UPDATE: Sorry, I took off the download links as the samples needed to be cleared first.
Creating a cool house beat is not that hard.
You just need a handful of drum samples, a couple of effects and a bit of imagination. And of course, FL Studio. 😉
I must say that in house music – and in any EDM genre – the beat alongside the bass is one of the most important aspects. A good groove is like 60-70% of the song, and that’s what sort of carries the whole genre. So I suggest putting in A LOT effort and focus around the beat/groove.
In this walkthrough video, I will show you how I created this example house beat, and I hope it will give you some ideas to make your own house beats.
I won’t go into too many details on all the effect settings, etc. because it would have been just too boring and that is why I’m giving the .flp project file so you can see exactly what I’ve done.
Feel free to use the project file and the beat however you like.
