A quick and easy formula to slay beat block!!
- Open up your favorite VST
- Open the piano roll.
- Turn the metronome on
- Start dragging out random notes on the piano roll.
- Create a melody that sounds at least halfway decent.
- Open up GrossBeat or some type of Effect VST
- Effect the melody you made to make it glitch.
- Clone the vst channel you made
- change the sound of the cloned track
- delete some of the notes of the cloned track to give it variance
- take the cloned track up or down an octave to separate the frequencies
- spice up the cloned track in little ways
- an added note or removed here and there
- keep cycling through sounds on the cloned track until you find a voicing you really like
- Get a melody going that has it's own rhythm without any drums at all
- place certain strong notes or hits only on the down beats
- counter that with other melodies that are more active
- keep building the groove until you are satisfied with how the melody sounds - with NO drums added
- then when you are done with the melody section, start adding percussions
- do not add kicks or snares yet
- add those absolutely last
- add percussion sounds and effect type sounds on top of your melody
- keep adding until you have a super dope sounding beat
Hope this helps you.
Just keep on makin those beats. dont give up
you CAN get out of that funk! YOU CAN DO IT!!
