I wanna do dubstep

I've came across I cant stop by flux pavillion. I loved it.


Im sure there is much better. But this triggered me to want to try a dubstep track now. Ive almost tried every genre.. hardcore/soul/rap/jazz/funk/dance/trance/classic/orchestral... etc..
Doesnt mean im good at all the genre's but i just love music man!

Now, for dubstep, i allready know i have to be good with LFO.
Thats my 1st question,
is there some crazy plugin that makes LFO usage for dubstep easy?
Second, instruments do you use and what effect should be on them?
What is the most used BPM speed?
Any crazy plugin with good dubstep oriented instruments i can buy?

Please shower me oh fountain of all dubstep knowledge (with information offcourse)!!
Appreciate every bit of info you can give me!!

140 bpm.

The synth that's actually big for making those dubstep screeching and wobbling basses is Massive, from Native Instruments.

Re: I wanna do dubstep

Make it in half time!!!

Kick and snare every """2""" beats. <<That's just the main structure. Ofcourse you can make your own variations (off beat kicks, triplets, etc).

It's really just 70bpm. I have no idea why it's done in half time at 140.

Signatures are overated

Good to start off with.. i got home and tried something on 140 bpm, i have to do the bass still.... the most important part i guess .. am i going in the right direction with this?

Dubstep shouldn't be about screeechings WAAAWA WEWAEWEAAARR WOB WOB, thats what we call brostep.
Dubstep is all about the Sub not mid range and high ends.. SMH

Re: I wanna do dubstep

Dubstep/Brostep is a good starting point because it's so easy to make.

Youtube is saturated with tutorials albeit most of them convinced they know how to replicate Skrillex.

Follow tutorials, play about with presets until you become familiar with how to acheive desired sounds and then build off that and develope your own signature sounds.

Brostep needs to die but it is something I am guilty of as I found it all too easy to replicate!

Thats my two cent

That wawewawe is some preset i found on massive.. im trowing that out.
I'm really concerned about developping my sub bass skill... My headphones are ok with low Hz but my ears are not . But Im trying as we speak. The song i'm working on is supposed to start off fluffy and become raw and dark later. I do not know what bro step is.. but ill find out.. thanks for your time..

Thanks Blaidd! Appreciated.. I almost got killed for starting this topic.. as a new user to this forum that felt a bit weird.. but maybe it had its reasons.

I directly went to youtube etc.. and i can make stuff wobble now using NI Massive. I'm learning to master how to mix a sub bass into a tracks. Which is very hard for me.. i cant really distinguish notes in low frequencies. I have to play them high and then modulate them down. So thats a hurdle for me.

Where does this Brostep guy live man? I have weapons.

Re: I wanna do dubstep

the point: brostep is utter shit and will be long gone out of fashion by the time you get half decent at music production - that is in the very improbable case that you dont give up. Theres like a dozen kids joining everyday an asking the same fucking questions, never to be heard of again. So, yeah, welcome to idmf nd all that.

Can be difficult to mix Bass using just headphones, If your serious about getting into writing and producing invest in some decent monitors.

subtractive eq'ing can help clarify your bass, especially if it's clashing with other sounds like drums.

Picture it as building up an audio landscape, like a city view. Everything should have it's place.

Produce whatever you're happy with. As long as you enjoy it!

You're faith in humanity is quite slim. You're power to make invalid assumptions and being extra cocky is very great though.

Have you ever been welcomed into a restaurant where the waiter said to you: "You're butt ugly, so your taste for food must be as fucking bad.. You'll never enjoy good food cause you look like shit.. but welcome and all that". I listened to your stuff. You're just a waiter man... nothing more..

Please refrain from replying.

Yes! I always try to seperate overlapping kick and bass frequencies.

I'll borrow some KRK monitors soon.. Only problem with monitors are my livingroom acoustics. But i have to try to know right? Thanks!

Also that was the worst comparison ever, but even so, you just try going into a decent restaurant 24 times a day and asking for the recipe of the big mac.

Another assumption.

Why are you replying to all these forum knownothing newbs man. Must be a hobby of yours. Makes you feel like a cook instead of a waiter doesnt it. Assumptive generalizing narcistic waiter with megalomania.

I've read the forum rules before i posted.. nowhere was stated I could not ask questions like mine. Please just ignore me, ill ignore you even more.

Re: I wanna do dubstep

Perhaps you would of got a better reception on a Dubstep forum.

This forum was intended for IDM fans after all...of which there seem to be very few here.
