    Default Is my drop too simple...

    I am not sure what it is but I feel like my drop is kinda blah. Maybe because I'm still in create/critique mode.

    Would love feedback I want to learn.

    You need to spend more time on the mixdown, but aside from that the tune is fine man. never worry about simple things like your drop. Worry more about being creative, enjoying what you create, and mixing down. Art is about having fun, not sticking to some boring as formula people make you think you must follow.

    Thanks a lot. Yeah I really need a better mix which is what's making me think other things aren't working. I appreciate the feedback.

    It's awesome dude! Don't worry!
    The only thing i'd change is the kick when the drop comes in, try layering some kicks

    I wouldn't say it was too simple at all, in fact I love the way it sort of runs straight into the drop. Often before a drop you get that brief moment of silence, but that's becoming a bit predictable.

    Thanks. I am going to do the kick layering for sure. Also thanks for the drop compliment. The pause does sometimes become predictable and I am one of those ppl who just wants to get to the point sometimes haha

    get a harder hitting kick and mixdown... drums are significantly over powering to the drop.. other than that.. shits nice!

    I liked the drop man, good work. And yes if you got some kind of TF voice in there it would only improve it further

    Good Luck
