I made this track in a few hours today so its still very repetitive.
Took more of the time doing the drums and they turned out quite well imo.
Any suggestions are welcome.

Enjoy !

Lovin' the wobble. Mind telling me how you make it? I tried making some dubstep today and the wobble is utter horrible. Do you use 3xOsc?

Anyways, on the song. I think you should work on the kick a bit. I hear a bit of 'bounce' in the kick which I found a bit annoying (my opinion). The snare I think, should have more high freq on it, but I'm a beginner at Dubstep so you might just ignore me here :P.

Overall, all nice and wrapped up for a WIP

Well i made the wobble with the Predator plugin.But if you want you can make a pretty nice wobble with the 3Osc and a Love Filter.Just put a low pass filter and modulate the cutoff with your LFO.I don't know what you mean with hearing a bounce in the kick but i think i'll change it alot in the final product.As for the snare it has quite a good presence in the highs.Anyway thanks for the review !

PS.If you have any questions PM me and i'll gladly answer you.Cheers !


my only probs in there is that sometimes the wobble notes are not in melody with the other stuff

MA3HbO responds:

You are quite right.I just throwed some random notes for the wobble.Haven't really spend much time on it.

Yea Yea,

I haven't heard true Ambient Dubstep like this. Most of the time what I hear is usually Ambient 2-Step songs as they skip out on the wobble but keep the drums. I really like the track, especially the drums. I would suggest you keep the wobble because I think it's what makes the track unique, just tweak it a little more to make it go along with the song more. Other than that, fantastic job, can't wait to hear the completed song.

Thanks for the review !
Well to be honest i think this is one of my finest projects for now (having worked on it only a few hours).Its still repetitive and some sounds don't fit but i think i'll put alot more work into this track.The wobble indeed doesn't go too well, but then again i made it pretty fast.I spend most of the time on the drums and the ambiance, although there are no pads yet.I'll let you know when an updated version comes out.
Cheers and thanks again !
