Buying options

Dub libraries can be tricky things to get right, and unfortunately, Deep Dub Rising – from the usually excellent Bunker 8 – doesn't get it right at all.


DDR fails to capture the authentic dub sound in the same way that sitting in a shopping trolley fails to capture the excitement of professional Formula One racing.

Many of the sounds are poorly recorded or clipped and the whole vibe is way off – what's with the 'rock' guitars? Whatever this is, it isn't dub, and it's not particularly good, either.

The perfect present for anyone who hates dub, music production in general, and themselves.
