Using Pre Recorded Elements Thursday 15-Feb-2001 19:09:39

Whoops sorry about the previous posts THe Weed Made Me DO IT! But seriously I know about dub creation through the computer and through instruments but I don't want to use the computer or instruments strictly pre-created music - so how would one separate an old say Alton Ellis song into 4 separate track using just hardware. I am sure Tubby and all them didn't have live instruments at dance parties to mix with - how did they separate existing songs off of records or were they just pre recorded separate instruments? that would suck for me

Re: dub jungle mastering Monday 5-Feb-2001 11:56:04

high rudy :)

I'm surprised you say producing is expensive in Italy. IMO (I'm German) it's more expensive in Germany than in Italy due to the high personal cost for the procuder room studio rent etc. Hmm may be you might find some really good (but not necessary cheap) producer here.

Furthermore Italy seems to have got some real underground like producing and publishing possibilities. I'm just thinking to Officina 99 and projects like this. The label Anagrumba has released some (high quality !) music similar to dub few years ago. They must have a really great producer there.

Dont't know where Almamegretta do produce their stuff.

How about contacting Madaski in Torino ? He was producer for Africa Unite during their dub time. And he's doing innovative jungle now.

Anyway I would be glad to listen to your demo !

Re: dub jungle mastering Monday 5-Feb-2001 19:27:21

Melodica's Friday 26-Jan-2001 13:57:22


I'm looking at producing traditional reggae dub and I have questions about melodica's. Is there one specific type of melodica that sounds best with dub? I'm felling a big Augustus Pablo influence here what did he use?

Jah Guide.

Re: Melodica's Monday 29-Jan-2001 21:47:36

Hi man

I'm just a dub lover Augustus Pablo one of my favs I think my first dub ablum was Ital Dub.

Anyway just to say if you come up with anything good drop us a line.

As to the melodica if It was me I'd just go into my local music store and try them out for myself.

I would try to get a different one to Pablo on the grounds of lets try and be orginal.

Or why not try and look for intsrument no one else has used yet.

Good luck what ever to do
Re: Melodica's Wednesday 31-Jan-2001 15:47:14

All Melodicas have the same basic sound. They come in different ranges like Alto Soprano etc but any one of them will do. I believe Pablo used a piano-style maybe an HM-26 judging from pictures I've seen. I bought an HM-901 from a junk shop and I get the same sound. Very easy to play and nothing else gets that classic Dub sound.

I was wondering if anyone here ever listened to Kruder & Dorfmeister?

They apply (especially Kruder) this kind of nice filtered delay fx very
often. I think its a delay time of 1/8 but I am not sure.
Also wondering how they filter it. I've tried to imitate it using a cut up sampled delay and put the Emu filters over it but it doesn't sound right to me.
Does anyone know how these things are done?

Would it help if I fee back my delay channel (rtrn of the fx box) back to the fx box to get a kind of feedback loop???

Thanx a lot

Yamaha Box Tuesday 2-Jan-2001 19:31:55


I've seen some kind of rhythm/effect box produced by Yamaha.
It's a box with a techno like design about 8 effect controls a rudimental equalizer a couple of drum rhythms and a sample scratch device. It does cost about 300 US$. It seems to be a new development.

Anyone of you does know it ?

Could it a good bargain for someone (me!) just for starting with dub not made with software only ?
The effects seem to be sufficient (delay echo etc.) so far.
I'm not sure about the possibilities to program own drum patterns and to use own samples. And the customer didn't know it too.
How about the sound quality ? How about its robustness especially of those control buttons. Do they break easily won't they produce annoying (unwanted) noise effects due to bad electric contact ?

Is it easy enough to manage under live conditions or does it make sense only with home studio productions ?

I know it's not a professional device. I just need something cheep for to start. And it shall work for creating/ supporting some dub style tunes.

I thought to use it the box for support with drum patterns/ loops noise effects and sample effects. I may plug in external devices as cd player radio tape recorder cheep microphone beginners keyboard (cinch midi). If necessary a computer with a couple of soft synths samplers trackers etc. may be plugged in too (cinch midi).

Anyone of you could help me ?
Thanks !


