Busy Works Beats Music Theory In A Day [Tutorial Pack]
When I first started producing using FL Studio, I winged it. I knew absolutely NOTHING about music but I knew how to get what was in my head into a beat. I knew guys who took band classes and went to special music schools but at the time, I didn’t like learning the traditional style of music. It bored me to tears. So, I thought all music was boring, until I found an easy to follow system which taught me music theory in a day.
Today, I want to give you some of the most valuable information you can find if you want to learn music theory. I have crafted quick videos below to show you some cool techniques to get your started. Music theory is more than just chords, it involves progressions, scales and other aspects which will help you make great melodies and songs.
Your beats won’t be a bunch of random notes anymore. This course will solve it all for you within a day. Originally, this course was made to be taken over 30 days, but now we have compressed the information for you to watch in one sitting. This new product gives you the hidden codes behind music theory and how to see it for what it is. We are making it easier to understand than most of the courses out today. We even gave you two free videos to show you the power of using only one technique! This course is organized into 9 sections which will guide you through the process of learning music theory and creating great songs and melodies. It’s easy. No boring staffs or outdated ways of teaching. The universities don’t like that we are educating producers with this course. They hate us for making music theory seem so easy. They want you to think it’s difficult so you will spend $2,500+ on a single course on part of the theory. That’s ludicrous! Don’t waste time or money when you can learn theory in a DAY.
This course was developed for beginners and will even help the advanced players simplify their approach to theory. This course has been in the works for some time now and is finally ready for you. With over 20,000 producers demanding this course, we believe this course will do you much good. You NEED theory to have the advantage over other producers. If you don’t know theory, you will be bound to making mediocre songs. The community at BusyWorksBeats.com has spoken, and we have delivered what you wanted. A music theory course easy enough for a ten year old to understand. Learn why producers like Ryan Leslie, Timbaland, Kanye West, Alicia Keys and more all stand out apart from their competition. They know theory.

From the mind of Nick Kaelar comes a fresh sample pack perfect for giving your track that authentic anime and kawaii feel. These vocals were recorded with in Japan by a voice actress, so rest assured that it’s the real thing, and it’s completely royalty-free! Have fun and ganbare (work hard)!
Exclusive sample packs and producer collections available through the Splice Sounds platform. Not just a tool for discovering third-party samples anymore, Splice is proud to offer some of the world’s most unique audio libraries to Sounds subscribers. Each month, we will be working closely with new artists to provide fresh content just for you.
Chill-hop is a genre that appropriately encompasses the two entities after which it is titled. Chill: laid back, contemplative, relaxing. Hop: movin’, bouncing, head-nodding. Chill-hop draws from the lo-fi aesthetic of modern chill-wave, jazz, and R&B while being structured by the backbone of old school hip-hop and rap music. Our latest release, “Somber Soul” appropriately encompasses all that chill-hop is; smooth electric pianos, ambient guitar licks, and grooving bass lines. With 87 one-shots of keyboards and guitars processed with various different textures, and dry stem options for each of the 15 Melodic Loops in this pack, “Somber Soul” gives the user a plethora of options to create laid-back vibes never heard before.
Soul Surplus is a full-service production company. We create original music compositions and digital media for music producers, filmmakers, content creators and brands.
It’s the last days of summer, which means we’re right around the corner from getting back to the hustle and bustle of life. With only a few more weeks to relax, we figured we would supply our followed with some sounds to help set the mood to unwind and relax.
Retro Wave is a brand new sample pack complete with creamy melodies, smooth synth pads, and lush guitar chord progressions. This sample pack contains 10 melodic loops full of over 50 individual stem loops in all! We even added in over 80 one shots that are perfect to load into samplers and drum machines.
The original dub delay plugin and still the best! Dubstation 2 takes our most popular product and adds a whole raft of new features, including a dual mode for separate control over the left and right delay times, ping-pong, a new feedback saturation algorithm, and an LFO. Along with an all-new procedural and Retina-friendly user interface and (FINALLY!) ProTools compatibility, this represents a major leap forward for one of our signature products.
All those bells and whistles aside, the heart of Dubstation is our painstaking bucket-brigade delay model. Often imitated, but never duplicated, Dubstation has been the go-to plugin for that sound for over a decade, used in thousands of commercial productions, and with good reason. With the addition of the LFO and saturation controls, Dubstation has moved in to the realm of tape delay emulation as well, and is a sonic Swiss Army knife for delay.
Two tempo-synced or free-running delay lines with feedbackl
Multiple Delay Modes
Dubstation 2 can be used as a single mono or stereo delay effect, in dual mode with separate controls for the left and right channels’ delay times and in ping-pong mode.
