Very nice song, good tight playing, I really like it!

Still using 9.10 is nothing to be ashame of, that probably means that you know 
your system and can put much more energy on the one thing that really matters: 
-the music. To always use the latest of everything steals to much time and 
changes the focus in the wrong direction IMHO - I do that by myself.

So if it works: don't fix it! :-)

Just a little more bass, more kick? ..and a little more body sound and snap 
from the snare would be nice. The snare do have a very nice body sound but it 
disappears when the rest of the instruments starts to play. A little (more?) 
compression on your drums might do the most of the job for you. But in that 
case you might turn the toms volume a little down.
