yeah ive seen those threads man...

usually the guys that have this and that equipment and front about it (lots of shit they use to make beats) usually suck bad cause they are concentrating on the gear they have and not how their shit comes up...
i actually wrote this stupid reply to this 303 thread saying somethibngl ike "fuck 303 get a mpc" but i didnt personally mean shit with it, i was just joking around ...

peaceeeeeee

another thing apart from the equipment-issue is that too many of cats try to imitate someoneelses sound (dilla, madlib...) when they should concentrate on developing their own sound and shit... i mean there is a difference between admiring/respecting someones work and trying to copy the sound...

even a lot of pro DJs with ridiculous home studios - it's like I'm not even feeling their beats! And a lot of those same producers, their beats don't just sound bad, often they sound cheap!

Yeah, the thing that get most cats with a shitload of gear is that they dont take the time to master any piece of it. But when your made to focus on a certain piece the quality of the product will show. But hey, I've had bouts with gear lust. But somtimes limited funds helps creativity and machine master, and thats real talk, Peace.

I mean, isn't it possible to do shit on cheap gear and make it sound decent by getting it mastered? Aloooot of shit that alot of people don't bother to think about. It's funny

Ah, I like equipment...there's nothing wrong with wondering what people like to use. Sure, the music matters more... but pots and pans will get old quick.

cheap gear, good soundcard.
i still use the one that came with my comp.
i think a good $150 card would bring more depth.

yes! if i had money i would probably buy a whole lot of shit, but i doubt the music would sound better. it all comes down to the basic shit. rhythm and sounds.

I made a comment about 303s on another thread, but I was just stirring shit up for a laugh. It goes without saying that its the music that matters and not what you use. I love the first cLOUDDEAD album and most of that was made on a Dr Rhythm which is about 10 x more basic than a 303 even.


If you have an ear for what sounds good and use your equipment creatively, you can get good results even with the most basic of setups.


For pots and pans see Tom Waits - that man could make beautiful music out of almost anything. Even his own ass (probably).

Tom Waits is great

Thank God for this thread. I thought I was delusional in thinking it was even possible to make beats without 10,000$ worth of shit. I guess 9th Wonder proved that theory wrong years ago though.

word to 9th wonder.

i seen on one of madlib's interviews with egon, about equipment.
even tho he could easily move up to an mpc, madlib chooses to be a "rebel" as he said
by still using his sp303. thats skill, and a humble musician.

ya definitely some of the better beat makers keep it simple. Someone in this group tipped me off to a book called "Behind the Beat." It's really fascinating and explores the home studios of producers. I noticed a lot of the wackers DJs have a GANG of shit, and some of my favorites, like J-Zone, aren't too elaborate.

maybe its time for primo to step up a bit, just so he could make some better beats.


a lil more sampling time goes along way and both those machines aint too hi.
