Yeah...the persistent repetition is sort of what I was going for w/the added random flange-treated hits here-and-there.
BUT, if it is still getting boring, I will test some less-subtle variations.
Thanks for the feeback/suggestions.
The choon is quite good...I feel like there's some conflicting high end frequencies that are competing for head room. A bit of surgical EQing (and perhaps attenuating the highs in the synths a bit) may help that out.
