Jumpin Out Da Jing!

So I’m back with another screen cast for Strategic Presentation! It made sense that I should do a screen cast about sampling and show what goes on in the program I use (Logic Pro 9) when you want to sample a song. The assignment for using Jing to do a screen cast previously went pretty smoothly so I figured this would be the same. I tried to keep all the technical information to a minimum because Jing screen casts had a 5 minute time limit, but I still had to split it up into two separate videos. When Jing asked me if I wanted to “Help make Jing better!” when I signed up I hit them with the:


But my only advice now would be longer video times and the ability to edit the finished product lol. Other then that I think the screen casts turned out pretty decent. I’ve watched what feels like a million of them over the years trying to learn how to use programs and plugins but I never made my own until now. The song I used to sample in the videos is “It’s All Over” by Lee Fields. Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

First Post!

So this is the first ever post on the VinylBeatsBlog! Using WordPress to set this up was extremely simple and straightforward. With a little time spent messing around in the menus and finding a suitable theme, I’m ready to get this site underway!

What better place to start a blog about music production and sampling in Hip-Hop then to provide some examples of my favorite resources to learn more? One resource that has proved to be extremely valuable to me is a YouTube Channel titled “Vinyle Archéologie.” On this channel, the creators post an enormous amount of songs that have been recorded in their vinyl form and uploaded for others to enjoy. I frequently use this channel to browse songs from a wide range of genres and time periods when searching for samples. Below I have posted a few screenshots of their channel page and a link to follow for those interested!
