New user - First song on Reason 6.5
Hello Propellerheads!
I finally upgraded from Reason 5 to Reason 6.5 recently, and decided to ask for your input on some of my work. This is the first track I made in Reason 6.5, which I've had for 2 days now. Please let me know what you think, I'm very interested in all feedback!

This is Shitty Club Banga material, and I like it. I produced that dude's Comedy/Club/RAP album.

Thanks! Do you think I should lower the bass levels a bit?

Any other input would be greatly appreciated everyone! I finally received my ignition key today, it's been quite the wait. Finally no more internet required. Woo!

I don't have any advice but I just wanted to say I like what you have made.

Well first of all huge upgrade, I'm sure you're going to find out very soon that it was worth the money.

I definitely hear some vocorder, and you made nice use of the filters. I only have Reason 5 with Record 1.5, so if you used some Reason 6 effects/devices I wouldn't know about them.

I like it. As for bass levels I couldn't really say. It's to late to really crank it up right now :P.

Now this is outside my normal styles that I listen to so this may be totally wrong but anyways. I think the kick needs a TINY bit more clarity to it. Maybe if you layered a kick with more high end or maybe a kick that has a hihat hit on top of it. Set it to a very low level in comparison just to give it a tiny bit of high end so the kick is a little more present. Maybe I'm way off on that, just my 2 cents :).

I only have two tips, the later of which I don't think needs saying.

1) I think the sweeping sound (that first plays at 0:19) is either too loud or (by default) too shrill. I'd play around with it some.

2) It needs a melody of some sort.

Despite these two things, I really liked it. :)

Do you plan to add vocals (or something)?

edit: Oh yeah. If by bass levels you mean the volume of the bass, I think it's fine. If it was a different genre (like classical, soft rock, etc.) I'd think it's too loud, but this hip-hopish sort of music is supposed to have kind of loud bass.

Thanks for the advice everyone, I haven't had much time in the past few days, but I will definitely be utilizing your ideas!