P.S. I don't need Yamaha own device descriptions or advertisment texts since they don't seem to be very believable.
radical eq techniqes Tuesday 2-Jan-2001 09:34:45

try maximum boost on one frequency on one channel and alter the frequency to give you wah effects also nice with added reverb echo etc.
the old desks used by tubby perry etc didn't have this facility as the eq;s stepped the frequencies
ie'300 hz/500hz/1khz with to recreate this stepped eq shifts use snapshots of the eq on a digital desk/computer to jump about harder on a new analogue desk. try splitting the signal down 4 or more channels all with different eq and turn them on one at a time

Re: keyboards or sound modules for basslines Tuesday 9-Jan-2001 07:49:22

It depends on what type os sound you want how much you want to spend and if its a rack or keyboard or software. the novation basstation is ok but its better for acid bass as opposed to real bass. i use a boss syb3 pedal cause theyre
cool cheap built like a tank and it can do lots. for software theres some good vst plugins at try out the sub
bass synth in the maxim pack.
theres a really cool peavey bass module i cant
remember the name but they were discontinued recently maybe you could get one cheap.

Original Style Friday 8-Dec-2000 13:55:22

Hello dubfreaks-

Okay I have looked over this message board and seen some questions on how to get started making dub. My question goes a little deeper does anyone out there have information a list of some sort about the actual instruments used by tubby scientist and scratch. I know one piece was the Roland Space Echo but there has gotta be others.

I know many of them made their own stuff but I am convinced that there's more to the original sound. On the same subject anyone know what organs keyboards backing bands such as the Roots Radics used?

Peace and Beats
Re: Original Style Wednesday 20-Dec-2000 10:56:32

According to "People Funny Boy" Scratch used these in the early days of Black Ark (1973-75):

Alice mixer (Scratch: "They weren't professional machines they were only toys")
Grantham spring reverb
Roland Space Echo RE201
Marantz amplifier for instruments
AKG drum mic for vocals
Teac 3340 1/4 inch 4-track recorder
Teac 2-track recorder for mix down

In 1975 he added some new equipment:
Soundcraft mixer (replaced the Alice)
Mutron phaser (an early demo model)
better mics

Around 1979 he was given a Teac 1/2 inch 8-track recorder but he didn't like it and almost never used it.

If you want to see Scratch working this stuff at Black Ark get the video "Roots Rock Reggae" from Sanachie. And the book "People Funny Boy" by David Katz is a must also. In the course of telling Lee Scratch Perry's life story he tells the whole story of Jamaican music. The best book ever on reggae.

In discussing Tubby Katz says that his equipment was mostly handmade and can't really be duplicated.

Re: Original Style Friday 12-Jan-2001 17:00:12

for an awesome roots organ check out the hammond M3 or anything in the L series. (L100 or L122 are best) i spoke with scientist himself at show out here in california and some of his tricks for the drums include taping a quarter where the mallet strikes the bass drum head also wooden mallet works best. tape a shamois to snare drum head and duct tape the hell out of your toms. run your hi-hat through a phaser. hope this helps a bit...

hi hat riddim Friday 24-Nov-2000 21:27:44

hi there
does any one know how to get the hi hat to drift that much ?? i play drums via a keyboard which really sucks and i dont seem to get a nice drift going on . it sounds like a short delay but i've tried this with my space echo but the deal is rather fixed which reduces the "swing" of the hi hat. any tips ??

secondly does any one have any experience with the bass pod from line 6 ? I use the sub dub amp for you guessed it the bass but i cant seem to get that authentic dub bass sound even with an envelope follower (set to minimal fc). the low strings are to dominant compared to the higher two no matter what configuration of effects i use.

thanx !!

Re: hi hat riddim Wednesday 29-Nov-2000 10:09:22

Synth or drummachine hihats suck always. What you can do is play with 6 to 10 different hihat types from different machines and the most important... you have to play with a lot of feel velocity changes. Try to think like a drummer.

With the Bass use flatwound strings and a good compressor and with a parametric multiband EQ you can filter out unwanted freqs and/or boost the ones you want

live dubbing Monday 13-Nov-2000 07:57:37 writes

two possibilities:
- get someone behind the mixing desk who knows
how to mix dub at your concerts. He will
connect the necessary effects (echo first of
all) and "dubmix" the group. This has the
disadvantage that it brings the mixman in a
godlike position as he will "switch on and off"
the individual group members in order to
create the effects wanted. (Typical example:
first add echo to the offbeat guitar then
fade it out so that just the echo goes on for a

- the second possibility is that all group
members get individual effect units for
themselves which they control themselves. This means spending more money on equipment but makes
it possible to really dub together.
Off course all members have to listen very
closely to what others play in order not to
overcrowd the sound - which happens very easily
when using echoes..

