Default Old school Dub

Here are two versions on an old school dub done in Reaper. Inspired by the Dub classic "Dread Lion" by Lee 'Scratch' Perry.

That was good for the head. Esp when played loud.

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it. It's pretty blown out and dripping with echo.
We are remixing the "clean remix" right now. Should be a new version by the time you read this...

Just don't "un-dub" it too much! That was a big part of the head trip.

The remix is still pretty dubbed out. We think. Comments?

More solid. More cohesive. How's your free time? I have a dub-y tune that I feel you can help me with.

Man there's a ton of industrial strength heavy weirdness on your soundcloud. Some really head exploding stuff.

Hello sammydix,
We'd be glad to try to help. You can reach us here or at our Soundcloud page. And remember, when in doubt, dub it!

We appreciate the kind words. We've been working on a lot of the mixes but we still have quite a way to go.
We're basically remixing all of our demoes (keeping the old versions too of course - that's history right there, lol). We have 70 or 80 to remix. It's coming along like a tortoise, slowly but surely.

Thank you sir! Worked for quite a while to get the mix as clearly defined and distorted as possible. If that makes any sense.
Still not there yet but closer.

Got the file. Now just have to figure out how/what/when/where to modify the tracks. Never worked on someone else's music before. It is a very technical challenge for us not to mention an artistic one. Should be a good time!

It's just voice and bass so far, so you have a nice outline on the palette. Paint in the colors however you feel. Maybe start with a beat, then you'll have the basic drum/bass rhythm section, then work outward from there? No worries, no hurry.

Delays, wow, there were a few...
Ibanez ES2 Echo Shifter
Way Huge Supa-Puss Analog Delay
MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay
DigiTech Obscura Altered Delay
Softube Tube Delay
Soundtoys Echoboy
Eventide Blackhole
Not including reverbs...
Possibly more but those for sure.
Thanks for the listen!

Never enough delays, echoes, reverbs and fuzz/distortion choices!
