Join Matt Piper for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating drumbeats with Kong Drum Designer, part of Up and Running with Reason 8.
- There are more ways to make beats…with the Kong Drum Designer…than the scope of this course could encompass,…but one way that I would like to show you…is by using the Blocks view in the Sequencer.…So, first I will create an instance of Kong.…And I see in the browser here…that there is a Kong Kits folder,…and then there's a Kong Kits mapped for keyboard.…And I'm going to choose from that folder.…They're the exact same kits and sounds,…but they're just laid out in a way…that's a little more logical to play on a keyboard.…
So I'm going to scroll down to this Hip Hop folder,…which is already open,…because I've been digging around in it.…And I'd like to choose this Kickit kit.…So I'm just going to drag that over…on top of Kong and close the browser.…And I could record in the Sequencer normally,…but I would like to switch from the Song view…of the Sequencer to the Blocks view.…The Blocks view is a way to basically create loops…that you can then draw into your main song window.…
These can be made of virtual instrument tracks,…
