    Hi all working on a Dubstep/Drum & Bass track right now for my free album... I have a problem here, I already added pads, atmos, a pretty long white noise sweep with reverb and delay added on the drop but it still sounds kinda quiet... any help to make it sounds crowded?

    ambient fx, drum fillers with hats and cymbals and stuff like that, a fat bassline (not too loud though) to fill up the low freqs could also work, good luck mate.

    Also try some constant white noise, with chorus added, low volume, hi passed and sidechained to the kick!

    a good one is a riser>bar/half bar silent>drop contain a 16 bar white noise desender... verbs and sample delay and all that also work well... percussion like clicks, bongos the odd hat or 2 on a off beat etc.... crushed breaks too

    Convolution reverbs can fill out a lot of space.
