I have watched a lot of YouTube videos about music, production, beatmaking, etc, for many years.
Last night I found this guy Da Drank Kang. I think he might be the best of the best.
He makes all his beats with his (very expensive) MPC X and MPC software (standalone), and then “tracks out” to Reaper (exporting), and perfectly organizes and mixes his stuff, within Reaper. It’s even color-coded. Genius workflow.
His videos are probably the most informative and useful videos I’ve found, about beatmaking and production.
Another cool thing is… he never curses in his videos, out of respect for his viewers, in case they don’t. Now, I curse a lot… and always have. I have a potty-mouth (sorry). But, I respect this dude a lot for not doing that. As I’ve seen a ton of Youtubers cursing up a storm as they do their tutorials. But, the reason this guy stands out is that he’s 100% information, and 0% babble nonsense.
Here are a couple videos by him… ALL of them are amazing (you’ll go down the rabbit hole, like I did) but these are two of my favorites. Happy Beatmaking!!!