Finally and most importantly: Listen closely to
dub music you like and try to figure out how it
was made!

Get the dub rolling..

Organizing a dub party - as weird as possible Monday 6-Nov-2000 13:11:45 writes


we want to organise a dub party. Not a normal one. Not one of those commercial style dub parties. It shall be rather weird. Our dj/party skills (still) are rather low (few mixing experience no toasting skills some experience with ska parties) but we have a usable music collection for a hot night.

May be you have some suggestions for some nice "additional features" for the party. Experimental stuff would be welcome. How to create some "halluzinating" light effects (with low cots equipment ... video beamers are too expensive) ? Any experiences with just adding noise effects using some seperate equipment (seperate cd player maybe even seperate amplifier and boxes). What drinks and food are the hit (don't tell me just about that non efect cannabis cola or non-efect hemp sandwiches) ?

We need more weird(!) dub like that Dubadelic or Trumystic Sound System stuff. And also very (extremely?) hard neo dub noisy dublike sounds etc. Any suggestions on what to buy ? ... shame on us - we're using cd players and/or tapes ...

How to create effects with normal equipment allowing few effects only ? Stuff like putting small pieces of metal or glasses-on-glass on loudspeakers or using rotating hi-frequency loudspeakers plugging in old radio receivers or mixing in very old classic plates you know ... Just for example where to put in the microphone for bad effects ?

Where to chill out when there's few place ? Do we need bunk beds with headphones for each place ?

Any idea for unusual but usable loacations ? Our only ideas till now are old cellars or air-raid shelters.

We want to make it cheap. Better yery cheap. Do sponsors necessarily destroy the atmosphere or might they be integrated in good way ?

How to keep the air clean in rooms without air condition ?

How to make people not crying around "free marihuana" outside the location ? Any more security hints ?

Thanks for any help !

Re: Organizing a dub party - as weird as possible Saturday 16-Dec-2000 20:07:46

We just ran a DubDance in Brooklyn and this girl Leesaw contributed projections. She had 4 set up around the room and it worked very well.

Her cheap and cheerful method is to compose the images on a mac and then shoot the slides off the
screen with a camera and 1 hour photo processing.

Thus anything you can think of up to noon on the day of the session can be projected..
Software Dubbing Monday 6-Nov-2000 12:32:35 writes


I know about Fruity Loops as a possible software for creating dub tunes.
I'm starting with Buzz since it's much more potential (every imaginable software effect machine may be plugged in for free and you may use lots of sound generators as samplers synthesizers etc.). Well Buzz is rather hard to understand and to use but contrary to hardware equipment it's free (I may "learn" to crate dub tracks with buzz and may be buy some hardware later).

Is there anyone among you who is using buzz (or maybe just tracker software as FastTracker ModPlug Tracker or MadTracker) too ?
I still need some help and may be some (source code) songs as demo/ tutorials.

Is there a manual for dubbing for bloody stupid beginners ? (besides that wonderful DubMeCrazy site)

If not I might create one (after one or two years of experience). So anyone would like to join me ? I mean that serious !

becoming a dub producer in 6 steps Monday 13-Nov-2000 07:48:13 writes

Hi Massa

Producing a traditional dub reggae track in 6

1. get the following equipment:
- multitrack tape recorder
- mixing desk
- amplifier and speakers to monitor your music
- a tape or DAT recorder to capture your final
- effect units: echo reverb
- cables to connect everything
- instruments & players: drums bass guitar
keyboards horns percussion vocals

2. record a song or at least a basic arrangement.
- record each instrument or instrument group
on an individual track of your tape

3. set the levels and equalizing for each track
on the mixing desk so that you get a basic

4. run the song and switch on and off
individual tracks during the song.
typical settings are:
- all tracks
- just drums & bass
- no bass no drums
- no voice for most of the mix

5. use the different effects on the
individual tracks.
typical techniques are:
- connect the effects to the auxiliary outs
of your mixing desk. Thus you can set
the effect level for each track
- set delay times to match the song speed
(use whole beat half beat tripplet timing..
very typical: one and a half beat)
- reverb or echo on the snare drum; not
everytime but once in a while
- change the delay time during the song - this
leads to echoes bouncing up and down
in pitch (only on analog delay units)
- echo on the offbeat guitar: open aux send
slowly over 2 bars letting the echoes
accumulate until they start to overcrowd
the sound then switch off the offbeat track.
the delays will go on for a while and fade
- make sure the sound stays crisp: keep bass
and drums dominant; don't open all aux sends
at once

6. repeat the whole mix many times and listen
to the recorded dubs afterwards.
select the best version.

