Dubstep Production Library
The dubstep label Phantom Hertz Recordings started a remix contest a month ago for the track "Abduct" by High Dude. The contest ended yesterday and you could now listen to my submission here on this soundcloud widget:
"Three winners will be chosen to have their remixes of High Dude's track 'Abduct' officially released on Phantom Hertz Recordings on all good digital shops (Juno, Beatport, iTunes, etc)!"
Noizefield released a nice free glitch sample pack with 499 different one-shot sounds called "Lost Glitches". All samples were created on a Modular synthesizer with modules from Intellijel, MutableInstruments, Cwejman, 4ms, Metasonix, Qu-Bit and Doepfer. Each .wav file was recorded, post processed and mastered with the finest equipment to provide impressive sounds.
The Lost Glitches Pack is suitable for EDM, Glitch Hop, Trap, Drum and Bass, Dubstep, FutureGarage, Electro and many other electronic genres.
I released a fresh new sample pack, this time my first free drum and bass sample library. This one contains 20 different royalty free drumloops, recorded in 170bpm as well as 178bpm. Beside that the package involves 10 One-Shot Drum Samples like bassdrums, snares, hihats and percussion sounds. All samples are recorded as 24bit .wav files and could be used in commercial music productions of course.
I found this interesting picture of the first (1.0) version of Fruity Loops from 1998! It's really astonishing how this sequencer developed over the years, we are now at version 12 with some great features. Nevertheless the first version got a great oldschool retro look :)
I uploaded a fresh new GlitchHop / Dubstep like 79bpm tune on my Soundcloud, have a listen here:
One of my favorite DnB producers uploaded a pretty nice drum and bass mix a few days ago on Soundcloud. Reso made a mixset for MistaJam's show on BBC Radio 1Xtra. This one hour set can now be downloaded on his Soundcloud. It features fresh tracks from Evol Intent, SpectraSoul, Black Sun Empire, Audio, Spor and of course Reso himself.
All your low frequencies in your mix should have a mono instead of a stereo sound. This will result in a much clearer bass for your kick and bassline. Tone Projects offers a great free tool for this problem, the TP Basslane. Put this VST plugin in your mastering channel, set it around 185 to 250 Hertz and it will center all your low frequencies below this value. It's very easy to handle, have a look here:
I uploaded a preview drum and bass tune on my soundcloud from my forthcoming EP on Sub:lvl Audio. This ep will be released on the 15th April 2015 and will feature a drum and bass as well as dubstep track from myself.
The deep dubstep producer Gastly released a fresh free dubstep sample kit consisting of 43 files. He concentrated on creating a lot of useful one-shot samples: Hihats, kicks, bassdrums, percussions, snares and clap sounds. He also added a bonus folder with some nice bass sounds and drum loops.
