So yeah, my question is simple, really simple.
I have been producing electro/house for over a year now and now im really getting in to drum and bass, especially the sub-genre Drumstep.
My question is simple; How do you make a Drumstep drop?

Im thinking in the style of this song:
http://soundcloud.com/rekoil/rekoil-a-brief-tutorial-on

it seems like it just changes the melody in all ways and is very very high pitched.
I cant tell at all what kind of sound(bass) he is using for the drop.
I would like help with aking these kind of "gliding" basslines.

I use ableton with massive, for your information.

A good drop is all about dynamics imo. You want the main part of your track to really pound if u know what I mean! A trick that I tend to use too often perhaps is to automate a high pass right before the track drops so you really feel the bass when the main part comes.

Also, you want to hype your audience a bit with something. Perhaps a snare roll that increases in volume combined with a white noise raise effect!

Thats some stuff I tend to do at least, hope it helped you out in any way ^^

^^ This and in the intro you hear no low sounds, and u see just before the drop, you only got that voice sample, all the other elements are gone. That makes the impact of the drop bigger imo.

Okay thanks!
But can someone specify witch kind of "after drop bass" is normally used?
And especially this Brief introduction one!

Im writing like a really retarded person.
What i meant is; Can someone analyze how this bass was made or just what you can hear in it?
