    So this is my second go at producing Dnb and have managed to make a nice beat and bassline. But now i'm stuck and I have no clue what other synths or stuff to add. Anyone please give me some help and some advice on what I should add?

    Here's the bit iv'e made so far:

    To be honest, its going to have to be a stylistic choice you make. I usually have a general idea for what i want as a sound (single plucked lead, sidechained pad lead, arppegio'd lead) and just cycle until i find a good preset, then fiddle with the vst until it is interesting and unique enough.

    If you don't have many vst's yet, or can't find something you like, just start with a basic delayed/reverb piano. Figure out notes/beat/pattern for your melody. You can always switch the instrument if it doesn't fit.

    Try a higher octave for the piano and throw in some pads.
