Sub Bass Tutorial in NI Massive and Cubase

 

An unrehearsed inside look at how YouTube user TheDjDistance goes about creating and adding sub bass elements to his projects. Yes, this is The Distance! I like this video tutorial for those who have no proper musical training in their background because he tries his best to go about explaining how and why he does what he does without using any technical jargon. Although very basic in his approach, the content he delivers is good and is relevant and useful for anyone producing quality dubstep tracks. Although Cubase is the DAW shown and Rough Rider is the compressor used, you can accomplish all of this using whatever programs and plugins you prefer or happen to have on hand.

This is another very good video from YouTube user ODSTHelljumper showing how to go about making some seriously solid drums for your dubstep projects. He does mention Skrillex many times in this, but be aware that this is a technique that is applicable to all styles of music and are good things to keep in mind when working with drums while producing in general. This is also a nice look at the new version of Reason, which has been able to stand the test of time in the most competitive period of digital music development and innovation.

Sound Design w/ Maschine Tutorial Using FM8, Massive & Reaktor

 

Matt Cellitti, from DubSpot, is back with yet another great video tutorial showcasing Native Instruments Maschine and how you can layer some of their synths to create super fat sounds. NI Massive, FM8 and Reaktor are all used here to build up an amazing sound that is easily triggered by Maschine and Matt walks us through each step of the process of overdubbing and how it all works in the Native Instruments workflow. When are able to take the best parts of each synth and each sounds they produce and layer them all into one instrument as easy as this, there are no limits to what kind of huge sounds you can add to your projects. Below are a few words from Matt about what the transition from Kore to Maschine has provided us and how we can make the most of it.

Native Instruments’ Maschine is fast becoming the weapon of choice for producers worldwide due to it’s fast workflow and physical interface that brings instant musical gratification to computer-based music production. Maschine combines the strengths of a DAW with the flexibility of MPC-style sequencing and the massive sound library that Native Instruments has been developing since the company’s inception in 1996. NI introduced a massive upgrade to the platform this spring with the release of Maschine 1.6 – an update that added more sounds, functionality and flexibilty for producers.

The most significant feature to come with Maschine 1.6 is support for third-party plugin hosting which allows you to use VST and AU plugins as individual sound sources and effects in your Maschine project. It also incorporates some of Kore 2′s functionality for combining plug-ins which allows for creative sound design possibilities. Layering synth sounds is a fundamental part of sound design and an essential production technique in electronic music.

Dubstep Wobble ReSampling in Logic Pro 9 / Express (ESX24 Sampler)

 

This is a pretty solid walkthrough of how to not only resample in Logic using the EXS24 sampler, but also shows how to automate glide and LFOs to generate professional sounding wobbles. YouTube user StephenWalking always kicks down some good knowledge when it comes to working with Logic, but keep in mind that the techniques he shares here are also applicable to any other program you may be working with. Resampling is a great way to create more complex sounds with added character that is simply not possible with basic single instrument sound design. It is also something used by many of the most popular dubstep musicians today to build the huge, hard-hitting sounds that have become one of the key signatures of the genre.

When getting started with resampling, the best thing to do is PLAY! Experiment and explore the possibilities available to you with the sounds you have on hand. You will be surprised by what sounds go great together, and you will never find the best sounds possible without combining some sounds generated by the randomizing features found in just about every kind of synth nowadays. Just a little hint! ;) Now go have some fun!

The Dubstep Bass – Created with Spectrasonics Omnisphere Virtual Synth

 

Now I’m not normally one for the trade show videos which showcase a new product, as they are often very cheesy and come across as totally contrived. And this does have some of those elements (especially in how it is presented). BUT, it does have a few very cool things happening, like the super fat bass created in a few easy steps, the live appeal and the integration of the iPad controlling Omnisphere. It all comes together quite nicely and shows off the potential of good hardware and software working together for both live and recording situations. It’s worth a couple minutes of your time and you get to see some of the new features of Spectrasonics legend while you watch.

