You know I’m a fan of Boon Doc’s Beats and videos. He’s gotten some new additions to his lab. In this one he steps away from the norm and gets into a real rock type track. He’s not using the mpc1000. He’s using the Akai Mpd and Logic Pro to cook up a hot one. I’m loving how true the instruments sound coming out of Logic. I know Just Blaze uses the program as well. If you are using Logic Pro hit me up with some links below, I’d like to hear your work….Enjoy…

Quick Update: Be Back Next Week

Posted by Ms.Tris Beats On January - 21 - 2010ADD COMMENTS

Hey all! I am in here setting up my new pc… I didn’t plan to have this comp, but my friend doesn’t like the touch screen. I will surely take it because I really did need to update. Its the HP Touch Smart 300.

At first I didn’t know if it would work, but I am making it happen. I will finally be going all digital as far as mixers. I’ve connected the Edirol M-16DX as the only soundcard. We’ll see how it goes. I’m gonna be rolling hard so I can sell beats to pay for this beauty lol…

I’ve also been starting to train my little puppy. She is adorable, and TINY 2.6 lbs. She’s a good puppy and really smart, so shes not difficult to work into our home…well at least not for the humans 🙂 The kitten is still saying “take her back” lol

Along with the above, preparing for a session with Alicia Keys percussionist, Pablo Baptista . He’s producing the official Latin Mix of ” I Dance”, the gospel song I did with Karen Domino White. You know I’m feeling great about all this right ? 🙂

I’ll log on for live in about an hour through meebo:

Just make a user name and type your message in the box
I should be able to stay on a good while using my cell and pc today and some tomorrow. If I don’t answer right away I’ll get back to you as soon as possible…

Please Help Haiti

Posted by Ms.Tris Beats On January - 14 - 2010ADD COMMENTS

Here are two trusted places where you can help the country of Haiti:

Text “Haiti” to 90999 to donate. 100% of your $10 donation passes thru to @RedCross for Haiti relief. Your cell carrier keeps nothing.

Excerpts from Wyclef’s statement taken from the website:

“Haiti today faced a natural disaster of unprecedented proportion, an earthquake unlike anything the country has ever experienced.

The magnitude 7.0 earthquake – and several very strong aftershocks – struck only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince……

…..Many people have already reached out to see what they can do right now. We are asking those interested to please do one of two things: Either you can use your cell phone to text “Yele” to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill), or you can click here to DONATE.

Thank you,

Even 5$ can help make a difference..

Happy is freezing cold here on the east coast…bundle up well, if you are here and need to go outside…

I am about to load up the “BMore” page over the next few months with music sites and happenings from our city. I’ve mentioned a few before. Now that most are at least a year old and well established, it’s time to roll out the Baltimore Music Red Carpet 🙂

AllBMOREHIPHOP.COM is home of tons of great Baltimore hip hop and R&B. Established by Architects Recording Studio in 2009, ABHH will load your ipod with some of the hottest HipHop from our city.

I don’t know any other sites that boast over 100 local artist with mixtapes to download. With recent additions of interviews and music videos, ALLBMOREHIPHOP is paving the way for major internet marketing for years to come.

I have worked with many of the artist showcased, but I am finding new music and hot emcees every week there. What a wonderful idea to introduce Baltimore HipHop to the world!

Beat Thang Virtual

Posted by Ms.Tris Beats On January - 7 - 20102 COMMENTS

Afternoon All… What’s new with you? What projects and beats have you got started to kick off 2010?
You all know me I’m always working on something. Today I had a session with a producer and guitarist. Guess what? The guitarist is willing to give me a few lessons… woo hoo!

I mention the Beat Kangs “Beat Thing” a few months ago here:
Beat Thang

I’ve been recently getting emails about the virtual software version. RocWilder is backing this heavy. I know I’ll wind up buying this soon being that it has a reasonable price of 149.00 USD. Looks like it may be easier to get beats out on this than many other software music apps. I’d like to have for that purpose alone, in addition to my current gear. *Note* It is NOT a plug-in vst, it’s a stand alone software.

Let’s start our first post of the year checking out the Beat Thang Virtual goodies 🙂
