I haven't produced in probably a year and a half, i know the mixdown needs work and i need to add some efx here and there but i think it rolls along nicely so far :) I need a set of monitors so i'm sure my levels need tweaked to...

no problem. i love what youve done with the jazzy samples, did you sample that yourself? the rest is rather novice but just keep at it.

Holy shit it is LOL!!!

The reece is what it is, i don't want it over powering.

What elements could i add? I know it's dry, that's why i posted it, to get opinions.

Yeah funky beat to this, have you thought about a drum solo in this, allowing the drums to go a bit crazy before coming back to the main groov?

I think you could take this track in one of two directions as you have two very different melodic brass elements; first you have the sustained emotional sounding trumpet melody and then a more upbeat trumpet melody that has quite a fruity almost comical flavour to to it. I recon you should stick with one vibe or another. If you wish to create a serious emotional reflective piece then obviously stick with the first flavour but you could have a fun slightly gimmicky party track with upbeat elements, you could if you don't take this too seriously have some real fun with this track maybe adding some camp Austin Powers samples:

Hmm i don't wanna sound like an ass and i really like the bouncy drums and the reese, however my advice is to use less loops from the same sample pack.

I hear ya, i never take music production so serious that i allow emotions to get involved. I'm just glad someone recognized that i wasn't posting a finished track and that i was wanting some opinions on where to go with it.

You don't sound like an asshole and opinions are like assholes, everybody has one!

On a serious note though, there is only two loops from the same sample pack, the brass... Rest is sampled or made by me..

Basslines are definitely not my strong point, give me some drum kits or one shots and it's over but basslines, i need to work on. I admit that... I need to buy another set of monitors, i had to sell my yamahas, i bought a house and everything i had sold everything accept my Axiom 49 Key.. All i have right now to monitor is my Logitech system, it does ok but nowhere near what i need..

Here is what my studio consisted of last year.. Don't really miss any of it accept my Monitors... The hardware was becoming paper weights as i started using software for just about everything...
