    Hey guys n gals,

    I hope everyone had a fantastic festive season and I see a ton of you have been very busy. I was going through a whole lot of tracks in the last week and I keep noticing a trend, particularly in trap songs. It seems a lot of our urban producers are using the bass-drum sample from the TR-808, but are not bothering with tuning.

    So instead of complaining ONLY, I have linked a tutorial (FL studio, since a ton of ya'll use this, but I'm sure you can find a similar thing for whatever DAW you are using). This tutorial will assist in tuning your drum and some other tricks and tips. Have a look, I implore ya'll.

    There are few things worse than having a great intro and build-up, only for a badly out-of-tune kick to come in and ruin a track. Apologies if you read this far and already know all this, but I thought I'd share nonetheless.

    Keep making great music


    I realise there are hundreds of videos like this, but this was the first one I found that included all the steps I wanted to share. Feel free to refer to other videos, as you please.

    This is not the recent version of FL. Things have changed quite a bit since then.
