Am I Doing Dubstep Right? Some Work In Audacity

Recommended Posts

Phoenyx

I'm working on a dubstep remix of the infamous Lavender Town theme from Pokemon Red (JP), Green (JP), Red (US), Blue (US) and Yellow

It's still a work in progress, so please check back often.

ftp://97.95.232.155/Music/WIP/Lavender%20Town%20Dubstep%20WIP.ogg

You need to have an OGG Vorbis compatible media player (I recommend Foobar2000, but I'm sure that you have your own favorite that works just as well).

The bass starts after the first breakdown. I'm wondering if it's "dubsteppy" enough.

Red & Green had a different Lavender town music than Red & Blue.

And technically, our Red & Blue is just the Blue version released in japan, Renamed with different version exclusive poogeymans.

Yeah no that's not dubstep... thats just added bass. No wubs D: and it needs a bigger drop.

Have a read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubstep

And listen to Skrillex, shockone, Nero, Going Quantum etc...

I do know about it, but I don't have a software bass cannon. I'm trying to get the right effect with a phaser.

It was mainly an instrument swap. The Japanese version contains a few high-pitch tones not present in the American one.

I'm trying to get it there. Maybe I should run a second phaser effect and another bass boost through the bass?

I updated the link (well, actually the target of the link - the link itself hasn't changed). I admit I'm still not satisfied yet but it I think it sounds more wobble-bassy than before.

Just doing Dubstep was your first mistake.

Kidding. I just personally dislike it. McStudz is to Dubstep as Extreme110 is to Ponies.

No offence to you. I dislike it in general.

Try first playing around with the generators, then ask.

I'm using MIDI sequences converted to WAV format and then imported. It allows me to include skills I've already developed into the mix.

Look up FL Studio, and try the demo. If you like the tools it comes with, I can get you the producer version. Skrillex uses FL Studio, and I own a copy as well, and it wouldn't be too hard getting you a copy either.

Unless you want to continue using Audacity, of course.

Honestly, until I can afford something better myself, I'm going to continue using Audacity.

Cyrem, you do know he's my brother right?

He's literally 2 years older than me.

I'm sure he knows what he's doing.

Before I fully respond to this, how much do you know about production?

Also, try searching for "open source DAW" and snoop around and see what you can find. I used Audacity for like 5 tracks before I switched over to Renoise, and then Ableton, and now I use all hardware for my music production.

Also, hey guys I'm back!
