Who Knows Demo

Hi guys. Decided to try and record my first proper song.

I mic'd up my dsl100 and recorded the guitar, done vocals, used FL Studio for the bassline and Audacity to mix it in. Yet to do drums. I have a very old laptop I've done it on and don't really have great equipment. I've really struggled with getting the mix on the vocals correct tho I may have another go at it (I have been at this mix for about 5 hours now so I kinda give up for the day!) Does anyone know where I can get decent sounding drums from? I tried FL Studio but they sounded way too fake/electric for my


I have the structure of the song there. This is just what I've done so far.

Any tips appreciated.

Vocals are slightly pitchy, but otherwise good. This song reminds me of Nirvana (a compliment). Sounds good overall, even without drums. Lots of people like toontrack EZDrummer (hard to beat for the price). toontrack Superior Drummer sounds better but costs more (perhaps the most popular drum software there is). BFD is good, but not cheap. Perhaps you could review my music at this link:
