Gone back to making dubstep music again, so yeah.
Special thanks to Jewelz123 for giving feedback (via Skype) on this.

Any, and all constructive criticism is welcome.

*edit: whoops wrong genre*


Not bad man! Have you ever thought to layer different drum samples to make new fatter drum sounds? That snare sounds like a good start but it's kind of hollow. I'd add a snare that hits some mids, and a snare that has some low end to it. You can always EQ your drums later to help the different layers mesh. For dubstep you really want to make those drums huge. You can phatten them up a bit by using a compressor to boost the signals a tad. Sometimes I have a hard time telling if someone is side chaining but if you aren't already doing it you should learn how to! Side chaining will let you control the levels of one instrument with the levels of another. In other words you can make the bass cut out every time the kick/snare hits to help create space and make the drums pop!

I'm in love with your synth work. You can layer synths much in the same way that I mentioned layering snares. Expand that frequency range :3

One last thing, you'll notice that a lot of professionals will include vocal samples and pads in their tracks. Pads are just atmospheric synths that add character to a track. I didn't really hear and pads in this. The vox will do the same trick. It gives people something to really remember the track by. Even if people forget the name of the track they might say later "hey, that song with the Family Guy sample in it was awesome!"

Keep it up man, I'm loving the sounds :)

Funnily enough, this is my only recent track that I'm too lazy to try and layer stuff. It always end up too messy in the mix (or to my ears). Maybe I'm not doing it properly. Same thing applies to synth layering. As for side chaining, I roughly understand how to do it, and I should probably try it sometime.

For pads, I'd probably slide in a simple pad progression. Putting in vocals or voxes are my weakest link. I just don't know how to work with them.

Can I hav this flp? ;D

hmm not bad its like an old school sci-fi space monster film meets a rave party
