How to Make Beats Wrapping the Samples in Sample Flip Beats Remixes
When I make Moody Instrumental Music, sometimes I "sample" or use parts from an existing song or musical piece. My goal in sampling is to take parts from a piece that I love and build a completely different musical piece that leaves the listener saying, "WOW, you got that result from those sampled pieces?!"
The way I do this is by "wrapping" (not rapping) the sample with my own instrumentation. I create different musical patterns with the sampled pieces (called "flipping the sample"). While I flip the samples, I can hear (in my head) all of the instrumentation that I want to wrap the sample pieces in. When i finish the sample flip patterns, I go back and create the instrumentation that I heard (in my head).
In this video, watch how I make a sample flip beat and instrumental music using Propellerhead's Reason software, the Akai MPD32 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard. This video takes you into my thought process about sampling, "chopping and flipping" samples, and I give you tips on how to make music.
This video catches me on one of my "happier" days, in which my overall "moody-ness" level was low. Plus, I had just finished downing a can of Mountain Dew. So, I'm a bit more animated in this video.
