    every time the kick hits in this track theres an audible crunchy noise, unsure what the hell it might be, ideas? safe :)

    I don't really hear a click, per se. What I do hear is that your kick has tons of low end to it. It is definitely muddy when the kick and subs are hitting at the same time. By muddy, I mean that your kick loses definition when the sub is playing. If that's the case, you may have some weird transients clipping in your low end that can cause clicking-like noise on your system. I'd tune that kick a little more, and or high pass it during parts where the sub is playing. I'm a fan of big kicks for liquid jungle break tunes, so I would try to save as much low end as you can while preserving the "big" feel of your kick.

    I agree, although i can hear a faint click after each kick (might be a hat) but if it isnt, increase the release on the kick just a tad to prevent this. awesome track man :)

    last note of the melody of each on section (i don't know what do call it), the bass blip is a bit too short for my tastes, but thats just personal opinion.

    Good points guys thankyou for the ideas, i'll try a few out when I'm back at my computer, now you mention it i think it may be because the kick is driven with psp vintage warmer quite heavily, needs some serious adjustment thanks for the feedback too on the track :) i think the second bass blip is a little to short too! will look into it and shout back when i fix it

    nice tune.

    and yeah, id look into the tail aswell, attack could be too fast aswell. and defo cut out some of the lowend of that kick.

    perc is really nice, big up.

    Idk if someone already answered this, but if you are hearing a clicking sound while its playing in the program you are using, If you higher the buffer rate it should fix your problem. But honestly everything sounds good to me :D

    thanks for all the replies guys, spent some time working on it and found the problem, the break I was using had an extra kick in it and the kick in the break had a lot of high end so that click was actually a ghost kick... anywho sorted it now, its shaping up :)
