After a year of learning a lot in Logic Pro, I ditched it and busted my MPC1000 back out, and also tried out Ardour for the start of weekly beats 2018. I think I'm going to stick with that set up for the year, but who knows. This beat features samples from various virtual instruments, which I played, and then chopped up on the MPC. I'm a bit disappointed in the intro ultimately, and running out of time to master it better because I forgot the deadline wasn't midnight local time, but I like the beat for the most part. On to the next one!

Just the right amount of high hat shuffle is what makes me love mpc stuff.

thanks! it really does seem to come natural to the MPC, and was something i struggled to get right in Logic

for any one who is interested, since i ran short on time and couldn't learn ardour fast enough, i spent some more time tracking & mixing this beat through the week - https://soundcloud.com/ahhsumx/weeklybeats2018-week01-mixed
