    Well dobe m8, sounds like camo & krooked (have u used the "numbers" drop at 1:05?)
    There are a couple of thing to fix..
    1. Sub: too low, give it more power
    2. the break...sounds empty, layer another break or make it fat.
    3. try to add a pad after the drop, or a soft white noise on the top...cover all the spectrum

    hope this will help you

    ;)

    well, i just like that synth noise, but i did make it myself.
    For the sub, i tried to play it as loud as i can. when i go louder, is starts to overwhelm the rest.. How give it more power? i tried some distortion already.

    Tnx for the advice man :)

    well,

    for sub i work in this way:
    i use reason (imo..has the best sytnhs for smooth stuff)

    subctractor, 2 oscillator, sine on the first, square (for a more deep/punchy sub) on second one.
    a bit of saturation (a bit!) lowpass it at bout 80 hz and...enjoy your sub :D

    DONT USE MASSIVE (i hate it for a simple sine too...)

    3xOSC is perfect for simple basslines.

    What i do for smooth bass on 3x:

    1. Turn the 2nd-3rd osc off.
    2. Make the first osc an inverted sine
    3. Lowpass at ~80hz
    4. Add Fruity Blood Overdrive and Fruity Bass Boost
    5. Adjust to taste
    6. EQ

    Sounds good tho man ^_^
