Question for Beatmakers

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).

Trilobyte,

Check out Henny Tha Bizness on YouTube, he has one specific video entitled “ HOW TO MAKE BEATS FAST on iOS DEVICES using BLOCS WAVE!!!” that I think you will find very helpful! Here’s the link:

(If the video starts in the middle just rewind it to the beginning, this is the only link to that particular video that I could find, but is starting around the 11-minute mark. It may only be on my end, but I wanted to point this out just in case.)

Let me know if you find it helpful. It should be a great starting point to help with what you described!

Cheers!

Jay
