Study the old skool and be the new. Senseless to copy the old. Good to be inspired by the old.
Reggae music is all about the vibes and inspiration.

[quote="DC"]Imho anyone using loops is basicly doing the same as way back with tape slicing. To me that's not making music.[/quote]

Well that is old(er) skool then, isn't it DC?

For the vibes it does not matter if loops are being used or not. Personally I love to listen to a good loop. BIG UP to all crucial loop-creators!!! For a good and pleasant loop won't disappoint you after a minute or an hour. So let a good loop be the foundation of a good tune. Always better than a dull techno-dub tune that bleeds to death after 40 seconds.
Just my humble I-pinion. :D

I don't have any problems with people using loops. But don't say you make the tune and making music as for me it's just copying and pasting parts of music someone else played.
Making a tune yorself means play all chords, riddims, bline and such.

To me these days producers have to move forward, too many 100 of the same sounding riddim come out. Doin the same trick each and every time gets boring imho.

ps
no loops were used -everything was sequenced and step programmed

the next one we do will be a traditional dub style with a live drummer and recorded to 8 track half inch tape

Great topic,

must check it out more later.

Use whatever it takes to get the job done.
Hardware, software, instruments.
A loop, drum hit or drum kit.

It does not matter how you get there,
It is all about the sound & if you are happy with it..........
