How To Make Sample Beats Using Reason 4 And Akai MPD32

From Subscriber:

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.

I'm kind of having trouble with sampling and I was wondering how you set the MPD32 pads to trigger and work for Reason NN-XT, if you could please get back to me as soon as possible I would greatly appreciate it.

Sunny Days

Piano Instrumental Music, Hip Hop, Original Music

Sunny Days is another one of my piano experiments in making moody instrumental music. (I should just call it piano music, but I'm still working on the whole piano-playing thing.)

My music compositions process was pretty much the same as always. First, I constructed the beat. Then, I developed a chord progression and bass line. Next, I developed melodies through piano improvisation. Finally, I wrapped the whole thing with orchestral instrumentation.

The final result of this piano-featured instrumental music reminds me of an interesting cross between part of the "Sesame Street" theme song and "Can You Stand The Rain" by New Edition (produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis).

My Favorite Part is the piano. The different expressions I came up with in the two verses are pretty cool, and the way I changed the mood in each verse is nice, too. Like a lot of my moody instrumental music, this song has a big ending that contrasts the beginning verse. You gotta listen to the whole song to get the changes.

I named this song "Sunny Days" because the music reminds me that storms and cloudy days don't last forever. I want to encourage people who listen to this moody instrumental to really appreciate the sunny days in life. Troubles don't last always. Dark storms give way to "Sunny Days".

Thorns

This is one of my experimental piano/orchestrated tracks with more of a soulful sorrow that moves to a bit of brightness toward the end.

As much as they hurt, the thorns in my life remind me that I am still feeling.

Diary

Okay, Diary is a break from the concept of this collection because it does not have the same beat or beat structure as other songs in the collection. This is one of those "spur-of-the-moment" tracks that I created after hearing the original by Alicia Keys. I just wanted to see if I could lay some of my own keys on the track.

Hey, if I don't do these experimental piano beats, I'll never find out what I can do.
