Re: Best BPM for Dubstep ?

I feel like my sweet spot used to be 120-140. Faster than that almost begs for 4/4 kicks (electro territory or something)

140

Write at that and then your tunes will be in time with practically every other tune out there. But yeah, 148-150 if you're going for a super up feel. Or you could try some 132 murky shit

140 makes it easier for mixing.

Re: Best BPM for Dubstep ?

It's really hard to get much better than 70/140 BPM now that it's the default BPM when FL Studio 11 starts up But seriously, 70/140 BPM is pretty ideal if one actually exists. But I'm always surprised when I time a tune and it turns out to be 60/120 or 75/150 or whatnot. I think ultimately it depends upon the tune. But true DubStep and not BroStep usually needs to be slow enough and not rushed. Some of the hybrid subgenres can take more liberties. A lot of true Reggae and some Dub Reggae is at 69 BPM which is almost a perfect 70/140 so it works perfect for the DubStep samples and influences.

Re: Best BPM for Dubstep ?

140/70

I keep dubstep marked as 70 bpm so that it doesnt get all mixed up with trance and stuff in my DJ library. That being said, I've also got some fave tracks that are at 68, 72, etc

Why even bother considering creating tracks with a fixed BPM in mind it feels uncreative to me

Because, as with Drum N Bass and the like it is a scene that thrives on DJ culture. You want people to hear your tunes, they're not gonna get played out if no cunt can mix them.

Re: Best BPM for Dubstep ?

Try 160 bpm you fucking slowpokes, or 173, even better
I propose a 200 bpm dubstep challenge...Does it still count as dubstep at that point?

280 is better cause you can stil mix it with 140

Re: Best BPM for Dubstep ?

It would just turn into really horrible sounding drum and bass at that point, just add breakbeat.

Wouldn't that just be a 140bpm break beat track then?

I concur. Though it would be more of a concern if you were planning on mixing dubstep. As annoying as it is to pigeonhole styles the majority of dubstep is at 140 =/- 5bpm. Some of the earlier stuff stems from garage and could be around the 135 mark. Alternatively Youngsta was playing everything at 142 for a while, when that dungeon sound was more popular.
