This is my flip for a challenge on FutureProducers.com. The challenge was that the samples were provided 'already chopped'. Everyone flipped the same chopped samples in some very different ways. Check it out here.

In this video, I show how I check bass lines I originally create in the Subtractor device, using a piano in the NNXT device. This allows me to hear the actual notes I played in a clearer fashion and make necessary corrections.

I made this video showing an example of how I use the piano to check my bass lines. I use this same technique with samples when I do sample flip beats. Even though I'm using Reason, this technique can be used in any DAW.

Soul On Ice Sample Flip Beat Video

I started out with the sample and trying to figure out how I was going to use it. At first, I was going to do a hip-hop track at around 94 beats per minute, but while playing with the sample, I was hearing a faster tempo with a piano solo. So, that moved me into the contemporary jazz genre.

This one is an original. I made the sample flip beat first and added the piano part afterward. What you see in this video is me doing the piano freestyle (improvisation) over the basic sample flip and finger snap. The finger snap serves as the metronome, keeping time for me in the video.
