    heavy. the background effects are tasty, the beat pattern is nasty! but i thought the drums really need to be more punchier in the EQ and compression dpt.

    Yeah nice idea. The drums aren't there yet. The over-all sound seems quite mid dominated. Might need a bit more low end thud and whack for me.

    any sound recorder should do the trick... i personally use soundbooth but a common free option is audacity? anyway, just set the recording option to have stereo mix enabled and boom!

    Great intro - love the samples, is it war of the worlds? that mid bass squelch is a properly overused sample though innit? apologies if it is an original synth.
    is there sub bass on it? gimme a low pass sine wave, come on ;)

    yep... original synth! and plenty of sine under it too? i think its wierd everyone is saying there aint a low end to this tune... whats everyone listening to it on? the sub is hittin around the 40-50hz range from memory?

    samples are from... dun dun dah, robot monster IN 3D!

    it's sounds very similar to the 'grinder' sample from the 'anti-bass' pack a lot of people have. i think it originated from a bad company tune.
    it's hear it on most new jump up productions, i could find examples, but i'm not going to. i'm impressed that it's an original synth though. good work.
    yep, i can just about hear a sub if i kill the mid&high on my mixer and turn the bass right up. is it there, but it's a bit quiet.
