How to make a boom bap style beat?

Recommended Posts

Do you mean just the rhythm and drum samples or something more?

Is there more? I do mean the rhythm because I was wondering if it's a swing kind of thing but, because you brought it up, is there more to this that I'm no looking into.

i would say it comes down to a combination of finding the right amount of swing when you quantize and just straight up performing certain parts with little to no quantization at all, adjusting for how loose of a feel you're going for. goldbaby has some free midi groove templates that you may find useful, though most daws will let you adjust the swing "intensity" when you quantize. generally you want a value somewhere in the range of 16th note @ 55-65%.

there are also some decent video tutorials out there on hip-hop groove production, which could be applied to the kind of up-tempo breakbeat style you're going for.

Thanks for the advice and the videos were a huge help :)
