Best VST And Kontakt Plugins For Reggae Music

How to choose the best VST plugins and loops which are most suitable for your reggae music track? In this scenario, we need to consider about 2 types of VST plugins. They are loops and instruments. In this article, I am listing some marvelous VST loops and VST drum instruments that can push your reggae music track to the next level. I will try my best to update this article every month when the arrival of competitive new products.


I do not discuss details about VST drum instruments because I already discussed some of them in the article under the best VST instruments category. So, let’s consider the loops. Loops are live recorded instrument parts or arpeggios which can adjust according to the tempo of your music track. By using quality and suitable loops, you can increase the quality of your music track or song up to a professional level.



Please refer to the following table which contains important things that we should consider regarding reggae VST loops. I explained each character one by one after the table. I am a sound engineer and please note that all of these rankings, scoring, and reviewing are done according to my own 10 year working experiences in the music composing field.

6Loopmasters Reel to Reel Reggae Vol 282821.48GB£29.95
7Dubmatix Reggae Soundclash80821.58GB$38.74

What is Sound naturality of Loops?

In this character, I measure how much the instruments of the loops can come close to a real sound of the real instruments. This can measure by comparing the loop sounds with real instruments.

What is Blend / Mix quality of Loops?

By looking at this measurement, you can choose the best VST loop which can blend with other instruments. It means that how much the sound of the loop can hear separately and clearly when it playing with other instruments especially in songs. This is a very important character because mix quality is a major factor that affects the quality of a music track.
