So can you use breakbeats in Fruity Loops? I don't know anything about how Fruity Loops works so please forgive me but that may be an alternative to your drum situation.



Yeah I Can

But I Don't Have Any
Except The Corny Ones That Come With FL Studio

I Sort of Just Started Fucking With It
So They Have a Pack of Drums Called Realistic and They Are the Nicest Sounding Ones
I Used Them For Every Beat I've Made


And I Just Sequence Them In the Step Sequencer

But Thats What Makes Them Sound Shitty

They Are Too Mechanical I Think

And FL Lets You Put a Swing On the Sequence That Makes it Sound a LITTLE More Natural

But I Want Some Mean Drum Packs

Some Shit With Random Hits Like Trash Cans and Polls And Shit

I Want That Grimey Shit


I'ma Have to Start Searching the Torrent Sites

torrent sites and drum packs are not the answer...... get stuck into them crates!!! i'm sure its been said a million times but it's the only way to get the exact sound you're looking for --- and it's a realy fun activity in itself. finding a massive, open break on some wierd record you bought because it had a funny cover and was cheap is the best feeling --- BREAKFACE!! polish records from the 70's (especially on the Muza label) seem to be a goldmine for breakbeats. and there are extensive lists on sites such as www.the-breaks.com to check so you dont leave those badboys sitting in the dollar bins.

using software kits is for cissies and i doubt any of your favourite producers do it...

Yeah

I Just Make Beats For This Contest


All I Have Is Fruity Loops And Sony Acid Pro



I Have Been Thinking of Getting Into It A Bit More In Depth
Maybe Get Some Equipment


But As For Now Everything is Digital


I'm Just Trying to Get The Feel of It

fair enough. you're beats sound a lot more developed and more interestingly arranged than mine so you should probably do it mre if this is you firing on half cylinders... im sure a lot of beatmakers dont use any hardware -- just computer programs and that --- but still sample from record because its more fun and sounds better. if you dont have a record player you should get a shitty one for cheap. good for the soul!
