Tutorial: Reggae / "Making Dub with Computers"

Ok, at first sight this might look a bit (or very much ) off... website design ... very slow steps... long introduction... no video... text only... every new chapter has its own site...

But, for me personally this was like super super super precious...

It really (very slowly) takes you precisely through all those steps making a basic Reggae Riddim...

it opened up a whole new world and inspired me to finally learn the guitar, some more piano and more music theory... this was, along with watching "Dub Echoes" on youtube, a huge motivation.

it helped me to understand the basic reggae structure / elements... i can highly recommend you this, if you have the motivation to break out from your standard EDM routine... and maybe do some dub and or Reggae inspired music... you should take the time and do this tutorial.

Dub Echoes is basically must see for anyone who likes any kind of modern electronic music.

Reading your post - and checking out the tutorial - made me want to suggest doing some kind of dub exchange.

I'm into dub music myself (obviously), and like you - I've been studying it for a while already.

Not being able to replicate a studio like King Tubby's, with rooms for recording a band and all that, - it could still be nice sometimes to have a sparring partner who is into the same kind of thing!

So..

I guess I'm thinking something like exchanging stems/riddims (sending stuff back and forth over the net), adding new tracks to already existing ones, making versions of each others tracks and so on. And exchanging critique and ideas as well, of course.

Well, I thought I'd just throw it out there anyway. Let me know what you think

That might be a really cool idea for a community project guys. Iíd love to see that part of the forum more active.

I know we had a little tiff about the label in another thread @[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
, but Iím just the low asshole on the totem pole. There is talk of creating a sub-label to support community projects. A few things to think about. I love dub in all its foms too.

Been listening to some Ott here and there recently.

I didn't handle that very elegantly. Sorry about that. My recent affair with brb seems to have addled my brain..

I tried listening to Ott, but couldn't really get into it. I think I can see can see why it's popular though (the stuff I found was pretty pop).

I might try to dig deeper later..

If you're into British Dub, I think this new re-release of the early Dub Syndicate albums is worth mentioning (produced by Adrian Sherwood):

No need to apologize man. But I appriciate it, I was far from elegant myself. Sorry about that.

Yea. Ott isnít for everyone. And I donít know his catalog super well, but my sense of things is his sound varies pretty widly from release to release besides it all being dubby. I will check out that release. I can get down with most things Adrian Sherwood is into for sure.

The big city north of me (dunno if Cleveland, Ohio means anything to you) has its own Sound System now. I havenít made it out to a show yet though.

dub exchange? of course i`m up for it...

the only thing is, when it comes to my music... i tend to work on too many things at the same time.
It is getting better recently, so i more focus on finishing more old stuff before i start too many new projects...

so i`m not sure if i can keep up with you time-wise

I allready know it for about a few weeks... listening it very much since then...

Generally i almost love everything from Adrian Sherwood and his label "On-U Sound"... there are many many great albums on spotify... for example "Becoming a Cliche" from A. S. ... or the band "African Head Charge"
