This beat was by far the largest beat i have had to make during this class but i personally love Ariana Grande so it wasn't to bad make. This beat we had to add a beat while she was singing and a beat for when the chorus was playing which was brand new for me. I also had to find a bunch of loops that worked with her voice and her voice was kind of making a mode already. I learned in this beat how to use the loops and make them work when someone is singing which is a big skill to know in beat making. I also found a bunch of new loops that I didn't know existed because of the length of this song.
This beat is called the four measure changes. This was my second favorite beat to make during this class because I just love how clean it looks on the beat and I also love how clean it sounds. This was another beat that we had to use a mode for it and i used Aeolian mode. I feel like the mode that i used really was the correct mode that fight the song perfectly. This beat I learned how to fit the right mode with the beat i made to make it give off the right vibe i was going for. Yet again in this beat I used the piano and the drum beat maker to help make my beat sound the best it could and meet the requirements that the teach had set. This was the beat where i learned how to divide up a loop and also to merge the regions of the loop.
This is the Modal beat which was the first beat that we used the synth feature which is a very cool feature. I had a lot of fun making this beat because the whole time it felt like i was playing a real piano and playing different chords on it. Not only did we use the synth but we also had to use the drum beat maker which was a very solid combo. In the Modal beat I learned how to make a synth/piano beat which was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. Not only did i have to make the piano beat i had to make a drum beat as well which wasn't as much challenge for me because we did it last beat. I learned how to collaborate 2 beat maker together which was very helpful to know in the next beat. We also had to make our beat a mode and mine was Dorian.
This is the first beat that we made that incorporates the beat drum maker feature. This my favorite feature of Sound trap because i feel like im actually making my own cool beat. This beat was the first of many drum beats for me and I learned how to make them starting at this one. I learned a lot from the making of this beat. We learned about the snare drum, the open and closed high hat and the kick drum. This beat was the basic foundation of many more complex beats i had to make using the beat maker. This beat was very simple and easy but it set the whole class up for success on later beats.
The beat above is the first podcast that I made on Sound trap. At first it was very difficult for me to get the right sound of my voice and my favorite song at the time. I tried many ways to use the microphone until I finally got the quality I wanted which was way harder than I was expecting. I am happy with the quality of the product and it was a good experience to have.
In this podcast I learned how to play a beat through a device into a microphone and how to make that sound very crisp and clear. I took a while to get right but I did it and I am happy with the product. This is the first beat where I had to add my voice and edit it to make it sound like I was on a real podcast. This beat also was very strict about the time it end which was at 30 seconds so i learned how to manage the time.
The beat above was the first beat that I ever made in this class and it is my most proud and favorite beat that i have ever made on sound trap. In this beat I used a lot of trap beats and piano because I personally absolutely love the combo beaten the 2 of them. The Brampton beat that I added really was the beat I was looking for and added so much to the beat. In this beat I truly learned what sound trap is and what i need to do to make certain beats sound good together. for example, The trap beat goes very well with certain piano loops which was very handy to know because when the class starts to do more complex beats i am able to use that knowledge to succeed and get a good grade.
