Only thing I can think of is, if you are able to get an sound engineer in with you, just watch carefully what he does. And learn the basics, don't try fucking around with all the effects and stuff before you know how it all works
Good stuff man!!!
Gonna be hearing some Klusta dubs on FDZ then yeah?
I would say start with the breaks n beats as well; as that (IMO!!) is the most important part of a D+B tune.
After all you can have a tune with a big, fat beat and a sub and it will rock the floor and get peeps jumping but if a tune has loadsa sick synths, reeses, sound fxs etc (no matter how fat and sick the synths are) if the beat is weak the tune will sound depthless and flat.
I wanna hear your tune!!! Finish it!!! ( in a mortal combat stylee!!)
