    Dubstep has exploded in popularity in the UK recently, and although im a metalhead at heart I got hold of a load of free VST's and thought id give it a go.
    what do you think?

    I thought dubstep was a reggae derivative? Until the off-beat synth kicked in around 1:00, I didn't really hear anything that recalled reggae rhythms.

    You've got some pretty cool sounds in here though.

    not that bad...I think the drums are a little weak but youve got a good bass there...maybe needs a little more mangling but its close

    Dubstep did come from Reggae, but doesn't necessarily have to sound like it as the genre is defined by the drum beat. An easy 90% of Dubstep sounds nothing like Reggae.

    Anyway, I thought it was good, but could use more work on the bassline. It would sound a lot more "full" if you made it warble; simply strobing it makes it feel flat. Also, I agree with KC that the drums are weak...great Dub has a snare that SLAMS!

    didnt know it originated from reggae!

    yeh i overlooked the drums a bit, im gonna do a few different things like this in future, its quite fun and a break from metal. i agree im not too fond of the main synth sound anymore, but i do love the glitching synth

    thanks for the feedback

    Is reggae the big thing in dance? This sounds Moari (New Zealand) to me.

    its comes from a mixture of underground dance stuff but its based around a bassline, like dub reggae is...hence its name....prolly got more in common with D&B and/or garage than reggae

    It's the big thing in enhancing the effects of recreational drugs. Same goes for Dubstep.

    Not trying to troll or get myself banned or whatever, I'm just saying it how it is.

    I dont care for the snare/sample. But thats just me. Its all about you and if you like it Have you tried it with different snare hits. Maybe use a couple different ones at different times. Its all about experimenting.
