Simple Beat in Soundtrap

Creating a simple beat in Soundtrap is pretty simple.

Using the pattern maker we can use the following diagram to create a simple beat.

Getting used to creating beats like this will give you a good foundation when creating a track.

Simple Beat in Soundtrap

Soundtrap is divided into 4 blocks of 4 giving us 16 squares as shown above.

These are called 16th beats or Semiquavers.

In the example beat we have:

Kick drum on the 1 and the 3

Snare on the 2 and 4

Closed Hi Hat on 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

We can go further with this by copying the pattern to the next bar and altering the beat slightly to create a variation.

Maybe change a closed hi hat for an open hi hat.

Maybe add an extra kick on one of the ‘+’ (8th) beats
