Hey guys i was a little bit lost on the site i was trying really hard to track down my demos for an EP album, but it's so hard i just ended up mad at myself cuz i wanted perfection on the demos and i can't find the point where i say okay i really like this, it's always the same for me, the drums sound like crap, or they don't sound real (im using VSTs cuz i don't have drums or can't afford recording real ones) or the mixing is just shit or things like that. its kinda frustrating, i ended up downloading tons of vsts for drums and yet i didn't find one that i like, it kinda sucks. does this happens to you when you're doing your demos or songs or whatever you're doing?

Are you recording this on your own? If so then I highly recommend getting a band, or even just another friend to bounce ideas off of, if you don't come up with something then its likely that your band/friends will. And for a self produced demo you aren't going to get perfect drums, heck, most major studio recordings of drums suck. I hate sample drums or drum machines, remember, not everything needs to be perfect, do you think Zeppelin III was recorded to a click? Nope. Actual drums are always better. I would get together with friends, write out some songs, play live, and try and save up to get an actual recording space. Just my opinion though. I don't know of many who went down the self production route and got signed, the only example that comes to me is NIN, but I'm sure others will correct me.
