Once I started getting into producing dubstep and other varieties of EDM (house, drum & bass, etc.) I stumbled upon this massively definitive program called Dub Turbo. This program is an all-star if you’re looking to take the same path that I have and create dubstep without a ton of music producing experience. I’ve been doing this for a little over a year now, but previously I had little to no experience in the industry. What sets Dub Turbo apart from other production programs and dubstep software is that it was created specifically for dubstep music. Now I’ve spent a number of hours testing other programs and created several tracks with some of the bigger names, but the end result was usually the same. They were either huge time wasters or they just couldn’t handle the quality of music I wanted to create. Time and time again this all-star dubstep software stood above the rest as the one which outshined the rest.
Back in January when I first discovered Dub Turbo, I was really looking for something without a huge price tag and could prove to have better quality than the competition. I needed to find something that wasn’t made to just produce simple loops, regardless if it was filthy and full of wobbles. What I found was that it was simple to create a complex and well-produced song in a very short amount of time. In fact, their website boasts that you can create a song in as little as 10 minutes.
First of all, the most attractive attribute for Dub Turbo is simply the price tag. What you get for around $30 bucks is just downright impressive. Actual music production software for under $50 is almost unheard of. But to get something that is top shelf quality for that price with download capability and all the features you need is f#$&*ing ridiculous.
How to Make Dubstep
As an instant download, you can literally be reading this one minute and then next be setup and producing right from your desk. If you’re serious about getting started, then you can jump right away into intense track producing as quickly as you can surf over to their site.
Learning to use the software is a breeze, there are tons of videos and the easy to use menus won’t cause you to pull out your hair (unheard of for producing software). One of the main selling points though for this dubstep software? You don’t need turntables to use it, DJ equipment, or expensive wallet-breaking hardware to make dubstep.
After heading over to the Dub Turbo site, you can tell right off the bat that they aren’t your average software company. They offer top notch graphics, videos, and information on their site. You can guess that the quality of the software will match the feel of the site. As you click the purchase option you are forwarded to a site known as Clickbank, a well-known and reputable company which sells a ton of other programs and software. As a previous customer of theirs in the past, I’ve come to know their name in the online world. They’ve been around for over 10 years so I had no problem purchasing from them again. As you complete your purchase you have an option of upgrading to a VIP package, which I opted to pick-up since I wanted a full array of features for my arsenal. There’s also a pretty legit bonus which guides you through selling your dubstep tracks if that’s something you want to get into (I know I did).
The link they send you to download your purchase is fast and I was fully set up in just a few minutes. It really is that easy to do. You’ll immediately notice that the software is smooth and simple to navigate. After watching just a few videos, I actually had a track setup within 15 minutes of starting it. Mind you, I have a basic understanding of music production software, but Dub Turbo really is that easy. Another cool feature which I didn’t learn about until after reading up on their website is that you can access it both online and offline. So if you happen to be at a remote computer or friend’s place, you can hop on and create some dubstep anytime.
Personally, I’ve never used the tech support at Dub Turbo, but a friend of mine has once or twice and noted that they have been quite helpful and responsive. Everything I’ve read in terms of reviews for their tech support all state that they handle their customers well.
Hopefully this review gives you a great starting point for your new venture into producing dubstep. I honestly feel that Dub Turbo is the best dubstep software you can buy for your money right now. If you’re looking to getting into the scene and start smashing out new tracks then head over to Dub Turbo’s site. It’s worth far beyond what you pay for it and to be honest I wouldn’t be surprised if they doubled or tripled the price in the near future since they released version 2.0.
