I've made what could loosely be called dub with Acid Pro, Sound Forge and AO TapeEcho, a plugin that simulates a tape delay. There are many more programs that may be used to make computerized dub, these are just the ones that i had access to.
Buzz (a modular sequencer/ synthesizer/ sampler/ effect machine) - It's freeware, rather hard to understand at the beginning, but it has nearly all what you will need: <BR>- sequencer <BR>- samplers/ trackers <BR>- synthesizers <BR>- drum machines <BR>- about 100 (or more ?) effect machines, like delay, reverb, equalisers, filters, etc. <BR> <BR>Massa
No, Buzz do not work on Macs for sure. However, it should be possible to make good Dub with every software, as long it allows you full control of the classical effects as delay, reverb and maybe some phasing. The quality of Dub does not depend that much on which instruments you use, but more on the way how you use it. <BR> <BR>Keep up, <BR>Hoester <BR> <BR><A HREF="http://www.mp3.com/HoesterSoundSystem" TARGET="_top">http://www.mp3.com/HoesterSoundSystem</A>
i'm using reason to do dub on a mac. doing dub is new for me, but i really like this software, and i've been pretty happy with the results i've gotten. reason has everything you really need. limitless "analog" synths, samplers, a great drum machine, plenty of effects. and you can patch stuff together however you want, so you can be as creative as in a real studio. if you want to combine computer generated stuff with live, you can route the individual tracks from reason onto individual tracks of cubase, (or other multi-track software) and then record live into more cubase tracks.
try using OrionPro: <BR> <BR>www.sonic-syndicate.com <BR> <BR>the mixing desk is one of it's strong points... 4 sends and 2 inserts per channel. comes with some good delay and reverb too. drop in some mdaDubDelay and ride it into distortion (the desk is fully automated - record and it will remember what you twiddle). <BR> <BR>also has a built in Sampler, Drum-machine etc. <BR> <BR>for digital dub, i would recommend: <BR> <BR>1) OrionPro <BR>2) Ohmboys Delay, MdaDubDelay, Spin Audio Delay or dbTempoDelay <BR>3) Some good analog synths like the Muon Tau Pro (great for really low bass) <BR>4) Some brass and percussion soundfonts <BR> <BR>you could get all this for cheaper than a cut-down version of Cubase, and you could easily knock out some dubs with it. Follow the hints on this site.... ;) <BR> <BR>Al
mda DubDelay and mda Delay are great plug-ins. I also use Muon Tau for subsonic basslines. With the proper settings, the Steinberg Neon can make a great rhthym instrument. Can't argue with NI B4 for an organ sound. It's important to have good sounds, at least sounds that work together and you are happy with. But, it is what you do with them that makes Dub what it is. <BR> <BR>Goat
If you use Cubase is HAlion a must have. It's a really good sampler. <BR>I also use cubase but I cant say that it have everything you need to make good dub. I think you need to have external istuments and effects. But I have to agree that the B4 is very good for organ sounds. Istead of using Neon for basslines, use halion and sample some real bass sounds from the internet. The sampler has a real good filter for basses. <BR> <BR>/Sam
Manmachine, <BR>i've found this topic at cool edit user boards <BR><A HREF="http://forums.syntrillium.com/topic.asp ... 6%2BTricks" TARGET="_blank">removing vocals using cool edit</A> <BR> <BR>regards, <BR>/Mike Zee
i would say the best way to dub music on a computer nowadays ist a combination of reason and live (by ableton). reason will be the sound synthesis part and live allows you to make sequencing dub stuff easily. the are great effects in it (3 or four different dealy, a great reverb and lots more). very easy to use. great interface.
me i make dub on the fruity loops studio 3.5 and i use the mda dubdelay, tape delay,grenwha for the wah effect (it is a very good vst plugin for the effect)(go to the www.greenmachine.opucases.de/GreenWah.zip <BR>soundfont of fender and gibson for the rythm guitar , i have the dr.sample sp 202 for the live effects . i have 2 synths for the emulation instrument like the sitar and oriental instrument( remplace horn and brass) and i mixed my dub with jungle or drum and bass. where i find the good vocals for dub music