I hope this helps to get you started. feel free
to ask if there are open questions.

step 1 - instruments (samples) Thursday 23-Nov-2000 12:26:11 writes

Hey interruptor

thanks for your easy to understand answer (and that one 2 or 3 articles up). Tough I was looking for a pure software based solution your 6 step way basically shall work with the synthe-sequencer Buzz.
What I need now are hi-quality samples for piano/guitar for chords (those that really work with dub not that classic piano etc.) bass (hmm I'm synthesizing one right now) and brass. It seems impossible to find great sounding brass samples/instrument files. Not those amiga sounding brass. Natural sounding samples that would work with a pure ska song too. For melody and for chords (well for chords bad samples might work too).

DUB - The real story!
Now I want to post something concerning Chuck Foster's review in October's Beat Magazine of the cd "Dub Meet Dub" from Winsuk Records/Black Spine Productions Chuck gave it a good review - the album has an edge and it has crude politically motivated cover... but he also called it a "one man dub asault" The album is in fact a compilation from tracks composed performed produced amd copyrighted by the following artists:

1. roland z - from California (2000) - hiphop/reggae fusion - "Angry Dub" (also available on Mutabaruka's sly and vicious deep jazz ep cd "Siddung pon di wall" and separately on 12" vinyl)
COMMENT: razor sharp not for the weak at heart.

2. Dubware - from Italy (from "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that skank" 1999 Arrayed Roots Sound) - neo-roots - "Lorn" (also available on vinyl 7")
COMMENT: Dubware has recently been carving its name across the media of two continents with the recently released cd "Visions of Babylon".

3. Horace Grant (formerly of the Silvertones) from Jamaica by way of San Diego (own production company partnered with dj Sir Life UCY Productions; from his 1999 cd "Jah Love") - roots-meets-dancehall - "Keep Dubbing"
COMMENT: As they used to say on Black radio stations "a Strooong song!"

4. Louie Fleck - from NYC a member of well-known NYC reggae/ska band The Motives (from his self produced cd "Instrumentality" 1998 alternate take) - progressive dub - "Too Much Free Time"
COMMENT: exquisite precision from a master of his instruments.

5. MuddyFace - from Detroit MI via Rochester NY (12" mix 2000 MuSuck Records) - trip-hop - "Motley Mix" (co-produced bt Tom McKurth)
COMMENT: Go there! - You will not return!

6. feuk - from Scotland (has recently changed his performance name to filtor) - "dark drum n bass" - "Arachnid" (1999; also available on 12" vinyl)
COMMENT: A real Dance Club shaker.

7. hormonE - from St. Petersburg Russia - breakbeat drum -n-bass - "All People" (1999; also available on 12: vinyl)
COMMENT: Lilting Eastern melody fragments above a kick-ass bass.

9. Ancient Strap-on - from Germany by way of Rochester NY (1999 Ancient Strap-On) - African influenced chant - "Monk Bait"
COMMENT: These guys have been underground stars in Western New York since the mid-80s. This started out as a parody of Gregorian chant but once African rhythmic patterns were introduced both broadened and deepened accordingly.

10. Ras Prophet - from Pittsburgh PA (from "Feel the Fire" 1997 Ras Prophet) - poppy roots dub - :"Real Dub"
COMMENT: These are the hardworking profesionals of the album and as with all truly hard-working-professional music a heap of a lot of fun!

10. Free Sex Gum from Albany NY by way of Rochester NY (from "Heaven and Hell" JDF Industries 1988) - New Wave - "Window Shopping"
COMMENT: Another underground rock fave this was the third version of FSG and includes Doug Hazard and Fred Wagner; recorded on cassette 4 track but with surprising good quality. Imagine your home town as hell and you are Jesus harrowing it. Note the Tubby-isms which were actually borrowed by way of Adrian Sherwood.

