hats to loud. wouldn't doubt if this was clipping. you need to arrange this a little bit better to in my opinion. Drums get boring for a sampled experimental track. IMO. Like the vibe tho.

Thanks guys.
i know for the drums , drums is the hardest for me. nice to have comments from other people than friends, u know how it is.
Adding bass to beats like this give me a hard time because i often find that synths dont sound to good and i have hard time finding samples from other pieces of music that have the same key as the one im playin.

I like the vibe of the beat, definitely has potential.

I agree with some of the comments above though, the track doesn't feel 'warm' enough, like there's some frequencies lacking between the 500-300k mark. Either that, or the high end has been boosted too much.

Keep up the work.

The reverb is subjective.

It works for me.

Maybe try applying a low pass filter to the reverb.

Yep, turn that hat down a bit.

Bring that snare up.

The filtering is cool.

Sounds like you tried to use a LPF copy of the sample for the bass parts.

If so, replace that with your own bass playing. You might have to play with the bass pitch to get it to match the sample's.

Good. Now in proper GS fashion, explain in detail exactly what he should do to fix all those things.

Be specific: ratios, Q's, the whole shebang. Thanks.
