WELCOME IN THE STUDIO

In this section you can find things that will assist you in your own computer-based musical productions. There's a lot of original Dubroom material which you can use, but also third party material. There's much more than "just" sampled material, as you can find some little pieces of software, presets and other things as well. Everything in this section is, like all stuff in the Dubroom by the way, legal and -a lot of times- absolutely free of charge. Definitely worth a visit, for novice to veteran.

General Midi Drum List BPM - Delay Times List

ABOUT CHAPTER 13

In the previous chapter, we've set up the sequencer so that we can create a basic Reggae Riddim. 10 Channels have been assigned to 10 standard instruments. 

DISCLAIMER

Regardless as to whether you program or play the music, it will allways be a manner of creativety and inspiration as well as a couple of talents. But you probably know that allready, when you came this far. 

MAKING DUB WITH COMPUTERS - CHAPTER 14: MIDI (5) - PREPARING THE RIDDIM CREATION

In the first parts of this tutorial, we have been playing in the sequencer allready. We've been dealing with the different rhythms of the drums et cetera. So it can be assumed, that you have some basic knowledge allready about your sequencer. 

Your sequencer can most likely play loops. You select a start and an end point, and the sequencer will play the midi data in these measures. Let's make our sequencer play a two measure loop.

The sequencer will be able to record the notes that you play through an external keyboard, and it will have a "Piano Roll" from where you can easily program midi data as well. Most people will find, that a combination of programming and playing is the best.

There are also those who think that programming is not "political correct". This is nonsens. A lot of music is programmed. Programming a good riddim is just as much a form of art as playing it. 

In this tutorial, we will not make much differentiation between programming and playing. As we go through the next chapters, you will find that the tips can be applied either way.

It's time to start creating the riddim.

The first thing we have to do, is filling the two measures which we have assigned our sequencer to loop. We must create a basic drum rhythm, a bassline and the chords in the riddim section.

Let's do it!
