SOUND SYSTEM VOCALS PART 2: HORSEMAN (2)
DUBROOM SOFTWARE AND SOUNDWARE REVIEW
WWW, June 2014 - In Part One we had a short introduction to Horseman and his raw, heavyweight voice. We could even listen to a Dub carrying his voice taken straight from Sound System Vocals Parts One and Two. Now, in this review we will go much deeper as we'll take a look at just what the material brings for the producer of (DUB) Reggae Music.

Sound System Vocals Part Two is actually interchangeably connected with Part One. In fact, there is no real obvious reason for separate packages other than perhaps a financial one. So let's talk a little bit about that before we continue with our review of Sound System Vocals Parts One and Two. 

When you want to get yourself a Dub Plate or special for your sound or studio, you will pay around 250 Euros per track and when you want to use the vocals commercially you will pay even more than that. Purchasing Sound System Vocals parts One and Two, like the Dubroom did without apology, actually cost less than 20% of recording a Dub Plate and with that you have purchased a license to use the vocals in any way you like to, even commercially releasing your music. The only thing you can't do is re-distributing the package as such. So whatever the reason for you reading this review, you know what you are looking for and the price is more than reasonable. More, much more.

So, what can you do with about 500 dry and 550 effected Vocal sounds from Horseman? You could try and make a fifth of a Dub Plate... Or you could take a good listen and work a little bit or even hard and get yourself at several different full-length lyrical tunes. At least, when it comes to these lyrics. You'll have to create your own original music which is a true joy to do around a voice like that of Horseman's. 

He'll even give you directions.

How?

There are several hooks and choruses, offered in slightly different variations. Some are very familiar: "Long Time Me No DJ In The Dance", "Cool Runnings", to name just two. It is very, very tempting to construct your own Rub a Dub or Roots version of these well known riffs and hooks and there's no reason why you shouldn't do it, either. 

The hooks and choruses by far do not form the only stuff offered in the two-pack. There's a lot of shouts and short jingles, some of which you could have heard in previous chapters of Radio Dubroom. "Brand New", "Dub It", "Dis Ya Tune A Go Nice Up The Nation", et cetera. Perfect to introduce a next selection in your DJ set or simply at the start of your own production. 

And then there is that one thing which discerns part two from part one: thirty "VOX FX" and no these are not delays or reverbs, these are ad-libs that give a Roots vibe, or Rub a Dub, or even a bit Dancehall-ish. Presented in different tone-heights, but your average sampler will have no problem with that and since the packs come with presets for the most used soft samplers including Reason's NNXT, things are pretty much taken care of there.

It totally depends on what you actual intention is, but when you are a DJ looking for vocals to spice up your sets this will give you an instant library and when you are a producer looking for vocals for your productions, hard work will give you hard music. When you feel the connection between Horseman's vibe and yours, you should definitely give this (and part three with Dennis Alcapone) a try and before you know it you feel like Horseman gives your music a try, which could help in improvement.

It surely did in the Dubroom Studio. We purchased Sound System Vocals Parts One and Two (and Three) and could experience how the vocals led to the music being improved. When you click here you can get all the music released thus far where we used Horseman's Sound System Vocals. Free, as usual with Dubroom productions. One Love.
