    I just can't figure out how to get this very dark, " Factory " kind of atmospheric sound, and mood to a DnB song, I've been screwing around with Albino (only synth I have for now lol.) for ages to get that type of sound, but just cannot seem to achieve it.

    I mean ambience stuff like these things:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5sVgs1qaWs ( Ekol - Dystopia )
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQdcfvfMMUA (Corrupt Souls - Trioxin 245)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hIh7IdaBpk (Ghosthack - Nanotexh) (this actually is dubstep, but it implies the mood/atmosphere I am trying to achieve. )

    Could anyone give me a few hints on this?

    (Just for the Note; I work with Renoise.)

    You could try to hunt some ambient samples for start and see how they've been built, try to figure out how they are constructed. There's usually tons of reverb, some dischord and atonal content like samples of metal being dragged on concrete floors and stuff. Try to find Psitech's atmospheric samples somewhere, they're a good place to start.

    Thanks, I'll look up some samples and take a close listen and stuff, and then I'll give another attempt on it in albino ;3

    also, i suppose you meant these Samples? http://www.filefront.com/user/luthatron
    This is what I got with a quick google search for "Psitech Atmospheric Samples"

    Yeah i think they might be there somewhere. In fact I can't find the package I first meant anywhere now but psitech has got good samples, atmospherics or not.

    get any sound. Add chorus, put it at max mod max rate, split freqs, add disto to the low freqs, get all of this into a reverb.
    Put reverb into kick + low automated/pitched cymbals, try it

    btw I can tell Ekol to join this forum and answer this himself, I'm glad to see how he's getting so big in very few time being just 14 y-o. He's just been producing like 1 year; awesome guy for sure. ;)
