Yup, same here. :t:

A lot of the darker more aggressive dubstep bass lines use exactly the same techniques as Neuro. Mangling Reeses, frequency splitting, resampling, heavily automated FM synthesis etc etc. A good way to start is to assign a few of your synth parameters to your midi controllers encoders, write a simple riff and then go wild with automating the parameters you've assigned. Bounce that down as an audio file, chop it up and start processing the different "chops" accordingly...

It's funny how complicated we all think it is when we first start out. The ultimate super secret key to those sounds (at least when you first hear them) is how they're being modulated/chopped/mangled. Getting a thick moving sound actually isn't all that hard...it's the arrangement/composition of all the "best parts" of your original sound, which of course can depend on the timbre, movement/filter modulations added etc BEFORE you decided to chop the sound. Puzzlefactory pretty much nailed it on the head:

Write a SIMPLE riff, automate the HELL out of it, bounce, chop and arrange cleverly. That's it. Repeat the hell out of that statement after creating your reese and it will all start to fall into place. Then in the round about comprehension, you realize that the type/timbre of reese you create, amount of distortion/processing (including on what type of band, a la freq splitting) will all play a role when you get to the arrangement of the chops in the composition of the bassline. Automating bandpass filters on a square wave based reese seems to have more delicate crunch to it, rather than saw waves. However, saw waves seem to be much more warm in the mid-lows...These aren't hard and fast comparisons, just what I've noticed...however I know it DOES depend on how you process them too.

Melamin and Wicked Sway collabs are the best neuro dub out in my opinion. Some of my most favorite sounds and compositions come from them. Top 5 influential producers. Unfortunately they dont make music together anymore and their individual music sounds nothing like their collabs.
