I am often looking to make a certain style of beat, in example I’m looking for crate digger hip-hop or I'm looking for a trap beat. I want to use a bomb squad sample but I don’t want to bite off the beat and just transpose it. I can take pieces of the beat and map them to Kong. This is a bookmark on how to do that. I call it a bookmark because I don't consider this to be a tutorial. There are many tutorials out there. What I've been looking for is smaller so for now I'm just going to call it a bookmark.
When I use to do coding we would call small blocks of code "snippets". So I kind of think as my bookmarks as tutorial "snippets". Partly because I often am so busy I forget a specific thing that I want to do and I will be writing music in a certain way and then I want to do something a little different but I since it's been like months and months since I had a chance to do it another way I like to have bookmarks to come back to it. I also like to keep things short and sweet.
In any case here is an example of just taking a sample from the Reason factory sound bank and mapping it to Kong.
In this video we are creating the start of a ringtone for upload to Zedge.net. I have been working on creating ringtones with a variety of Synths. In this case I am using a synth by Ochen K. I find this chip synth to be pretty cool myself. You can watch the video below. We will be publishing the rintone on our site later this week.
