My Beat Making Workflow - How I made RWK (A Trap Beat)

Tonye Brown // 10:45 PM // ,
I recently a beat that's gotten some love from a couple of people in less than 24 hours.
The beat is called "Running With the King" a.k.a RWK.

I love trap beats (like a lot), so I decided to make one.
First here's the beat:


Nice huh?

Here's how I went about it (note that this is just the creative process, not a tutorial):

RWK Workflow
1. Opened FL Studio and dropped 3 claps on the sequencer at a tempo of 140bpm
2. Opened up Wavepad and recorded myself saying "Running With The King" almost 10 times. I then saved the recording as a wav file and imported it into FL Studio to select the best take (the take that sounded cleanest, and was perfectly on time).
3. I went through two other samples before I decided on the sample to use for the better part of the beat.
4. I got a dubstep-ish sounding bass sound from my favourite vsti and then added some subs that complemented it (i.e. the same note, sounds like music :P).
5. I used the vocal sample for the hook/chorus.
6. I tapped into that divine creativity. I figured, "I don't want a beat that is too loopy!", so I duplicated my main sample and reversed the wav file and used it for some change ups.
7. Of course, drums were added. But I also included a snare pattern for some change ups.
8. Finally added some Limiting, Multiband compression and stuff to improve the mix a bit.


That's it. I probably spent like 3 hours on that beat in FL Studio. And if you want the beat, go to the True Vine Productions beat store to buy it exclusively.

Grace and Peace.