DJ Tutorial – Dubstep Mixing for Beginners with the Numark Mixtrack Pro

 

For those of you just getting started with DJ hardware and live dubstep mixing in general, this nice video from YouTube user should help to get you going. It’s pretty straight forward, moves in real-time through a song mix and it’s very transparent as to what every step throughout the process is and why it’s being done. The hardware being used in this video is a Numark Mixtrack Pro, but the concepts are the same and the techniques are applicable to any DJ mixing hardware/software you may happen to be using.

With so much emphasis on dubstep production within DAWs online these days, it is nice to see guys like CautionCrisis taking some time to create some comprehensive tutorials for the DJs out there. If you enjoy what he’s doing and like what he’s all about, let him know and show him some support!

Sound Design w/ Maschine Tutorial Using FM8, Massive & Reaktor

 

Matt Cellitti, from DubSpot, is back with yet another great video tutorial showcasing Native Instruments Maschine and how you can layer some of their synths to create super fat sounds. NI Massive, FM8 and Reaktor are all used here to build up an amazing sound that is easily triggered by Maschine and Matt walks us through each step of the process of overdubbing and how it all works in the Native Instruments workflow. When are able to take the best parts of each synth and each sounds they produce and layer them all into one instrument as easy as this, there are no limits to what kind of huge sounds you can add to your projects. Below are a few words from Matt about what the transition from Kore to Maschine has provided us and how we can make the most of it.

Native Instruments’ Maschine is fast becoming the weapon of choice for producers worldwide due to it’s fast workflow and physical interface that brings instant musical gratification to computer-based music production. Maschine combines the strengths of a DAW with the flexibility of MPC-style sequencing and the massive sound library that Native Instruments has been developing since the company’s inception in 1996. NI introduced a massive upgrade to the platform this spring with the release of Maschine 1.6 – an update that added more sounds, functionality and flexibilty for producers.

The most significant feature to come with Maschine 1.6 is support for third-party plugin hosting which allows you to use VST and AU plugins as individual sound sources and effects in your Maschine project. It also incorporates some of Kore 2′s functionality for combining plug-ins which allows for creative sound design possibilities. Layering synth sounds is a fundamental part of sound design and an essential production technique in electronic music.

How to Make a Talking Wobble Using Operator and Sylenth

 

A rather unique video showing how to create a nice talking wobble bass in both Sylenth and Ableton, which is nice because you often need more than one in a good dubstep project! YouTube user takes the time to show us the process in Ableton first and then jumps right into Sylenth, seeing just how easy it is to make a professional sounding vowel bass wobble for your music will hopefully inspire you to take advantage of being able to create sounds in multiple synths in one project. This adds just one more layer of complexity and character to your work that would otherwise be a bit flat creating all your sounds in one synth. Enjoy!

I love working with Zebra because it is such a free, do-what-you-want kind of sound design experience every time I step up to it. This great video tutorial shows off very nicely exactly what I mean by that! YouTube user walks us through the entire process of making a super fat and dirty bass in Zebra, entirely from scratch. Starting with creating a custom wavetable to using the SpectroBlend tool to generate your base sound, he then takes you through the steps of automating your modulation and filters. Each part of the process is detailed and explained very well so anyone can follow along no matter what experience level you may have with this synth. Zebra is sure to get more attention here as time goes by, because in my opinion it is one of the most powerful sound design tools available to us right now.

Dubstep Wobble ReSampling in Logic Pro 9 / Express (ESX24 Sampler)

 

This is a pretty solid walkthrough of how to not only resample in Logic using the EXS24 sampler, but also shows how to automate glide and LFOs to generate professional sounding wobbles. YouTube user always kicks down some good knowledge when it comes to working with Logic, but keep in mind that the techniques he shares here are also applicable to any other program you may be working with. Resampling is a great way to create more complex sounds with added character that is simply not possible with basic single instrument sound design. It is also something used by many of the most popular dubstep musicians today to build the huge, hard-hitting sounds that have become one of the key signatures of the genre.

