Default Producing Electronic Music

I've been producing dubstep and edm (electronic dance music) for a while (I'll put some stuff online in a bit) and I'm just wondering what programs you use, tricks you use and what styles you produce. I use logic, and mostly EXS, ES2, Absynth and Omnisphere for synths.

Fl Studio 8. Great program with great drum roll and beatmaker built in. I find if its not enough for you as a program your doing something wrong. Protools make things sound to perfect imho.

Never tried using FL. What sort of music do you produce?

FL Studio 9 is way better. I tried switching from 7 to 8 once 8 came out, but I just couldn't get used to it. When 9 came out I started using it and it was perfect

I'm going through a minim and dub techno phase and have been pretty much using Native Instruments Maschine exclusively for the last few year. Its a n awesome piece of kit.

i don't really know what kind of electronic music i make, but i use FL Studio 9, Native Instruments Komplete 7, and Reason 5. the beauty is that if your CPU can handle it, you can run the two latter programs within fl studio.

fl studio is a giant. all it requires is a better audio recording interface (recording into edison is pretty much a joke).

I want to get started on making dubstep but i can't find the right sounds for it. I've tried Mixcraft 5 and FL Studio 8, and have no idea how to use Reason.

It has less to do with the host program and more to do with the synths, sounds, and plugins you use and how you use them.
From my understanding, a lot of folks make Dubstep with both FL, and Reason. Reason will probably have everything you need. Here's a decent enough resource for host-specific video tutorials:

Boy in a Band » Reason 4 Tutorials

Just scroll down that list. There's a Dubstep tutorial that might help you get started in Reason.

Thanks, I'll check that out. I think the problem I've been having is that I've been looking for the sort of 'wobble bass' that Flux Pavillion uses in Night Goes On, but when i use LFO's on FL 8 it just kind of sucks. I tried using a VST (Aliensynth or something along those lines), but I don't know if I can manipulate it all besides change the attack and other simple stuff like that.
