[QUOTE=euphoria;35282931]Yo bro, can I rap on this beat? I'm not gonna use it for profit or anything of the sort. Just make a video maybe, but I'll list that you made the beat in the credits, video description, and title. If I have permission though.[/QUOTE] go for it
[QUOTE=D3TBS;35540690]Hey guys I want to be all cool dj like too, I got fruity loops! I know a few things about it, but nothing so amazing. What are good tutorials on youtube that I can watch? Also, how many BPM do you normally work with?[/QUOTE] I usually work with 80bpm but that's just me. I started off by searching up specific things that i didn't know how to do, like uh... chopping notes & stuff.

I want to start making hip hop beats but I have no idea where to start, if someone could give me a few pointers it'd be much appreciated.
-Snip- wrong thread :(
[QUOTE=DJK;35663908]I want to start making hip hop beats but I have no idea where to start, if someone could give me a few pointers it'd be much appreciated.[/QUOTE] Look at other artists for ideas on techniques and stuffs and try them out for yourself then try making your own stuff.
I made my own thread but I forgot about this one...what do you guys think [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kz2R4fBwa1E&feature=plcp&context=C4ebb151VDvjVQa1PpcFNovygNUTw6tBQoAKwpaVXHqzKvZjhM-AU=[/media]

[media]http://soundcloud.com/xerxesthegiant/i-stabbed-a-man[/media] My friend wanted me to make him a simple beat to rap to and I got super bored and this came out of it.

I swear everyone's been sampling that double bongo and hi-hat roll. "God" was the best of the three. Speed it up by like 5bpm tho, real talk. Feel like it's dragging way too much. Also, that deep piano tone you were going for would sound better, and still be deep, one octave up.
There are no samples in that beat. I just did it myself
[QUOTE=Da Jungles;35993259]There are no samples in that beat. I just did it myself[/QUOTE] You may not have consciously sampled the drums, but the drum kit your using did. [video=youtube;A5AAcgtMjUI]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5AAcgtMjUI[/video] Peep the double bongo hit, and the hat rolls.

I know exactly what it sounds like. She wanted a 'Rock The Boat' feel. The word you're looking for is called "interpolation".

Again, you didn't sample it, the drum kit your using did. It's not like I'm saying it's bad, or something that's frowned upon, just stating a fact. The kit you used sampled those hits, therefor, it's sampled. I'm not saying you were like "Fuck Aaliyah, Imma sample this", if that's what the person you made the beat for wanted, it's all good.

Some producers play instruments and/or work with musicians. Some of us don't just use drum kits to compose our work. You assumed I used a drum kit but couldn't have been anymore wrong. So for the second time, the word you're looking for is interpolation

You can look at my avy. That's apart of my setup.
Whaddup! been a while since I visited this place, just wondering if anyone has any spare beat or just a link to some nice beat that I can spit it too, I'm only using it for personal reasons no marketing or youtube!
[media]http://soundcloud.com/fresh-fruits-1/chili[/media] Made a quick little beat. The thread was dropping so low anyway. Drop me some opinions
Thoughts on this? Continue or is it too cheesy? [media]http://soundcloud.com/awesomesaucee/hippity-hop[/media]
[QUOTE=chaz13;36196506]Thoughts on this? Continue or is it too cheesy? [media]http://soundcloud.com/awesomesaucee/hippity-hop[/media][/QUOTE] Quite cheesy, but i enjoy it alot actually, sounds like something lupe would go over would definately continue with that
[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1frRnPO5dQ[/media] Forced myself to sit down and write a beat within roughly 5 hours so I'd actually finish it rather than my usual practice of starting something and the next time I sit down starting something fresh.. First and last hiphop beat I made, 2 years ago.. should I delve into it again?
[QUOTE=Rediscover;35045310][media]http://soundcloud.com/azathoth/maxwell[/media] sup fools[/QUOTE] Holy shit, you're on facepunch? You're like, my #1 inspiration for rap beats. I'm absolute shit at anything rhythmic, but I'm trying. Just because I love your shit so much.
Recent one I did: [video]http://soundcloud.com/vmobeats/too-much-to-forget[/video] One that you guys might enjoy: [video]http://soundcloud.com/vmobeats/vmo-giving-up[/video] [editline]10th June 2012[/editline] one more for the fuck of it: [video]http://soundcloud.com/vmobeats/vmo-spanish[/video]
