Tip #171: Watch Large Professor make a beat

If you’ve never watched a beat getting made before, its a pretty fun process to watch. A producer takes some records from a crate, takes different elements - drums, vocals, horns, even just static - and crafts them into something new and sometimes untraceable to the source. If you’re going to get a lesson in how it’s done, look no further than one of the legends Large Professor doing his thing on an MPC. He makes it look too easy. If you like this, the whole Rhythm Roulette series is very fun to watch.
