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.

MAKING DUB WITH COMPUTERS - THE END FOR NOW

You've reached the provisional end of this tutorial. It's still in it's unfinished phase as new chapters are added at any time. Could be today, tomorrow, next week or next month. 

In the meantime, join either the Dubroom Online mailing list or the Messian Dread mailing list to get a notification in your in-box whenever a new chapter is added. Or become a member of the Dubroom Message Boards and find out even more than just new chapters. For example, you can go straight to the Studio Dubroom forum and start commenting or asking questions that may be integrated in this tutorial as it is written. When you do not like to do such things publicly, you can always contact the Dubroom and send us an email.

I hope and trust that what is already in the tutorial has at least provided you with some knowledge and insight when it comes to creating (DUB) Reggae music. I am definitely not an expert on chords and mastering, but I do know a few things about Reggae and especially Dub and it is my pleasure to share the things I know with you. 

After all, it boils down to you and your creativity. You can learn how to play guitar and play from a book, but you can't do that with Dub mixing. You have to make a set up that you feel comfortable with, use as much or little layering of effects and instruments (submixes) as you want, and by doing so create your own sound. Always remember where Dub is comming from, even when you do not plan to make Dub the way it traditionally is made.

This tutorial is not the Bible, or the Gospel Truth. It is my personal view and insight. I first heard Dub in the early 1980's, it was predominantly UK Dub by Dennis Bovell (Linton Kwesie Johnson) and Mad Professor, plus Jamaican Dub by Scientist and Groucho Smykle (Black Uhuru's "The Dub Factor"). This is how I got to know and overstand Dub as the art and technique of remixing Reggae. 

I think that whatever you do or plan, regarding the original Dub foundations will always turn out fruitful. 

Look below for some video's of real Dub engineering.

One Love,
Messian Dread
