Of all the musical genres to emerge over the past six decades, the laid-back reggae sub-genre of dub is surely one of the most influential, especially to anyone using technology to make music.
Nowadays, dub influences permeate all genres. No matter what style of music you make, you’ll find a use for a huge delay tail, siren FX, minimal vocal chop or heavy sub bass. To that end, we’ve put together this vibe-tastic Dub Designer sample pack.
What you need to know
The Dub designer samples are divided into four tempo-labelled folders. All the samples are supplied as WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice.
Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.
The dub designer samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
