Ok, I love the BB but, I find the hip-hop beats lack the punchy boom chak-syncopation, je ne sais quoi, that I love.
I want something that rips off best uses of the 808.
I want beats reminiscent of the break in The Soul Searchers ‘Ashley’s Roachclip’, towards the end of James Brown’s ‘Funky Drummer’ or anything used by The Sugerhill Gang,
The Boss Dr-202 might be the sound I am looking for by way of lifting beats off of the Jurassic 5 Quality Control instrumental album.
I basically have used hardware samplers and drum machines in the past for beat composition and don’t want to spend the time fiddling with software to get some loops into the BB but, will do it to get what I want. If anyone else is doing the same let’s share our work!
