The Making of A New Day

In this "The Making of" Video, I am using the Akai MPD32 to trigger sounds in Propellerhead Reason to "flip a sample" Watch how I flip the sample to create different patterns.

I use the M-Audio Oxygen 8 to play the piano parts and then arrange everything to create music with my signature sound and "bounce" groove.

Check out the TaurusBeats Beat Tutorials to Learn How To Make Beats In Reason With MPD32 and Oxygen8.

What I call a Sample Flip Beat is a more than a beat. It is music with a rearranged sample wrapperd in rich instrumentation to create a totally different artistic expression and experience.

This is... A New Day. 

The Story Behind This Video

In this video, I'm showcasing another one of my Moody Instrumental Music creations - "A New Day" - a beat I made using Propellerhead Reason. Watch how I flip the sample and add my instrumentation to create this smoooth jazz, piano instrumental song.

This is one of the first videos I created aposted to Youtube showing how I make moody instrumental music and sample flip beats. i made the recording with my Canon A510 digital camera in 2009.

Back then, I made videos that only focused on certain parts of the beat, or music, I was creating. in this video, I show the actual sample flip patterns I created using the Akai MPD32 to trigger sounds in Propellerhead Reason NNXT Advanced Sampler and DrRex devices

It wasn;t until much later, when I started getting requests and questions from people, that I started making beat tutorial videos that not only show how I make moody instrumental music and sample flip beats, but also explain what I do and why  with much detail.
