    Hi guys, I'm looking for some advice on creating simple DNB beat to start off with. I can't get the hang of it, everythink i create sounds like car crash lol. I put beats in i start with kick then the snare then kick, snare etc... But it don't sound right! I tock screen shot what i was doing. I'm using Logic 9 btw. Along the top it goes 1 2 3 4 5 6 etc... in between the numbers it's got 3 little lines. Does beat hit on all of them?

    Also does anyone know any good packs i can buy for drums, snares, synths and basslines? Or any jump up packs? I don't really understand how packs work either.

    I tried explaining the best i can, any help would be great im so confused. Many thanks :)

    dont bother getting sample packs untill you can succesfully build a decent break and at least understand bass cuz you will be out of your depth, learn how logic works sampling wise etc... dnb drums are relativley simple to make a standard beat, add loads of percussion, hats, rides in the background....
