Re: Tips for a beginner

using unusually high bpms but sequencing it so that its really at halftime i.e. using 350bpm but making it sound like 175bpm (it makes it easier to subdivide and sequence 1/16, 1/32, 1/64 notes) and layering simple rhythms on top of each other i.e 4/4 against 13/8, or conversly using trackers and playing around with the ticks per beat

Re: Tips for a beginner

i like making random edits without listening and recording random things i do, then picking out the parts i like.
micro edits are old, but still cool.
download a load of amens (or make your own) then chop the fuck out of them and re-arrange parts.
in general small little stab sounds and drum hits work wonders, again, semi-randomly placed can cause happy accidents a lot too.

I'm not a pro, but you might want to put the beat creating waaaay before the mastering. There are loads of good YT tutorials and even tutorial threads on IDMF to get you started in your DAW of choice. Check the tutorials section

Re: Tips for a beginner

About making beats:

Even if your focus is on making extreme breaks, I recommend you spend some of your time studying classic rhythms like a regular drummer would. Whether you tap your fingers on cardboard or buy a full drum-set is less important, - the important part is that you start to get a hands-on feel for the classic beats and what makes them work.

Using drum samples in extreme ways (too crazy for any real drummer to play) is fine, - but if you don't understand the way basic rhythms work (and how to play them), then it's easy to loose your way into random chaos. If that happens, tightening stuff up with tricks from real drumming can almost always help you get your ass back on the funky path.

Best wishes.

Tap 1 2 3 4 and repeat for a long time until you start to hear voices.... then pick a voice you like. And play with that...
