Short Vid Longer vids coming soon. Visit http for links to sites with the hottest deals on studio equipment THEPLATINUM-HIT PRODUCER MPC2500 has set the industry benchmark for beat production.

A beat I made using a sample requested by @CiseDj. Beat samples “She” by Harold Mabern. Make sure to listen to the finished beat at the end to hear tweaks and changes that I couldn’t fit into the video. Main changes were to the bass line in a couple sequences. Had to move some notes around and fine tune some notes. Also adjusted some of the sample layers. Check out my website hellfirebeats.com for more beats and info.

    Very true ! Playing with samples is like playing a video game or something ! You could come up with some cool shit but you can’t take credit for it !!! if you ask me its no different than d.j.ing ….mixing up other ppls tunes !

    what if you want to create beats from scratch? is this the right type of equipment for that? I have sounds in my head that i want to get out, not necessarily samples, what is the best way of going about creating your own sounds?

    ive made beats with all diff types of shit – reason,fruity loops,mpc,mv8800 – still trying to figure out which is best for me – i like your method of making beats – your on point with it – beats are tight.

    Killing it on this one! What technique do you use to chop up your samples? Is it auto-chop? Are you trimming them to to the beat?

    It’s a JJOS feature. You just make a bitmap image and drop it on your CF card. When the machine loads up, it sees the image and displays it!
