Getting into making some shit using the resample mode, trying to get comfortable with it.

Any suggestion is welcome. Have some loops.

there is a lot of noise in this beat... you either need to mix better or use less samples/better samples.... there was once an interview of miles davis where he spoke about space in music... use it... space and silence can be an instrument too... everything should have its own place to sit and breathe.

 

hope this helps...keep it up.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah noise and generally sound mixing is a big problem I'm trying to deal with. The problem is I don't own a pair of monitors. Usually I make beats at home or at my friend's place, so when I listen to the finished product on different setups it never sounds the same (my PC is connected to an AIWA NSX 330 sound system with 2 speakers, definitely not intended for musical production, while my friend owns another sound system connected to an additional amplifier and 2-channel mixer, with a total of 7 speakers, which obviously makes a huge difference, although it still doesn't come close to what active monitors are able to do with your sound of course). Sometimes it works out pretty well, but in most of the cases it doesn't. I guess working on headphones could be one of the solutions to the problem, at least until I save some money up to buy a decent pair of monitors, that is.

 

Here's an example so you can hear the difference:

Both of those beats sounds fine... I think it's just that one beat has too much sounds...I'm not sure, if that's it, but I like the two you posted more

Also keep in mind you were using the SP404 and previously you were using something else I assume...so keep playing w the sp and maybe things will change
