    Improve by Song Structure, Drum Selection, EQing. Listen to References and compare where you are lacking. Do this for a year at least!

    it's a good attempt, but the structure is really too simple
    I can not consider it a beat but a loop
    ... the road is long but it's the right one :mates:

    It sounds very dry and the structure is unorganized/uninteresting. The pizzicato loop gets anoying over time (it sounds like random notes). Also there is no depth in the sound. Try Louder drums and/or change them, remake the pizzicato into something more "loopeable", copy the structure of a similar song you like and experiment with it, try using more reverb and/or delays to add some movement and depth in the background, add more instruments.

    I get the feeling that the song is supossed to be singed over so think about that when mixing it.

    for originality and the idea. this is not a song just an idea. yeah the pizzicato is a bit annoying territory , careful there, don't overuse it.
    could be an intro with a thin sound, which later explodes into big sounding main theme. trim it down and take the main melody out for the verse , beef it up for the chorus, reverse the melody.
    keep working on it. like.

    Yeah the "this is not real trap" argument. Hey whatever man, hope you achieve your goals !

    eddydagawd, what do you think of the idea of members here downloading your track and adding something to it? One person adds a bassline, another adds something else - a colab? Might be fun. What's the BPM of your track?

    I rate it a 4. As some have said above...It is just an idea. Something that sounds unfinished and that begs to be completed.
    Which ever way that is, how you would do it. But, it is not enough. Good start, so complete it and polish it off.

    Now, to answer your earlier request about a Trap beat thats at least a "7"...Here you are.

    There is none. You just spit some fire and finesse the bass and pauses
