3 Tips For FIXING Your Beats (DO THESE!) | Troubleshooting your beats can be one of the most difficult things to learn as a producer. There may be many issues with your beats, and in order to improve your beats and level up your producer skills, you will need to learn how to identify these issues and solve them.
And this is why I made this tutorial video today. I want to show 3 particular types of problems that occur often in many newer producers' beats, and why they happen. After looking at why these issues happen when making beats, I then explore the potential solutions for these beatmaking mistakes.
Even though this video was made using FL Studio, this can still apply if you are using Ableton, Logic, Garageband, Maschine, or any other DAW!

Navie is definitely the best production tutor on YT. Why? Because he actually teaches and teaches well. Hes knowledgeable. Hes not like most of these other tutorial guys who don't really teach anything or understand what they are saying themselves and are really flexing their producer muscles while hiding behind the word "tutorial". This was a good video and I learn alot. +1 for us. Thx alot Navie

This is so true, they always say tutorial but don’t actually talk or put words on the screen about what they are doing, they just make a really quick song in front of you with no explanation. This guy is great, gives you tips, and is actually trying to lead you to better beats. This guy is great glad I finally stumbled upon a channel like this 👍🏾 God bless y’all 😊❤

Hey... a lot of these tips are great! However, I predominately use Reason 12 to make beats. Some of your concepts are difficult to translate. Could you do a video on how to transfer these concepts to Reason, Ableton and whatnot? Even if you’re running them as plugins?

Late to the party, but appreciate this one! The first tip will help a ton while I'm trying my hand at EDM. Just so much going on and such dense sounds that it can be overwhelming. I also never fully knew what the resonance knob did. Super helpful to now envision what it's doing thinking in terms of seeing it on an EQ. And of course distortion. Can't forget that one! Appreciate it my friend! Edit: P.S. The analogy killed it as always. 🤣 They always cracked me up but get the point across so well. Idk how you think of them, but never stop. Hahaha!

I never understood the difference between EQ and filtering. Thanks for sharing this information with the music producer community, Navie. I'm going to start using this tip more
LukeSLy Beats
LukeSLy Beats 18 gün önce
There is no difference, other than the fact that an eq gives you far more control. You don't need a filter to add resonance to a High or low pass filter. It can be done in an eq in two seconds. I'm kinda shocked that navie put this info out there tbh
