Loopmasters releases Mad Professor - Reel To Reel Reggae [HAL|KON|...]
2nd February 2010
Loopmasters has announced the release of a sample-pack from one of the legends of modern Dub: Mad Professor - Reel To Reel Reggae.
A disciple of Lee "Scratch" Perry, Mad Professor was one of the leading producers in dub reggae's second generation. His Dub Me Crazy albums helped Dub make the transition into the digital age, when electronic productions started to take over mainstream reggae in the '80s. His space-age tracks not only made use of new digital technology, but often expanded dub's sonic blueprint, adding more elements and layers of sound than his forebearers typically did. As his reputation grew, he became a remixer of choice for adventurous rock and techno acts, most notably revamping Massive Attack's entire second album under the new title No Protection.
Mad Professor worked closely with the Loopmasters team to create an exclusive and authentic collection of some of his most prized musical gems from the Ariwa studios reggae vaults.
The Mad Professor "Reel to Reel Reggae" sample collection includes over 450 Authentic Royalty Free Reggae samples including 315 loops and 140 Single hit sounds, with tempos of 100, 125, 135 and 145 BPM. Included with the collection are 58 ready to play patches for Reason NNXT, HALion, EXS, SFZ and Kontakt samplers, and Apple Loops, Reason Refill and Ableton Live versions are also available to purchase separately.
Mad Professor has provided 50+ Deep and Dubby Basslines, 89 Heavyweight Dub Drumloops, 40+ Dub Horn Loops, 33 Dubbed Out Reggae Drum Fills, 50 Single Dub Drum Samples, 60+ Authentic Reggae Musical Hits, and a collection of 80+ Dusty Musical Loops featuring Dub Pianos, Synths, Flute parts, Guitar and Mixed Musical Loops.
The price is £24.95.