Classic Delay Algorithm Dubstation 2 features Audio Damage’s renowned model of bucket-brigade delay circuits, a faithful digital recreation of vintage hardware.
The user can switch between two delay time ranges, encompassing 4 to 2000 milliseconds. Frequency-response characteristics vary with delay time – a fundamental aspect of the sonic personality of analog bucket-brigade delay circuits.
Delay time can be periodically altered with an LFO, producing changes in both the time between delayed signals and their apparent pitch.
Low-cut and high-cut filters with user-controlled cutoff frequencies in the delay path offer a wide range of timbres
Analogue-style saturation with an amount control allowing for distortion from the subtle to the extreme.
Feedback User-controllable feedback ranging from almost none to full feedback of the delayed signal back into the delay lines’ inputs.
Loop Mode Causes Dubstation to endlessly play the audio currently in its delay line without alteration. Filter and saturation effects are applied to the output signal in Loop Mode.
The Reverse switch makes Dubstation reverse the current contents of its delay memory and the direction in which it records.
Blend of the processed and the dry input signal.
Gain Staging Contols
Input and output gain controls ranging from -80dB to +3dB.
Cross-Platform Preset Format
Dubstation 2 utilizes an XML-based preset manager. Work between multiple systems without troubles, make a preset on your desktop machine and paste it to the iOS version with Handoff, easily share your creations with your friends, or make a preset bundle to sell.
Fully Resizable Hi-Dpi/Retina GUI
Dubstation 2’s vector-based GUI is resolution-agnostic, and displays the same on every system and resolution. Easily resize the UI (per instance) to match your visual needs, from postage stamp to poster-sized.
Changes in v2.1.1
> Windows 32-bit version removed (RIP). Dubstation is now 64-bit only on all platforms.
Fixes in v2.1.1
> Channel configuration improved to deal with a bug that mainly expressed itself in the VST3 version in some hosts, but may be present elsewhere. If you had any problems with Dubstation not sending audio out one channel, this will probably fix it.

THE SWACQ PACK
From trap influenced electro and bass house to euphonic festival anthems, this man does it all – and does it all with remarkable skill. There has been a big spotlight shining on SWACQ over the past year, and there is no longer any doubt that he sits comfortably among the top sound designers and producers in the world, standing out as a shining star in the vast sea of dance music greats. Proving himself time and time again with releases appearing on Musical Freedom, STMPD, Spinnin, Dim Mak, Ultra, Protocol, Atlantic, and more, there has never been a more optimal time for a SWACQ producer pack.
These past few years have been a rollercoaster for SWACQ after catching the ear of Tiësto who has taken SWACQ under his wing, collaborating on multiple songs and remixes together.
In the SWACQ PACK we are releasing an extensive selection of extremely rare and sought after sounds, proven to turn your song into a banger, drag and drop, as displayed by SWACQ’s string of signature remixes for the likes of Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, The Black Eyed Peas, and Gucci Mane, as well as collaborations with Will.I.Am, Timmy Trumpet, Justin Mylo, Don Diablo, and Tiesto.
SWACQ is dominating the ranks of the top producers in the industry, and now is your chance to get inside his mind and inside his computer, by downloading THE SWACQ PACK;
A collection of his most infamous sounds.
You will be blown away with this download. To give you an idea of what’s possible with these sounds, the demo track in the trailer is entirely comprised from this producer pack.
SAMPLE PACK: There’s a lot of producers stuck playing catch up to trends in dance music… SWACQ is not one of them. SWACQ is firmly set on designing his own unique sounds, and it’s working for him. At the age of 28, he’s already become one of the hottest producers in the world, having worked with everyone from Steve Aoki, to the Backstreet Boys.
These are his samples, direct from SWACQ’s tracks.
The SWACQ PACK is BIG, a full library of 300+ samples in every category you could ask for:
Synth loops, bass loops, bass shots, synth shots, kicks, hard kicks, SIGNATURE kicks from SWACQ’s biggest tracks, crashes, percussion, snares, claps, hats, 808’s, live claps loops, perc loops, hat & cymbal loops, full drum loops, clap loops, cinematic drum loops, shaker & tambourine loops, marching band loops, carnival drum loops, breakbeat loops, string loops & shots, tumbi loops & shots, zurna’s, organs, brasses, guitars, risers, atmospheres, crowds, impacts, alarms, drum builds, shouts, fills and a miscellaneous folder.
