Hello Fellow Producers,
This is just going to be a quick tip for a great way to get the most out of your sound kits when making beats and producing tracks. Most sound kits come in a format where the sounds are put in folders by song or song packs I like to call them. Meaning they put all of the elements to one beat in a folder. You will normally find some sort of drums, strings, synth, piano, or pad etc. etc. Well that can work OK but at the same time another producer could buy that kit and produce the exact same beat, and also if you want to ad those new sounds to current beats you are working on you have to hop from folder to folder to find the right bass , or the right synth.
Once you download the kit make folders and name them by instrument IE: Bass Folder, Drums Folder, Synth Folder etc. Then take a couple hours and place the correlating sound from each “song pack” into the sound based folders. This makes way easier to find that perfect bass loop for a track your working on, or if you need a tight drum roll you can just go to the drumroll folder and pick one of the many. As you download and buy more sound kits if you keep doing this, before you know it you will never get stuck on a beat again. This makes it 10 times easier and quicker to find the right sound. Next post i will go over how i use this method in Reason/Record and also how to make templates for quick and easy beat making.
Thanks for Reading,
