    Not really been into dubstep these days because of the recent rinsage by the mainstreamers BUT I particularly like Nero's new one - Innocence. Cant wait until the vinyl drops.

    Need to get producing properly again :sly:

    P.S Any suggestions are welcome, need to figure out how to bring that sub through a bit more
    Damn that snare hits hard!

    You work in the same way as me with a basic drop first, i need to stop doing that as it really hinders me for the rest of the track. Got this one pretty much done now though, little unmixed preview of what it was when i first started;

    The drop tends to be what gives the track it's character which is pretty important in dance music... I think. What bit crusher are you using on that bass? Real sweet.

    No Bitcrusher, it's actually a vowel filter! Sugarbytes WOW.

    And yeah, i'm really trying to start with the intro and work my way through from start to finish now though. When i start with the drop i tend to just sit there with an 8 bar loop taking things out and putting things in, never get it done.

    What do you guys think of Nero? Listened to a few tracks of his, remixes and produictions and o really enjoyed them, though i am not much of a dubstep head and don't have a large knowledge of the genre.

    Nero is really good. His remixes of Blinded by the Lights and I'm Not You're Toy are worth checking out (the Streets/La Roux)

    But his best track is drum and bass. (Requiem)

    Omg i can't believe i didn't put the name of every artist who is possibly involved.

    If you're gonna use as bait tunes as where's my money don't expect me to be as bait when naming them.

    Less wobble, more BASS!

    Seriously though, it would sound so much heavier if you sorted the sub out. What key is the track in?

    Yeah, I find it quite tough when you have a big noisey wobble to bring the sub out properly in the track. I dunno, maybe I need to find a way of compressing that top wobble better...
    I can't think what key it's in at the minute and I don't have the project on here at the minute. Why do you ask?

    Well one of the most important tips I've discovered in my 6 years of trying to make bass music is that how heavy your sub is often really depends on the root note of your track. I think most people have a tendency to try and write in C which makes the sub too low so that it sounds weak on headphones and basically on anything but a proper sound system with decent sub speakers. Bump the key of the track up to say, F, and suddenly the sub hits through more beacuse its hitting more audible frequencies and yet is still definitely SUB bass.

    Other tip for getting your sub to sit right: make sure you're equing everything in that area. Use a spectral analyzer to see exactly where your sub is hitting and then hi pass everything else to that frequency. Usually I find i low pass my sub at about 80 hz, high pass the kick at 80 hz, snare at 150hz and then if i'm using a wobble that will get cut at about 180-200hz.

    Sorry if you already know all this but if not, hope it helps!

    I saw somewhere that G is a great key for DnB, Dubstep. Only a tone apart from F tho, but yeh i use C too often anyway. Btw thanks for the tips, if ever i try dubstep will refer to that
