@artisanaljuice Either the drums are too loud or should be dead centre in the mix. I like the idea though, I tried it myself once and got much worse results. Also that sample has had quite some mileage to it, just saying.

@Matt-D You were always nice with the synths, but this one is something else... love all the layering and everything meshes together well.

Here's a little beat I worked on last month, my first time putting the main sample directly into the FL playlist rather than in FPC...

Little something I made, just messing around. I don't like it myself, but what do you think.
 
@artisanaljuice such a cool beat, I really dig the snare heavy beats, I'm actually really terrible at them myself but you crushed it. How'd you put that together if I may ask? Short version haha

I put together this idea today. Let me know what you think. Still new to mixing and stuff so let me know if something is glaringly bad to you because I have no idea haha

Thanks for the feedback. Your beat was dope, crisp drums (good amount of compression / EQ), love the mysterious vibe.

@DJ Excellence love that old school vibe and the drums are on point.
@artisanaljuice love the uniqueness of the drums but that drop was on point! I honestly did not expect that which is why I like it so much.
Here is mine for the week off my instrumental album I just released

@RhetroChips Definitely needs a good amount of work on the mix. But I enjoyed what you did besides that. Very creative in my opinion.

@BeatMaker80 I'm sorry but I just was not feeling this at all. Keep learning and elevating though!

@Drago Zetić This was awesome. Loved what you did here. Nothing much to say except thank you for sharing it!

Check me out?

Like the drum track? I chopped several drum breaks into 4 or 8 bar loops, time stretched all those to the same bpm, then chopped all those breaks into quarter notes. I assigned those bits to different pads on my mpc and just jammed til I came up with something I liked.

I feel you @Johni Cleveland, wasn't really feeling it myself and I made it, but if you got a second what specifically didn't you like about it?What I focus mainly on a lot of my beats are the mixes, appreciate your time.

Nice, has an R&B feel to it, I hear like a Jill Scott or Erykah Badu on it, love the vibe, nice work on the finger drumming too, but the second part of the beat was a little off, didn't know where you where going with that, but the first and third where excellent, keep doing what you do✌

@Drago Zetić I'm feelin that sample a whole lot especially the flute. I also love the subtle drums you laid on this beat really gives a nice touch.
@BeatMaker80 it wasn't that bad, I think the sound and melody you used for the intro has potential. If you lace it right I think it could be something someone can use. The second beat was much better, is that a new edition sample? I'm wondering because when I heard the drums I was like it sounds like something New Edition would get on then when the sample came in the voice sounded like Ralph Tresvant's voice, just curious. But sounds good to me so do the levels.
@Johni Cleveland what I like most about your videos is how fun you make it look, that's what it's about for me. Also great samples, good drums, and nice setup.
 
@beatmaker I like this one better, more creative. The bass drum isnt boomy enough though, it's kind of slappy, see if you can get it to hit harder. Maybe try some automation like some filter sweeps and stuff too, add a little movement to it, but I dig the idea for sure

Let me know any technical things you guys would do different. Still trying to learn even the basics
