DJNTD - Snake Pit (unfinished)

Author Comments

Back when I was drunk with the dubstep juices, I heard a friend of mine playing Snake Pit (on the sousaphone) during a lull in the rehearsal. Noting that it was at a good dubstep tempo, I decided to try to remix it.

In my opinion, bad idea overall. I like the style, but I just can't go anywhere with it. I still got something likable out of it, so I figured that I'd upload what I managed to pull together.

If anyone wants to pick up where I left off, I can send an flp over. If you do manage to put a full track together, I'd be obliged if you were to give co-producer credit. I also recommend finding a good recording of "Snake Pit" on YouTube. It's that awesome.


Wobble would be nicer :p

Is that some poizone i here? either that or sytrus. anyway nice chilling halloween sound in the beginning. cool melody too. If you want some real sounds to work with though get omnisphere, nexus 2, vanguard and some dubstep samples. there so many other vst's out there i thought id just list a few. :P I dont make dubstep so idk the best for the genre, i just know you could make some killer shit with the right sounds.

NikolaosTheDark responds:

Sytrus. I believe it was the Hypersaw pluck.

Vanguard and Nexus do seem to be tossed around by savvy FL users, and I've thought about acquiring them. I haven't looked into the costs, of course.

Please do explain what kind of dubstep samples you had in mind, though. I thought that this was rather trance-esque, or at least on the side of more mainstream genres, and away from the more rooted reggae style of dubstep. I'm not rejecting a reggae style, of course. I'm just wondering how it would fit together.

Thanks for the review. It's nice to have a review that gets me thinking. I'm actually trying to put another dubstep song together, so a few more ideas/influences wouldn't kill me.

dont be offended

but wheres the wobbly bass? o:

NikolaosTheDark responds:

Not offended at all.

I was honestly going to throw one in there, but didn't want my typical distorted sine and low-pass filter setup, and couldn't think of any good ideas.

Also, while a wobble is sometimes present in dubstep, some songs can survive without it. I personally thought that this demo could survive on its own without it, but meh.

If you want the FLP to this track so you can throw in a wobble, go for it.
