Not By Sight - Life Story Music

2 Corinthians 5:7
New International Version (NIV)
For we live by faith, not by sight.

"Not By Sight"

From the "Vision" collection

This piano freestyle (improvisation) is my expression of my thoughts and feelings about living through the loss of my eyesight. In Christ, I have peace that I nevera had before, even in the midst of trouble.

Inspiration is what you are watching in this video. The Strong Creator God is inspiring me to play the piano parts without any prior rehearsal.

I am amazed each time I watch this video because I know how limited I am. I don't play piano and I cannot go back and perform these piano parts. I started making these video recordings to capture what happens when I am "in the zone" - what I call the Grace and Peace Zone.

I cannot fully explain the experiences of creating the music with all of the instrumentation and its arrangement.I praise God for the experience of knowing Him through music in this way. He uses my limited abilities and reveals His power to inspire far beyond what I can imagine.

Teach Yourself Piano

i received the following message from one of my followers about learning how to play piano. Check it out. Then, find out why I stress this point: Teach yourself piano!

Message from my follower:

Sup Taurus,

I've tried teaching myself keys a few times...I don't know if it's that I don't have the patience, or maybe i've approached it wrong, or it could be that i wasn't inspired by my old yamaha keyboard with mid size keys, but I never got anywhere with it.

Even though there are many keyboard/piano tutorials on youtube, I think it'd be fresh if you could do a vid talking about the approach you took to teach yourself. Like how did you learn scales? What would your practicing consist of? Did you learn on that 25key jawn!? Anyway, I think cats would appreciate something like this. I know I would.

Peace

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.

How To Make Drum Tracks While Making Beats Using Reason

Learning how to Make Drum Tracks While Making Beats is a basic skill that you must master as a music producer. Hip-Hop music producers, especially, have to master different ways of laying drums and manipulating drum tracks in order to get the right motion and feel for the music style they want to create when they make beats. Using Propellerhead Reason music making software and my Akai MPD32, I make beats and Moody instruMental Music, and I have learned how to make drum tracks while making beats.

Here is a message from one of my subscribers asking for pointers on the subject of laying drums in Reason while using the Akai MPD32:

My name is Fernando and I've been watching your videos for awhile now, and they've been helpful. I could see and hear that your a lover of soulful music and so I am. I'm new to beat making and I'm just starting out. I also have an Akai mpd32 and the machine is amazing. I can assign the samples to the pad, the only thing that is giving me trouble is laying drums over it. I forget to mention that I'm using Reason 4.0. I have the creativity, the only thing that is holding me back is the technical side. If you have time can you give me a few pointers on what you do, that would be helpful thanks.

I also wanted to point out in one of your videos I thought I seen a Wayne Grudem 'Systematic Theology' book. If it is, its a good read. I'm also a Born Again Christian, so other then music we also share something, and its the Love for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Do you also listen to Christian hip-hop? (Shai linne, Flame, Steven the Levite, Timothy Brindle, etc) I hope to hear from you soon.

Grace & peace,

Fernando

How To Chop Samples with ReCycle and Make Beats Using Reason

Learning how to Chop Samples with Propellerhead ReCycle and Make Beats Using PropellerheadReason can be difficult if you are just starting out as a music producer. Beginners often find that learning how to chop and flip samples to be overwhelming because there is no single, right way to do it. For example, Hip-Hop music producers and beat makers have many different ways of chopping samples and manipulating sample slices in order to get the right fit and feel for the music style they want to create when they make beats. Determining what to use to chop samples, HOW to chop samples, and WHAT software or hardware to use to flip samplesm all depends on the music producer.

Noise Is Good

Learning how to Chop Samples with ReCycle and Make Beats Using Reason can be difficult if you are just starting out as a music producer. Hip-Hop music producers and beat makers have different ways of chopping samples and manipulating sample slices in order to get the right fit and feel for the music style they want to create when they make beats. Using Propellerhead Recycle, Reason music making software and my Akai MPD32, I chop samples and make sample flip beats and Moody instruMental Music, and I have learned how to chop samples with ReCycle while making beats in Reason.

