Well, my first attempt at this genre. I personally thought it went okay. Dubstep remix of my Ex Nihilum song, kinda detached itself from the original tune with the whole orchestral part.

Crank up your subs, this bitch gets -3 db in the 30 - 50 hz range.

Thanks to Spikrodd for providing a dubstep demo (though I can't open the actual demo because I use FL 8) containing a cool-ass drum track and some tips on making that signature bass.

Throw me suggestions, I'm not liking the mid-range synth in the intro too much.

Sandpaper. Mhmm.. I disagree.

I really like muffled wubs. I do not know why. They work for me just as much as prominent wubs. It makes a song sound very mysterious, like falling deep into a cave. The strings were really epic like. I give this a 10. There were a few other songs that people said ''The wub is too muffled, and dry''. I disagree. I think it deserves it's own system in the Dubstep genre. It has it's own factors, and touches to a song. :P This was really good. :D 5/5 10/10 Keep up the work :D.

I like how the bass sounds just fine too lol. It's more intense this way I do believe.

I think it's funny that such a cool sound is produced by forcing a gross sound (Disharmonic waves) to work with each other.

unique styles!

After this I'll have to hit up ur original track.

I've been cranking dubstep like crazy lately and am enthused to review more submissions on NG.

First of all, your drums need to be cut time. It is fun and cool to throw in full Drum N Bass loops for effect but the swing and ever plodding snare with symbols bouncing around on rhythm is most signature to dubstep.

Next is the very key baselines to accompany the swinging beat. Perfecting this is the hardest thing to do. Try to get that wobble very crisp and distinct. Find a balance of low end vs. High freq to make that" hard" sound ppl geek over. Unfortunately 8 am on head phones right now so your baseline sounds a little hollow and cluttered in the mid range (if that doesn't contradict one another).

This song is very cool in its own way tho! The mid range lead isn't for dubstep but more DnB and some electronic musicvin that sense I like it alot. I also like the orchestra bits super nice touch. The eerie ambient breakdown before the final hurrah is very sick reminds me of classic aphex twin stuff.

Sorry for the long review keep pushing dubstep styles, hopefully I will get some of mine uploaded.

Keep it wildstyle,

Hey thanks man. Yeah the original song was pretty heavy on DnB and EDM (Give it a hear, you'll see what I mean), so I just wanted to keep some of its spirit in here. I feel it was bit of a mess on the transitions and the whole "Ex Nihilum" part. I'm considering scrapping the DnB sections and just keeping it more focused on the orchestra and the ambient part. I was finding it rather tough to get the bass to sound more crisp without making it sound like sandpaper, so I shot for more of a Hip Hop bass instead. I'm also using headphones, but they have good low range so I didn't have a problem with it lol (My laptop speakers suck balls).

I'll keep trying man.
