I’d like to ask a question of beatmakers: how do you carry your beats from inspiration to your favorite beat app?
Once you’ve got something you want to program in, how do you retain it long enough to make the translation? Do you record yourselves making the noises, and reference that, or are you gifted with the ability to hear it *and freeze it* in your head, which you can then “drop”/sequence/something into your beat app?
I’ve been a physical drummer most of my life, so making beats for me is pretty physical, but I want to squeeze them into my toys, so I can keep them and play with them. As a physical drummer, though, inspiration is itself rather physical, and thinking about it can interfere with riding it. Add to that, thinking about what app you need and how you need to use it, and it can push me right out of the flow entirely.
I’d really like to know how others deal with things like this (if they do).