When getting started with resampling, the best thing to do is PLAY! Experiment and explore the possiblities available to you with the sounds you have on hand. You will be surprised by what sounds go great together, and you will never find the best sounds possible without combining some sounds generated by the randomizing features found in just about every kind of synth nowadays. Just a little hint! ;) Now go have some fun!

Dubstep Song Structure

 

This is a great video showing you how to go about arranging your dubstep songs to work best for DJs and meet some of the main standards of the industry. It’s not too often you find someone willing to share their own work in such a transparent manner. Throughout the entire video, YouTube user not only shares each component of one of his songs, but he also explains why he chose to do what he did in each instance. This is by no means a formula for every single dubstep track you ever write, but it is a great place to start and will certainly help those who have struggled with structuring their songs in the past.

I like this video tutorial for those who have no proper musical training in their background because he tries his best to go about explaining how and why he does what he does without using any technical jargon. Although very basic in his approach, the content he delivers is good and is relevant and useful for anyone producing quality dubstep tracks. Although Cubase is the DAW shown and Rough Rider is the compressor used, you can accomplish all of this using whatever programs and plugins you prefer or happen to have on hand.

Post-Dubstep Ideas & Experiments in Found Sound

Post-Dubstep Ideas & Experiments in Found Sound

While the “post-Dubstep” genre tag may not clearly define a particular sound, it does help recognize the diversity happening among the music. Logic producer Tom Maisey brings us another original tutorial on his YouTube account, soundsLogical. Like always, Tom fills us in on how to create meaningful dub music with intuitive techniques.

However, this tutorial extends its purpose and showcases the Freesound Project, a website of fully-licensed field recordings for commercial use. As the narrator explains, these field recordings create an entirely new feel to your production. It’s important to experiment with different ideas and include varying sounds in your work, as this establishes a sense of creativity and diversity. With that said, Tom presents a post-Dubstep sketch of audio that includes a few mechanical samples from the Freesound Project website.

The tutorial video continues and we see exactly how to experiment with these field recordings. Tom reminds us that while structure and form in music production are both essential, the ideas and creativity are what bring everything to life.

How To Make Snappy Snares In Dubstep Using Compression

 

Getting your snare drum to cut through your mix is a constant focus of anyone producing quality dubstep tracks today, and YouTube user brings us another great video tutorial showing us how to do this using compression in Ableton Live. What he shares is a very basic approach to compressing snares for this style of  music. Of course, if you take a closer look at the transient of the sample along with the attack and release of the compression you can easily fine tune this for your projects. Although this is a topic that we could literally discuss for weeks and still not cover everything for everyone’s style of music production, but this is a kind of one-size-fits-all approach to help get you going. Hope it helps!

This video shows how you can go about using Native Instruments FM8, Ableton Live and a couple plugins to create a Skrillex-like growl bass sound. Each change made throughout the process is well explained by YouTube user so whether you are new to FM8 or sound design using frequency modulation synthesis in general, you will be able to end up with the same sound made in the video when you are finished. FM8 is a program used by many of the big names in dubstep right now, including Skrillex, and is well worth your consideration if you do not already have it!

Native Instruments Razor Dubstep Wobble

 

A look at the newest synth from Native Instruments called Razor. There is so much focus on Massive and FM8 when it comes to making dubstep with their synths that this recent addition is often overlooked. This video from YouTube user shows us just how quick and easy it can be to make a basic dubstep wobble bass using Razor. And with it’s minimal design you are not overwhelmed by options in all directions. You build it up as you go along, which may be a refreshing change for you.

The Dubstep Bass – Created with Spectrasonics Omnisphere Virtual Synth

 

Now I’m not normally one for the trade show videos which showcase a new product, as they are often very cheesy and come across as totally contrived. And this does have some of those elements (especially in how it is presented). BUT, it does have a few very cool things happening, like the super fat bass created in a few easy steps, the live appeal and the integration of the iPad controlling Omnisphere. It all comes together quite nicely and shows off the potential of good hardware and software working together for both live and recording situations. It’s worth a couple minutes of your time and you get to see some of the new features of Spectrasonics legend while you watch.

