"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.

Even though I'm using Propellerhead Reason to make my Moody instruMental Music creations, you can use my tips and techniques in any DAW to create your own music and make beats.

Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud etc. and I'll see you there! =)

Thank you for your support.

Grace and Peace!

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

"Chill" Original, organic Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James 

Chill is a smooth, laid-back track featuring a lighter piano than I normally do. Think "Art of Noise" on this one.

"Smooth, laid-back, piano instrumental music like Art of Noise."

I wanted something that gradually builds, with a real slow and controlled emotional tug. At the same time, I wanted to still include the beat in such a way that signifies my style - cracking snare and thumping kicks. The drums are more rhythmic with stutter kicks and sychopated percussion elements to enhance the overall movement.

I love playing this track while watching  videos about the universe, space, galaxies, etc.

"Another Kind Of Love" Sample Flip Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

Another Kind Of Love is a bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat. 

"bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flippiano  beat."

This is a bright, upbeat, funky groove sample flip beat that can be used for a television show theme, movie, film, video game, or commercial advertisement. I envisioned this as a film music piece. This short version uses various horn and bass chops of a blue-eyed soul sample.

Great fit: playing this track while driving on long road trips.
