    Yeah basically any words on how I could improve this track would be excellent. Its a work in progress but I thought it would be cool to stop before I spend too much time on it to see if its actually worth finishing and improving. http://soundcloud.com/8-bitheroes/noobcake-wip

    oh yeah and happy to give feedback in return for whoever needs it. I know how difficult it can be to get feedback around here, we are all learning after all.

    I think the freq modulating you did on the drum break in the beginning starts good but it doesn't finish w/ a high enough freq and resonance for the impact I feel it should have at that point in the track (before the break stops).

    Also maybe there could be a bit of a boost to the kick and a bit more high end layered on the snare for the main loop, but I like the arrangement (sorta Amen ish) and beat in it.

    Interested to see how you structure out the rest of the track, it has a lot of promise.

    I agree with what you said about the kick and the freq mod, I want the kick to be beefier and I feel it needs more impact at the end. I will deffinitly play around with these elements and see what happens.
    Thanks for the suggestions, I tend to be my own worst critic.

    I really like the chime kinda noise in the intro, definitely has a cool sound. And really liked the drop. As said above I think the drums could b beefed up a bit! Good work tho really like this 1.

    Thanks for your feedback, il be working on beefing up these drums a bunch. As well as layering more would compression be a good route to take to thicken things up?
