This sounds way better that the stuff I’ve heard from you. I think you have to look better ono some issues like in an example. your coordination playing bongos is very weak. So maybe you should practice more or use rough listening guides to help you coordinate more.
The percussion issue. In this case, the perc is so flat, the fills are just a repetition of snares 4 or 6 points in a 16 step sequencer. you could add a little movement and expression adding levels to each hit. generally in a 4 steps fill you could use something like 7589 if 1 was the softer level and 10 the loudest. You can download midi percussion loop files and see how the levels in the percussion gives expression to a whole piece even if you use just one sample.
What kind of software are you using? Nowadays all the sequencers let yo do a decent work if you know the basics.
What software are you using to produce?

Thank you for the incredibly backhanded compliment. I’m well-aware that the sounds of my percussion and their levels are the biggest problem on my work, it’s something that’s difficult to replicate a good feel for digitally. I will take what you said into consideration, the bongo playing was really just a last minute addition to the track and is not as mastered as I want it to be (hence it being very loud, which might also make it sound a bit). I’m going to try experimenting with different loops for tracks in the future. As for software I primarily use Ableton Live. Anything you reccomend?

Try the drum midi loops files, It’s a handy way to learn how is the flow in the percussion to give expression with the levels.
For software, I tihnk the cubase is more advanced but I use fruity, It’s ok for me. Ableton has its possibilities, you could do what I mentioned with ableton.

I just signed up on SampleSwap, and I wanted to thank you for sending me the site, it’s a great resource for samples. I’ve been considering getting FruityLoops, I mean, after seeing what 9th Wonder can do with just that I’m curious. I love Ableton though and I’m experimenting with percussion levels and sounds on it.
