This beat is dope. Didn't expect to see music this complex using reason

Thanks, I really appreciate that :D.

Nice job! Is that a Thor with the wobbles and growls? Still on the list, learning how to make this sounds. But first finish some songs, and totally master the Subtractor.

Yeah, the growl/wobble is made using Thor. I used 5 thors (1 modulator 4 operators) and then ran 2 parallel's of it as well. The other FM bass is Thor (6 this time) done in a similar way with I think 2 parallel too.

The lead during the intro is factory combinators. A factory dulcimer with 2 parallel's, factory VOX, and factory strings. Then had a Thor pad I made behind it with a factory string I edited behind it to beef up the pad.

Oh sub-bass is Thor as well. I use Thor for everything these days. Any non factory preset synths I made using thors I think.

Definitely like the sounds, i certainly am not good (yet) creating my own sounds with Thor.

What about the drums? On sound cloud, several of your dub step or bro step ideas have a similar drum kit sound. Is that a factory bank?

Great work man melodies are wiked, wobbles are cool too!

Yeah Yeah very nice work!!! Big tune. I use thor a lot also. Can get some really big sounds from it. By the way i love the title of the song. You must be a "Game of thrones" follower.

It's well composed, but the dynamics are not very good at all. As you can see on the convenient little Soundcloud sound wave image, it's just a big thick line. That's how you know the dynamics are screwed up. Here's a video on dynamics and loudness: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcKDMBuGodU

Not necessarily. Here's a Skrillex piece with 740,000 plays on Soundcloud, and the middle section is a "big thick line". Sometimes, the weaving of the different instruments that are heavily compressed and maximized leaves you with a big thick line but with lots of dynamics, especially if the bass is smooth instead of choppy. In the OP song, the intro is a big thick line, but the wobble part is quite dynamic.
