No way. I've tried both and Transmission just doesn't do it for me. There's something to be said about too simple, especially when you're seeding 250 torrents at the same time.

i use both, what.cd doesnt like transmission,some torrents that dont work with azureus work with transmission though, torrents on macs are kinda picky(gay)

i still havent figured out the controls though, like i want to remove a torrent from my list without deleting the actual focking data

also, slink, ive been seeding like 20 torrents nonstop and my upped is still only like 12mb

For the next week any unique torrent that's uploaded is freeleech for 6 hours. That means that it doesn't count towards your download but when other people download it off of you you get upload ratio. Try to click on the torrents button on the top to see the new torrents that have been uploaded. Download a few that say freeleech and you should get some upload stats.

In a few days they're going to do a site wide freeleech on everything. That'll be a good time to build up your collection and get good seeding on your torrents. You'll get there. Never fear.

True, torrents on mac are hit and miss. For me, nothing comes close to how will utorrent performs on windows. I used to use azureus but I switched to transmission for good once they added selective downloading. I also have trouble with uploading what.cd torrents, but it might just be my router that's set up wrong. Good to know about the freeleech coming up.

Yeah, that's called a "Wobble Bass" in the association of the Dubstep genre. Here's a link on how to get started using Massive:

Drop the Lime did not popularize this into techno. It was producers like DZ from Toronto, and Benga that produce these Bass Synths using soft synths. And I'm assuming that "Alice" Remix he did is what got you interested in that bass.

Cool man, thanks!

I just like that wobble bass style in general. Drop the lime is the one artist I thought would be the most popular here.

I'm having some trouble with mapping the rate to my keyboard now... Once I make the LFO have a sync'd rate, it won't let me control the rate. I want to be able to change the rate on the fly as i record but keep it sync'd.

Any ideas? Would this be easier in Predator or any other synth?

It's a little more difficult pulling off the Wobble Bass on Rob Papen's Predator but when you pull it off, the reward is fucken tits man. It can produce these wide and heavy bass wobbles that'll dominate the track. No lead synths necessary, just bass.

I can probably help you out with the sync'ing but it depends on your DAW. And here's another link on how to get that bass going. It works in general with most Subtracitive Synthesis software: http://www.dubstepforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=780&start=15

It's all about assigning the LFO of your synth to change when you adjust a certain parameter. For example you can set the lfo to change rate when you move the pitch bend on your keyboard. Higher pitch makes it go faster and vice versa.

You can also take a bassline and double it up and then pitch one up or down a little bit. The offtime phase cancellation will cause the sound to wobble. Also the speed of the wobble will increase or decrease depending on which note you hit next.

Trouble & Bass are pretty dope but I guess they're names haven't really been brought up in these forums.

I'm trying this in predator now as i can sync and control with my keyboard at the same time... I can't seem to get the 'wahh' effect going with my envelope though. I set the envelope amount to 100% and and it doesn't sound like the envelope is working on the cutoff as it's supposed to. Should I be using the filter envelope or the free envelope and assign that to the cutoff freq? It doesn't seem like either are working in my favour right now... haha.

I appreciate all your help so far! I can't wait to use this heavy wobble

How do I make a "negative envelope" with ableton?
When I want to automate the pan slider of my arturia arp 2600v, then when I want it to go to the right, I need a negative envelope?
First time I face a "negative envelope" problem...

Could someone be so kind as to send me a link or tell me an easy/reliable place to get a cracked DAW. Anything really will do, I just want to start playing around a bit.

(in a message) Thanks

Man just have a look on the thepiratebay.org, H33t.com, etc.
Obviously you can't get pro tools, but FL8 XXL, Reason or Ableton are all cracked. If you have trouble send me a message.

Downloading the torrent posted by "PlanetMaster".

Seems to have the most seeds so I assume it's legit, thanks.
