    Can I download that instrument Rack Preset???? Please!!!

  2. AsylumShadow A.S. says:

    Having not known this, being that I listen to lots of dubstep has sucked.
    Now I understand more of the development towards dubstep! I’ll stay tuned
    to mores videos. I am so surprised that it is that complex, but I guess if
    I learned the steps first hand I would think differently. Around how much
    money does every good DJ pay to make dubstep, $30, 000, lol? Anyways, I am
    getting side tracked… Thanks for the video! 

  3. James Bermingham says:

    Quality video by James Bernard.
    Just what I was looking for.
    I’m also gonna give this a try in Reason 7 using a Combinator as the
    effects rack.

  4. Nathan Harding says:

    Great sample there Jame’s -> 5:56, “So when I turn my knob (pause) my wet
    dry happens and I get all of the effect happening as well.”

    This showed me nothing at all

  20. gooneybird808 says:

    the music is good, the way he goes about making it is lame and uninspired.

  21. DrumInfected says:

    Kudos on the great video editing and design on the Goth-Trad segment video!
    I like how you guys added the video of what he was doing in ableton so we
    know what he’s doing. This could totally be a weekly thing dubspot could
    do every week entitled “building a track” and have other artist do this as

  22. HP Stacks says:

  33. SOAD861 says:

    this visual effects rule remind me of dead space

  34. JIDAYAH1981 says:

    Inspired, thanks Dubspot!

  35. Marc Laflamme says:

    Like what you did with the video Dubspot. Only displaying the relevant
    parts makes watching something stare at a screen and work more interesting.

  36. 4g0ny says:

    wow the menus overlay in 3d is fucking baller

  37. Mellow Dubz says:

    Damn, that sub bass 

  38. 03isub says:

    I do this type of mellow dark tracks randomly often and always end up not
    saving them and deleting them cuz I feel like nobody would listen to that
    type of music..dang now I feel like I deleted something that he might of
    had some potential I did not know there was an audience for this type of
    sound..thanks for the upload this was great!

  39. MrOmegaJohn says:

    he’s going to get back problems sitting like that