Here is a message from one of my subscribers asking for pointers on the subject of chopping samples in Recycle and using Reason to make beats:

I'm a big fan of your beats man and I've been watching all your videos here on youtube and I use them as motivation. I've just started making beats and I use pretty much the same gear and software you do. I have a question for you though and I hope you can help. When I chop samples with recycle I always get this noise at the end of every chop almost like an echo noise so I was just wondering if you know a way to remove that noise because I noticed your samples don't have that noise?!? Also for the bass which one of the Reason applications do you use? I hope u can help! Thanks in Advance.

I like what your doing with Reason along with the MPD32.

I've been working with Pro Tools for a while and I recently got interested in making beats and purchased Reason which is very user friendly.

How To Use MPD32 to Trigger Sample in Reason Like MPC

Question from a Subscriber:

Hey, wsup man. I really apprecilove what you are doing man. We need more people like you in the world, that are willing to share the knowledge to enhance people power.

After watching ur videos it really inspired me to get into this producing , because i went to school for sound engineering and tried to get in the industry, but i realized i can just do my own thing and let the industry come to me.

I needed some help with getting my samples to record on reason. I am using the nnxt advanced sampler. For my drum pad i use the Trigger finger and for the keyes i have the oxygen 8.

When i trigger the sample how do I get the sample to play, cause when i trigger the sample i have to hold the pad down for the whole sample to play.

I been tryin to figure that out for like 1 month now. If you can help me it would be greatly appreciloved. Thanks Brotha

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 am using the AKAI MPD32 USB/MIDI PAD CONTROLLER to trigger sounds in Propellerhead Reason devices while making the track "New Life". I am really hyped up about this track because of the ending. No matter when I play this one, the orchestration in the ending always hypes me up.

Here's another one for the Bad Bull Beats collection. I used a sample from the Marvin Gaye/Diana Ross track, "Stop, Look, Listen". I started out with a Hip-Hop track in mind, but it quickly changed into a nice R&B dance track as I kept pulling other sounds from the sample.

This sample flip beat features my "bouncy style of sample flipping, where I do a lot more rythmically with the sample chops/slices. I composed all of the other instrumentation around the sample flip to make a dynamic beat. You really have to gear the end o this one.

Watching the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States, I was moved by the scene in Washington, DC, on The Mall and the US Capitol grounds. The words "A New Day" came to my mind as I watched the people standing, waiting in the cold to hear their President...Our President, Barack Obama.

Here's a track you can groove to in celebration of our new President, President Obama, and "A New Day" in the history of our country.

Common's classic Hip-Hop track, "I Used To Love Her", is still one of the best Hip-Hop tracks ever!

Here's my sample flip beat made from that famous George Benson sample.

In this sample flip beat, the actual sample slips are primarily highlighted in the verses. The choppy rearrangement of the guitar sample slices is intentional and goes well with the bounce in this laid-back beat. I added string instrumentation in the later parts of the beat for emphasis.

I wanted to keep some of the sample familiar, but I didn't want this to be just another re-ue of the sample the way it is in Common's track.

I use Propellerhead Reason to make sample flip beats - sample flipping. This is How I Reason - #howireason.

Lisa Fischer killed the original song and I fell in love with her the first time I heard her on that track (especially that long high note riff she does near the end - wow).

I still love the track to this day so I combined my "Moody instruMental" flavor to Lisa's track and came up with this.

This is one of my "epic tracks" that I use for reflection and thinking.

Listen and Enjoy!

I'm in a hurry now to get these beats posted because I start my first class in seminary Monday, January 12th. So, yeah, I'll be preoccupied with some major reading. But the Moody instruMental Music will still make it's way to TAURUSBEATS.COM.

This one is dedicated to my man, Icy Lee from the GPC (General Population). Congrats on that Lt. Colonel promotion, bruh! Keep Rollin'!!!