11. JahDub (Rick Stonecypher) - from North Carolina - "acid dub" (1999) - "Zion"
COMMENT: NOT to be confused with recent Continental star "Jah Acid Dub" - Rick actually used both the name and the idea of "acid dub" first - and does it better I think. This is a truly beautiful piece.

(- Of course myself:)
12. Winner "Natty" (alternate take) - from NYC by way of Rochester NY (from "I-Dub" 1999 Winsuk Records).
COMMENT: I'll stick with my typical notation: "throbbing dream musique".

13. Messian Dread - from the Netherlands (from "The Dubroom Archives" ca. 1998 the Dubroom) 12" mix - strictly roots - "Bloodsucker"
COMMENT: Could just as well have been recorded in Jamaica ca. 1977 this is roots to the root believe me - and still timeless.

Most of these artists have sites on; in addition Messian Dread Dubware Feuk/filtor and roland z operate independent sites with plenty music to spare.. Louie Fleck can be contacted via the web-site of the Motives.

I really believe this album is definitive exactly because it avoids the trap of having every track sound the same. It is a real muusical adventure - hold on for dear life ! You won't be disappointed.

Re: Sample CD´s Monday 22-Jan-2001 00:55:20

I have the Laswell CD. It's crucial. DUB TACTIC MANUAL is probably not what you think it is. I would say that the CD is esoteric and original exploring the outerlimits of DUB Jungle and Material style construction kits. I wish it had some generic dub for beginners to use. Most of this CD is for experienced DUB technicians(I use Cubase and don't have a sampler). However I consider it an essential tool for every DUB artist..beginner to advanced...I will trade for DUB only(not interested in any other music)

Re: Help!! Wednesday 11-Oct-2000 04:14:54 writes

To my opinion the real Dub started with King Tubby Coxsone and Lee Perry. Dub was in those early days a special cut from an already recorded track. leaving out all kinds of instruments. And the drums and the bass as a massive foundation of a track. Mixing in guitar skanks organs pieces of horns vocals added with lots of effect to get this "out of this world" space effects on a rough riddim. Tubby was a special man he builded his own custom mixing desk and effect machines and thats why he had such a unique sound. In these days the most dub is already produced as dub and not a "version" of a vocal track. Listen to Disciples Alpha & Omega Jah Shaka (and my own tunes) that's what i call new generation Dub.
don't be fooled by the term DUB becouse lots of house and techno dudes are using this term also.
Remember... real DUB always is a reggae riddim .

Re: Im just a baby Sunday 11-Feb-2001 11:49:16

hey summer i dont know whether your question on where to start with dub has been answered but i can help. i am heavily into dub creation and started off just like you not having a clue where to start.
there are two ways you can go about it.
1. have a live band. you will pretty much need a whole studio to go about recording live dub.
2. or you can create dub tracks on computer. this way you can use samples (other peoples work - sorry if this is too basic). programmes that i would recomend to you would be Fruity Loops Acid or my prefered programme Cubase. the first two are for using just samples but Cubase can use samples and Sound Fonts (sounds in the computer that are played using an external keyboard.
basicaly you will need a PC a decent sound card (soundblaster live or platinum) and your prefered programme. most computer shops should be able to help you choose the right programme.

hope i have been of assistance. get dubbing.

the way to get good drum sounds in fruity loops is to open a few breakbeats in a sample editor and copy the bass hit and snare hit and hi hat hit into seperate files then load the single-drum hits into seperate channels on fruity loops

Sample records for your drums or record yourself banging on anything even if you don't have drums--wood tin cans plastic buckets--

Well first off I'm a guitar player with a basist and drummer. I know the whole point of dub is using the mixing board as an instrument and not focusing on live gigs. However I really want to play dub live with my band. We have the extreme basics as far as equipment goes. Being as specific and english oriented as you all could...What would I need to help a ska band like us grow some dub roots =) ? Thanks a lot guys.


Re: HELP! Monday 3-Jul-2000 03:59:28 writes

two possibilities:
- get someone behind the mixing desk who knows
how to mix dub at your concerts. He will
connect the necessary effects (echo first of
all) and "dubmix" the group. This has the
disadvantage that it brings the mixman in a
godlike position as he will "switch on and off"
the individual group members in order to
create the effects wanted. (Typical example:
first add echo to the offbeat guitar then
fade it out so that just the echo goes on for a

- the second possibility is that all group
members get individual effect units for
themselves which they control themselves. This means spending more money on equipment but makes
it possible to really dub together.
Off course all members have to listen very
closely to what others play in order not to
overcrowd the sound - which happens very easily
when using echoes..

