    @Draft34: Those clicks got there when I exported the song as a WAV, I know how to fix it. No worries :)

    I love the drop, but I think you can take it farther. I think it would be really cool to make the piano recede into the distance for a moment before the drums come in for real. That temporary sparseness would make the sudden change in energy even more dramatic and fulfilling!

    @Draft34: are the drums trying to come in here? oh yes they are. I know it's supposed to be subtle, but high passing things would really clean this up.

    the thing that i'm missing with this section is a sense of depth. you can fix that with a reverb and/or delay send. Make two slightly different reverb units, and pan them hard left and right, if you can, make something that swaps the panning of the incoming audio. This creates a 'room' for the music to exist in and gives a greater illusion of depth.

    are the clicks deliberate? they're not quite rhythmic and not quite textural...

    Also it's really overwhelmed by the keyboard patch for my taste.

    this field recording/loop of what sounds like footsteps would make an awesome percussive element later on if you locked the steps in with the drums. (But when the Drums come in for real it might be too busy to add anything on top...)

    I love this patch! it's really rich and full. it sits in the bass frequencies a little too much though. If you're not already in the habit of doing this, you should start high-pass filtering sound on EVERYTHING that you don't want in the bass range. Even if it doesn't sound like there's much there.
