I suggest FL Studio, but please don't make dubstep your main goal.

Anyway, there is a list of programs here:

http://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/creator-resources/music-and-a udio-resources/studios-sequencers-and-composers

Doesnt realllly matter which one you use, most popular ones are flstudio, cubase, logic pro (osx only, but teh bestest one ever :P)
And Native instruments Massive is the most widely used synth for creating bass and 'wubs' and stuff.

Also, dont try to sound like skrillex... cos he is shit.

Careful.

Otherwise FL Studio is a great DAW to use. It's probably the most user friendly out there, and by combining Massive, Nexus, and Harmor... you can make some wicked dubstep tracks.

Here's some better advice: Don't be like everyone else. Make something new, or be creative with music that's not dubstep...

In all fairness, you should listen to most of the people on here! xD
Not saying you shouldn't try to create your own dubstep...
BUT PLEASE DONT!

It is the most overused genre in the industry at the moment and in all honesty I get quite sick of going through the portal and finding all these shitty dubstep tracks that sound like kids are sticking toys in a blender..

ON THE OTHER HAND, there are some really good dubstep artists on this website (Such as NIGHTKilla, xKore, my personal faves xD), but I feel as though people are losing interest in experimenting with different genres! I'd love to hear some electro trance or TranceStep or some weird combinations like that!

Be unique! :D

That's because once a more mainstream trend is notices in a particular genre a bunch of people with the demo version of FL Studio start to flood places with their shitty attempts at making music of said genre.

What's to say he isn't making oldskool UK dubstep, like Skream?

Because he didn't mention "oldskool UK dubstep".

I recently tried to make dubstep (Although I actually own FL Studio Producer, not the demo)...

...It... did not end well. I like listening to dubstep, some of it anyways, a lot of it just sounds like garbage to me... but I don't think I'm capable of making it.

Dubstep is basically just becoming glitchy growly complextro nowadays.

I'd try going for that instead.

Also, fuck you for pirating

TL;DR stop being ignorant fucks and respect peoples music taste.

Didn't say I hated it! x) Just feel that artists shouldn't be coaxed into making Dubstep tracks just because they think Skrillex's music sounds TOP NOTCH (Y)?

I respect everyones music taste, (Except maybe Pop music... a bit) and I DO LIKE DUBSTEP! I DO! Especially UK Dubstep like Skream.
Just want people to be unique when trying to create it, not spend half an hour in FLStudio using Skrillex Samples and think they've created something "new" xD

NOT BITCHING! Giving some friendly advice, I hope thats okay? x3

lol what. someone hears a sound that fascinates them, they ask how to emulate it, you coax them into doing something else?

and whether skrillex's music sounds top notch or not is a matter of opinion. no one is right or wrong. i happen to think he is a top notch producer, and as someone that has been producing music for a decade, i find your attitude to be more than a little bit condescending.

The reason it's annoying when people (Mostly kids) ask about "Making Dubstep" is because they only have an interest in that one specific genre.
I mean, I understand that they might like it but to ask a musician what he or she can do to be a "Dubstep Artist" is just dumb.
The fact of the matter is, Musicians produce music, whether it be Dubstep, trance, classical etc.
It's still a person creating music, Not someone working on just one genre and that's it.

The question should be more "What can I do to become a Musician" or "What should I do to learn?"

Just my opinion, but after being told a hundered times by people saying that they're going to become a "Dubstep Artist" I get a bit disappointed and eventually frustrated with them.
I'd much rather someone tell me that they're inspired to make music, not just sound like the rest of the wannabe musicians who say the same thing because its "in" at the moment...

:Really wish we could edit posts in here...

Not to mention, the people who ask such questions like the name of this thread for example, Expect to make the same sounds simply by downloading the same plugins and DAW, when in reality, like all Genre's It's difficult to make and not as straight forward as most people think.

I don't understand how it's annoying. Naive perhaps, possibly even narrow minded, but annoying? Annoying implies that you can't ignore something and move on. I for instance, find this whole argument annoying, because these threads are more often than not full of bullies who take it upon themselves to shove newbies around in the name of "good taste".

I mean, I understand that they might like it but to ask a musician what he or she can do to be a "Dubstep Artist" is just dumb.

What am I supposed to ask then if I want to learn how to produce dubstep?

The fact of the matter is, Musicians produce music, whether it be Dubstep, trance, classical etc.
It's still a person creating music, Not someone working on just one genre and that's it.

I don't understand the relevance of this statement. Benga, Skream, Datsik, Excision, Rusko etc...these are all musicians that more or less produce dubstep exclusively. I would classify them as dubstep artists. The same can be said for musicians who produce other genres almost exclusively. Richie Hawtin, Gabber Front Berlin, Far Too Loud, Kavinsky, Evol Intent etc.

The question should be more "What can I do to become a Musician" or "What should I do to learn?"

Opinions are fun.

Just my opinion, but after being told a hundered times by people saying that they're going to become a "Dubstep Artist" I get a bit disappointed and eventually frustrated with them.

This seems like pretty outrageous hyperbole to me. However, that is an assumption on my behalf, and there's nothing wrong with you being disappointed and frustrated. Seems like a waste of energy to me though.

I'd much rather someone tell me that they're inspired to make music, not just sound like the rest of the wannabe musicians who say the same thing because its "in" at the moment...

That's nice, but people are trying to produce dubstep, not satisfy you.

For any type of electronic music I would say Ableton Live. I've used Reason as well which is quite good if your not bothered about plugins.
