Loopmasters return to the vaults of Ariwa Studios for the highly anticipated sequel from the one and only Dub Legend Mad professor with an exciting collection of original roots samples dedicated to Dub, Reggae, Dubstep and DnB producers worldwide.
Reel to Reel Reggae Vol 2 is an authentic collection of royalty free Dub & Reggae sounds sourced from very rare unreleased tracks imprinted to tape at the Mad Professor Ariwa studios. This collection is the result of extensive live remixing session of original Dub recordings by Mad Professor performed with only a loaded reel to reel machine, a 48 Channel SSL and real-time tweaking of vintage outboard delays and filters including 2 original 1960s Pultec HLF-3C passive EQs to add the trade mark Professor sound.
Mad Professor prides himself on producing using his ears alone and within the Ariwa studio you will not find any computers or PC monitors or gimmicky software controllers, it’s all analogue here, in fact the only thing digital in the studio the day we arrived was our first class Zoom recorder which we used to capture the Professor at work in stunning 24Bit.
The collection also features some excerpts from a very special Mad Professor interview he kindly allowed us to record talking about his career, the history of Dub and the future of a sound that will never die.
Expect to find live roots drums and vintage drum machine Reggae loops, live room shaking bass lines together with a huge collection of inspiring and uplifting instrument loops including funky horns, spaced-out dub guitar riffs, psychedelic dub SFX, choppy organ bubbles and skanking pianos.