Plus some bonus ‘stupid recordings’ that SWACQ couldn’t resist tossing in, everything from ‘manager snoring’ to ‘my s****y chair’
Sylenth: SWACQ SYLENTH ESSENTIALS. Each lead, pluck, chord synth, and bass has been hand picked by SWACQ from his most successful releases, including Horny Horns, No Strings Attached, Switch Back… and of course PARTY TIME. This is truly a once in a lifetime offering to get the actual sounds that built the career of this dance music heavy hitter.
Massive: You didn’t think we’d leave it at just ONE synth did you? In this collection of Massive presets SWACQ hands over a goldmine of bass sounds from his biggest collabs. Also included is two bass presets and the appetizing pluck from ‘Switch Back.’
BONUS Spire Preset: Originally planning to omit spire, SWACQ couldn’t help but hook us up with one of his go-to presets used all over his tracks. This is a toothy bass patch, not to be passed up by any Spire user, which perfectly fills the needed frequency spectrum on bass oriented dance drops.
BONUS LOGIC CHANNEL STRIPS: Use the exact racks and settings handmade by SWACQ to achieve the coveted SWACQ fatness and texture.
“The process of using the kinda distortion that i use, the kinda reverb, thats what makes my sound me.” – SWACQ
We are incredibly pleased to roll out a producer pack from heavy hitter Ibranovski.
Working with the likes of Afrojack, Blasterjaxx, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Ibranovski is no stranger to delivering quality goods. Known for keeping a goldmine of OG house music sounds close to his chest, he has never let these out to the world… Until now.
ABSORP SOUND V.1 marks a new beginning for 789ten, as we embark into the new school House Music territory that so many of our fans have been asking for. For those of you wanting to up your house music game and get some nasty sounds, this pack is for you.
Brand new, and all encompassing.
Tutorial: Watch IBRANOVSKI produce a house heater in his own swaggy style, using samples and presets that you will get for your own songs in this exclusive producer pack. A serious tutorial, from a brilliant producer, aimed at really getting in depth on production techniques not covered anywhere else on the web. Pounding drums, dirty house leads, driving basslines, filthy fills, and ahead of the curve house music tricks are just a few things covered here. The song IBRANOVSKI creates is reminiscent of the Chicken Soup era, but with a modern twist.
Sample Pack: This is our first time offering samples in this genre of house! Dirty and nasty sounds from the guy who specializes in making dancefloors move.
Serum Presets: IBRA BASS SLAPPER: A gritty G House lazer bass with extreme LFO adjustment by Ibranovski.
IBRA GHETTO MAINSTREAM LEAD: The screeching go-to lead for Ibranovski’s drops. Perfect in any octave to instantly jack things up a notch.
IBRA LA SCREAMER: Years of Ibranovski’s house music production experience have led to his ability to create perfectly distorted, utterly gnarly leads.
IBRA MEH FILTH LEAD: If Garrix and Skrillex had a baby… Sprinkle ‘wub’ elements into your Ghetto House tracks with this filthy hybrid sound.
IBRA REESE YEH: A huge bass patch that ca be used for widening up a breakdown and creating that magic moment before the build up.
IBRA SWING BASS HOUSE: By using a reverb with a small size, and hard clipping distortion among other effects, Ibranovski perfects a haunting bass house lead of superb quality. This sound is straight up HAZARDOUS.
IBRA UK BORN: Ibranovski doesn’t need to be born in the UK to hit the nail on the head for this style.
IBRA VERY BOUNCY BASS: Right on the money, this is the house music bass sound everyones after in 2020.
FL Project File: FL users rejoice… this is the project file verbatim from the heater that Ibranovski produced live in the tutorial. This is an extremely helpful and rare opportunity to be handed the roadmap to a G House bagner, straight from the studio of the most sought after name in the game: IBRANOVSKI.
BONUS Masterchain: As a special add-on for the engineering buffs out there, Ibranovski included a mastering chain that he uses on a daily basis to get his tracks on that festival-ready level of fatness.
BONUS Valhalla Room Preset: Only producers will know what we mean when we say this reverb setting is EXTREME. It’s important to take risks in music, and Ibranovski is not shy to push the limits and get weird. With the depth jacked up at 99.1% this reverb preset transforms any mundane sound into something outer worldly in a way most of us would not have thought to do before.
Some highlights from this tutorial:
Ibranovski’s Arrangement Techniques
Creative sample manipulation
How to move quick using minimal processing
Countless useful FL Studio tricks (features and shortcuts most people probably don’t even know exist)
Making samples fit in the mix using pitch instead of on signal processing. Seems simple, but this is truly an art form.
How to figure out the key of a sample using FL Newtone
Using a FL built in effector FX module to fatten up bass, couldn’t believe the difference this made! Night and day!
