    Just uploaded another preview (the last for the next months) of the Track "The Rapist"

    I just wanted to know, how you like the sounds. Was lots of work.

    Please give me some feedback on the sounds starting at 0:27

    Cheers Quartus

    I almost never give feedback to dubstep!
    it's too obvious you're using phasing into that sound, also too much resonance is involved here
    also it's obvious that it's a very good sound ;)

    Cheers mate.
    This is actually no phaser.

    I made this sound with reason and used a Scream distortion. On the left side of the distortion is a section called body.
    I recorded live this "phase-effect" with the knob called auto.
    Got no idea what that section does, but it fits for my taste :)

    BTW: That are 4 different synths :)

    Tape and Tube distortions on Scream 4 most of the time cause phasing effects when adding these as a send or in diff channels.
    So, by this, never put the same kick into the scream and a clean kick in another channel... the kick will dissapear because of phase inversion.

    But anyway, it's still a cool sound, now it's even cooler that you used (and told us) different things to make that self made phasing effect.

    Bass is big Mr Saul. I'm sure you'll get the levels good and tune will be great.

    Thanks alot subprime.

    I pushed the drums up and worked a bit on it.
    It got a few new parts now.

    But I want you to listen to 2:03 and 2:43. If kids hear this song, the will get a lection. I choose that sample, because I'm totally in love with alfred hitchcock movies.

    New version

    Dude, the intro is fucking awesome (rock). Also, very good harmony between the drums and the theme melody. I just think that you could have added a more distinctive bassline but the track is still banging! Good work, man :)

    nice track man!! very heavy.. stomach churning bass.

    personally think the bass sounds too bitcrushed and doesnt pertain enough of its original strength (like too much distortion for me makes the sound less solid)... also i think the vocal samples could be molded better with the tune (reverb and timing)
