This screencast teaches the basics behind low-tempo beat making, music theory and note learning. You will get an understanding of the notes we are going to use and you will see the difference between a beat and a bar. We will go throw a homepage that teaches you the secrets behind the keys in the keyboard and show you how to use that knowlegde in practical way - by making a simple and a nice beat.
This is Part 1, so stay tuned for Part 2 where we will use the same beat and go through the program in an advanced level, where you will learn about the mixer, effects and timeline.
