, but he used the spectral analizer to make sure his beats punch and his bass shake!

    as for the compression thing, it will give a flatter, smoother sound, try adding fruity compressor and the 'master' preset ;)

    agreed that the levels are off but in the headphones and first tunes sall good
    when you do get some monitors try leaving the room wit the tune playing and listen
    see what you can hear -drums,samples,bass whats the most distinguished
    thats what i do
    good luck and keep em coming
