Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

Yes I get your point Tree.
Making a list like you did and saying we want the old school sub-bass with some new type glitches for example would be a good start in fixing the guidelines of the tunes.
IMO

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

i prob really over rationalized and categorize the gerne but still having it set like this will help clarify things, but honestly its really just up to what the people want to do so that vid you posted was a example of the two extremes somewhat moderated.

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

I'm thinking now maybe I'm making this all too complicated, lol. I'm liking the variety of examples/influences being posted though guys. I want to had more to the conversation, but I need some time to think.

Everyone has their personal tastes and has an idea of what they would like to produce. It seems like the other tapes and just letting people do whatever within the broad spectrum of the genre. Would that just be easier and more fun for everyone? Just throwing that out there...I'd rather design a vibe for the tape...but if that is going to be a mountain to climb... : )

And I totally agree with you guys, this is getting too abstract. If we are going to design the vibe (so to speak) we need to set out some specific guide lines.

So it looks like we might want to do something like:

Tunes need to have an emphasis on subbass/"deep" bass, atmosphere, but also incorporate "modern" sound design (glitchy electro stuff?).

I could def. get down on a 16 bit type vibe or use a description something like the above ^

Thanks for listing those elements/descriptions Tree.

This is a very good idea

I'd love to get involved in this but I am the most unreliable producer, plus I'm about to go travelling so shaln't get the time to co-operate so I'm not going to participate I'm afraid. But thanks for the invite Relic

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

16Bit is a very good reference for me. But I would take it to another level in adding more complex and glitchy sounds as his tunes are often repetetive.

EDIT: I wouldn't put the "modernism" to sound design criteria to the guidelines althgough the tape might be pretty "mashed up" if it's mixed with old and
new stuff. I don't know ... What do you peeps think ?

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

Cool ya'll. Glad we are getting this quite narrowed. How do we describe those mid-rangey type sounds instead of using the word "modern"? I think getting Kong to post some example songs we come up with in the OP will be a good idea.

^Win : )

I think we have our vibe gentlemen. I've got another producer lined up and I'll get Kong to add him to the list and re-post our new guidelines. Then it looks like we can get to producing. You may all want to go back over the stickies in the general beat tape subforum:

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

Just a friendly reminder as you start working. No copyrighted samples and please do not share the music publicly or widely in private (if those are different). I'm available for comments and critique as well as the other producers on the project. Lets keep potential tunes inside this circle.

Thank you! I'm going to jump in ASAP.

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

honestly, im having a hard time trying to glitch my subbass in my songs lmao it sounds really broken. i wonder will it be better to use my main melody as the glitch carrier.

Re: [Dubstep Beat Tape Thread]

Yea...the description says glitchy synths/leads not glitchy sub bass : )


EDIT: I don't even know if it would be possible to make a sub bass "glitch" properly. You could modulate it w/ LFO...done that before, but there isn't much point unless you are doing James Blake style tunes.
