If you have a hard time figuring out whether you are in the "right" BPM for your beat, I want to cover some ideas and concepts that might help you out in today's tutorial video. Hopefully, beat making makes a bit more sense after this!
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!

I can tell you the exact reason:

You don’t choose the bpm, it chooses you.

20 year classically trained pianist here, and double time vs 'normal' affects how you think of and count music when performing as well. And it has a lot to do with what you said: more space for writing, but also makes it easier to count out in some instances when learning / performing. A lot of Sousa marches are good examples of how counting in double time vs cut time vs 'normal' time can be counted.

i use both. Doesn’t really matter to me. Although I notice that a little swing in single time is not the same as double that amount of swing in double time,,, there is always something to add.

some synth presets with time-based effects and modulation may also sound different at lower or higher BPMs, this sometimes makes a difference in creating melodic compositions and chord progressions as well

I have always wondered how double time and single time affect how a note is articulated especially for a one shot like our drums. Just looking at the settings on the generic sampler on FL studio would suggest that playing around with the BPM in such a manner might affect how one shots are articulated. The suggestion that you can feel a difference in the beat may come from that fact that drums in double time are more punchy as they are essentially being played for a shorter amount of time, while at single time the drums play a little longer so there is less punch.

This was a major issue I had. There's literally no videos out there about this

I think the only difference is how many beats per minute are played.

If you hold "alt" while you stretch your midi, it will do it in "snap to grid" style by percentages.

I think BPM doesn’t affect the construction of a beat because not everyone works at the same speed or carry the same experience to cook up on the spot

Thanks for the video. As always those are gems. If I may however I think that there is a fundamental issue with he premises of this theory. The fact that we start with saying what genre we need to pick to then move on to the BPM is an approach that certainly makes sense however it is also a way to kill creativity before you even start. By that I mean that you don’t want to position yourself into a box as it will also influence the choice of sounds. If you want to create something completely new and push the envelope the BPM should come only after. Open to hear people thought on this. Respectfully, H

Dope thing is u can always change your BPM and adjust your beat. i normally have a tempo in my head when im starting or i just adjust it till i feel a vibe.

I use a low BPM to create every beat I make

I don't know, about other people. But at one point I was like " what happens if I make a trap beat at 75 bpm?" And it felt WAY❗ better because I had more room. So I guess you were right. Thanks for your time and effort Mr Naive 🙏

I'm on team double time. The reason being, hi hats play at 1/8 value (in trap) and 1/8 dotted (in drill) as opposed to 1/16 and 1/16 dotted in single time, which makes making rolls easier as you would only really go down to 1/64 as opposed to 1/128 (an option that isn't even available in Logic, my daw)

This is such a great video. This is a very important but not as covered topic. Thanks for sharing. Keep up the grind 💪

I usually make Trap beats in double time so I can get faster hi hats on the step sequencer and don't have to go in the piano roll, just a workflow thing tho

Single time is my friend. Some producer on YT claimed trap is produced in double time due to fast-paced hi-hat rolls often used, but then you can just press alt/option + u(FL Studio) to get same rolls in single time so I still continued producing in single time.
