nice low slow bass drum i like the ghost rapid bassdrums too, but snare feels weak. also the top end is a bit loose. you might be able to tighten this with some adsr or gate control.

nice effort though mate

What is adsr and gatecontrol? Would i need specific vst's for it? Or is there a thread to explain. Also when you say the snare is weak should i add another snare drum hitting at a higher frequency?

Thanks for the advice :D

adsr = attack decay sustain and release (also called envelope controls)

it allows you access to a sounds properties
generally:

volume envelope

attack = time for the signal to get at its peak

decay = time signal takes to go to silence

sustain = how much of the signal stays whilst the key is pressed down

release = how long the signal takes to go to silence after key is not pressed

envelopes can control many aspects of a sound though.

with gating, generally its the control over how much of the signal gets through. if i had a gate at -2db then anything over -2db would get heard. you also have attack and release on gates too.

best place to look for this stuff is to do a search on the forums, cos you get so much info and its probably been covered before and in better detail :D (y)

as for me being released: nah man :) i want to get some released soon, but i don't know how to go about it lol

respect and happy producing

adsr refers to envelope settings. Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release.
It's a sonic leash for your musical dog. Stops your hits from running off and chasing their tails.

yeah. snare defo needs to be fattened up. try some compression, maybe! layer another one underneath it. maybe even distort or/and limit it.

but maybe its just got to do with your eqing. trial&error id say.

apart from that, get rid of those extra kicks. its not got enough jungle-feeling to it for those offbeat kicks imho. put some amens in or get rid of those kicks ;)

have fun!

ez

just to let you know i am on a laptop with laptop speakers so i cant comment on the low end lol

im not a fan of the shakers its not just you its all shakers they can only be used if there done right the ride sounds a bit cheap imo if i was you i would try get hold of maybe a rock or jazz sample pack to get your hands on some live ones or do as we did and drag a massive drum kit to ealing studios and record them yourself lol our new tune has kinda the same sort of drum stucture as yours so maybe have a listen to that and get some ideas, breaks are always good just dont use them as they come! i tend to chop them up and change them to fit better that goes for frequencies as well, i wish i could help more with the low end but as i said "CRAPTOP" lol

not bad man kick drum is ok

snare could still be beefier for me personally, get a snare sample with some nice low mids to it so it makes a nice hard low punch ;)
