    Hi,

    right now im trying to make dnb for quite a while now...
    i started with the drums and i think my drums sound after a long time of try and error quite good

    but evertime i try to move on to a bassline i fail o_O

    i just dont know what i'm missing

    i attached a beat of mine and a kind of reecy bassline i made to chop up and re arange

    here is a 4 bar loop with sub i made

    and here a unchopped bass

    How long is a while? Them drums sound fine and the sub is good. That reece is pretty sick, listen to some spor and see what they do with the bass.

    drums are good, the first bass is weighty .... just need some mid-range growls .... some fx and your tune is good to go.... the second bassline is really quite sick. you just need to throw a load of sounds together ....... you just gotta find a nice groove!

    I think i started about 2-3 years ago with producing music...but at first not really dnb

    yeah the nice groove is kind of my problem but i'll think it is just more try and error .... o_O

    thanks so far guys

    The most crucial thing I ever did with production was commit myself to finishing tunes. It really helps to go through the whole process over and over. It's really rewarding in the end.
