    Kanye kinda beats are ill and are kinda hard to do for his stuff its all in the sampling and the combination of hi hats and snares that he uses. you must change the tempo and be able to properly lay the vocals of the samp to the pattern of the beat..best way is to play a voal sample(hook) with just the kik and a bit a snare to keep it on beat .....

    if this is ne help....i unno but i tried

    peace

    he makes whatever sounds good to his ears. find a sample filter the drums and stretch it if you want the helium-toned voice, then chop the sample into 2,4, or 8 bars, load it into your sequencer then lay your whatever you like over it. but do it to try to make your own style of sampling not to copy kanye. look at all the niggaz in the game thats hot. Nas, Jayz, kanye, neptunes, timbo and etc. they all have their own style. their works dont sound like each others. when Roc signed kanye i used to think "why do they got two producers who sound identical" but now i dont think like that. you can give kanye and blaze the same sample and watch em flip it differently. all im saying is be yourself. aint nothin wrong with sampling just come up with a hotter way of sampling something

    its not just sampling tho, there's a lot of counter melodies in 'slow jamz' that definetly aren't from the sample.. Listen to the instrumental, there's keyboards in there..

    learn music theory OR learn how to identify the key of the sample and then the scale that goes along with it. After that you add your own instrument sounds in the same key.

    Ive re-made many of kanye, and just blazes beats. I juste use the pitch shift on Cubase, change the tempo, and add the drums, Ive ever re-created some of the HEatmakerz beats (from Diplomatic Immunity)

    Kanye uses samples to create his hit making beats. If you want to make beats like this all you have to do is find a good sample form something you think you can flip and change the tempo of it to something that sounds good. After that sample some vocals from the same sample or another sample and then you just add some drums and a little instruments to change the beat a little. I use the MPC 2000 to sample, most people don't use drum machines, but this piece of equipment works well when sampling. You can create anything you want with the MPC, it's the same thing they use in the big leagues.

    Yeah..he manipulates the sound to his eardrummers drum sticks, ya feel me..but I know he used only three pieces of gear for his College Dropout cd

    1.ASR-10 keyboard
    2.MPC 2000XL midi production center
    3.Gemini PT 1000 turntable

    You can read the entire article in February's issue of Remix. Peace.

    lets stop tryin to figure out his techniques and figure out each other techniques, cuz on the real WE are the next to blow and thats the truth!!! btw i talked to that nigga kanye on tuesday. he's mad cool. that nigga was at the radio station in detroit and he was like call up there if you wanna holla. i asked him "what words of inspiration do he got for future producers tryin to make it" he said "everybody and they momma tryin to be a rapper so provide them with a service." he went on sayin that its more people tryin to rap these days than when he was tryin to come up. just work on perfecting your style and start off sellin em at 200 then sell a few then raise the price then keep on then b4 you know it you got a bunch of tracks out there then when you some big local artist buy your track you jump to 1000 per track. thats all folks.
