Forum Information

Dear users, I have decided to phase out the posting on the forums on this website and move any discussions over to this private facebook group. While the forums were great 10 years ago, they are now difficult to maintain due to constant spam. I spend most of my time just cleaning them up, rather than interacting. This, combined with finding it difficult to directly communicate with other users through several different social media platforms, I have decided to consolodate it all to one group where people can chat with me, ask questions and jibber jabber with other users on a regular basis. I will not make the forums offline as there is a wealth of content, but posting has now been disabled. Thanks to all those who have contributed over the years, and I'll see you over on the Facebook group! -Tom

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 10 - Robopoke

Updated on 21 February 2014

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 11 - Tramp

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • Exploring the realm of making a sound come from different directions, we creat a heavy, clunky kick in the nuts that jumps around from all directions

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 12 - Sore

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • A very rich sharp sound with the emphasis on the stuff higher up the frequency range rather than down the bottom - think of an old wooden door creaking.

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 13 - Greg

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • Greg's alright. He sounds like a piece of paper being shaken around furiously, under water (if that's possible)

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 14 - Wubble

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • This one's also about the wub, but with more of a focus on changing the wub speed very fast, and distorting it juuuuuuuust riiiiiight

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 15 - Dickhead

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • A totally different approach here - we record our voice trying to sing a dubstep bassline, then use a vocoder to actually make us sound super cool.

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 16 - Carnie

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • Another silly one - This one is about silly fast wobbles at humorous intervals, more of a compliment to bring out the best in the dirtier, darker basslines

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 17 - Fazed

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • Hold your hand up out flat in front of you, staring at your open palm, then blow towards it (trust me) while bringing your open palm towards your mouth. Hear that? We do that, but with bass.

Updated on 21 February 2014

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 3 - Dr Wub

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • Most tutorials aim for this type of wobbley sound but don't often hit it, so I've made my version showing how to get the maximum wub in the simplest way

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 4 - Chiponk

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • Like the Dr. but with more of a sharp stab to it, this guy hits hard and fast, yet dissapears quickly in style. This is made for lots of fast little notes rather than a long wobble.

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • We start exploring the world of harmonics and overtones, the foundation of pretty much everything you hear.

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • Harm's bigger brother, we look at how raising the level of harmonics can beef up the fundemental bassnote.

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 8 - Dippy

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • The sound someone makes when they pull off a perfect cannon ball dive into a pool, followed by the worlds largest zipper being undone.

Dubstep Glitchop Power Course Part 9 - Velociraptor

Updated on 21 February 2014

  • The velocity doesn't have to change the volume of a sound, we assign it to heaps of shit and see how we can make this beast scream!
