really nice tune, i think the song would sound even better with "real" drums....

but still a very nice job.

I like the song and the sound of the drums. The snare does get a little thin at points.

I never got BFD to sound nearly that good but I never spent much time with it.

The bass is my favorite part of the song.

It reminds me a lot of Dishwalla

nice mix!!the drum is as good as a real drum
the production is very good as well,just feel if you have a better audio signal chain,the song will be perfect!

I appreciate the continued comments..... I'm going to answer as many of the comments I can in one post, so bare with me. I used the ayotte kit. As far as the song goes it was the artist and I's first co-write, I have another track with him I will post this weekend, and no it's not perfect, but the song unmastered got him an offer from a label. (pending). I agree in a sense that real drums would be different, probably a little better, but I kind of like that manufactured beat thing going on. I'm happy people like the bass, it was my first attempt at playing it on a track. See I am a drummer at heart but am not a well versed drummer, I play guitar, like a drum and the bass like a drum, brent hendrich says I produce like a drummer. I can play a few good beats but can't do a bunch of fancy stuff. So Yes I played the piano like a guitarist/drummer. I think for me it works but deffinately if your a pianist, it may sound a little trite. On the two buss I believe there is an uad 1176 and a slight ren comp, but before mastering I'm having brent bring back the compression by about a db on the mix, it still breathes a little too much at a couple times. Keep the comments coming
