Review by Mgmnt / Turntablelab:
"This is an excellent DVD for people who want to get into beatmaking or those who have recently purchased production equipment. The video is not really a straight up "how to video," it's more of an overview, giving you an excellent understanding of the general process. Like many things in djing, this leaves it mostly up to you to fill in the details. The video is split into 2 sections. The first covers beatmaking machines, and gets into some detail with the MPC, Roland, Triton, and others. Your guide Richard "Spyda" Bonnin creates beats on the fly and explains the standard features of a drum machine/sequencer. The second half focuses on Midi and computer based software. This section gets more in depth than the first, with representatives from several companies (Reason, Roland, and others) going over the basic and advanced features of their software. In addition, the DVD does an excellent job explaining how midi works, your first basic step for working on a computer. Before you go ahead and buy an expensive beat making package, we recommend you to drop the $16 for this very informative primer."
