[FREE] NAV Type Beat "City Love" | Hip Hop Trap Ambient Instrumental Type Beat

Hello music lovers. I'm Joey or "Katabok".

Made a new NAV Type Beat. I should really call it "Call Me" Type Beat and add metro boomin in the title because it was really inspired by their mashup. 

Steps/Process to create the beat

1. I started with a few chords to set up the ambiance of the instrumental. I then added a melody and then a counter melody on top of that. Next I thought that a clap/snare would fit perfectly so I found a sound that fits in well and hence I used it. In the beginning I added a filter and volume automation on the snare, it just adds to the movement I rekon. For the melodies and ambient synth I used 100% MASSIVE, no nexus unfortunately. I better get some new sounds soon aye. 

2. I added a basic 808 bass pattern that fits with the root note of the melody. I then added some slides for that extra omphf. I do feel like I could put the 808 at a higher bass note, but nav likes his deeper bass notes.

3. Next I layered everything out, mixed it a bit. If you wanna mix i recommend putting everything to mono from stereo and then work on the leveling from there, it's all about volume leveling.

Thats it gang shee it is what it is

Update Sep - Oct 20th 2017

Whats up everyone

Quick update on what I've been up to. So far building a website + finding a grad job has been very challenging. I'm at the point right now where I've been concentrating on trying to find a good grad job to set up for next year, hence the slow uploads. I've been getting a few interviews but no follow through, Next week though I have an assessment center/ interview with a big blasting company/ distributor for their graduate program and I've been preparing for that. I will definitely get it.  

Now on music, I've seem to come across a "beat block", but I want to redefine my personal block as having a "boredom" for the current sounds I have. As I've previously stated, I have a big love for NEXUS 2 and MASSIVE, however I need to expand my sounds to get into the vibe more. Either that or all of this job hunting got me stressed out hahaha.

Anyways, that's pretty much it. I really feel for the current and recent grads who weren't lucky enough to land a position at the company they wanted, but hey we all learn. Hope my area gets NBN soon, GANG SHEE SQUA SHEEE LESS GOOO.

Regards,

How To Content ID setup Your Music & Beat Instrumentals And Which 3rd Party To Choose Audiam Vs AdRev

 (This is a re-post from the forum "Beatstars Stealing from Producers?" - https://soundgine.com/forum/index.php/1466-beatstars-stealing-from-producers

Hello music lovers. I'm Joey or "Katabok". This post will outline what I did in 2017 (as a instrumental music maker) to protect and ContentID my beats.

1. Signed up for both AdRev and Audiam (AdRev account takes longer to process)

2. AdRev takes 20% off videos that use your music for admin costs but you keep 100% of your monetisation from your videos on your channel. Audiam takes 25%, but you can get your account up and running in a few days (by up and running I mean uploading your music to their content ID system, it only takes a few days to get your ID "verified" in comparison to AdRev which I applied for 1-2 months ago and still haven't gotten the green light yet holla at yo boy...).

3. Start Uploading to Audiam while waiting for my AdRev account to get verified.

Audiam/AdRevwill notify you if anyone's using your music. It will give the people using your music a "copyright notice" which is different from "copyright strike". AdRev will also notify you if someones using your music. Now here comes the "issue", someone using your music who has the right licenses will have to dispute the copyright claim on YouTube with sufficient evidence.

I found a nice article on audio jungle which sums up how to dispute claims (https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/204484680-Buyers-Guide-to-YouTube-Content-ID-Copyright-Notices ). The article uses an AdRev claim an example, I assume the same dispute method would work for Audiam.

I'm new to this myself, there should be more info on this topic because there's a lot off people selling their souls out here lol. I think Beatstars takes a 25% cut as well just like Audiam, but if you content ID YOUR MUSIC YOURSELF no one can fuccs wit you.

4. Once I get verified on AdRev I'll start uploading music to Adrev because they take a smaller cut (20%)

5. Don't content ID the same beat on two different platforms (read your terms and conditions), whatever I content ID on Audiam stays at Audiam, I wouldn't ContentID my beats with AdRev unless I've cleared my beats out of Audiam's servers first. (TBH I cbf removing my beats from Audiam to move them to AdRev just to save 5% hehe).

If anyone (Producer/Beatmaker/Music Artist) is still iffy on the whole content ID thing please check out this article (https://www.safemusiclist.com/adrev-copyright-claims-music-buyers/ ). TLDR if you don't content ID your shit someone eventually will. 

That's it folks, it's all advice, it is what it is.

Rapping and Singing on my Metro Boomin type FREE BEAT "Live a life" with Instrumental

Hello music lovers. I'm Joey or "Katabok".

TODAY I want to talk about a NEW BEAT I MADE called "Live A Life".

Step 1. After the making of video for one of my beats "Long Story", I decided to have a crack at another "making of" type beat (lol). So here I am after driving my mum off to work, inspired with a 160 - 170 bpm beat idea (Final beat is at 170BPM). Same formula, I messed around with the NEXUS synths, creating a somewhat guitar sounding synth after utilising the filter vst. I messed around with a piano arpeggio I randomly made up and then added gross beat, nek min, walah we get the sad gloompy piano melody which is then supported by a flute sample obtained from Disney's Snow white and the seven dwarves. I then added a light snare and infused a lot of claps into this beat which is very unusual for me, I guess i started to impliment this "clap trap pattern" after listening and furiously meditating on "Nav - Some Way". As usual, I added a basic drum trap pattern to the whole main melody.

