MAD PROFESSOR'S REEL TO REEL REGGAE PART TWO
DUBROOM SOFTWARE AND SOUNDWARE REVIEW
WWW, JULY 2014 - In what could very well be the first review of the product, we take a look at Mad Professor's Reel to Reel Reggae Part Two as it was just released by Loopmasters. They've been visiting the Professor in his Ariwa studio once again and came back with some very, very interesting material. Read all about it, at least download a demo for free and find out how your productions can be served and improved by the package.

Without a doubt, part two goes further than it's predecessor. It has several things that you could only crave for and probably did, which gets clear at the beginning. So let's start there. Unlike part one, you can choose to buy certain segments rather than the whole pack which can come in handy when you're not able to purchase everything in one go or when you're simply just interested in certain aspects. Here they are:

  • Drum Loops
  • Bass Loops
  • Music Loops
  • One Shots (with sampler patches)

For this review (and of course for the Dubroom's musical productions) we've purchased the Music Loops and the One Shots. For the drum and the bass, we simply took a listen to the streaming demo's and dived in the downloadable 55 Mb free demo pack. In the the knowledge that we're dealing here with stuff from Mad Professor's Ariwa Sound Studio, and with reference to Part One, we find ourselves having a solid foundation for our examination.

The first thing you're looking for is stuff that wasn't featured before. You're going to find it, and the most striking are the two vocal sections in the One Shots package. Lee Perry fans, for example, have the choice to use several, well, utterances by Scratch. Soaked in echo's, that is. There are other vocals as well, but don't look for Aisha's famous riff as used by the Orb back in the days. You will find some harmony, some female vocals and some male. It's a bit disappointing that there's hardly a dry part, but to those that look for an instant vocal Dub vibe in their tune this is a very much coveted thing.

Take the other vocal section. Very, very dry. Very, very Mad Professor. Wait: it is the Mad Professor. In what can easily be recognized as an original move from Loopmasters, they included no less than 5 1/2 minutes of Mad Professor talking about his early works, his ideas and opinions about Dub. Divided in 17 different files, plus the ability to edit the audio in an editor: this is really some thing that can cause you to let your creativity go Beyond The Realms Of Dub

Next to a fair amount of Dubscapes (dubby soundscapes) to give you track an instant dub vibe, the One Shots pack comes with interesting Drum kits and other samples for bass, horns, flute and loads more. You can use the Sampler Patches or create your own, in any case you will find some nice extra instrumentation to your sampler's Sound Patch collection.

The Music Loops: A 360 Mb weight pack nicely organized in Horn and Flutes, Keys (Piano/Organ), Guitar and a folder named Mixed Music. This folder contain skank or riddim sections with all kinds of combinations of guitars, piano's, organs and other instruments. The guitar folder contains both skanks and the "pucking" guitar, while the Horns folder contains more themes than Part One offered (even a riff from Michael Prophet's Rootsman Album, one of the all-time favorites of yours truly).

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain from a visit to Loopmaster's product page of Mad Professor's Reel To Reel Reggae Part Two. Listen to the excellent 3 minutes demo, perhaps even when you're not a producer at all and landed on this page thinking it's about a new Mad Professor Album. Or check out the three musical tracks produced only with material from Reel to Reel Reggae Parts One and Two (with the exception of the vocal parts).

Press "GET" to go to the product page or press DEMO (ZIP) to get yourself a small demo package. You'll have to register yourself and be logged in at LOOPMASTERS.com in order to download the Demo.