Adding Parallel Compression to Your Dubstep Music

 

This is a solid tutorial from Mr. Bill, who really knows his stuff!. In this installment he walks you through a more advanced technique of subtractively adding parallel compression to your dubstep projects. He uses Ableton Live and shows you step-by-step the entire process, with the technically proper approach, to this professional studio practice of adding more frequencies and an overall better bass mix which will round out and build up your song to a more professional quality. Explaining why and how each step works throughout the tutorial, he shows you exactly how to build up bigger bass sounds without making your song muddy, while making your highs and mids ring true. This really is a brilliant method and is well worth the time to watch it at least once! Many of the big name artists like Skrillex, Zomby, 12th Planet, Doctor P and many many more use this same approach. It is something you will use again and again for years to come.

Ableton Live Dubstep Tutorial – Creating Melodies in Massive (Part 2)

Part two of AscianUK‘s melody tutorial in Ableton Live and Massive expands on the basic configuration of the first video. With mindful effects and settings, viewers can recreate the sounds detailed in this Massive tutorial video so they may sharpen the overall track. Besides effects and oscillator settings, the attack, decay, sustain and release envelope positioning can also change the way each sound is output.

This second video dives deeper into the execution of each of the melodies previously created. Using effect techniques such as compressing the melodies or including reverb will add new life to the Dubstep track. Native Instruments Massive is built for creative melodies and stabs in mind, therefore it becomes the perfect tool in this scenario. While a song’s arrangement and instrumentation may sound interesting before completion, spending time modifying the stab and lead melodies will help enrich the overall sound of the finished product. Even with background melodies such as the stabs, the right settings will greatly improve the entire feel of a track. AscianUK continues on with specific envelope settings, but you may determine different effects work better for your own project.

Stay tuned for more Ableton Live tutorials geared toward Dubstep-minded producers.

Braille – A Meaning EP (Hotflush Recordings)

Dubstep and experimental breakbeat label Hotflush Recordings has consistently stayed ahead of the proverbial Dubstep curve since their inception in 2003. Their latest release comes from Praveen Sharma under his Braille moniker. Enthusiasts may recognize the name as one half of Sepalcure with NYC-based Machine Drum, and the music here is equally as impressive. A Meaning EP features four glistening tracks that each posses original sounds to stand alone, but together they form a complete thought.


But as you browse through the playlist on Hotflush’s HFT017 release from the New York artist, it really makes you consider the amount of influence that helped create this EP. Each track includes carefully arranged percussion in the same vein as Dubstep, but the melodies and progression are reminiscent of classic house anthems. Whichever genre tag is necessary, the 128 bpm tempo music is perfect for eclectic mixing or enjoyable home listening.

Ableton Live Dubstep Tutorial – Creating Melodies in Massive (Part 1)

YouTube user AscianUK has taught viewers — through video tutorials and expert narration — how to create fat and punchy kick drums paired with shuffling hi-hats in Ableton Live. With his arrangements, a nice beginning to a Dubstep track appears and a growling undertone forms. But the production journey certainly doesn’t end there, and so AscianUK presents this two-part tutorial series on melodies and leads. Native Instruments’ Massive is the key focus instrument for this section, but any full VSTi, such as FAW’s Circle or VST Vanguard, should suffice.

Viewers are treated to a full run-down of melodies needed to create a basic Dubstep track. The first video of this two-part series introduces the synth stab, an often necessary technique used to create small melodies in the background of the main project. For this instance, a square-wave stab features a multi-octave arrangement. Playing around with the arpeggiator and related effects can yield many different results when initially setting up the stab’s sound, so it’s best to play around until the desired effect is achieved.

