Do you feel like there's any mandatory aspects for all beats, apart from a main melody and drums?

I recently started to make beats, it's not really my first time and I have some bases and basic knowledge but now I'm really diving into it. I'm having one issue: Usually, I'm able to come up with a melody and drums, add effects, eq, etc. I work mostly with Analog Lab, stock plugins and drum packs. But then, sometimes, after the main melody and even some extra melodies and drums, even tho the beat could stay like that after the arrangement I often feel like I could add a lot more to spice things up but I just can't really come up with shit. Maybe you gonna say theres no rules when it comes to ..read more

Pretty much there's this rapper I like called Deca and he makes beats where he finds something whether it be a song or someone literally talking and he cuts it up to make a completely new beat, I dont want a tutorial on how to find a song then get a loop and repeat it cause thats overdone and uninteresting *imo* theres 2 examples that I have from him that I wanna learn (can't post link cause dumb autobot) In Hope Turns to Doubt he said that his goal was to make the original song (Heather by Billy Cobham) unrecognisable and tbh it worked In War it sounds like he took some vocal sample and chan ..read more

Feeling stuck

I am feeling stuck in my learning process. I keep making the same chords, the same drum patterns and I have no idea what to do. Every time I do FL I don't know how to make something new. Please recommend some great materials, books, videos, webpages or whatever. I want to get more into music theory and just overall what can help. Thank you! Also trying to pick up the piano on my own. Going well, kind of so if you have any help on picking the piano on my own then I would greatly appreciate it. submitted by /u/SickGuitarRiff [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

What strategy helped you gain traction?

What are some strategies that helped you gain traction, for example a high sub count on YouTube or followers on IG? One strategy that I see often recommended, is to make a type beat channel and focusing on 1 artist with one secondary artist. For example, Drake type beats and then as secondary option Drake x Future type beats. This seems very unfulfilling to me. It might work but who wants to make one type of beat til the end of times. Seems to work for some people tho because it comes up often. The other route I see, is the tutorial people or the performance people. You either teach others ho ..read more

Can anyone help me choose a beat type niche? Maybe i'm already on wrong way?

So...I started YT channel about a month ago and post 6 times a week. What type beat is it - for myself I explained that it is something like phonk, with my interpretation. BUT, any times when I typed “phonk type beat” into YT search, I discovered that it means so much... a lot of videos with schoolchildren streams and other unrelated things come across this tag. So I'm completely confused. Maybe you have some ideas what type is it? I was trying to get away from that mainstream cowbell-drift sound and do something of my own. I make things like "west-coast phonk", "hard\dark phonk", and "chill ..read more

What social media platforms are you active on most to least and what specific niche(s) you have. I am asking because I'm not surrounded by people in my age group who are social media savvy and/or are musicians. I asked on another subreddit but got little to no engagement.

Does the collab call post still exist? I'm working on a project and need a few mcs. I also don't want to post every single beat for the project. What do other producers do to link up with MCs to work with? submitted by /u/Redd_Sixx [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I’ve recently just gotten into learning production, and I’m having a blast with it. I learned the piano for 8 years as a kid but I stopped for years stupidly, recently picked it up and I’m going well on it which helps. The theory stuff is hard to pick up unfortunately though, thankfully don’t need that much for hiphop production. Last few years I’ve been messing around with my friend who raps and produces for himself, and I had a lot of fun just smoking or drinking and vibing out to shit together. I’d come up with a lot of cool melodies and ideas but had no idea how to use a DAW so I just tol ..read more
