Authors' Notes

Here's my dubstep(ish) interpretation of Heart or Soul by Mick Rippon.

Big thanks to Mick for this great song!

Enjoy! :)

first impression: wow, this is great, cool sounds ... more later

Atmosphere of this remix is really worth of a medal.

Wooo big production sound, very nice. I like the little glitch tricks in the melody, really makes things interesting.
Tight drum beats, great variations moving the song right along.
I like the double melody take at 4:00+, cool sound.
Overall I enjoyed it a lot, nice work Knetter!

I'm embarrassed to say I had to google what dubstep is :-) Anyway whatever the genre, I like the sound of it. At 1:49 it reminds me of some of that keith303 nastiness. It's a feather in the cap for trackers the sound you guys manage to get out of Renoise. Keep it up!

P.S. After hearing Mick Rippon's 'The Knetter' and now this, looks like you two make quite a formidable duo! Maybe you should do a collab?

this is definitely my #1 this round. Just like so many aspects of this song: melody interpretation / rythm, instrumentation, dsp sounds, mix (though I couldn't look at the details because of total hardware crash). Awesome job !

@all: Big thanks for the comments - really appreciate it!
@Steve: Actually I don't know what it is either Steve! Last weekend I went to a dubstep party and that was slightly different: BPM around 140 - 160, more rests in the beat and the rythm is typically lead by the whowhohwowiwiwiwiwiwiwhwhowhowhowho-wo basses (I like it!!!). You can dance but also drastically nod your head back and forth and (s)train your neck ;)

@Airmann, thanks! I used some of your distortion layering idea of last round ;)

Oh I think I'll have a closer look at XRNS when my systems are up again.
..... But I see: S03 ... :-).. Yeah this dsp chain really makes a nice sound. Ah you used a resonating lowshelve instead of the bandpass. Also cool !
Nice to see that we manage to learn from each other :-)

I looove the wowowoow ;-). Will still work on that.

Woah. Nice production! (I've gotta study how you got that sinewavey bassline so tight).

Accurate and very faithful to the original as well as being very you.

There's really not much to say about this. I was absolutely engaged, completely sensitive to all the subtle changes and devices used. Respected all of it. The mix was devine and transparent (as well as artistic)..

I enjoyed the 'knetter' textures. Some of your technical ideas I wished were in the original.
