Producing your own Dubstep is Easy

dubstep-appMusic production has been completely and utterly revolutionised in recent years, thanks to huge leaps in technology. The development of digital audio workstation software has become common practice for many programmers, and this has resulted in an abundance of apps, programs for producing original music to become commercially available. Anyone can now produce high quality Dubstep music from their iPad, or iPhone, one their computer at home or anywhere in the world for that matter.

The new range of Dubstep Maker apps that can be installed on your mac or PC, have the capacity to generate professional sounding beats within minutes. Then you layer over your bassline, plus your amazing wobble bass, thanks to the automated LFO plugins.  Once upon a time, you needed a vast array of hardware, a supercomputer and suitable space to conduct your work but those days are well and truly gone. But some people warn that too much technology, even when it comes to EDM and Dubstep, can actually be a bad thing. No matter what music you are creating, their still is some form of art involved and when ever track you compose is comprised of pre-fabricated loops and beats, then all you are doing is piecing together a jigsaw puzzle. This has nothing to do with making dubstep music.

So you literally have a complete, radio-ready Dubstep music track within minutes. So it is rumoured that all the professional DJs and producers will be out of a job, as young kids are making Dubstep music of the same quality. However, I won’t be holding my breath.
