After this course you will know how to make a beat, arrange the beat for Rappers, rough mix the beat, Track the vocal, mix the song & set the song up to send to a mastering engineer or master it your self

I’ve worked with many in the industry. Pussycat dolls (I have a Grammy nomination for “Stick with you”).

I’ve toured with Lauryn Hill as a live beat maker, MD &Keyboard player.

In the studio with Miss Hill I’ve poured through records with her and listened and made beat after beat.

In this course I show you how to make a Rap beat for a rapper. 

I also show you how to arrange the beat for the rapper, get a rough mix of the beat,

Track the vocal and mix the whole song.  At the end I show you how to set up the mix to send

to a mastering engineer for mastering or do a quick cheap master your self.


Picking the sounds and tempo

Make your own beat from scratch in logic pro x

Make your beat industry standard by using some of the same

techniques Producers and engineers use.

All the while showing you studio tricks that are used in Rap and

using logic pro's signal flow and third party plug ins that

will help you make your track nice and phat.

Arranging the beat

Now that you have your 8 bar loop created we need

Arrange it so that a rapper can rap over it

Rough Mix of the beat
Tracking the rap vocal

I do not condone music that demeans women or portrays women as the "B" word or "H" word.

This lecture will explain the difference between Hip Hop and Rap.

I am all about consciousness and enlightenment.  You do with the music what you will.

Just know that I approach every situation with love.

We all have free will-


Now that the rapper has written to the beat you've made

it's time to record their lyrics

We'll show you how to set up your mic, record your vocal &

do over dubs

If you need assistance with tracking a vocal or getting a rapper ready to

record and you feel they need it here are some sources you can contact.


You may love your vocals the way they were done on the day of tracking.

However, sometimes when you wake up the next day your vocals just dont

make you happy anymore.  This is common. Just go back and touch up

the parts of the vocal you don't like.

Mixing the entire track

Happy with vocals?  If not just go back and watch the previous video again.

If you are happy then let's mix the vocals and the track together to make

a song

Getting your mix ready for a Mastering engineer or Master your self

You've made it this far?!?!

Congrats! A lot of beats don't make it this far.

A lot of beats sit on hard drives for years because

the producer has no idea how to finish them. If you know

someone who is like this send them to simpliv.com  :)

Mastering is the final touches of a song.
