Many DubStep producers use Fruity Loops and download drum sounds from Distance (a producer).

I found a tutorial online and made my own. It was pretty easy and after I made several different kinds of beats I would just import the drum rack from the ableton session into another one. Between the compression, verb ect. it take a little bit to set up, but not hard at all. I think my bpm was 144 and I used the click to time it. It was a lot of fun making them! You should try and you might learn something and have fun in the process. If you use samples you might have issues later mixing with the verb on the drums and compression unless you want to tailor everything else around the loop, but still kind of leaves you stuck. Just my opinion. I tend to only mesh up sample tops and cut them up sometimes switching around stuff as one element or ambient drone.

Vengeance has some great kicks and snares I use when making mine.

pretty much, a large portion of dub producers and even house/electro producers use drums from vengeance-sounds

In answer to the 'dirty bass' part, I think a lot of the dubstep producers use Massive by Native Instruments and maybe some of the Rob Papen stuff, but you should check out some youtube tutorials. There are tons of them! It's really about the techniques more than the equipment. What do you have at the moment?

You want to make dubstep? Practice practice practice. Second step, learn how to use message boards, people get pretty burned out seeing the same "how do I" threads, the search function is your friend. Don't post a new thread until you're sure that your question hasn't been asked 400,000 times. Otherwise all you get is snarky answers. Dig around for freeware or cheap stuff to start out with, pro gear won't give you pro results without pro skills. A basic sampler, sequencer, and synth will keep you busy for a long time, once you are familiar with the concepts and start to realize what your setup lacks, then you'll have a better idea of what you need. Practice practice practice, and watch a lot of tutorials, and check ones out even if they aren't for your particular software/harware, because the important thing to learn is the concepts, not the position of the knobs. And be patient, I sucked a lot for a long time (still do, I just don't have the amount of time I would like), but I can tell you I'm a lot better than when I started. You won't be an overnight superstar.

Vengeance samples +
Massive +
Fm8 +
Ohmicide +
Melodyne +
Ableton Live

Rusko:
Sony Acid (lol)
Vengeance

Seriously have you even googled dubstep tutorials before? You need to learn a lot more before you can make some music

In brostep yopu can pretty much use whatever. I have never heard any good drums in brostep, its mostly weak shit. And thats because they have other elements that they want to maintain focus on. Just get any famous and good general purpose synth and you'll be set.

You can start out with free synths like synth1 (not very advanced but still good) and oatmeal and such. Search kvraudio for the best free synths (the highest rated ones).

Good luck, we all gotta start somewhere and I recommend synth1 as a good starting point.

Find a regular drum kit you like, pitch down the drums, add a little reverb, overdrive or echo.
