Creative Transitions in Beats
Posted on January 2nd, 2015 by GratuiTousIn Tutorials | No Comments »
Productions can become boring very quickly; especially in hip-hop.
You make your basic drum loop and instruments, and you just keep rinse and repeating the arrangement throughout the whole song!
But something a lot of people struggle with is bringing in a certain sound/instrument without it sounding out of place.
We do this with transitions/breaks.
Different Types of Audio Transitions:
There are MANY different types of transitions. And I have quite a few tutorials showing different transitions you can use. Think of them as different types of paint brushes we can use in the audio world?
These transitions can range from:
- A special loop played only before something new comes in
- Using reverse cymbals
- White noise to build tension
- Basic snare roll we hear in basic dirty south beats
- Filters are a HUGE transition!
Motive of this Tutorial:
The motive of this tutorial is to first give you an idea of painting a picture for your listeners, and then trying to be different from other producers.
