Beat Construction is the latest installment in the Samplecraze Production Series of books aimed solely at Beat Makers.
Constructing drum beats, and specifically for Urban and Dance genres, seems to be a closely guarded secret and trying to get any information on how current producers create and manage their beats is a long and arduous struggle.
If you are like me and struggle to lay down a drum groove then you need to grab this book.
Inside you will find chapters that cover very specialized techniques and processes, each accompanied with before and after audio examples with clear and concise large screen grabs for easy reading. In addition to all detailed descriptions and analysis, each chapter includes clear screen shots from a range of recommended VST software plug ins, showing you every setting, parameter and slider position, plus every single audio example discussed in the book is included (16 bit stereo WAV files), ready to open up in your favourite audio editor and DAW for full analysis. Each process example is carefully analyzed, explaining exactly how each parameter you adjust is altering the audio, ensuring you completely understand how to use the different techniques to professionally construct and transform your drum beats.
