April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 179

With rising popularity, amateur and professional producers alike are seeking information on how to make Dubstep music to get in on this ever-expanding genre.

Download a program called DUBturbo, if you are one of those who don't already own a studio setup. This software is available from our website, which is noted at the bottom of this article.

If you do have experience with sequencing Dubstep music within a digital platform, you are already well versed on certain key elements that will definitely "up" the overall value within your next production, bust before we can conclude there still are other elements that need to be taken into consideration in order to truly go to that "next" level.

As we have noticed that there is a lot more to making Dubstep than simply putting instruments together on a beat, there is a lot more that you can do in order to really make a track that is unique and catchy. So without any further stalling, let's jump right into some tips:

1. Reverb and Effects

Reverb is always nice, except when it comes with your samples. You don't want to throw in samples into your mix with reverb previously on it...if this is the case then simply turn it off. Obviously this isn't a rule set in stone, but let me explain to you why it is better to turn off the reverb. You'll most probably want to add in some reverb at the end of your production, if you have a sample that already has reverb on it you'll be creating a "double reverb" on that specific sample. This means that if you are not careful the "tail" of the sample or the "reverb part" might be over stretched and can interfere with other sounds you have within your track. Therefore it is best to add in Reverb individually at the end of your production in order to have maximum control over your sound.

2. Play around with the dynamics

Dubstep isn't the most complicated style of music to replicate, so in order to keep it interesting you will want to play around with the dynamics of your instruments. What I mean by this is that when you have a bass line that is punchy and as active as Bugs bunny on crack, you'll want to have synths or pads that are slow. When this dynamic shifts and your bass becomes slower, you can then play with the dynamics of pads and leads in order to complement them. You never want to oversaturate your music since the human mind can only distinguish so many sounds consciously. Dubstep is dirty, but this doesn't mean that you have to completely rape the soundscape. Simply know when to make a specific instrument louder or softer by comparing the dynamics of each instrument in each specific part of the track.

3. Play around with octaves:

One superb Dubstep trick is to have the fourth or eighth note of a bass line or a lead be played one octave higher or lower depending on what you want to achieve. What this does is create a "freak note" within the production that gives it that extra special feel to it. Dubstep is something from another dimension, which means that you need to appeal to its unique and strange sound signature if you truly want to create Dubstep. So in order to give it that edge, try to play around with the octaves when making a sequence.


Dubstep has a lot of elements that can be manipulated in order to create a unique sounding track; all you need to do is to find out which ones to manipulate to make the track be your own. I hope these tips will definitely help you in your next production, until then...make awesome Dubstep!
