Free Beat Today…See It Come Together

Posted by Ms.Tris On March - 21 - 2009

Wasn’t supposed to post until Monday…I woke up feeling great and wanted to try something different..
I’m making a Dirty South download for all my emcees that support…I will update this post as I go along..bare with me lol I’m trying to make it happen by noon EST….
1st Step:9:52am
I added some hihats and a snare140 Bpm, the snare are really placed at 70 bpm..check the pic
and snippet:

be back in a few with more 🙂
2nd Step 10: 20 am: I changed the snare to one from my “Mighty Drum Kit. Added 3 kicks and combined to one channel or layered 3 kicks. I added and FPC and selected a random loop then used the Love Philter to put the Ms.Tris ‘stank” on it :-)..I might change this all later…oh I also changed the tempo to 149bpm..

Made the over used dirty south drum pattern lol with a little twist:

it may take me a little longer than noon because I’m doing this post as I go…stay tuned..brb

Step 3. Added A G E chord progression Using an organ vst around 10:45 ish am..
Next I added a simple Chord Progression using A G E triad chords. I added a flanger and chorus.. so I created a fresh sounding organ..nobody has this lol. Many producers have asked me where do I get my synths sounds. I use a lot of vsts, micron, motif or Reason… then added effects to make it
different…

Step 4 Melody 11:12 am

Added an Arp melody…I like it so far..lets see if I keep it.. I will show you a few notes, ..lol remember DON’T STEAL SAMPLE USE anyones melody ;-)…..

now I will work on a bassline and start making my drum pattern breaks etc…brb


Step 5 The Basic Idea is down yaaay..11:48 isham

Bassline idea added , with drum pattern changes and snare rolls..

Remember the snippets are rough copies..Im not really mixing quite yet..starting to adjust kicks a little.. I will export this into Reaper to mix it..
**this is sorta loud** but I had to keep it moving…

ok I must get in the zone again..give me a few for step 6 ..maybe 30 minutes..brb

Step 6: Added another top melody 12:32am ( no pic with this one just sound clip)..heading toward my hook.. for some reason this synth comes in a little late..may have to nudge some notes manually… oh I forgot..I am using a midi controller to play all my sequences.. I’m not drawing in the patterns..except a few of the drums..

Where did the time go lol
Step7: Added an idea for my hook…I’m not quite feeling the sounds here but you get where I am going. Next I would arrange,fix all the notes that are off, and add more drum changes…here is the almost done composition rough mix:

Here is a pic of how it looks:

… this is in real time started around 10am its now 1:30…Doing the beat and tutorial all at once slowed me down a tad bit.. I have run an errand, then I’ll be back to upload a mix good enough to use for a mix cd.. I may even add a hook… 🙂 should be back in about 1 hour and a half with something for you to write too …

……o.K. I’m back..went to the cleaners, redbox, and to get a crabcake mnn.

Step 8: Did a quick arrangement on the beat, and a volume mix

I changed both sounds on the hook, and the organ sound slightly. I arranged the song: Introl Verse Hook/Chorus l verse lHook/Chorusl Verse l Hook/Chorus. I added a few more changes to drums and snare rolls… and
…….that’s as far as I can go before my next session. I would like to add sound fx in and maybe a bridge type transition. The beat is not quite complete, but I’ll bet someone will make a hit!

I had fun doing this, it took longer but you all are very much worth some new things from me… Hope you had fun!

    I love the way you breeze through this beat. Though, I see you took time out to zone out for a melody. So, Im thinking why not program and play an arpeggiator. Would you consider it and maybe do a tutorial-thanks

  3. Evan says:

    I was just wondering where you got the sounds and instruments from

  4. Ms.Tris says:

    Hey Evan .. I have a collection of sounds that I’ve collect over the years from various sources. Some were given to me, some I paid for online like Eastwest etc. Some sounds are vst instruments or Reason sounds that I tweaked. Other than those I use the Motif es Rack and Alesis Micron
