    You really should just go to youtube dude. There's step by step guides for everything on there, even how to wipe your own arse if you searched hard enough!

    What motive would anyone have to write a beat, then hand it over to you?

    snare and hats are to fast to pick up what they are doing. the technique of the dnb beat is what im trying to get down. im just listening to music and trying to get a better feel for what i want to make. illl get it, its just a lot different then a house beat :)

    It's not only knowing where to put em, but the dynamics of them is important too. Sometimes (depending on what software you use) the hi hat/cymbals/precussion is slightly muted to get a dynmaic feel to it by itself, but I try not to let that happen because it gives it a better feel if you can get the dynamics right in addition to what the software is doing. This takes quite a bit of practise but gives you good results if you do it right.
    If you find some good production vid's on youtube, post 'em here, I'm sure poeple will be appreciative!
    Thanks

    Seriously, how can someone go from asking how to write a basic DnB beat, to writing a remix that has a quadrillion comments on it in under 1 week??

    I must be doing something drastically wrong!

    he must be famous or something and we must be so fucking underground and we still don't know about it.

    so being underground is not even having a clue about who's on the high spheres? lol...

    in his myspace

    man we must be doing something really really wrong... the key are the remixes imo...
