have you tried FM8?


Yep, but I prefer Sytrus for FM sounds. Ridiculously Underrated.

I love that first one!

It's just like relentless monophonic grating bass in my ears. I mean that as a compliment, it's a good sound. Is that synth your own creation?


Sure is, it's just a few layered up basses made with Massive.
Quote by rabidguitarist
It's definitely closer to the mark than my dubstep attempt. Did you have a listen?

If it's of any use to you, this sample pack is coming in really handy for my new attempt at dubstep. (I have no attention span)

http://twistedtools.com/shop/samplepacks/free/haptic/#Haptic

They have some other great free stuff on there too, really professional sounds.


I tried my hand at some overly cheesy dubstep for shits and gigs.

That song sounds a lot like Hudson Mohawke, decent though.

This is actually pretty dope, I like that sound in the intro. I'm super into trap these days.

edit: Stay tuned guys for some big 808 stuff from me. I've got a big project in the works.

Yeah I'm down for that. Got two weeks off now to produce and drink, so any time soon is good for me

Spent tonight attempting to conquer my fear of resampled midrange basses. http://soundcloud.com/robots-cant-dance/midrangebassresampleresampleet/s-atCL3

Done entirely on headphones so it could sound terrible for all I know, and I put it over a generic dubstep beat for now


That's pretty sick, reminds of Torqux and Twist. We should collab sometime.

I'm going to try and crank out a tune per day this week.


Today's effort: http://soundcloud.com/stunstep/stunz-da-floor/s-7gjrZ

Be nice, it's a really really really rough draft

Do you mind if I play this track on turntable.fm?


Go for it mate. I'm going to try and crank out a tune per day this week.

So I've been trying my hand at making some ambient dubstep, let me know what you think:

http://soundcloud.com/disco-nekt/early-november-wip-1-1


Super ambient bro, I like it. Especially the ketamine samples haha. Also that rising synth in the drop. The intro seems a little repetitive; I reckon you could put a couple other bits in there for variation. Potential.

Quote by ChadLikesGuitar

I just came out with some very deep dubstep, I think everyone should have a listen so they can die peacefully.

http://soundcloud.com/chad-kirk/verydeepdubstep


I think your drums sound bad - not very crisp, especially the snare which could use a little more high end. Finding some quality drum samples is very much worth the time.
Quote by duggyrocks
Pretty cool. Maybe the wobble should have more movement when its just doing the repeated notes, but I do like the minimal style you've got going. Clap is sounding great btw


Im in the same situation as you, a short clip with not much idea how to expand. http://soundcloud.com/robots-cant-dance/bassline-intro-1/s-w8E0h SC is making the low end weird atm. This started off as an MGMT sounding tune, I don't know how I managed to end up with this


Haha I know what you mean. I came up with this and I've no idea where to go with it. http://soundcloud.com/sligh/jester/s-FZCig
Quote by WishfulShredder
potential, but the kick needs to be WAY more powerful. I also reckon you could add a synth pad or lead in to add interest n stuff. I really like the bass though, sounds Noisia-ish.


The kick is MASSIVE. There's a different kick in the intro if that's what you're meaning?
Should I finish this one guys / has it got potential?

Another hip-hop thing/work in progress

I like this but I feel like the drums could have been mixed a little better. Also could do with some sub added.

Quote by mental_zer0

New dubstep shtuff. I think the mix is coming along nicely, still need to fix some sounds and fill everything out. Clean up those wobbles a bit too.


The main bass sounds a bit thin IMO. Maybe try layering it with a couple other sounds to fill it out. A separate sub-bass layer would be good too. Also, I feel like the kick sound doesn't work in the context of this track and doesn't carry the beat very well. Overall though, I like the melody and concept of the track.

edit2: also here's a bonus for all the drumstep fans
Quote by blues_to_thrash
I'm finally close to finishing my DnB epic that I've been working on for months, plus a cheeky moombahton remix for the b side.


#thankyoubasedgod
@piratemetalhead sounds alright, but could do with a bit more shuffle in the drums.

So guys, I need a new headset for CHEAP. I'm thinking about getting some Sennheiser HD202's for £26. Anyone got any better suggestions for <£30?


Sennheisers usually have good quality for what you pay for them. I'm rocking a pair of HD 25-1 IIs. Love them.

thnks for posting, should be awesome

edti: sides magnetic man, but most of that stuff is uncharacteristically poppy and feminine anyways

Benga is what got me into dubstep. He's easily still one of my favourite producers.

I have almost no interest in mashing. Seems so... I don't know.


i've got a couple cool mashups which find their way into my mixes. I should properly make them in FL. I'll try dig up a mix i've done.

EDIT: Here

Does anyone know how to make Edison (FL) not record the

Glad everyone's songs are going to sound different from now on



Glad I could help.
Quote by blues_to_thrash
Tight, mind if this finds its way into my new tune for a couple of bars?


Go nuts :P
Quote by SteveHouse
Totally would want. EDIT: nevermind.

There some way that you can make Massive patches work in the Kore Player? It uses some "Best of Massive" synths...


Here it is in audio. Get some resampling up in here.

Didn't work for me, but around 1 out of 50 work for me so its expected



Try it again, I accidentally resaved it in Massive 1.15. Fixed now.

Who wants an awesome chainsaw bass patch I made?

EDIT: For Massive
Quote by piratemetalhead
they're synced up in fl studio at least... if you mean the hats, then yeah i was just kinda ****ing around with a "shuffle" sort of dubstep beat.


Not that, it's just there's not a strong kick/snare groove to follow.
I'm going to make some drum & bass. Will report back.
Quote by piratemetalhead
finally decided to finish my dubstep tune!

http://soundcloud.com/louiepan/here-we-go

definitely looking forward to make some more dubstep tunes in the future. Any feedback would be great!


The drums sound a little... off?
