Using it mostly for drum practice as of late, but I had the itch to chop something up. Re-flip of an old sample that I didn't rip proper. The hats might be slightly low. Mixing in headphones is a bitch.

Thanks for the feed.

It does actually make sense...I don't have a proper speaker set up for my PC for now, so I'm just trying to eyeball my shit to make sure it doesn't peak. Kind of a pain.

I'm not really feeling this to be completely honest. The drums are boring and missing that swing. You should try to use a swing quantise template to give it that movement.

The sample was kind of monotonous and there's no bassline. Try hitting some keys/pads in a bass vst and even the simplest bassline can really bring your beat to life.

Appreciate the love...it wasn't meant to be anything special, just kinda got back around to messing with Reason as well.