Now comes the melody, which feels a bit softer than the stabs when worked into the mix. Again, the best sound comes with production experimentation, therefore always pay careful attention to every change that’s made. Part two of this video series dives more into the finishing aspect of the melodies, so stay tuned.

Ableton Live Dubstep Tutorial – Fat & Punchy Kick Drum

 


An often overlooked but assuredly vital part of making a dubstep tune lies in the production of the kick drum. YouTube user AscianUK checks in with this tutorial on how to make a fat and punchy kick drum for your dubstep desires. A relatively newcomer to videos, he brings this well-thought video on how to create short but powerful kick drums with savvy EQ techniques. While the process seems long and involved, this Albeton Live Dubstep tutorial explains exactly how a kick drum works within a given space.

As the tutorial progresses, we learn several subtle techniques that will make our kick drums fat and punchy, standing above the rest in terms of quality. The video continues and the importance of adjusting the attack of the sound wave, lowering the kick drum’s volume to -10 dB and adding small effects is discussed. The end result provides you with a nice, clean sound, a perfect answer to over-compressed kick drums that fill so many dubstep songs today.

AscianUK also includes links to any samples used in his production, eradicating any confusion that may lie between the viewer and his own work studio.

Create Four Tet Style Synth Loops in Logic

Four Tet is the moniker of London-based Kieran Hebden, an electronic music producer who’s worked with experimental greats Burial, Aphex Twin, Radiohead, Kings of Convenience, Matthew Dear, Black Sabbath and many more. His musical reach is further than standard Dubstep, but his careful production techniques have found him producing experimental versions of the popular UK genre. For this particular tutorial, YouTube user soundsLogical teaches viewers how to create synth loops in the same style as Four Tet himself. While these tones and arrangements may not sound like the typical Dubstep track, the creativity alone may lead to something unique.

Logic is the chosen software workshop for the tutorial, and stock sound banks and presets are used for ease of understanding. In addition to the style of sound that soundsLogical creates, he shows viewers exactly how to achieve that glitchy tone through bar progression. Even though the end result may appear difficult to clone, it’s all a matter of timing and positioning. Incorporating these fun Four Tet synth loops into a Dubstep tune brings new life to an otherwise gloomy genre. Stray away from creating the same basslines and synths but keep the tempo and broken beat percussion to produce fresh music. In the end, you are the most important person to please.

How to make a Dubstep Wobble Bass in Renoise, by 8Bit!

 


 

This is really awesome! 8Bit has put together a video tutorial all about how to make a dubstep wobble bass using a totally new technique. It all centers around using a small snippet of a sample of just about any music (literally any music) and then modifying and automating it until it becomes a sick wobble bassline. This truly is a unique approach, and one you are going to love playing around with! This was re-posted by YouTube user , so check out his stuff and support him as well, if you like it.

And now, over to landbridge…

Quick lesson from 8Bit himself on how to quickly make that wobble bass you hear these days (from the kids with their hotrods, knife-fights and doowop rat tails.) Basically you cut a sample down to a 10th of a second, loop it, insert a lowpass filter and automate it with an LFO modulation device. The rest is just making it thicker, harder and programming the wobble using the automation points.

Remaking “An Introduction to Dubstep” Production with Ableton Live & Massive

 


 

Here is another tutorial from YouTube user eameres2, focusing on recreating a viral sensation from Dubba Jonny called An Introduction to Dubstep using Ableton Live with Native Instruments Massive synth and Reaktor.

And now more from Eric (aka LearnMax)…

This is part two of a work in progress. I’m trying my hand at remaking Dubba Jonny’s “Introduction to Dubstep Production” on UKF records. The original production is particularly thick and is loaded with that dubstep filth that takes me a while to hone in on a particular sound, pitch and note duration. I’m sort of re-interpretting it rather than remaking it exactly.

Sidechain compression is the key to getting things to mesh together without getting muddy rather than nice and “filthy”! It gets one sound to duck out of the way of another nicely.

