Funkagenda making dubstep wobble bass in Massive

Learning how to create a sound in any sort of music making program can be a difficult task given that fact that there are so many ways to achieve the same type of sound.  It can be as easy or as difficult as you make it, but there are some methods that offer you a level of control that others cannot.  Developers, since the birth of the plug-in, have been looking for easier ways of achieving a desired sound or effect without having to start from scratch.  This is equivalent to buying pancake mix instead of taking out the flour and trying to make it yourself.  The end result should be the same, but one of them offers a little more flexibility within the process.

Dubstep production is not just significant because it is seen as a new genre of electronic music, but because it has also created instruments of its own as a byproduct.  The classic bass and wobble sounds of dubstep are far what anything we have heard with 808 drums or the pop sounding 909.  These require a little more schooling and some careful tooling to get the proper gritty sound that we are so used to hearing.
