Sorta Off Topic1:Hip Hop Love

Posted by Ms.Tris Beats On May - 7 - 2008ADD COMMENTS

LoL …. Isn’t funny how we become match makers when certain couples get together… I mean entertainers are human and fall in love. Some pop up on the news when they are about to marry after being in a long time relationship. These are people like Toni Braxton, Mary J… they may get a one nighter on shows like TMZ..and America says aaawww that’s so good..She’s/He’s getting married…
Others???… Tabloid paradise. I’m guilty of being in shock a couple times I really know these folks.. I’d be right along with everybody sayin “they just don’t seem like a match”…lol
and the winners are:

Mariah and Nick… :-0

Beyonce and Jay…. I admit they grew on its B-ay Z

Whitney and Bobby

Janet and Jermaine…K they grew on me

The ones who are together.. I’m giving my blessings, and as of today I’m gonna leave any new celebrity couples to be free in love.. 🙂

Reason 3.0 Knockin Kicks?

Posted by Ms.Tris Beats On May - 1 - 20082 COMMENTS

Reason 3.0 Knockin Kick?

The Redrum Connection

Fruityloops Studio Producers Edition has been my weapon of choice for about 4 or 5 yrs. I recently upgraded equipment. I’m not quite into the hardware yet. So far the quality is there, but I am not as quick on hardware as I am software. Today’s tutorial is inspired by How To Beef Up Your Kicks In Fl Studio

You’ll have to sign up to NFX’s site to view this great video.

Always striving for a better mix during the actual production process, this tutorial has me tweaking in all my production software. The technique he gives works great all the way around. I found a way to achieve this in Reason 3.0 while at a friends studio. If you need beginners help starting and creating projects in Reason. Please refer to the Help file located in the top right portion of your Reason software menu.

I Was A Sample Queen…

Posted by Ms.Tris Beats On April - 30 - 20084 COMMENTS

I remember a time when Hiphop was a baby. Back then I had already decided that I wanted to be a star. With rap, that dream seemed one I was able to reach. I started rhyming at a young age. I always loved music and now, destiny had touched me on the shoulder.
I spent years writing notebook after notebook. Studying the great female emcees at the time. I practiced, I rhymed , I recorded songs..always striving to reach “The Industry”. That place never arrived the way I expected.
I had a producer who had his own home studio. We were on the way to that ^place. One day he decided that producing rap music wasn’t right for him. I was left without a producer, but I had something even bigger. I had music inside. I realize now; that year, was a turning point in my life.
Making a long story very short, I bought a small keyboard and began to tinker around. Along with every artist, I thought I made the hottest songs ever created by man One day I’m gonna share some of those lil recordings…
HipHop was flourishing as a full fledge genre. I could only play the keyboard by ear,but that never mattered. My favorite producers at the time Dr.Dre, Rza, Pete Rock,& Havoc all used samples. They were my teachers through sound. Almost every producer/beatmaker mimicked their styles until they created their own. I had no idea that it was against the law to sample. I bought an Asr 10 and started collecting material. I started doing what I heard the big producers do, take a song that you like and make a beat.Today I have over 1400

Some of my collection


Once I started to sample it became a lil more than just me making beats.It’s hard to describe, and I’m sure you’ve heard the term ” The Art Of Sampling”. Some will say what kind of art is in stealing other peoples music? I’d have to respond….” Do you think the average 17 yr old knows the laws of copyrights?” Speaking for myself I didn’t understand or know the laws until 5 yrs into my career. When I first heard about copyright infringement, I was told oh it’s okay to use 13 secs…So I sampled on.This was the main way to make Hiphop for many many years.

Free No Air Snare Kit

Posted by Ms.Tris Beats On April - 28 - 2008ADD COMMENTS

I decided to post up my infamous No Air snare kit. This was made back in 2004. Alot of producers are using it. The idea was to have a crisp snare kit deleting all the air/noise at the end of the wav file, adding a lil eq and volume boosting. I also made a ” Ms.Tris Mighty Drum Kit” I will post the link to that a lil later. You can pick that up from my myspace page or soundclick for now.The drum kit should be used as addition to your arsenal… the main focus was KNOCKIN KICKS…I will explain more on that later when I post the official link here. or

here are the free snares …I am sure you will like these.

Aaah finally a blog world that inspires me to make it happen…back in 2002 I joined the website http://www.rapmusic.comIt was wild and crazy on that producer forum ….and I admit that I learned alot from that wild and crazy crew who posted regularly there.
Years passed and a few us of still keep in touch through websites, emails,and newsletters.
I was a newbie beatmaker then, well not so new to the actual music makin, but new to the technical aspects..there were several producers on that forum that were “sho”-win off. Winning beat battles, posting tons of beats.I remember they always knew about something “new” as far as equipment or web happenings.
When I decided to build my website in 2004 ish.. I thought I’d just jump in there and boom! MsTrisMusic.Com would be up and…what a joke..I am still building the site to this date… I decided to blog in 2005…then the opp came to work on film sets…12 hr days? =not much time to write….Sooooo

After about 4 yrs of designing and changing…. grand opening and grand closing…lol last month
I happened to be visiting the site of one of my Rapmusic mentors Sho-Down.
This guy never ceases to amaze me..His beats are great and he was one of the first producers I knew that had a membership website that actually had active members! WHoa!
When I arrived at his site, I was blown away..I loved it. I did some research and here I am today wordpressin on..yaaaaay.. so Thanks to Sho-Down who turned me in the right direction to get my blog life breathing again!~
Check out his site and leave him some comments network network!


Thank again Sho-Down!
