    Exactly...

    dudes need to stop TRYIN to make a particular sounding beat...and just make a hot ass beat... If you have to ask how to do something or create a specific genre, then it's inherently bound to sound like an imitation...period.

    your right, but it will sound more gritter then if he doesnt, u can then use a filter or something and do a "old radio" type deal to it but not so harsh and even layer 2 together...personaly speaking when i used to rap all the beats i rapped on where done on a eps classic, so i got one aswell after when i first started pplaying with beats long ago, i aint even really feeling that sound as a whole, the SAMPLING sound nice but the drums on it, i aint feeling...i like real crispy clean drums...but thats personal prefrence, but if my eps was working (thing boots only like once ever 10 times its junk now) i'd like to use it for just samples and do drums in FL 5

    I think he wants to have his sample "grimey" as in sound quality not as a style.

    thanks all for your help and stayin on topic... yea i dont want yall to think im tryin to sound grimey as in a style, im talkin like how my drums sometimes sound too bright and not dirty enough, even though i use some darker samples(i use the samples Noviss gave out free when he was around here, for u old heads)... well i use those a lot and if yall heard those u knw they high quality, but sometimes i want it to soundmore rugged...

    ill try some of the shit yall suggested... oh yea and i tried overdrive in fruity and it kinda gives the effect but not totally... im seriously considering buyin a eps now...

    btw before i used to compose my beats fully, and got pretty good at that, but i like both sides of the fence and would like some versatility...

    propz to Dskills, what you speak is true


    peace

    I think we all make beats that are a mix of our environment and personal experiences. I never felt Mobb Deep, but I stayed in NY for like a week or two and they played some shit on the radio and just driving around or looking out the window you see how cats up there make that kind of music... cuz its what fits their environment.

    I say that to say that if you wanna make x type beats, you gotta surround yourself in x type shit. Listen to it alot more than the usual stuff you like to listen to. You do it enough you'll notice common shit in beats that people generally perceive as "grimey". Cuz its alot more than sound quality. Alot of Premo's new shit is like insanely crisp and clear and sounds like they got Grammy winning people to record mix and master the whole thing, but it still has that grimey feel to it. I think thats what you should be going for rather than using shit like downsampling to just drop the sonic quality of the music.

    so basically start slanging, smoking blunts and tuck a glock by your cock

    then all of a sudden your beats sound grimey
