    Default Obnoxious new dubstep track

    Have at it, boys. This started out as a joke, and ended up as a joke.

    All comments are appreciated.



    Bonus points to anyone that can name where the same came from.

    Also, on a side note. No LFOs were used in the production of bass in this song. I manually automated the cutoff frequencies. I wish I would have figured that out a long time ago. Way more control.

    I commented on the track on soundcloud..

    What do you mean by "automated the cutoff frequencies"? I have presumed that LFOs applied to.. something.. are responsible for the Dubstep wobble bass.. but I have no idea what you'd be cutting off here? *interested*

    There are a number of ways to control the wobble in dubstep I would assume, LFO being one, side chaining being another and so on.

    He either had the cutoff mapped to a fader or knob (going to guess a fader by how fast it sounded) and was controlling the cutoff himself and was just riding it through out the track. Or he could have just drawn them in as well.

    OR you can automate the LFO frequency and ride that and get some more interesting results. Just set a min and max value and have at it.

    Not rocket science

    Sample is from Family Guy when Mike Tyson is boxing Carol Channing, she says it to the crowd after she wins.

    nice work!

    @Awesomer: I'm pretty sure what he means is that instead of using a wave (LFO) to control the cutoff filter (what makes the bass wobble), he manually wrote the automation on the filter itself, which can be done by mapping a knob or just drawing the automation on the sequencer... something that looks like this: /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

    Actually, i like it more this way, it sounds more... played.

    Yep. I used the fader at first to get a rough idea of what I wanted, and then I cleaned them up by drawing them manually to make sure everything was as tight as it could be.

    You are correct.

    Sure, this is actually the bit that I mostly understood. Is what is being cut off just a simple resonant (hi-pass? lo-pass? notch?) filter? That's the bit I'm not clear on..
