At the begining it sounds more like techno for a while but then it heads into dupstep so its actually a mix. Great job!

I think, overall, it's a very good song. You could touch up on the bass, as has been said by the other reviews. If you like those vocals in, than you could add either some reverb, delay, or some other effect so they don't stand out so much. I especially liked the guitar, but it could've used the variation it has after the drop through the whole song. The whole song seems to repeat itself over again after the second break. So, overall a nice work, but a little more variation could make it a whole lot better.

another great work in progress...

consider Liquid's advice. this track could benefit from being much more aggressive at times to emphasize the slow dub. i really like the hook. until you figure out the rest of this bad boy, drop the vocals entirely.

overall, i feel this track is only a piece of the song it wants to be.
keep it up. can't wait to here this thing in full escape :)

Thanks for the feedback! :)
Yeah as mentioned I really have to work on the drumsounds.
Next step: Adding some automation on the wobble bass and rethinking the use of they yoy-sounds.
Ultimate goal: Learn sound design and produce more awesome basses from scratch than just a simple wobble and a yoy ^^

Pretty good, but lacks a lot. The snare could use some more emphasis on the mid-frequencies, and in combination with a slight damping reverb that would work very well I think. Also, it sounds like your pad has a peak all the way to the right of the frequncy range, you might wanna move that one to the left some more because now it almost sounds like white noise.
The drop is minimal, which makes the vocal a joke. I suggest you remove it. As for the dubstep part itself, it could use some more shit, and it gets kinda repetitive.

4/5, 7/10

Thanks for your review! The snare already got reverb on it, but youre right i could probably EQ it better. About the pad... I don't hear white noise, it's a guitar synth Oo
And yeah of course youre right about the dubstep part, thats why its still work in progress... I lack the skills to do more awesome basssounds than just a simple wobble and a yoy-sound...

Hey. Just woundering. I have the passion for dubsteb/trance/techno making, but i was woundering which program or application would be best to get started.

SirSirius responds:

Hey! :)
I use Ableton 8 but it's totaly up to you. To get started I would probably try FruityLoops. It's probably the most used and there are a lots of tutorials (that you will need!) on the internet for this program.
