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
Join this lovable crew of droids as they solve their differences the only way dubstep robots know how.

** Download the Arena Bass instrument, demonstrated in this video, along with our new free mega pack available on the XSSR Academy website – http://xssracademy.com/en/articles/free-mega-pack.html **
** We are giving away a whole bundle of packages with free Ableton Live projects, including Mars’ Top 10 dubstep hit India Sleeping and the house tune called Pleasure; the Arena Bass instrument, and over one hundred bass samples and Massive presets. **
Many dubstep producers like to use Massive synth. You can hear its special sound in many tracks. I used to use this synth too, but later decided to make my own tool. In this video tutorial I’ll show you the basic idea of making the instrument. Improve and refine this idea yourself for your own unique sound!
You should start with the creation of your dubstep bass. You can use the bass techniques from this video in your own tracks.
Watch the video in full to not miss any part of the creation process.
*** Please experiment and develop your own instruments, then Email – email@example.com – them to us and the best ones will be posted to our website! ***

You can easily identify a track from a rookie musician. They don’t have that punch to their drums. The kick and snare are too soft in the overall mix, and they are almost inaudible. When i started to produce, i was looking for a long time for the secret to “making fat drums”.
Today I will tell you the way to make punchy kick. We’ll look at how to layer the kick drum and then how to process it with compressor and EQ.
First of all, let’s talk about the layering. In sound layering, we take the best part from every component sound until we are completely satisfied with our overall sound.
Today we look at layering as if it’s a bunch of flowers you might give to your girlfriends.
As I mentioned earlier, we are now layering a kick drum. To do this we need several different one shot kick samples. In every kick i use here there is something i want to hear in the resultant sound. In one of them I liked the attack of the kick, in another the body of the kick drum, in a third, the bass tail. You will need to collect the parts you like to make the resulting kick.
All one shot samples I put in Drumrack – my favourite drum machine.
Let’s listen to the samples I chose.
Once the samples are selected, we only need the part of the sample that we like. So we cut everything except these parts.
- In Kick1 I liked the attack. So i leave only the attack of the kick.
- In Kick2 I removed the attack.
- In Kick3 i remove the attack and remove the bass a little bit and cleaned the tail.
- Kick4 i leave unchanged.
