Most of us have probably heard a dubstep. the sound is very unique. i was coming home from school one day when i passed a house with a window open, i already knew a band rehearsed there but the guitarist sounded like the dubstep sound. does anyone know how to make this sound? i could see the guitarist in the window playing it so i know it was wasnt a speaker or something.

ANYONE THAT CAN FIND OUT HOW TO MAKE THIS SOUND PLEASE POST HERE!

thanks...

need a low pass filter pedal, I imagine its quite an easy wah pedal mod.

Use your guitar as a midi controller

And what exactly is this dubstep sound you speak of?

A low pass filter, reverb, light modulation; chorus, flange, phase, etc.

Athough I have no idea if how you could pull this off with a live guitar, a Low Frequency Oscillator; something to make the 'wub wub' sounds found in dubstep and automation patterns; hard to explain but it pretty much just something that automates changes in pitch, volume, cutoff, resonance, etc.

Dubstep is created with Digital Audio Workstations such as FL Studio, Reason, and Ableton and the sounds come from heavily processed sample clips of really anything.

To process a live guitar with typical dubstep effects is something I have been putting some serious thought too and I would be interested in any feedback on the subject.

If you want that glitchy sound you'd probably need more than one signal path, since it's achieved by using a lot of small samples of different instruments.

Just record a sample and use a LFO on a sampler or get a low pass filter pedal.

Simple as that


I think he's talking about processing it live.

Probably an octaver and a wah pedal, or a voicebox/yaya pedal type thing. Could be anything really.

Other possibilties are a tremolo effects pedal or an envelope filter pedal.

I think bass is more suited to making that sound than guitar. You need a compressor, wah and lots of gain and presence.

TS should also listen to the advice you gave, but in reality playing trying to play dubstep on a guitar is a very silly idea.

Ive been wanting to try this on bass. Octaver to envelope filter to fuzz/distortion. With some harsh tremolo every now and then.

I have a friend who's thinking of getting a whammy bar on his bass to do dubstep type lines.

Is OP talking about synthy lead sounds or the wobbly bass sounds?

Tell your friend not too, since that's not going to work.


I'm guessing he's talking about these deafening sounds:

But I could be wrong, he might be talking about Digital Mystikz

Maybe there's a way that you can run your signal through a DAW and then tweak it with LFO to make the wobbles.

Why not? Seems like it would make sense for drops and pitch wobbles.

Because dubstep relies heavily on LFO manipulation to get those wobble sounds as already stated in the thread. But hey if he wants to try it I'm not stopping him.

Well he'd do that too. I thought it was implied that he wasn't retarded.

Why would you actually want to play dubstep on the guitar? I know that shit is all the rage, but it's doesn't take a lot to play it. If you wanna stand out, don't play dubstep.
#38
First thing you want to do is purchase a bass.

Then when you can make it do in a live setting, let me know.
#39
As being to a dubstep concert I can tell you with certainty that dubstep is driven by the bass and low beats.
I shit when my pants when that shit dropped.

If you can get that kind of frequency response out of a guitar rig.... well props to you.
