    First of all thank AudioSex Academy for videos. Espesally for Home Recording (course) for Beginners witch is very informative .

    My objective is to understand how to make a SIMPLE (for home use) hip-hop session with a old notebook and Pro Tools installed or any other DAW.
    And then to know and understand the principles of of east-cost wu-tang style hip-hop with or not embedded Chinese\Japanese styles.

    Thanks man, AudioSex Academy was my brainchild but I'm looking to expand it to another level, it just takes me a lot of time because I do a lot of the work here and I also work on Audioz so there is always much to do. That particular set of videos was shared by fraggle83 so he gets the credit. In terms of learning any genre you have to begin with the fundamentals of the musical language: composition, music theory, arrangement, use of loops, etc. Then what you do is download some MIDI and check out how it was created. You can get a better sense for motives and melodic lines this way and it also helps you with arrangement. You're lucky because Wu Tang is really popular so you don't have a problem looking for MIDI, I'm into genres that most people don't even know about so there ain't no MIDI for me. Concerning learning materials you can find many on Audioz and I'll be posting many more videos here as well. Stick around I'm sure you'll learn a lot. :wink:

    You are not really going to learn how to make a Wu Tang beat using a Pro Tools session

    RZA does a lot of sampling

    You need to learn the art of sampling

    Get some dusty old records

    chop it up

    Pitch it up or down

    Some of the best stuff I found on sampling is the Jim Pavloff videos on you tube

    Get a E-Mu workstation (or a similar 12 bit expander from the 90's...), or a Jomox, or a TR808(if you have enough money).
    Download and watch 15h minimum of japanese movies from the 60/70s per week. And cheesy spaghetti western. No exception. Yes you can ditch a party to go watch movie.
    Chop chop chop chop.

    Get an EPS-16 or ASR-10, dusty crates of records (dollar bin digging), take soundbites from any 70's/80's kung fu flick and patch them into your tracks with no regard to where and how you do it. Get sloppy with it.

    Hi all, I'm new to the forums, noticed this post on the front page and signed up to share some tracks.

    Done a few wu type beats using an Ipad, Beatmaker 2 and a lot of samples!

    Here's a few

    Welcome to the forums Clanarchy. :mates:

    I fixed your links. In the future to make use of the SoundCloud widget always make sure to remove the s in https. :wink:

    Yo very ill!!

    I wish they had an equivalent to Beatmaker 2 for Android but nothing seems to be quite there yet... Supreme MPA and FL Studio mobile appear to be close.

    Beatmaker 2 is def the best of the apps I've tried out. The Sample function is spot on, and creating chops is a breeze. Stock sounds are nice but I've loaded it up with my own custom kits now. Some of the beats on my soundcloud were done using multiple programs but if you check out the 'Soular Flares Vol 2' that is 100% beatmaker 2.
    I used to use Supreme MPA when it first came out. Never used FL Studio Mobile so no idea how it stacks up to be honest.