Finally and most importantly: Listen closely to
dub music you like and try to figure out how it
was made!

Get the dub rolling..

Re: how to build a tape echo box? Monday 5-Jun-2000 03:39:09 writes

The address john foreplay mentioned is:

I built my own tape delay out of a Revox A77
and an early BOSS digital delay.
As the A77 features a possibility to mix two signals before recording them I do not need any
additional mixer to mix in the feedback from
the tape. The digital delay is set as a simple
delay without internal feedback. It is simply plugged into the feedback loop and allows a longer and adjustable feedback time (time adjusting is not possible on
the A77 alone as there are only two tape speeds
to choose from) The BOSS delay also
features a simple equalizer which helps to
create interesting sounds.
Combining these two devices I didn't have to
build an additional play head as described
at looper's delight (link above)

greetings and happy looping..

Re: Dub Essentials Tuesday 22-Feb-2000 02:18:14 writes

If you wanna start making Dub music you are
definately going to need a mixing board and a
bunch of effects like reverb and delay especially. The whole Dub science is based around
the concept of the mixing desk\studio as an instrument anchored by the bass and the drums.
On top of that you are going to need your sound
sources whether they be from live instruments on
a multi track device or from MIDI instruments like synthesizer samplers and drum machines.
There is plenty of fine Dub made using both methods from the classic dubs of King Tubby Scientist and Prince Jammy to the modern digital
styles of Jah Shaka The Disciples Jah Warrior
and the Bush Chemists just to name a few.

Good Luck!!!

I think he made up the whole concert in his head on the spot. He was saying stuff like "reggae jammin is a must Lee "scratch" Perry gonna turn vampires into ashes & dust." Anyway great show.

I have some classic reggae dub mp3's I just finished if anyone wants a sample. Also if you have anything you've done in the same style I'd like to check it out.

Peace & Dub

third version? Tuesday 1-Feb-2000 08:58:38 writes

I was at a reggae club a while back and the DJ played three versions of the Killer Miller track which was dubbed by Tubby on King tubby meets rockers uptown (I think the original is called 'Baby I love you so'). I have the version off King tubby meets rockers uptown and I have the original undubbed version. The third version I heard was somewhere inbetween the two as far as how much it was worked by tubby. Can anybody tell me which album I might be able to find this third version and also what album the original is off (I only have the original on tape). It would be much appreciated.

submit to the dub Sunday 30-Jan-2000 14:59:16 writes

hey i just started listening to dub while i was in eastern europe this past summer (i'm in minneapolis right now) and i caught this german (i think) band called submission which was unf---ingbelievable but i can't find their stuff anywhere so if you can help that would be amazing and i will think of you always when i spin their tunes on my player.
Re: submit to the dub Wednesday 2-Feb-2000 12:20:52 writes

check the following URL:

Here I found the following:

there exist some 'real' dub bands in Germany and Austria
like "The Vision" (been there for ages) "Di Iries" from Hamburg who after all released an album with "Alpha & Omega". From
Vienna (?) come the "Sofa Surfers" - highly praised by the press. From Berlin are "Submission" coming with a first CD-EP.
And finally there are the 'oldies' "Dub Invaders" who even toured with UB 40.

Roland 505 Wednesday 19-Jan-2000 00:01:47 writes

I am thinking about getting the Roland 505. I tried it out at the music store and it was tight. I just dont know if this is the right piece of equiptment to get. I am into dub but I also want to make hiip hop tracks and some punk reggae and funk. I am a guitarist and pretty much just need bass and drums and I think having the rest of the effects on there would be kool. I would love for someone to tell me what is good out there Roland land and maybee help me pick out something that would be good for me. I am dying to make music but I don't know a drummer or a descent bass player.

Scientist worked at a studio that I recorded at. He is the best! The studio was called Hound Sound in Baltimore MD USA. It was a great studio but got raided by "Babylons Army" (the cops). He is out here now in San Francisco at a new studio. Dub Syndicate's album "Mello and Colly' was mixed at Hound Sound they had some "killer" vintage tube preamps and compressors that once belonged to Led Zeppelin. The sound was pure analog nirvana.
