Be Encouraged

“The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, 'O God, forgive me,' or 'Help me.'” –Billy Graham

“Remember who you are. Don't compromise for anyone, for any reason. You are a child of the Almighty God. Live that truth.” –Lysa Terkeurst

“Just know, when you truly want success, you'll never give up on it. No matter how bad the situation may get.” – Unknown

The Story

Hip Hop Sample Flip Beat, Funk Groove for Story Rap or Video

This is one of the sample flip beats in my latest Moody instruMental Music collection "Stirred Not Shaken".

I just wanted to transform the sample into moody instrumental music. The challenge was the original sample selction had no drums, but there was a defined rhythm with a bass-like stringed instrument.

My primary focus was on the vocal part of the sample. I keyed off of the changes in the notes the vocalist sang. I made my sample flip patterns by focusing on the rhytm I wanted in my final beat.

Watch me flip the sample and then add the piano parts and the rest of the instrumentation.

Make Beats with Reason: "Polished" 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. I'm showing you how to make Moody instruMental Music using Reason as I create another one of my Moody instruMental Music creations - "Polished".

Thank you for your support.

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

Grace and Peace!
