i got it. you use let me try to explain this the best i can.
right after the drop, have a super hard kick and snare with reverb, then have a MASSIVE (size, not plug in) sidechain hooked up to it with the bass used pre-drop, and a super gritty patch at the same time.
I swear im not trying to get you to listen to my stuff, but here is a great example of it from 2:20-end (helps you get a feeling for the song a bit.)
Just use a grittier plug in than what i got.
and would you like to collab? i got FL Studio/Massive/Nexus. i love doing post drops, but i feel like i suck at intros. PM if youd like to work something out.
Great job bud!
3 stars (always on wips)
thanks for your feedback, i will try to play around with something really gritty :)) seems like a good idea!
i will pm you because of collab but in a few weeks. first i still wanna learn a little bit myself and finish all the unfinished projects i have so far
Perhaps try dropping everything except bringing in a big bass sound, then after 2 beats or 1 bar, bring in the drums again with a crash, and any amount of the original melodies that existed before in this clip. Also listen to dubstep by other artists and you may be inspired. feel free to check mine out too, best of luck!
Well yeah that's what i tried. Nothing except a drum pattern and a fat bass sound directly after the intro (instant at 00:55), sounds crappy, no matter how i tweak massive and no matter what tone i use...
Is the buildup just so bad that it has to sound crappy? :(
the sickest drops are the simpler ones. if it sounds cheesy, you should try dropping the chord progression all together and try and find cool sounds that work well together rhythmically. as time goes on you can start figuring out how to put more melodic elements back in. you should check out some older dubstep and take note
