    Here's a clip of today's efforts in the studio, Back on the DnB after making a Hardcore track and HipHop tune for a couple of buddies.. Sounding pretty thin on my laptop?, but was fine on monitors, so def one for the bass bins.. All feedback appreciated :zest:

    Sounding good over here mate

    my only issue is that the first three 16 bar sections of the drop are basically the same

    could do with some new percussion (or other sounds) after each phrase cos it gets a little repetitive

    Cheers guys. I did try some extreme Gating on the drops (like one of the other sections) but just couldnt get it to sound right. Think I'll add a bit more percussion after the first 16, see if that helps. Thanks again

    Thanks guys. Had a quick look at it today, and could hear where a few tweaks and changes are needed, but wasn't really at the races, so will go back in over the weekend hopefully :)
