ADSR Sounds has launched Bass Science, a video course by Dr Hobo in which you can learn how to make dubstep growls, wobs and drops in Native Instruments Massive.
This bumper patch and tutorial package is most certainly NOT for the faint hearted! Every patch is designed with those heavy growling drops and wobs in mind. Fired up with the very hardest of dubstep bass in the style of Skrillex, Datsik, Excision, Zed’s Dead, Kill the Noise, Ajapai and more, Bass Science’s 75 pure dubstep patches are all locked, loaded and ready to go with the full 8 macros, allowing you to create hundreds of different sounds from each patch with just a few minor adjustments.
With over 2 hours of video tutorials showing you how to get the very best out of each patch, 7 brand new and innovative techniques for creating the darkest drops and wobs around, and extensive video tutoring on external effects processing, frequency splitting, chaining, and midi modulation, Bass Science makes an essential contribution to both your musical arsenal and your theoretical knowledge.
The course is available to purchase for $37 USD.

Incident has posted a video of a live performance with the gTar app-enabled smart guitar in Ableton Live.
Are you curious to see some more technical capabilities of the gTar? We’ve made this video to demo some of the versatility the our Ableton Remote Scripts and the gTar’s ability to track note input!
First, we highlight the different functionalities of the gTar when it is paired with Live via these scripts. Then we show you how easy it is to toggle between and play different instruments using only the gTar. Finally, we use one of the patches and some other clips (all of which except for the drums were recorded using the gTar) to create a short improvisational performance.
The Ableton Remote Scripts for gTar are available to download here.
The gTar is available to purchase for $399 USD.
