I sure did. With all of the focus on kicks, snares, and hats, the drum track is and always will be the backbone of any dope beat. But it can be hard to come up with a tight drum loop because often times, the drum samples we use just suck.
Some producers are lucky enough to have a drum set in their studio, so they always have some nice, clean drum sounds at their disposal. The rest of us are left to fend for ourselves and scour the internet, vinyl, and that old guy on the street banging spoons. But could your drum worries be fixed with one simple trick?

The fact is that most artists today do more than write songs and record vocals.

They too have mobile devices, use computers and understand the basics of the Internet.

As the Internet becomes more simple and complex, artists will also adapt and begin to do things differently or in addition to how they normally do things.

For example, Google search now displays a “Publish Date” filter in which a searcher can filter when the content they are searching for was published.

One of the hardest parts about making beats (and selling them too) is promotion. Very often we can get caught up in the whole beat making game where every day is all about beats. For myself, I see beats posted daily on IllMuzik, some beatmakers send me their beats, and others post on social media, hoping to get some attention.
But that's not necessarily promotion. I know we can all get wrapped up with making beats and perfecting our craft, but to really make a name for yourself and sell more beats, you have to promote.

One aspect of online marketing that every producer knows about is how tedious it can be when messaging artists. Whether you're messaging artists on Facebook, Twitter, email or through text, most of the time you're probably saying the same thing over and over again.

What if you can make this process a bit faster and easier? If you have an iPhone, I found a trick. I'm going to show you how to create a shortcut on your keyboard so that you can don't have to type the same thing repeatedly .

For example, you can type something like "M1" and the message will say "Hey bro, I see you do music. How long u been rappin?".

Whether you're first starting out making beats, or you're a seasoned veteran, there are going to be times when you will be trying to record your music on a budget. Unless you were born into a family that has so much money they poop gold coins, you're going to be on the lookout for deals on various software and hardware.
What's interesting about recording on a budget is that it can be done, and done easily. I'm not implying that you're broke, poor, and whose only option is to make beats by banging two spoons together, of course not. But money today is tight for everyone, so what do you do?

Selling beats is the ultimate goal for most beatmakers, and with the various ways you can sell beats - from the streets to online communities like myFlashStore, it can be very lucrative.
But so can stealing.
Just as you can make lots of money and get lots of attention from making and selling beats, the same goes for those that choose to steal your precious beats and use it as their own. This is why it's important to tag your beats.

There are numerous articles on various blogs about selling beats, as well as discussions in forums and on social media, and a lot of them offer very good advice. It has never been easier to sell beats online, in the sense that all the information to help you do so is right at your fingertips.
With all of the ideas, suggestions, and tutorials, I don't think I have ever seen anyone mention that the name of your beat can help you get beat sales.

Getting that big, boomy low end that is extremely popular in today's music, is a must when you are creating a beat. Most genres of music consist of a low end that is very thick, heavy, and loud, so there are various ways you can achieve that sound.
Most of the time you can get away with just having multiple kick drums layered on top of each other, but for this article, you need to take it a bit deeper. No, deeper. Deeper than that….

Sampling and Hip Hop go hand in hand. If you have read my other articles, you can easily tell that I love to sample when I make beats, but it wasn't always that way.
There was a time when I was first starting out, where I didn't know how to sample - just like most newbies. I had no choice but to use whatever was at my disposal, and guess what? My beats weren't half bad!
