    Rate my drum sound.

    I'm completely new to programming drums. Like, this is my first attempt at drums in the best part of about 5 years, and even last time, it was basic FL beats. This time, I'm running DFH through FL Studio 9. Just trying to get the hang of things.

    How would you guys think I'm doing?

    (Also, I know it's quiet, but I've no idea how to make it louder)

    The actual programming sounds solid, the mix will come down to learning how to use compression/EQ to get the results you're looking for.

    I recognize those samples anywhere

    Do you have the velocity turned all the way up on the harder hitting parts? The china section sounded a little soft-handed.

    As for a rating, I'm partial to your sound, as it's mine too haha. So nice work!
    Now put some guitars down on that biznaz

    P.s. - I don't use FL with DFH (I use Cubase), BUT if I remember correctly, you can raise the export volume from the DAW, oooor you can open your mixed and bounced drum track in a master suite and compress them up a little as I don't think you have the plug-ins in FL Studio to do anything in the editor.

    Just stick a limiter or compressor on the master bus and raise the volume shouldn't be too hard. Programming is excellent! Snare lacks some depth sounds a tad too over compressed but definitely has some snap! I don't think you get much control over the mics in DFH but i'd say you were doing a good job

    There's also a master volume in the plugin itself that people tend to forget.

    Don't worry about people talking behind your back, it just means you're one step ahead and they're in perfect position to kiss your ass!
