Dubstep and Drum 'n Bass track

Do any of you guys make drum 'n bass or dubstep with your SIDs?

In my recent experience, I have found that having an 8580 is crucial to these types of basslines. yea yea, I know 6581 is the "grittier" little bugger, but it fails at pushing sub-end and juicy filter action. With mixing waveforms on the 8580, I can regain loads more grit from something like pulse+saw...

With that all said, I hope you find this track to give you inspiration to bring out the filth in your SID. smile  Dub n' Bass   It isn't really done yet, mostly due to the fact I haven't installed my second SID in my 8580 machine. Also it will eventually be lots longer.. Still trying to tweak my kick to get it a little clearer in the mix, but my snare is just where I want it.

Tell me what you think, and show me your Drum 'n Bass!

Re: Dubstep and Drum 'n Bass track

nice, i like the sound of your bass there. i use 2x 6581 sids, deffinately grittier, thinking of maybe getting a 88580 set up too. i mostly write techno/gabber with the c64 but have flirted about with dnb etc too. check out my soundcloud....  <-- arcade :-)

Very nice bass, I like! I must also learn how to make better instruments.. smile

I had first both 8580 and 6581 sid chips on my C64, but I removed 6581 chip and put two 8580 sid chips. I like 8580 filters more than 6581 and now they also sounds similar..

electriclifeform, you have also very nice tracks there smile
