Nice to see you again. Thanks for backing me up too.
I think that, even though I'm new here, there should be a stickied thread titled "topics beaten to death, so please don't ask".
I do hate being the accidental nuisance.
As grooki mentioned, we get that question 10 times a week, and about 5 are trolls (regular forum members in guise, don't even ask why).
The question you have asked has been answered so many times in so many ways, from the heads themselves, you really should search it out here in the forum. The answers are there.
I actually did before posting.
Maybe I didn't enter the right terms, as I've searched "excision vsts", "datsik vsts", "plugins excision uses", "plugins datsik uses", and a couple others. Any good suggestions mate?
Do take some time to listen to other forms of dubstep, you may be quite surprised.
No offense to trance, but I think you're going to have to push your synth/processing skills if you want to make either those types of sounds, or sounds of that caliber.
Brostepforum may have some answers for you as well. Brostep is a nascent offshoot of dubstep, and really describes the sound you are after.
I've heard some other forms of dubstep and liked those as well, but actually, it's for that very reason of pushing the synth/processing skills I wanted to know how they did it. It is not so difficult for me to hear something and come up with, say, an easy-to-make reese bassline once you know what you're doing or a nice wobble wobble. Just imagine from a DJ standpoint of view a trance/dubstep piece where the build-up has these huge synths soaked in reverb (easy to make), and then instead of the "build up to nothing", it goes into the atypical phat Brostep sound (thanks for telling me that). Everybody would go nuts. Expanding my palette from making just trance stuff is what I'm after. It's easy to get big trance leads with Poizone->Karma FX Reverb set on (I think) mode 9.

I like you too!
I honestly don't think making this kind of sound is something you can accidentally make while messing around with some synths, you need to know or at least have a rough idea of what tools they're using and then taking it from there, form what I've seen and heard from the other 'datsik wobblez' posts I think it's mostly; distortion, bitcrushing, chorus, resampling, layering then resample again. and yes I always put the filter at the end of the fx chain.
See, a rough idea of what tools they're using.
That's all I was wanting to know. Well, that, and where to place that filter. Right at the end of the FX chain for you, and for Grooki, where it makes the most impact.
Frohmage would be so perfect for that (can add even more distortion with that thing). So, resampling. That's one I haven't considered reading about (and it's right there in the Production Bible!)
Well, gonna read that then.
oh and welcome to the production forum

And thanks for that too.
