Is Dubstep Avant Garde Musical Genius?

August 3, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

New video fully focused on dubstep, here are the details:

Dubstep. Is. Awesome. While some people may hear noise, we hear amazing musical genius. The aural creativity of Dubstep, and its embrace of inharmonic sounds, makes it the most recent member of the long-established Avant Garde community. There is a long history of avant garde musicians and thinkers promoting the concept of noise and non-instrumental sounds as MUSIC, much to the horror of their audience. But over the past century, changes in technology and music genres have primed listeners, allowing mainstream audiences to enjoy the beautiful noise of Skrillex, Bassnectar & the whole Dubstep movement.

Making a dubstep track with just a dialup modem sound

July 25, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · 2 Comments 

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

How to make your own Dubstep instrument in Ableton Live

June 29, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background information:

** 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 – academy@xssrmusic.com – them to us and the best ones will be posted to our website! ***
