What dubstep sounds like to your parents

Warning: Annoying So Turn The Volume Down.
I didn’t make this; it was posted on tumblr. I wish I knew who created it because it’s hilarious.
An experiment using an iPad and the Konkreet Performer app to control dubstep wobble / LFO sounds and drum effects in Traktor 2. Konkreet uses multi-touch technology to the full. Instead of traditional faders and knobs, use multi-touch and gestures to manipulate PERFORMER’s beautiful shapes to dynamically control your computer’s software instruments in real-time.
In the studio, it allows the artist to approach their sound-design routine from a new, inspiring angle: to reconnect to their software instruments and Digital Audio Workstations by using Performer’s revolutionary interface and arriving at sounds and progressions impossible with traditional controllers.

This weeks freebie from AfroDJMac:
Dubstep wobble bass created with a sample of a lawnmower engine. From there a sub bass synth using Analog is layered underneath to produce some window rattling low frequencies. As always, this rack can be manipulated to taste to serve as anything from a dance floor dubstep mind killa to an airy atmospheric pad hovering overhead.
Every week I post a new Ableton Live Rack, please check http://www.afrodjmac.com for synths from the last few weeks and for another next week.
Download here: http://bit.ly/freesynth7
This week, I am harnessing the power of the lawnmower’s song and coupling it with a deep sub bass sound to create the “Dubstep Lawnmower Man” synth. After sampling my lawnmower, I have applied filters and effects associate with the Dubstep genre to create those massive filter wobbles that have become so popular. Next, a deep sub bass synth was create using Ableton’s Analog synth to really get those speakers shaking. Each sound can be mixed together or played separately, which means even if you are not into the sound of my aging Craftsman mower, you still have a chest thumping bass sound to play around with.

This CQ is about keeping that punchy, powerful sound but avoiding clipping in tracks!
