my cousin asked me to make some rap beats, so i tried and this is my 3rd attempt at a rap beat(the first ones were when i started 2 years ago)
-update 1- edited effects and added gunshot for kicks.

p.s. one if my plugins crashed while rendering so i will try to fix and reupload.....

(reverted to old render for now, untill i fix the plugin problem)

-update 2-
i just ditched the plugin that wasn't working but now the sound is different, but all the fx i changed are audible now.

I love it

But sadly, your beat is kinda wack. Steer clear from presets, and add some reverb on that snare. The kick has no boom, I usually use more than one kick in one layer. Excuse me if you did that, but I just can't hear it. Everything except for the beat is excellent. I absolutely love your composition in music, it's just this beat was a little off to me.
P.S. That gun shot BAM was excellently written :)

Thanks!! I have only tried a rap beat once before. i tried making the kick be more of a sub kick so i used a single kick and made a sub sine fire every time the kick went. thanks for telling me though, i will keep trying to get a good sound out of my beat. thanks alot for the review and the time! I really appreciate it! I love reading reviews, the good ones make me want to get better and glorify God with my music!

Not bad

It's not bad, but it's not that great either. This can be improved. The violin for example, it drives me crazy. It seems offbeat almost. The beat is fine, but I think it's just the instrument. Another thing, the preset drums. The open hi-hat and the kick make me wanna die because I've just heard them so much. FL presets in general are just... bad. The hat isn't as bad as the kick. If you just got a harder kick, that'd really help the song along. When the synth around 1:00 comes in, it's a pretty nice transition. I liked the bells. The drop at 1:30 was absolutely boss, and it's all fine after that. In short, this is a good beat except for the violin and the kick (and possibly the open hat).

Thanks man! I think i am going to expiriment with this more! Ima try to fix the delay problem in the violin the hard way >_> i will try out other high-hat samples. Harder kick, idk. i tried making this more of a sub kick track, using 3osc sines for sub.

honest review

i have to give you an honest review on this, it really needs to be improoved.

the beat you have is not bad, you REALLY need to work on keeping away from presets, unless you can make them not sound like presets, im mostly talking about the drums but there are a few instruments that could use some work

at 0:34 the bass that comes in is either too strong or offtune cuz it doesn't sound right until it hits the high note.

the bell that comes in midway through also sounds too 'pre-set' ish and really needs to be worked on. listen to my song 'the liquid factory' and you will hear a fine example of how to make preset bells not sound like presets.

one thing i really liked about this song is the drop/transition at 1:31.

i made the bass, i chose the samples, there is no way i am going to use synth strings, and i made most of the synth lead, so i think you might be hearing wrong man. i don't know how to make my own drum presets and i don't want to spend forever trying to make my own, just speaking honestly. the bell is preset, but i don't know how to make a bell sound.

Same thing -- Nice!

Wow, I would totally rap to this if I was a wrapper (rapper). It sounds pretty nice, no doubt. At first I thought that it needed something just a little extra, -- there was a too long of a ongoing strings part -- but I see that it is for rap, and rap has A LOT of that. It sounds A LOT nice. lol.

I don't want to say that it doesn't have enough effects, but more of something like the gunshot would be nice. That way, you could increase the song length or something.
