Just me messing around with dblue and a bass, everything created by me so no samples were used. (yes, including the drums as well)

To get the Bass sound, I got white noise and added distortion to it. I then sampled the image in Harmor and set the 'time' function to somewhere that sounded nice, and waveform set 'speed' to 0. I then added a very wide harmonizer and used slightly more square than saw wave in the envelope, but not by much. Finally to make it 'wobble', I set up a phaser with the width all the way up and set speed to 'still'. I then proceeded to automate the filter cutoff and phaser offset with the z combined, and used an automation clip with the 'pulse' set.

All of the 'wobbles' I made are based around triplets, with many variations to give it depth. There are 2 seperate basslines that play, and 2 different 4-bar wobble automation are in for each of hem.

Also, it sounds a bit funky because I accidently set the wrong parameters for the shuffle algorithm on dBlue, and will update this so it does not have it, And potentially also a 'no dBlue' section in the beginning, as well, to show what wobbles I've used (I guess). Tell me what you think of it.


Not bad!!! I'm not a huge fan of dubstep but I like them and I haven't submitted a vote nor a review for audio so this is my first. I just broke my audio cherry :) Good job!

Well, it's a lot harder than it sounds like it would take to make really ;)

Damn this sounds real badass! Sounds like a legitimate bass drop from a famous artist! I love it!

lantaren responds:

Thanks, it says it's taken me 5 hours to make this so far. It's really just been me tweaking things every once in a while though, as any artist will do. Also, mastering was pretty hard... Anyways, thanks man. This is all pretty new to me, so it means a lot that you'd say this about this little demo :)
