Dubstep Maker is an iPad app for creating dubstep music. It features 38 assignable PADS, a 8 note keyboard and a synth wobble modulator. The wobble modulator is placed where you would normally find a mod or pitch wheel. Next to that you have a selection of 6 synth sounds to modulate and create wobble sounds.

There are over 100 drum loops, synth loops, vocal samples and fx sounds. From a design point of view it’s is simply laid out. Buttons are as big as a finger tip and spread out nicely.

The edit screens are where you assign different sounds to different pads.This is simply done by selecting a button to edit and pick your sound by touching the + button.

The only other functions available to change is the master volume, the tempo and the rate of the synth wobble using the sliders.

While there are lots of dubstep apps available none of them really stand out. WHOMP is perhaps the best and oldest of them but still not a stand out app one might expect. Dubstep Maker is an intriging app that it is well laid out (perhaps too simply? I’m not sure.) Its sounds are your standard dubstep sounds that doesn’t set itself too far apart from the rest although there is a lot of variation.

The synth wobble section is probably where it will find its fans. Fair enough playing a wobble sample but to actually adjust
the wobble to suit is great. Maybe more sounds to play around with would not go amiss, or a dedicated page just to create wobbles would be nice.

Skrillex – Bangarang – Old School Computer Remix

March 19, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background video description:

Skrillex was the most requested artist so your wish is my command. Bangarang was a challenging song with respect to timing and now I have a new respect for Dubstep. For all the haters out there the audio in this video is 100% in sync with the original song. If you don’t believe me then test it out for yourself.

Vocals were performed with the DECTalk Express. The same speech synthesizer used by Stephen Hawking back in the eighties. The main vocals are the Betty and Rita presets overlapped. Kit and Dan vocal presets were also used.

Back in 2009 I used an 8 inch floppy drive in my Bohemian Rhapsody video but this time I wanted to update it with Sammy1am’s Arduino version. I find 3.5 inch floppy drives only sound good when playing short duraton notes with a fast tempo.

DECTalk – vocals
HP Scanjet 3C – lead
Yamaha CX-5 computer – guitar
Floppy and CDROM – lead bass solo
Modified Toy Laser Guns
Robot Bass, Snare and Cymbal

This short demonstration shows my little invention: CV-source dedicated for Dub-Step drops. Unlike regular fader, this one has its maximal value on the middle position. Schematics available. It’s very simple and it’s free for non-commercial use.

As DS-10 Dominator I always experiment with the crossover of different EDM genres. In Formulas you can find influences from acid, drum ‘n’ bass, gabber, footwork, dubstep.

Yazoo and Front 242 gets a DubStep treatment

October 10, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This is not any official remixes but it sure sounds nice. Out now on the download streets is a dubstep remix of the 80s classic “Don’t Go” in a remix by Dominatrix aka Andy Motke.

We asked Vince Clarke what he thought of it, here was his answer: “Uber cool!”

It’s not the first time that Motke has been remixing electropop acts. He also had a take on Bigod 20 vs Front 242.
