    not too bad
    needs some mastering. the samples at points are trying to over power each other but for originality

    thank you, appreciate the feedback. I'm definitely working on a mastered version. Didn't catch the bad frequencies till I played it out at a show :/ bad way to find out i know. I'm just reworkin the volumes and eq-ing. Any other tips? especially on compression since I'm not too knowledge-heavy around that area

    snag some tutorials online about mixing in a sequencer (or DAW as they are sometimes called)
    What program you using for this by the way?

    From what i can tell without seeing the samples as you do in production, seems you have no limter in place
    and a good compression setting wouldnt hurt either
    but youll need to set them both on the individual tracks
    as well as one on the master output

    Do some reading.... youll get it im sure

    I'm using a maschine and I think I know how to get to all those parameter settings it's just I get too experimental with the tweaking without having full comprehension of what I am doing but you're probably right about just doing the research and bangin in out

    The groove doesn't make sense half the time. Also its really repetitive. Other then that I dont mind your noises and that you should be proud of cause I hate 90% of trap out there and this isn't too bad.

    I would work on your overall groove. Listen to UZ and maybe even JShawpro on tech tools here. They will give you more of an ideal groove situation

    i wouldnt really be using MACHINE for a full track production
    instead what you can do is create mutiple layers of your tracks
    combine them
    and layer them later on

    for example,
    create your drumline
    then create your bassline
    then your percussions
    ok now play them all at the same time and layer them together ( a groove clip is what this is called )

    Now you still have your rhythm, vocals ( if you need ) Vox, strings,
    and then drop in all your fills and even dropouts

    yes it can get complicated but think about it
    you are creating something from nothing
    Hell it even took GOD 7 days to do all that lol

    yeah i'd like to switch over to ableton someday since i have a launchpad and all but i just put a limiter on the master and some compression to the sub and it seemed to do the trick. I also did some eq-ing for on all the sounds to butter it up
