I got the live recorded snare sounds layered in! I kept the humanised slightly off-beat nature, but then copied them across the whole track..not sure if that still counts.

So I started with drums and the sub bass. I then sampled down the sub because there was an off change in sound after the first two bars. Once that was done, I changed that synth a little to create a deeper bass sound to sit below it.

A few other basses were created and I decided the snare and hats were trash so re-made them.

The intro melody took a little time to get the right progression and the note-offset to make it sound as it is.

Riser sounds were fun to make, one of them is a dissonance created from bit crushing a sample and highlighting a small frequency bandwidth. Then sampling it down and yeah, effects were added.

I've not decided if this needs an outro yet, if it ending hard is better.

The project was getting laggy for me, so I definitely need to work on using less stuff to create more sounds.

      I just think the main section is a little too subby along with the kick you have, there's a lot of overlapping basses, I have a draft where I made some small changes and replaced the kick, I can invite you to see if you think it sounds better

    Added some live recording sounds using the live recording function, to layer under the snare. Also made a few volume tweaks.

      Thanks Infy, currently working on some minor edits, nothing to the basses though :P

      Going for that Kasra and Enei type sound.

    Cut out silence, tried uploading a pic but no luck. Also tried recording some samples to layer on drums, also no luck.

    I'm not sure what it is (It's actually prolly my minor obsession with dnb tbh) but I actually really like this.
