    And start making some tutorial videos?

    It's been something I've thought of doing for a while now, but been pretty reluctant as I've never done anything like it before.

    I mean, I like the sense of satisfaction it gives me when I know I've been able to help someone out, and I know Massive pretty much inside out now (not that thats all I would focus on!)

    My only drawback, is I dont have any screen recording software, or know much about anything when it comes to doing good, reliable tutorials.

    So, anyone have any pointers, software names (free if poss) suggestions for me? Should I go for it?

    Would be good to have someone doing massive tutorials that aren't all about how to make generic dubstep/dnb sounds.

    Yeah man! Some tuts from you would be sick! Even if they aren't relevant to me I'd still watch, I think it's cool to see how people go about making a track as there are so many different ways really.

    camtasia studio - its designed for making tutorials. got speech overlay - mouse pointer thingies.
    not sure how much it is as someone gave me a copy (ahem) pm me
    fraps - thats more for grabbing video from games - but i think thats free so yeah you could do that and wak it into movie maker - if you want to do it on the cheap.
    i would watch one of your tutorials man

    Something I've been missing is tuts that show you what to do in general, like.. Not just "open Massive etc. and connect this thing to that knob, tweak this fader here and then link the other thing to the sidechain and then womp womp womp!!" you know?

    Would be sick if you did some tuts.

    Camtasia is the dogs bollocks but it costs stupid amounts of money, if i remember rightly £500. Hypercam works aswell but i think the quality isnt great.

    Effects and automation tute would be awesome
    for those noobs like me who have only just figured out how to make some alright sounds in massive.

    i second fraps... although theres heaps of programs out now that do the same job within a quick google search

    tutorials relevant to d&b would be pretty sick. there are shit loads of tutorials on how to make a specific bass, but none on how to make your own basses in general, if you know what I mean? none of them explain what makes a good bass, the usual post-processing effects that goes into a bass, splitting frequencies etc etc.. I think those kind of tuts would be a lot better in the long run, otherwise you have the dubstep scene where everyone sounds like skrillex due to them being taught how to rip off his bass on youtube :p

    ^if u see it from a tutorial it isn't really your bass, is it :teeth:

    And Fletch, yes u should. More tutorials are never bad. Take us on a trip to the depths of Massive :D

    I meant more along the lines of a tutorial to teach someone how to come up with their own bass. Distance (the dubstep producer) did one and it was really helpful, i'd love to see more of those types of tutorials.

    Massive has been done to death man, there are millions and millions of tutorials on that software. If you know anything about Albino3, that's what I'd much rather see.

    I recently went and taught myself the basics of Albino just by going through and copying the Stuck Dirt preset by Noisia on there, step by step. Took ages but eventually got it with some new knowledge under my belt.

    You have already answered your own question. You already called your vet and his attitude over the phone was that "it's not a big deal."
