S2400 12 Bit Beat Tape 10. Jazz samples and old school Jackin House beats

This started out at 105bpm as a Lofi Hip Hop instrumental, but it just had more energy at 122BPM. Bring on the Jackin’ House beats.


Nice one! Curious about pad 8- did you set this to choke all other tracks? I like how you use it as a one shot to temporarily hijack the main beat, play out, then return right back to the main beat all with one hit. Really efficient way to do fills.

That would definitely be a way of doing it, and I used to do something similar on my MPC, but no, it’s much easier. I have my S2400 linked to a wireless QWERTY keyboard. I hit Space to start and stop, so I am basically doing it live. Hit Space to stop, hit Pad 8 at the same time to play the sample, hit Space at the right time to start again. It’s kind of my own version of Finger Drumming haha. I love the S2400 but I find the operation buttons a little clunky, especially for quick reaction work, so I use a QWERTY to pretty much do everything, from writing in file names to editing samples to starting and stopping. It also means I can have my keyboard anywhere, and of course less wear on the unit. It’s not for everyone, but using a QWERTY suits me.
