  • This is how you can make a beat  

    First things first. Pick drum drum sounds and use the music theory

    we've shown to put your beat to a universal grid.

  • Arranging the Beat  

    Now that you have your 8 bar loop created we need

    Arrange it so that a rapper can rap over it

  • Rough mix  

    After arranging the beat the track needs to have a rough mix before

    you send to a rapper or writer


    Down load the the panning chart to give you ideas on where

    to put the sounds in the mix (somethings you'll want left, some right

    and some right up the middle)

  • Tracking the vocal  

    Now that the rapper has written to the beat you've made

    it's time to record their lyrics


    We'll show you how to set up your mic, record your vocal &

    do over dubs


    If you need assistance with tracking a vocal or getting a rapper ready to

    record and you feel they need it here are some sources you can contact.

  • Re-do's  

    You may love your vocals the way they were done on the day of tracking.

    However, sometimes when you wake up the next day your vocals just dont

    make you happy anymore. This is common. Just go back and touch up

    the parts of the vocal you don't like.

  • Mixing the entire track  

    Happy with vocals? If not just go back and watch the previous video again.

    If you are happy then let's mix the vocals and the track together to make

    a song

  • Mastering  

    You've made it this far?!?!

    Congrats! A lot of beats don't make it this far.

    A lot of beats sit on hard drives for years because

    the producer has no idea how to finish them. If you know

    someone who is like this send them to simpliv.com :)


    Mastering is the final touches of a song.
