Producertech has released Dubstep Production Techniques by Dodge & Fuski, a new online course featuring a 2-part set of tutorials that guides you through the process of producing a Dubstep anthem, describing each of the elements in a track and how they’re combined and laid out to form a successful arrangement.
The first part of the course walks through brand new single ‘Killer Bees’, just released on Disciple Recordings, enabling you to listen to each part of the track individually and understand the reasons for including them and the treatment required to make them sit well in the mix. There’s also an analysis of the arrangement and a breakdown of each section, explaining the evolution of the track and how it was conceived.
The second set of tutorials applies all of these techniques and more into creating a basic Dubstep arrangement from scratch, including the laying out and processing of beats, creation of the bassline, sound design and application of FX layers and builds – which are woven together into a simple song structure. Although the tracks are made in Cubase, the techniques can be easily applied to any music making platform, so the course is suitable for anyone, regardless of DAW preference.
After signing up, the tutorials are available to watch immediately, along with a 150MB bonus download pack of Dubstep samples.
The course is available for purchase for £22.95 GBP.

Modartt has released version 5.1 of its Pianoteq virtual piano instrument for Windows and Mac.
Version 5.1 offers an improved binaural algorithm based on a new dummy head model, bringing a stunning three-dimensional sound experience.
The D4 Grand Piano is now slightly improved by re-voicing, bringing increased timbre dynamics to the bass range and more transparency to the medium range.
It is now possible to easily switch to an extended octave range of the D4 and K2 Grand Pianos and the KIViR collection of historical instruments.
The update is free for all Pianoteq 5 customers.
Modartt has also announced it has rebuilt the KIViR collection.
The KIViR project (Keyboard Instruments Virtual Restoration) addresses the case of historical keyboard music instruments present in museums worldwide. These instruments often cannot be played in a satisfactory way and need to come back to life again. In this project, we concentrate on string keyboard instruments such as pianos and harpsichords. A broader extension to other instrument categories might be considered in the future.
The KIViR collection of historical instruments now takes into account the refined physical model of Pianoteq 5, resulting in increase presence and clarity. The collection is free for all Pianoteq customers.
Furthermore, Modartt has launched its 3rd Pianoteq Video Contest, offering a chance to win up 400 euro in value coupons.
Show the world what you can do with Pianoteq 5 in front of the camera. At the same time, you will get a chance to win a value coupon of up to 400 EUR for purchasing Pianoteq products in our online store.
The deadline for submitting your video is November 8th, 2014.
