Making a dubstep track with just a dialup modem sound

July 25, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Background details:

I decided to give myself a little challenge
for a long time i have heard that dubstep sounds like a dialup modem, so i decided to test if the modem could sound like dubstep

every sound is from the opening handshake, ill post the making of video in a few hours, there is no synth and no samples used, even the drums are all based on parts of the modem sound, the bass is pretty clearly shown in the intro from modem buzz to brostep wobble

about 4 total hours, with my hd280 pro, all live built in stuff, no 3rd party

    here’s part 2: the door stopper http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lMOU9o49so
    the modem was too easy, all kind of noises and tones just perfect for creating drums, basses and everything, so this time i attacked the second most common dubstep myth, the door stopper, so i found myself 2 nice door stopper samples and built a whole song with them, some parts are not recorded, as is all the arrangement as my laptop is wayyyyy too old to record audio and video while producing
