As my second commissioned tutorial, I was asked to make the beat for Alice Deejay – Better off Alone.

This is an ace track with some really nice synths that aren’t too hard to emulate.   I have also written a bit extra in the tutorial text about how the epic outro is so epic as per my instructions :)

Check it out!

With the success of my making the beat episode for “I’m on a Boat” by The Lonely Island (It’s actually my most viewed page now!) I’ve had several requests to do other Lonely Island tracks – unusually enough, most for “We like Sportz”.

It’s a hilarious song, with one of the silliest sounding beats I can bring to mind, so I went ahead and made it.

How do you annoy Lady Gaga? :P

I thought I’d try doing a song in the charts that had some sweet synths in it – A bit of oscillator sync, mod bus routing with Thor and filter envelopes! All nicely summed up in under 10 minutes – what more could you want? :D

As usual, made with Reason 4.

I’ve made the second “making the beat” episode, explaining how to make the beat for “I’m on a Boat” by The Lonely Island. Also has a link to my band “You and What Army”‘s Rave/Rap/Rock cover of said song :D Bonus!

Check them both out here!

I’ve been wanting to do this for ages and finally got the time.   Check it out: Making Usher- Yeah in under 10 minutes (I love how much time Lil Jon spends on his productions xD)
