MAKING BEATS: SKILL PACK teaches you how to make infectious modern beats from start to finish using popular beat making software such as Native Instruments Battery, Apple Logic Pro, Steinberg Cubase, Propellerhead ReCycle, Audacity, and others. This book explains the detailed process of beat making, what tools make a beat stand out, and how to use digital audio workstations to develop beats and loops that will make listeners nod their heads. You'll learn to edit, play, sequence, quantize, layer, and mix beats with easily accessible plug-ins within Logic, Cubase, and Reason. You'll discover the uses of opensource software such as Audacity, and find out how to utilize royalty-free drum samples and files from the Internet to assist with the beat making process. You'll find clear instructions on how to set up your software so that it works properly with your MIDI hardware. No stone is left unturned. The established beat making author shares his tips, advice, and personal anecdotes for your benefit. And for a completely immersive, hands-on experience, this book includes a companion website that contains song files for each drum plug-in within each digital audio workstation covered.
