Future Loops is proud to present 'Zion Train Dub Selections' a massive collection of sounds from the legendary Zion Train crew. With more than 2.500 samples, this collection provides you with essential dub drenched elements that will allow you to build complete tunes from scratch.
After the highly acclaimed Zion Train Dub Drums (that featured live dub drums from multiple sessions) Neil Perch, the production dub wizard behind Zion Train, opened up his own personal dub vault and teamed up with Future Loops once more to bring you a must-have set of Dub samples.
Being one of the planet's most prolific ensembles Zion Train have gathered huge following from dub fans all over the world with their signature dub, electronica and world dance music. They have a mammoth recorded output and countless production credits, remixes and collaborations as well as being very active in the DIY underground culture, producing magazines, CDs, websites and their now famous custom built Sound System. Recently their outstanding productions have earned them a Reggae Grammy for 'best dub album' in 2008.
Now and after over 2 years of work Future Loops offers you 'Zion Train Dub Selections', a pack loaded with positive vibes that celebrates the Dub genre and shares the legacy of the Zion Train sound.
With more than 2.500 samples 'Zion Train Dub Selections' provides you with essential dub drenched elements that will allow you to build complete tunes from scratch, ranging from the earthy reggae vibes to the more dance-floor oriented material: Bass, Brass, Keys, Voxx, FX and Full Beats are all included.
The Full Beats section of 'Zion Train Dub Selections' was developed with the user in mind giving you unlimited possibilities for mixing, mashing and constructing dub breaks from the ground up: 40 Full Beats are included and each is provided with 4 or 5 variations (variations have different effects, reverbs, delays etc..) bringing the total of grooves to 236 loops .
In addition the separate drum loop elements (Kick, Snare, Hat...) are offered as standalone loops for each variation and to make 'Zion Train Dub Selections' even more mouth-watering, the Drum Hits (over 300) are available as well giving you full control and flexibility.
In the Bass folder you will find both Live Bass (real Bass sessions with powerful basslines as well as one-shots) and Synth Bass (with deep, low and ready-to-make-the-speakers-rumble loops and one-shots).
The Lo-Fi Brass folder includes over 200 loops of vintage sounding Trumpets & Trombones with an almost vinylesque feel to them. If you are looking for very clean sounding brass loops look somewhere else: these Brass come directly from Neil Perch's personal collection and they definitely have a clandestine character and personality to them that we feel gives them a special warmth and hearth ideal for dub productions.
The Keys are organized by type, including Clav, Electric Piano, Organ and Rhodes. There are 180 loops and also 280 one-shots (notes, chords) so there's a lot to work on if you are looking for dub keys samples.
The Voxx folder features the participation of Brother Culture and Dubdadda and 50 vocal samples are included.
The FX content is organized in three different folders: Lush FX, Atmospheres and Analogue Noises. On total you have more than 200 FX sounds that are quite varied and go from harsh synth builds and analogue uplifters to drones, textures, bleeps or even field recordings.
In sum, 'Zion Train Dub Selections' has the following content:
• 4.88 GB (3.5GB before content duplication)
• 2554 WAV files / 1457 REX files
• 40 Full Beats with several variations each (236 loops)
• 206 Loop Elements (Kick, Snare, Percussion, Claps etc...) with several variations each (819 loops)
