DUBROOM 808 DRUM LOOPS VOLUME 2

The second episode in our presentation of Reggae Loops created with the the TR808 Drum Machine Sounds contains just one rhythm. It's a 121 BPM One Drop and contains 28 different loops. There are several different variation in the rhyhm, four different fills and several loops with a crash cymbal hit.

The One Drop is ideal for some heavy roots sounds, even when they are created with the TR 808 sounds. Especially by making your own sequence of the loops, you can create some pretty complicated but solid rhythms. Usually there is only "one drop" of the bassdrum in every measure, on the third count, which brings this solidness. But the creative hi hat pattern and several variations make it also interesting for those with an ear for detail. That's the power of the One Drop and it shows especially in heavy DUB.

The loops are constructed in such a way, that you can easily copy any loop after any loop. You can even use software like Cool Edit and simple "open append" the loops you want in order to get a nice drum track.

Beware, though. Although the loops are all 4 to 8 measure long, they do not actually start on the first measure. This becomes clear, when you listen to the introduction roll. So start with the introduction roll, and listen closely. When you count the measure in blocks of 8 measure, know that the loops start with the "last measure" and then continues with the first seven (or three) measures.  The reason why this is done, is so that all loops can follow eachother easy. For in every measure, there is some decay of the hand clap from the previous one. This is also the reason why you hear the "click" at the start of every measure. When you copy/paste them in a sequence, this click is gone.
