    I'm not totally feeling it. I mean, there's a deep sub bass in there, but it's very generic, and IMO, it wasn't HUGE like your thread title promised. It was a little weak.

    How to improve? Try changing up the bassline...the pattern was too simple.

    To make the track "HUGE", you need to process the hell outta that bass, so it really has some OOMPH behind it, not just a standard bass vibe-thing. Same with the kicks, put some thump in them.

    If this is your first tune, don't be disheartened at all. Never has a producer made an amazing "HUGE" track the first time they ever released a track. It takes practice just like almost every other musical ability. I personally was a "HUGE" bag of dicks.

    Yeah mate, if you wanna compete with these "dirty" sounding dubstep tunes that bass has to be a lot heavier. Saying that the melody is real nice, like the drum pattern too. Think if you work on the bassline, maybe drop it an octave? Add some effects, distortion etc, it could be a pretty decent tune.

    thanks for the tips mate. what plugins and stuff could i use on the bass though. i'm currently only using REAPER and made the bass in free TAL Elek7ro. know any good free effects and distortion plugins? Im fairly new to this production thing and I don't really want to spend much money :)

    The following links are from vst4free.com and to download them just click the little Windows logo at the top of the page. It'll download as a .zip file. They are legal to download, as they include links to the software company's website, where you can see for yourself that they are indeed free for everyone.

    Here's some links to distortion VSTs:

    http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?plugin=TriDirt&id=556

    Remember, there are links included to the publisher, so if you like their effect, go to their website - they usually have even more free FX.

    Example of one of those websites: http://www.delamancha.co.uk/freeware.htm (Download the Sumo effect plugin, I love it)

    Hope this helps, good luck!
