    I want some general feedback, things that need to be added or changed, and i want some feedback on the pads as a friend said they sound out of key/tune.

    EDIT: Here is the new version, i added the drum variation on the end of the phrase and on the last phrase of the drop i took out the kick for a bar or two thought it best to duplicate the pads and panned them opposite to each other to make it feel bigger and added a high passed rim break that i chopped up and edited, how would you suggest to transition from the last phrase to the break or outro.

    Sorry it won't let me post the player in an edit, so here's link.

    Needs more drum cadence to follow the melody with the piano.

    Kind of question and answer effect. For instance at 1:25 the drums never change on the last bars they just play the same old beat. Something to give a little bit of tention before the release at 1:26 with the piano. Simple example of this would be a drum roll of bass drum build up. Possibly an envelope filter on the drums going down and coming up again.

    Hope this helps

    Piano is great !
    I agree with IV4, drums need a lil bit more elements like, they sound ok but they lack of that "roll" feeling if you know what i mean.

    Nice piano man, personally i think the sub is a bit to strong and you could maybe mix up the drums a bit more maybe throw in a pause or somthing

    Would it be wise to layer a high passed break on the drums
