With what you had at your disposal, really really solid job. Drop some more beats man, check sampleswap.org for some sick breaks, and grab yourself some bass and piano soundfonts. Keep at it.
Thank you! These reviews keep me kicking. I got plenty of stuff to work with now, soundfonts and samples and such, and I feel like I've gotten a lot better, I'll definitely be uploading new stuff soon!
This beat is okay, but it's certainly not something I would like to listen to more than a few times. This is mainly because the beat sounds a bit boring to me. I'd like it if you could do a bit more with it.
I don't know the instrument's name (is it a jungle drum or something like that?), but with the instrument that starts to play at 0:23 I would like to hear a tune that's less monotonous. It's the instrument that jumps out because it's louder and really different from the drums, and if you make it monotonous it's a bit boring.
Even though it's boring, I do hear that you've at least put some time in this trying to make it sound like a beat you could hear in a real song.
As a last small bit of advice, could you remove the first half of the first second? If you could edit that a bit it would loop, which is almost a must for a beat you would find in a game or song.
The main reason why the score isn't that high is because it's just a beat. It's not a bad one, and for a beat it's actually okay in terms of variation and loudness, but I review the audio here as if they are songs, and it's not really a song of its own. If you would find a way to give this beat a bit more power and surprise people with it, it'll certainly sound a lot better.

Thank you! So basically, it needs more oomph? Something to make it stand out.. I see, I see, I'll work on that for the future definitely! I seriously appreciate the review! Thanks!
For your very first attempt, it's good. I don't make beats so I'm in no capacity to criticize, plus the only beat I've ever made was pretty lame. I really want to hear what you can do with the proper tools, so when you make your next instrumental be sure to drop a link off for us!
I kind of want to rap over my shitty beat now for shits and giggles...
Definitely dude, thanks for the review! If you do, don't forget to pass me the link!
Like Fat Beats said in the hip-hop thread, I'd recommend you stay away from FL samples. There are tons of sites where you can get free drum hits, try googling around for a bit and collect some better sounds.
As it is, it does need some more work. It feels very simple, and, as I mentioned earlier, FL samples don't really sound that great. But you said this was your first beat, correct? You just gotta keep practicing, and you'll get better with time.
Thanks! I really appreciate the review! Yea, this is my first beat, and I now have tons of good kits and soundfonts to use. Thank you again.
