Here is an OVERVIEW VIDEO covering the beat we made in this podcast episode. Make sure to listen to the podcast episode to learn how the beat was put together:

I always talk to you about the two ways to make a beat.. that is Original Compositions and Sampling.

Also, this episode is the first episode at 256Kbps for better audio quality when hearing the different frequencies better when making a beat. Episodes are regularly at 128Kbps to make the file size smaller, but I noticed at 128Kbps the hi-hat sounded significantly degraded.. I hope you enjoy this episode!

In this beat, we make a beat from scratch! I personally like making Original Compositions because they are 100% your own copyright, and I really like finding different melodies that compliment each other, and that suit the drum loop it self.

Everything you heard was live as I recorded this episode. I edited up the audio to give you the best listening experience, and tried to lower volumes when talking so you can understand what’s going on.

Listen carefully as I pick through the drum samples, and finally decide on the 3 drum samples which I clearly play for you to hear how different they sounded… One had a nice low-end (could potentially make mixing harder)..

Also notice how powerful the layered snares were after turning them down in volume! That drum loop was SO FULL.. and it only had 7 SOUNDS USED!

Again, the Xclusive-Audio Drum Bundle TRIO sounds are available on my website!

But the best way to purchase them is through my SAFE SPOTS Bundle.. You receive my SAFE SPOTS Book, Course, and the Xclusive-Audio Drum Bundle TRIO sounds, which are used all throughout my SAFE SPOTS drum loop training curriculum.

These are the drum samples I recommend to my students. I use them often in my courses. They offer VARIETY and QUALITY, are 24-Bit .WAV, and contain over 2,300 drum samples!

Finally, if you’d like me to teach you how to make beats like you heard in this episode, then definitely check out GratuiTous’ FL Studio course membership! There’s over 26 FL Studio courses, teaching you how to use your DAW and how to make a beat.
