As a producer myself I find it exciting learning new tips and tricks, and also hearing other producer’s ideas on how they build hip hop instrumentals. A lot of these guys do inspire me, and I’ve been told I inspire them as well; which is great! 🙂
When I was just starting to produce rap beats I bought an MPD 18. It was a little drum machine that can also sample sounds and save them on each pad. On this drum machine, you can only do that in conjunction with an Audio Interface Software such as FL Studio or Reason. After I got frustrated with the limitation of my MPD 18, I advanced to the MPD 32.
I was excited with all the cool things I could do with it! And then When I switch to the MPC serious I damn near lost my mind! Fell deeply in love with producing hip hop sounds. That’s when I sparked the debate MPD VS. MPC sampler and drum machine. The response was crazy on social media.
Any how I have been getting a lot of questions concerning different samplers and drum machines (Midi Pad Controllers), from up and coming music producers want to know the difference between them all and which ones create the best sounds. lol I know funny right? Which one’s create the best sounds, but it’s true they do ask that. In a previous article Music Production Advice For Beginners I outlined the different midi pads and samplers you can get for an affordable price. Below I have uploaded a video from producer TCustumz from tcustumz.com who we have posted on this site many other times, because he provides great producer tutorials and tips. He talks about sampling with the MPD32 vs. the MPK49.
For all you new hip hop producers listen up and take notes. You’ll love this one. Make sure you leave a comment or join the conversation on social media.
