What’s up my fellow household appliances? We’re back with another video. Today we’re going to be making a low five beat without using any loops or any samples.

And for those of you like me who don’t really know how to play keys and all that, we’re going to be using the captain plugin suite just to make it easier to put together some tasty lo fi chill kind of vibe.

So let’s do it.

Alright, so let’s start off with the Captain because I you know, I like to start with drums. You know, your boy has his own drum patterns built into the captain beat.

So let’s just use my own drums being so pattern at Lj the giant hip hop. First off, let’s change the tempo to like 85.

Let’s switch out these drum samples with some more lo fi style stuff. You know, I’m saying, alright, let’s go with this one.

snare throw that once you’ve put your own drums in, it automatically sounds how you want it to sound.

Let’s throw in a few more random little percussion noises.

Let’s just export those stems real quick.

All right, so we got our jump at him.

It’s that simple.

So if you want to go and take that exact drum pattern, and you have Captain beat, go do it.

Knock yourself out.

Real quick though, just for future references.

I’m just gon na save this as a kit.

Whenever you drag in your own drums, you can save it as a kit.

And we can just call this lo fi one. I don’t know.

Now let’s open up the Captain chords and get some chords going.

Let’s just pick a random key and then we can just change it if we want to.

Let’s just do G flat major.

So let’s just start with lounge lizard, and then switch the channel to Captain chords.

Turn that on, so that way we’ll be able to hear what we’re doing at all times.

So this is lo fi, so you’re gon na want to strum the chords for so you don’t really need to know music theory for this.

These are just the different chords.

These are the names of the chords.

These are the different types of chords. Would it be good for you to know music theory?

Of course, 100%.

So they even have a play option where you can just play the chords on your keyboard.

But yeah, we’re not going to do that.

So if you go here to flavor, if you do seventh, ninth or 11th, that’s the type of chords that are used in lo fi a lot.

Yeah, I want to change the key actually to like G minor.

Let’s try that out.

Let’s switch the sound out.

Alright, so let’s build some melodies on top of that.

So when it comes to Captain melody, I pretty much just use it to play.

You can generate your own melodies like automatic melodies with it.

I just like being able to play a key feature of it the most.

I kinda like that sound. Actually, let me see.

Whatever that was, I like it, son.

Let’s try that over, even with their own notes and Sam, let’s throw in some volcko charts from exhale.

We need something just to give it a little bit of Shivaji. You know, I’m saying this nature sound from the Lj lo fi samples Volume One.

So now it is time to add some bass.

I want that to happen earlier.

The last thing I guess I would like to add is some vinyl crackle.

Yeah, it’s a vibe.

I’ll play more at the end.

Also, for my table gang super producers on Patreon, I’m going to give you guys this whole project file, so you can go mess around with it stems and everything.

And for you, casual viewers, I’ll put a link in the description for the melody I made in this. You can download that for free.

But yeah, that’s it, that’s making it a little five beats with like Katherine plugins suite without really knowing much about music theory or how to play piano, how to play keys, all that stuff that tends to limit producers, including myself, where you feel like I really want to

Yeah, you don’t have to only use loops.

You can use stuff like this that can assist you in making your beat me I personally use a lot of loops, but I also make a lot of loops.

And when I do make them, I use these plugins for short.

Also, for a limited time, head over to mix key calm.

And you can cop one of these plugins for 10% off using the code Lj, so I’ll leave more information about that below.

Definitely go check it out.

Thank you for streaming the music.

I appreciate it.

I know everybody’s going through some tough times right now.

So just make sure you’re staying safe, staying clean, listening to what people tell you like staying inside and whatever you got to do to get through this craziness, but we will get through it.

So yeah, I’m unable to let anybody tell you what you can or can not be.

Thanks for watching.
