Tips for Sequencing Your Electronic Beats
Once you have your software setup and you’re ready to start being creative and want to take your beat sequencing to the next level, just read these tips and they can really help you out!
My first tip is that you should listen to other electronic beats to get a feel for how they are sequenced. Listen to them carefully, loop them if you have to, and analyze them with your ears as closely as possible. Then using your mind try to imagine how they were sequenced and how you could possible replicate the sound or the pattern in your own tracks.
My second tip is to keep things simple. Avoid over complicating your patterns and your ideas. Often times the simplest ideas are the best because they are the most clear and they have space to express their character and “feel”. If you can make things simple yet interesting you will be well on your way to mastering the art of making electronic music.
My third tip is to learn some music theory and rhythm theory. By studying music properly you can effortlessly translate this knowledge and practice into your tracks and you will see a huge difference!
I hope this article has helped you to understand how to make your own electronic beats and music, and how to improve your tracks once you start! Just remember to never give up and to always try to express yourself to the fullest.
