MusicRadar has announced the release of 281 Free Dub Samples, a collection of loops previously featured on Computer Music magazine’s cover DVD.
Our subject this time is dub, the throbbing drum- and bass-heavy genre that grew out of reggae. Thanks in no small part to its influence on the ‘so hot right now’ dubstep sound, it’s a style that’s recently come back into sharp focus.
In fact, even if you’re not a dub producer, you’ll probably find that you can pilfer something from the genre, so make sure you take these sounds for a spin.
The samples are split across four construction kits, each of which contains drum, bass, guitar, keyboard and other loops, plus a selection of drum hits.
All the samples are in 24 Bit WAV format and they’re royalty-free, you’re welcome to use them in your music in any way you like.
