Beatjuggling… in Pro Tools – Andre’s Production Diary Part 7
What the hell is this guy doing and why is this posted on a radio imaging blog?
This is beatjuggling and is one of the king disciplines of turntablism. It’s the manipulation of two or more samples, loops, songs, etc… to create a new and unique composition using two or more turntables and one or more mixers. In short: It’s creating new beats by playing around with sounds you’ve already got.
So why am I posting this?
With my musical background as DJ, I’ ve always been impressed of this form of ‘Live Remixing’ and I wanted to bring this technique into Pro Tools.
So, today I’m gonna show you some beatjuggling made in Pro Tools, totally without turntables. A great technique, especially for Urban Imaging.
And by the way… it’s way easier to learn beatjuggling in Pro Tools than with real turntables and vinyl (believe me, it’s a freaking pain…)
