Help!! Wanna start dubbing!!!!

Couple of album recommendations

"Scientist Meets The Space Invaders" was kind of fun and I've found a number of Scientist gems on various compilations. I've found though that his sound becomes kind of predictable after a while and there are so many albums out there that its hard to know which are killer and which are filler.

Phaser techniques

Depends on the sound you want, but aux/insert is pretty standard. <BR> <BR>If you want to go pretty far out, put it on a bus (if your mixer/DAW supports them) and send a group of instruments there. Since throwing alot of sound thru a phaser sounds really odd, I use that sparingly. When I do ...

Dub in London...

Its funny that someone asked about the health implications of a Jah Shaka show because a few weeks ago Shaka played Tokyo. I'd had 5 fillings done the day before and had to leave the show after only 90 minutes due to bass pain in my jaw
