"Opus" epic Sample Flip Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

This is one of the sample flip beats in my latest Moody instruMental Music collection "CMA Beats" available for you to download here at TaurusBeats.com.

For this sample flip beat, I'm using Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a controller to trigger all instrument sounds in Reason. Be sure to check out my Reason Beat Making Video Tutorials, where I show you how to make Moody instruMental Music and sample flip beats.

SAMPLE FACTS

From the 1976 album LEFTOVERTURE.

Actually the full title of this song is "Magnum Opus a.Father Padilla Meets The Perfect Gnat b.Howling At The Moon c.Man Overboard d.Industry On Parade e.Release The Beavers f.Gnat Attack".

It is a collection of leftover bits and pieces from both Walsh and Livgren that were cut and pasted together to make this song. The original title was "Leftoverture", but Dave Hope suggested that would be a better name for the album. When Wally Gold the bands manager, suggested Magnum Opus for the song, the switch was made.

All the members were given writing credits.

Steve Walsh - Lead Vocals, Keyboards, Vibraphone, Percussion
Kerry Livgren - Guitars, Keyboards
Dave Hope - Bass
Phil Ehart - Drums, Tympani
Rich Williams - Guitars
Robby Steinhardt - Violin

Reason - WAV sample slicing tutorial with NN-XT

Question from a subscriber:

Here is a nice and simple tutorial I found on how to slice WAV / AIF samples in Propellerheads Reason NN-XT advanced sampler, when you don't have Recycle. Requires Reason 2.0 and higher.

Again, this is a good tutorial on how to "chop samples" inside Reason's NN-XT - no external editor is used in this example. All "chops" are done on Reason!

This may be a little advanced for complete newbies, but follow along and you will be ahead of the game in using the feature-rich Reason NN-XT advanced sampler.

The Delivery

"The Delivery" Film Music Soundtrack - Moody Instrumental Music by Taurus M. James

The Delivery is a dark, eerie scary movie music piece. 

"dark, eerie scary movie music piece"

This is a dark, eerie scary movie music piece that can be used for a television show theme, movie, film, video game, or commercial advertisement. I envisioned this as a film music piece for a scary movie or horror flick. This short drum-less piece uses sparseness and intentional broken riffs to heighten anticipation and uneasiness while focusing the listener on an eerie melody.

Great fit: playing this track while watching dark videos or images - or movies like Underworld or Batman.

Welcome Back (Piano)

Dark, dramatic music piece with heavy orchestration featuring piano.

"Welcome Back" Piano - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

Welcome Back (Piano) is a dark, dramatic music piece with heavy orchestration featuring piano. 

"dark, dramatic music piece with heavy orchestration featuring piano."

This is a heavy instrumental music piece that can be used for a television show theme, movie, film video game, or commercial advertisement. I envisioned this as a TV Drama theme song. This shorter version is drumless and focuses the listener on the piano theme, using supporting percussion.

Great fit: playing this track while watching dark videos or images - like Underworld, Gotham or Batman.

There's hardware music creation tools, then there's the Roland TR-808. Easily one of the most beloved instruments ever created. This machine is the foundation of many musical genres and is as sought after today, as it was when it was first created. This week, the good people of CMA show their appreciation to the classic drum machine that gave us the boom.
