What samples are you using for the percussion??? This really sounds great! As you have already said, variations in the hi-hats are needed, but save for that, this track sounded very smooth XD I like the drop at 1:40, where it goes to just the beat and violins. You brought it back pretty smooth too. Very nice work! I am going to keep my eye on you!
Bass drums also Hi hats are from JayDee Kit, Clap+snare is from KlubKlapz with some reverb
then I just got some random Snare Drum not sure where it's from but you can get some nice snare/drums from the Lex Luger Drum Kit
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
