3 Secrets to Beat Making for Beginners 2

 

That’s right, it’s the person using the tool that actually makes the music. That’s what I’m about to help you with today. Let’s dive into this 3-step process for making beats. #1 – INSPIRATION The first thing that you need is inspiration. What I do for inspiration is, I go to Splice, and whatever I’m thinking about, I type in the name of a sound, related to what I’m thinking about. An example of this, would be me thinking of the word ‘awareness’. Then I go to Splice.com, click ‘sounds’ and scroll down until I see some cover art with a clever title that relates to where my head is at that moment. In this particular situation, it was the Persian Essentials Santur collection. When I clicked the cover art, the very first sample was it. That’s what I chose to start with. #2 – COMPLIMENT Don’t over think things. Pick 2 drums, a kick and a snare and figure out a cool pattern to compliment the sample that you selected in step #1. Choose the pattern that makes you bob your head the most.
You can also choose a melody to layer over the loop, but in this specific track, I chose drums to be next in line. #3 – MIX AND MANGLE You should tweak and play with things until each and every sound you’ve added fits together like a puzzle and makes sense. Step 3 is a very broad topic, but it leaves things open for your imagination to run wild. For example, my version of mixing and mangling this track would be, EQ’ing things aggressively.
