00:15:662 - Did you happen to miss a note here for the snare? If so, add a note on column 3 for it. Done, this was an occasion of just being scatter-brained while trying to make a super easy difficulty for this.
00:20:714 - Add a note on 4 for that high-pitched snare. Added it on 3 instead, 4 was taken for other sounds.
00:23:714 (23714|0) - Should be snapped down to 00:23:675 - for that sound there. Error carried forward from the Advanced difficulty.
00:48:820 - to 01:09:030 - The extended use of 1/2 streams is pretty questionable because it seemingly has no short breaks in between.
An idea to make this area more lenient would be removing hi-hat notes like 00:48:977 (48977|0) - , 00:50:241 (50241|3) - 00:51:504 (51504|0) - , 00:54:030 (54030|3) - , 00:55:293 (55293|0) - , 00:56:556 (56556|3) - , etc. This sounds more like removing notes after the start of every measure that is not mapped to a snare, but this is the general idea, more or less.
That way, you could have more room to put more emphasis on the percussion while having a short break to recover just slightly. Works mostly fine, except I have to remove more hi-hats than what you probably envisioned. Did it anyway, since it seemed to help to some degree, far more than what I currently had anyway. Still needs work regardless.
01:08:398 (68398|0,68556|1,68714|2,68872|1) - Should be snapped as 3/4 so it follows the snares more accurately. Done.
01:09:030 (69030|3,69030|2) - This is a completely arbitrary suggestion but you could turn this into a single so there are no jumps in this difficulty. '_<'
01:18:977 - Could use a note for the snare. Overlooked that, thanks.
00:20:872 (20872|3,20872|0) - Didn't seem like you were using jumps for the previous snares (e.g. 00:15:188 (15188|0) - ), so I think this should be a single. Refer to my comments on the Hard difficulty.
00:22:293 (22293|1,22293|0) - Same as above with 00:19:767 (19767|1) - . Refer to my comments on the Hard difficulty.
00:23:714 (23714|0) - Should be snapped down to 00:23:675 - for that sound there. Fixed, came from oversimplification without thinking about consistency.
00:26:004 - Add a note here for that percussion. Felt like a different set of percussion from the 1/4s I've layered, but I changed this anyway.
02:34:925 (154925|3) - Add a note on column 1 to turn this into a jump for that kick + snare. Fixed.
00:21:504 (21504|1,21504|0,22293|0,22293|1) - It doesn't seem like you're using jumps for this section (apart from 00:17:241 - ), so I'm thinking you should turn these to singles, and to also ease that section up a bit. I'm using doubles for very loud cymbal crashes here, like the section you've pointed out. 21.504 is an odd case because while it's not a cymbal crash, the sound is so abrasive relative to the rest of the percussion here that I felt a double here is justifiable. 22.293 however, is not justifiable. I removed the double for a single for that.
00:28:135 (28135|3,28214|1,28372|3) - Ctrl + H then move the note on 00:28:451 - to 4. That way, column 3 focuses on following the snare with 4 as the higher pitched one. Had the same idea for that after you pointed it out, amended. I think I did this because I wasn't quite sure on my layering scheme at the time.
00:37:451 - You could add a note here considering you had a jump following that crash on 00:37:451 - . I started reading the mod backwards (i.e. Observer first), and this was noted.
01:33:898 (93898|2) - Didn't seem that you have this note to lead in to a similar section (00:33:267 - ). You could remove that note or add a note on the earlier section for consistency, though. Added a note for 33.267.
01:44:004 (104004|2) - Same as above, but at this point I think this might be intentional. Or not, considering you don't have a note later on in 01:54:109 - . This was sloppy copypaste, my bad.
03:01:293 (181293|2,181293|3) - Feels a bit too strong as a jump. Turn this into a single? This was an error carried forward from the Observer and Insane difficulties (that Abraxos pointed out) that I forgot to amend for. Fixed, and amended for 02:41:083 - as well.
00:18:977 (18977|1) - Should be a jump since it's a kick plus a snare. Cymbal crash isn't sharp enough. Another occasion where I didn't make it a double for the same reason is 16.461.
00:21:030 (21030|2,21188|0) - Could move both of these notes to column 2 as a two-note stack to accentuate that high-pitched drum. A bit too feint to be a minijack I feel.
01:11:556 - Feels pretty strong enough to warrant a jump here. (Add a note on 4) Fits better as a double, done. Did  though.
02:38:872 (158872|0,158872|1) - Shouldn't this be a single? You didn't have jumps for the snares in this section. (e.g. 02:39:109 (159109|2,159346|3,159583|2) - )
02:59:083 (179083|0,179083|1) - Same case as above. Abraxos pointed this out as well; I'm guessing my layering there isn't the most intuitive. Amended.
00:37:135 (37135|2,37135|0,37451|0,37451|2) - Thinking both of these should be hands considering the way you've done it with the earlier snares. Fixed this. I think I did this because I thought the cymbal crashes were softer than the other cymbal crashes in similar sections, but it turned out not to be the case. It's just that it's more obvious because it's not complemented with a snare to cymbal right after. This error was consistent throughout all charts, so I'll be amending this across all difficulties.
01:58:530 (118530|1,118688|1,118846|1) - This pattern feels a bit rough because of that three-note stack on column 2 there. Ctrl + J on 01:58:846 (118846|1,118925|0) - would alleviate that. Was thinking of the same, fixed.
Mapset is very clean, solid and easy to follow overall. I don't mind helping you rank this set even further. Thank you, I'll keep in touch.
