Ueberschall has released Dubstep Skillz, the latest product in the Vodovoz series, featuring ten professionally mixed and arranged tracks split into massive punchy beats and breaks, deep wobble- and distorted basses, pulsating synths, hitting space tones, robotic- and glitch vocals, SFX and warped textures.
Dubstep Skillz is inspired by various styles in dubstep like wobble, post-dubstep, brostep, tribal step, wonky and dank dub, that integrate elements from techno, electro house, drum n bass, tribal and reggae.
Dubstep Skillz contains 1.6 GB of sounds and loops in 10 construction kits. All beats are available as multi tracks, separated in bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and percussion loops for efficient mixing. The 1058 loops cover a range between 139 and 147 BPM with lengths between one and eight bars.
Each construction kit contains up to five sub-folders:
- No. 1 - Intro.
- No. 2 - Hook.
- No. 3 - Break Part.
- No. 4 - Hook-Variation.
- No. 5 - Outro.
Dubstep Skills hugely benefits from Ueberschall's Elastik-Player. This plug-in allows easy and fast creation of additional glitches, wobbles, filtering and cut-up-effects by sequencing sound parameters and using grain-loops. It's fast time-stretching with a range between 30 and 300 BPM allows matching of all loops to your DAW-tempo and easy creation of half- and doubling tempo-versions.
A clear folder structure combined with meaningful titles like "Keynote" and "Speed" makes navigation and loop combination within Dubstep Skillz and all other installed libraries easy. The central Loopeye view lets you focus on the loop. Edit samples in an Innovative and intuitive way by using functions such as resampling, formant, reverse and the powerful multimode-filter. Elastik allows host-automated modulation of start- and endpoints in a loop, resulting in creative manipulations while playing.
At the same time, zplane.development's élastique-pro-algorithm performs tempo matching with quality and low CPU load.
Elastik Player Formats: Windows and Mac OS X; VST, AU and RTAS.
