Hey, here's a dubstep piece I threw together using the free samples found on the remix EP for the remix competition. The piece is on my profile. Or can be found on my soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/caboz-finlay-cable

Overall I see this as a massive step up from my last piece given I managed to finally get the hang of Native Instruments. Regardless any comments and critique on levels would be handy. C4C as always.

EDIT: Now a d/l if anybody really wants it

I think the song was just a tad bit repetitive

But it was enjoyable enough that I didn't get bored with it

I don't listen to a lot of dubstep at all though, so maybe that is normal? I am thinking more from a metal track perspective

that being said, I thought it was executed very professionally

With some finishing touches, it has the makings for a massively awesome track

very cool idea for a song, and a more or less solid track that is just missing that little something extra

the production was excellent though. keep it up
This is a sick remix! Bass drop at :48 was mega grimy. Really awesome usage of the PTH guitar lead. That bassline just sounds so dirty over those leads. I thought you did a really great job of sampling the vocals as well, they came in at just the right times. You did a fantastic job of warping those vocal parts. Do you use Ableton? Overall, that was a banger dude. And you are so young. Lots of potential here if you keep working at Electro stuffs.

is there anywhere i can cop an mp3 of this? Dope.

when you get a chance hit me back at

Bear in mind, I've never heard the source track.

I'm guessing you're using Massive by Native Instruments? It's just I saw a video on writing Skrillex basslines the other day and they were using Massive to do similar things. Anyways, excellent work with that.
/Native Instruments fangirl

Anyway, that being said, there was very little variation on the bassline throughout the entire song. I would've liked to have heard more personally. Also, the drums could have been varied a bit more. Both these made for a rather repetitive song general.

Other than that, the production quality was really great

If you get around to it, here's my song:

I thought it was good, but I think you should have added in some more variation (maybe some more riffs from the song instead of just the two you had). You could probably make it shorter if you don't plan on adding anything.

Mind listening to my latest song (also dubstep)? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1447019
