Mechsteppa - No Masters. by It's Neuroscience published on 2011/02/13 22:08:35 +0000 I NEED YOUR SUPPORT!!! Mechsteppa - No Masters http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/no-masters/id420464136?i=420464197 What is Hardstep? Hardstep is an attempt to resurrect the lost genre of "Hard Trance" by bringing back the distorted, piercing, and straight-up robotic leads/harmonies with the heavy-hitting of Dubstep beats and wobble-basslines. I'd like to help grow this sub-sub-sub genre and start producing my own, how do I? Great question! :-) To produce Hardstep, you're going to either need a knowledge of the following things, or a urning to learn: 1) Synthesizer creation 2) Sound effect design (Robotic or clean powerful electronic sound effects, to be specific) 3) Knowledge of "stereo enhancement" (i.e. dimension expansion for sounds and leads) 4) Experience with Dubstep beats 5) Distorted, hard-hitting punch kicks and snares 6) A knowledge of music theory for suspenseful and powerful leads. 7) A tempo of 140bpm (same as Dubstep and old Hard Trance) 7) The ability to have some f***ing fun with this %#!^ Bigup to all my followers! Sorry I haven't put out this track in a long time...been heavily loaded with classes. However, the more support I receiving from you guys (spending a buck and buying the tune), the more I'll be able to make. Of course, doing so would help spread the sub-sub-sub genre of Hardstep. It's never to big, never to large, never to powerful. Not with Hardstep. Let your imagination run wild. BIG, WIDE, AND POWERFUL. THIS IS HARDSTEP.
