Dread Hornz takes inspiration from the classic ‘70s horn-driven reggae recordings of Jamaica - think of The Abyssinians Satta Massagana and it’s haunting horns, Burning Spear’s majestic intensity and Marley’s anthemic horn stabs that punctuated his lyrics.
It’s those magical sounds that we’ve aspired to: the slightly bent notes, the lagged playing style, the beautiful imperfections, the plaintive, hypnotic melancholy, that captured your imagination and struck a chord. It is all of those elements that embodies the essence of Dread Hornz.
Performed by the Booom Hornz, Dread Hornz contains 10 song folders. Each song folder has multiple horn lines and riffs. Created for maximum flexibility and usability the pack includes Full Horns (Trumpet, Tenor Sax and Trombone) separated parts and riffs in different keys and 6 multiple FX processed versions of each “Dry” loop : FilterEcho, LoFi, Multi FX, Phase, Reverb and SpaceEcho.
With over 2500+ loops, Dread Hornz provides a variety of tempos and keys that provide maximum usage for Bass Music, Dub, Reggae, Grime, Electro, Jungle, Breakbeat, Dancehall, Hiphop, Triphop and beyond.
Dry: Raw loops without any processing or FX. This allows you to start from scratch to create your own processed versions that is just right for your productions.
FilterEcho: We ran the main full horn sections through a combination of LFOs and Echo to create a washy, spaced out sound that will be right at home in any dub, trip hop, downtempo track.
LoFi: Emulating that dusty vintage sound of old vinyl that always sounds good.
Multi FX: Distortion, Flanger, Chorus, Delay, Reverb, Filter & EQ - the Multi packs the full punch of tasteful and useful processing with a lot of groove.
Phase: The ever present Phase shifting sound heard on many “skanks” in reggae (the offbeat guitar, piano chops) adding movement to the loops.
Reverb: A sweet, short EMT Plate reverb for ambience
SpaceEcho: utilizing the legendary Roland RE-201 Space Echo tape machine, we’ve run all the loops through the UAD emulation plugin for some quirky, wobbly goodness.
