Music Producer Tip: The type of drum sounds you select and the drum patterns you program are critical when making authentic hip hop soul beats. The samples you select also play an important part in the sound. Soul, melodic, 1970’s and/or soulful samples tend to work well. To update or modernize the sound of your hip-hop-soul, try adding neo-soul organic timing to the top end of your drums. If you are someone looking to perfect the hip hop soul sound as a beat maker or music producer, Big Noise has the resources you need to deliver the goods. Video tutorials, hip hop drum samples, soulful sound packs and a niche collection of analog audio gear. All part of the select offerings designed to help you achieve success, at a level of quality that sets you apart from the competition.
