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