I’m using Massive and Reaktor in addition to Operator and everything built into Ableton Suite

10 Best Analogue Synths for Dubstep

10 Best Analogue Synths for Dubstep

When electronic music first came about, it was created on heavy pieces of hardware gear that featured complicated — and sometimes downright confusing — equalizer settings, wires and knobs for precise sound control. For over a decade now, many music producers have turned toward computers and virtual software to help them create melodies and drum beats. Not only does a computer provide a musician with an extremely portable workstation, but this virtual studio also comes at a more affordable price. However, some will argue that nothing, absolutely nothing, can beat the sound achieved from a nice analogue synthesizer. This 10 Best list may showcase synthesizers you’re familiar with while shining the light on lesser known analogue gear.

1. Dave Smith Instruments Prophet ‘08 PE Keyboard Synthesizer

2. Dave Smith Instruments Mopho Keyboard Analog Synthesizer

The yellow-colored Mopho may seem like a cute little synth keyboard that your sister might play with, but inside this beast lies one voice, two oscillators and four LFOs to create full, beefy basslines. On paper, this synthesizer seems like the perfect addition to any studio. In reality, the Mopho is the perfect synthesizer, as its craftsmanship and attention to detail is immaculate.

3. Analogue Solutions Telemark Synthesizer

The Telemark synthesizer may seem like a reproduction of the Oberheim SEM, but Analogue Solutions’ intentions with his hardware were certainly not the same. For starters, this semi-modular synthesizer does not have any Voice DSP and features no presets. All of the Telemark’s effects and filters allow users to easily design the intended sound, and its single-LFO should create some unique Dubstep bass grooves.

4. Doepfer Dark Energy Analog Monophonic Synthesizer

5. MFB Nanozwerg Monophonic Analog Synthesizer

6. Moog Slim Phatty

7. Moog Voyager Old School

8. Mode Machines x0xb0x Socksbox Synthesizer

Ableton Live: How to Make Dubstep Part 2

New York City-based Dubspot offers classes on both audio production and DJ mixing, providing music enthusiasts a whole new way to get creative. If you don’t have the money to attend a training school but still want to learn how to produce, Dubspot has set up a series of tutorials on their YouTube page. Part one of the Dubstep production series shows users how to setup and arrange drums in the Ableton Live software. For part 2, Dubspot expands on the drums with groove types and features VSTs to create synthesized sound.

While the narrator quickly draws in hi-hats to the original drum beat created in part one of this video series, he explains how changing the sound bank file type to a groove can add a textured feel to the music. Play around with these doppelganger presets until you find the right one.

VSTs, available for purchase or free download at any number of sites, allow users to create real sound that mimics hardware instruments. In the second half of part two, the Dubspot tutorial narrator creates a simple synthesized bassline on top of the Dubstep percussion. Work with your own VST’s settings and different effects to create the intended sound for your production. Just like tangible instruments, these VSTs will help you craft the necessary tone for your Dubstep track.

UK Garage Tutorial – Part 1: The Drums

Sometimes the best way to create electronic dance music is to throw out any preconceived production ideas. The same holds true for Dubstep, and with a few minor tweaks in the percussion, bass and melody arrangements, the sound can truly become something fresh and meaningful. Forget traditional production for a moment, then snap yourself back into reality.

For this particular video tutorial, YouTube user BeatMaster1 walks viewers through the basic setup of UK Garage drums in Ableton Live. With some mindful arrangements of stock Ableton drum samples, a shuffling percussion pattern comes to life. Follow the copy & paste looping technique used in the video to craft your own UK garage beat. The melody and the bassline from a typical Dubstep track will sound much different with a quick-paced drum section underneath, but you should experiment with the positioning of each hi-hat, snare, clap or kick you choose to feature.

While the two electronic genres may follow different rhythm patterns by definition, Dubstep and UK Garage have many similarities in track construction and sound. The key to creating a unique Dubstep track — or any type of song — lies in using production techniques from other genres.

