So I decided to open up my new sounds library, and mess with the 'dubstep' section...and plug an acoustic guitar into my audio jack.

And three hours we are.

Wow, you weren't kidding about trying dubstep! Good for you! I like the soothing tone in the beginning. Reminds me of sunrises on the ocean. ^^ Naturally, then the texture gets a bit more hard-hitting, but I'm not sure this qualifies as dubstep, exactly. It certainly has some of the edgy and distorted qualities associated with dubstep, but the instrumentation seems much more typical of rock, and the drum samples are more reminiscent of hip-hop IMO. For me, the most distinctly "dubstep" sound design involves a heavy contrast between the kick and the snare, with a prominent mid-range electronic bass with some LFO automations. That said, this is a beautifully composed, well-structured and smooth-flowing piece with an excellent variety of moods, and has instantly gone on my favorites list...but I don't think it qualifies as dubstep. ;) Sorry to be that guy telling other people what genre their productions fall under. XD Keep it up, Ceevro. ^^

Hehe...I don't think it qualifies either, which is why I kinda noted the homage to hair-bands in the description. But it's also not 80s rock, either. All I know is that the synth sounds came from the 'dubstep' file of my sound library, and I'll admit that I mixed the percs between electric and hiphop.

Not sure how I'd classify this. But that's always a pain in the ass, isn't it? I just played what sounded right.

Start: Interesting way of starting your piece with an acoustic guitar, which I admit sounds awesome. The drums sound pretty nice in that section. Nice chords that fit well with eachother. And the hints of the electric guitar that comes after this section sounds epic, giving us a look at what we'll be listening to. However, whilst all the instruments sound amazing, the actual tone this is supposed to be setting (Dubstep) isn't there. (More on that later) From an aesthetic point of view, this is great, needs some sidechain, otherwise Nice!

Drop...?: I really dont know what to call this. It's got an interesting feel, more Dubstep-like this time around. I really feel this needs... something else. It's got everything you'd really need except for maybe a synth? Everything aesthetic doesn't tell me Dubstep, maybe a bassline or two would help. I'd like to point out however that the electric guitar does sound a bit iffy, and could use a little cleaning up. That's my opinion. Otherwise, nice slow and happy composition, and great sounds.

Composition: 5/5
Aesthetic: 4/5
Tone: 3/5

Overall: 4/5

While although you get some things you wanted, you didn't get the Dubstep part. Dubstep normally includes 2 drops, and filthy bassline. I recommend you look at a guy called NightKilla, he's all about Dubstep, and maybe you could learn some things from him. Otherwise, nice piece, good and soothing. ;3

Yeah, classification is always a bitch, isn't it? I'm just not sure what I should be calling this. The 'dubstep' classification basically came from the folder title of the audio library I used for the samples, though I freely admit I used house and hip-hop percs. Other than that, I just played what I thought sounded right.

As for the electric guitar sounding iffy...well...uh...that was an improv solo played in a single take. There's just gunna be errors in that kind of playing. I'm good, but not good enough to play a flawless solo on the fly!

Thanks for the review! I'll do more research into dubstep, 'cause I think it's got some great sounds that I wanna capitalize on.
