The Dubroom reviews a lot of different material, from musical to educational to beneficial and more. We've got music, but also material for artists and producers as well as researchers of more conscious material. As always, when the Dubroom reviews something, this means that this website considers the material at least fair. So don't expect any negative reviews. When it's here, we recommend it. Period.

REBIRTH MUSEUM
DUBROOM  WEBSITE REVIEW

WWW, September 2005 - In the 1990's, Propellerhead Software introduced a perfect simulation of two Drum Computers and two monophonic Synthesizers. The program was called "Rebirth", and with reason! 

Originally, these devices were made by the Roland Corporation in the 1980's and no longer available. Ironically, the sounds became the standard for a whole new style of music. So everyone was looking for a real Roland TR 808 Drum Computer. And the prices for these instruments went sky-high!

Needless to say, that REBIRTH was a great success. Complete tracks were created with the program, and these tracks were hits in the dances! 

Needless to say, that REBIRTH gave the user possibilities that went beyond those of the much sought-after hardware. Thanks to the Rewire software, it could even be linked to sequencers! 

Now this great piece of software has been "discontinued" by their developers in september 2005. It's no longer possible to buy the software. 

The reason for that is "Reason". That is the follow-up for Rebirth which has become a complete software studio that will enable the user to create DUB music (See the in-depth Dubroom Reason 3.0 Review).

Anyway...

Rebirth Discontued? Great news for the contemporary computer based DUB Producer! 

How can that be good news? 

Well, that answer is given kind of quickly too. Propellerhead Software has decided to give away the software for free now!

They have started a website called "Rebirth Museum". It's a static website, meaning that there's not much happening. But after registering, you can dowloand the complete instalation CD ROM and install a full working version of REBIRTH on your computer.

Sure, it will give Propellerhead a good name. But so it should, because time after time after time they proof themselves to be real contributors of real development of digital music production.

With the REBIRTH Software, you can make some real nice drum and basslines. No, the software will not enable you to make crucial DUB music. There's only two effects (echo and distortion), and it's impossible to play chords (the synthesizers are monophonic). 

The software however does contain two fully working drum computers and two fully working monophonic synthesizers. It also contains the "official"  TR 808 sounds, as acknowledged by Roland Corp.

A BIG UP to Propellerhead!
