    "I heard that Skrillex does his dubsteps in Ableton, the FM8 he uses every so often compared to other synths. Adjusting oscillator levels can be a bit intimidating at first with Ableton's interface, but the wide range of options and adjustments in my opinion can really create different rhythmic textures on your music. So yes it might take me long before I master doing my dubsteps here ehehe."

    "I create my beats OTG so and GarageBand provides me that convenience. It has a pretty straightforward interface and instruments for my use. I know I haven't fully utilized the potential of this app but trust me, the next Skrillex or Marshmello can come from here haha!"

    "I'm a fan of Marshmello's dubs tep drops so I'm glad that Dad bought me Logic Pro for my birthday. Since I'm trying a software for the first time to create beats, it took me about 2 hours just to finish a 30-second track. That's a learning experience for me already!"

    "Pro Tools' MIDI features enable me to create bg scores for our video commercial projects at school. My dad is a music producer in a local cinema production company and he's been using this software for his scores so I thought it would be convenient just to add plug ins for me to finally create dub step beats on my own."