Step 2. I have two high hats in this beat, one maintaining a fixed trap tempo whilst the other compliments the tempo with a "808 Mafia" type stuttering high hat in the background (you can see what I mean as this process is similar to "Long Story"). After my sudden relisation of my shit mixing skills in the past few weeks, I have taken time to learn about "compression", thought I admit I'm no expert, I can say that I did quite well in mixing my kicks with the whole beat as well as adding a unique "Katabok sounding kick" (If I dare say so). In this beat I utilised two differnt kicks, one kick will include it's "high frequency" and the other kick's "high frequency" will be cut off.

Step 3. With the BASS, I made sure to use the same 808 kick I used for "Stay Longer". This 808 bass is also known as a 808 Kick which includes a "kick" in the beginning followed by the 808 sound. Yep that's pretty much in, I made a random song afterwards using some lyrics, I can't do free style so I don't dare call myself a rapper. Anyways holla at yo boy, it is what it is.

[FREE] Drake X Metro Boomin Type Beat "La Noir" | Hip Hop Instrumental Type Beat

Hello music lovers. I'm Joey or "Katabok".

This Drake X Metro Boomin Type Beat is one of the newer hip hop rap instrumentals I've created and is part of a new collection which I may or may not be naming "Awakening". (Have you heard "Straight From Forest Lakes" (Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/7KfOgVfIeCtkJTzGwBJB8C).

Steps/Process to create the beat

1. After watching CashMoneyAP's video on making a "21 Savage" type beat, I was inspired to try out and make some simple piano melody. After making the melody I then used gross beat to half step it (where the Gross beat 1/2 step gang at?) and that is how I made the simple "6 note melody". After that, I chose to use a trumpet sample from "La Vie En Rose - Louis Armstrong". Blending the trumpet sample with the rest of the melody was difficult and time consuming, as this was my first time experimenting with the strange combination. Overall the introduction gives a very old school Noir type feel/vibe (as depicted by the title of the song". Thank you Bioshock Infinite that game and story line was amazing would recomend 10/10.

2. Now the trumpet sample in the introduction wouldn't fit with the rest of the basic trap drums, in this circumstance I had to swap the trumpet melody and using the same sample found a melody which suited the overall feel of the tempo and tone. The Piano I used was the standard Nexus Grand Piano from (NEXUS). I used my staple 808 BASS as usual. I used a basic ride, made it less present in the mix and gave it a small delay in order to get that "sand shaker" effect (but a nice realistic and better one).

3. The Bass was very basic with the occasional 808 slide, just following the root notes of the instrumental. The part where the beat switches up is the section before the break, I implemented a higher tone in the trumpet and used a high pass filter in order to make the trumpet sound more realistic. I used FL studios Parametric EQ 2 in conjunction with the filter to create that live effect. Slight reverb and delay was also added onto the trumpet sample (WHO GOT DA TRUMPET SAMPLES?). And then around goes the beat -> repeat. 

All in all, this is a almost simple, yet slightly complicated beat that I am very proud of. It is what it is.

[FREE] Travis Scott X 21 Savage Type Beat "I Got It" | Hip Hop Instrumental Type Beat

Hello music lovers. I'm Joey or "Katabok".

This Travis Scott X 21 Savage Type Beat is one of the newer hip hop rap instrumentals I've created and is part of a new collection which I may or may not be naming "Awakening". (Have you heard "Straight From Forest Lakes" (Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/7KfOgVfIeCtkJTzGwBJB8C).

Steps/Process to create the beat.

1. The melody was created with a NEXUS Distorted Piano strings at 160 BPM and Half timed using gross beat. I got the melody inspiration from Goldlinks "Crew", I really felt that a simple melody would allow for more presence for the vocals of the artists using the instrumental. I would like to mention that this beat (like my previous beat) was influenced from my recent work with Art J Designs (top secret but will be posting his links when everything gets settled) (well if you want to have a look at the music please see here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7io-YyYz38). Now I used a nice FX in the begging of the intro of he melody, I hope to use this again sometime in the future for more ambiance! and as I have stated in older posts, I generally try to make the beat as "vibrant and entertaining" as I can for our current generation of fast consumers.

2. I used a basic trap beat drum kick pattern on the high hats. A slight difference would be the softer panning (panning means the sound goes from left to right) and this creates more of a modern sound (I think). Did I mention I used a flute sample obtained from Disney's Snow white and the seven dwarves? lol. Now before the "break section" of the beat I made the high hats switch from different octaves and then I made them speed up, this allows for the panning to be more noticeable and relevant in the mix. 

3. I used my staple 808 Bass and included nice slick 808 slides. I really want to broaden my beat making skills and I feel like I should slow down on the trap for now, however the 808 slides are forever relavent. On another topic I wanna make a small post about trap it's decline (maybe) and the relevance of POP music. Other than the cool 808 beat slides I used Gross beat to reverse some of the snares, this further added to the "modern gangsta" vibe for the whole instrumental. Yep this is some simple shit so I don't have anything else to say other than have a nice day.

It is what it is.