Dubstep Tutorial with Benga: Part 3

Dubstep Tutorial with Benga: Part 3

The third and final installment in the Benga Dubstep tutorial series talks about loading all of the saved work into Logic from Fruity Loops. He’s been kind enough to walk us through the sound creation, effects implementation and mixing down, so now the track must be finalized before it can be released. Benga explains why he’s chosen a program such as Logic Pro for arrangement and mastering, the two integral steps before a track is truly complete. Without careful consideration of levels throughout these processes, all of your hard work is meaningless.

Feel each of the track’s sounds as they work together once arranged. Start your kick drum at a low volume level, then slowly work the low-end percussion into the mix. Adjust the levels until you feel This tactic helps you determine the right level of volume, reducing overcompensation of sounds. Additionally, use this technique for other sounds to create a balanced nature to the Dubstep track at hand. You shouldn’t need to use much compression — if any compression — as these effects can be limiting and hinder the quality of your final product.

These are the basics of Dubstep production using two different DAWs to create one unified tune. Follow the suggestions of Benga to flow comfortably in your workstation, but experiment often until you reach the end goal. While these techniques may work in the end, developing a track still takes creativity and willingness.

Ableton Live: How to Make Dubstep Part 1

How to Make Dubstep Pt 1/3 w/ Ableton Live: Drums & Envelopes

Famed New York DJ school, Dubspot, brings viewers this savvy presentation of Dubstep production for the Ableton Live platform. The narrator talks about the elementary setup of a typical track, as different producers have their own methods when starting. For this particular Dubstep video, the drum beat and percussion is the main focus for a new production. While drum presets come available with Ableton Live, building a percussion kit from scratch furthers the intended track’s originality.

Once the necessary kick drums, snares and hi-hats have been loaded into the blank Ableton template, simply double-click on the top rectangular box of the sound’s channel. From here, it’s easy to determine where in the bar each of the percussion hits should be placed. As discussed in the video, a drum envelope can further each sound’s expected feel. Use these sparingly, but play around with the different settings to achieve the right sound for the Dubstep project at hand. Otherwise, the rest is all in the ears of the beholder.

How to make a Dubstep Wobble Bass in Renoise


Quick lesson from 8Bit himself on how to quickly make that wobble bass you hear these days (from the kids with their hotrods, knife-fights and doowop rat tails.) Basically you cut a sample down to a 10th of a second, loop it, insert a lowpass filter and automate it with an LFO modulation device. The rest is just making it thicker, harder and programming the wobble using the automation points. PART 2 is now up, "How to make a Dubstep Beat in Renoise": www.youtube.com Remember to subscribe and like this video, maybe Ill make more vids like this. :) Donate andor hit me up at : www.eightbit.com Buy Renoise at : www.renoise.com

Dubstep Wobble Bass in Logic ES2 – LFO Explained


www.pointblankonline.net In this video Danny J Lewis delves into LFO (low-frequency oscillation), a function found on many synthesizers such as Logics ES2. He uses the frequency analyser to explain exactly what is happening to the sound waves when you add LFO. LFO is the foundation of the classic wobble bass which is very popular with producers of tear-out dubstep (or brostep as it has become known in certain circles!). This video is taken from the brand new Dubstep Pro Producer Course in Logic which covers not only this type of sound, but also all the various offshoots that have evolved since dubstep emerged. You can find out more about the course here: www.pointblankonline.net The dubstep course is also available in Ableton here: www.pointblankonline.net Please subscribe to our channel to make sure you dont miss future exclusive tutorials from Point Blank Online school.

Logic Chord Memorizer – Scale Correction


www.pointblankonline.net – In this video Danny J Lewis demonstrates a free downloadable scale correction tool for Logic which is very useful, especially for those who arent musically trained and struggle with the theory side. It allows you to select a specific scale and if you play a note which is not in that scale, it is automatically remapped to one that is. This means you can tinkle away on the ivories with your eyes closed and not hit a bum note… Pretty cool! You can download it here: www.box.net This is another video taken from the upcoming Dubstep Pro Producer Course in Logic which launches in August.
