Producer Secret

Do you quantize beats to the grid? If so, you're probably not getting the best groove out of your drums and melodies.

A secret that the pros use to make their music more appealing is taking their music off the grid, or in other words, not relying on stock quantization in music software.

We've spent hours on hours listening to top songs and producers and have developed novel tools for Producers called "Groove Enhancers" that give your music better groove instantly.

THE SAUCE

Concept

When creating  music, groove is key​​. Producers like ​​Hit-Boy​,​​ the Neptunes​, ​J Dilla​ and others from various genres produced music off standard timing grids to create groove.

Issue

Groove doesn’t come easy. Producers often have to take time away from the creative process to manually nudge notes or fiddle with compression settings and delays to find a great groove.

Solution

Load a Vocal Pockets Groove Enhancer into your music production software and easily apply it to your existing tracks as a custom quantization setting to make your music feel more alive and overcome beat block.

STOCK QUANTIZATION

Were your vocals different? Here's why:

The second track uses the same old stock 1/16 quantization timing available in music software which tends to make music more robotic and stiff.

The first track applies a Vocal Pockets Groove Enhancer. Vocal Pockets Groove Enhancers are the cheat code to better groove. They are royalty-free, carefully-crafted files used as custom quantization settings that improve the feel of your music and create new melodic spaces for vocalists to sing and/or rap. They are provided as MIDI files and native files for popular music software.

Artist, Composer for The Hollywood Sinfonietta, Sanjay Krishnamurthy

“As a singer and songwriter, I’m always looking for inspiration. I’ve heard tracks with and without the Groove Enhancers and the ones with Groove Enhancers definitely inspire me more. The variations in timing make a difference.”
