Welcome to the first episode of The Cookbook with Austin producer Trupica.

The Cookbook is where music producers share their “secret recipe” for a great track within their scene. It’s less about the formula and more about the tools and work flow to expose tips and inspiration!

The Cookbook with Trupica

1 THEMES

Usually 80–124 bpm for tropical daytime jams. Hip-hop rhythms work well for lower tempos and four to the floor beats are a good place to start for higher tempos in that range.

2 EQUIPMENT

Ableton. Drums are sampled or arranged in EZDrummer. Korg M1 for great pianos. Massive or Sylenth for synth programming. Simpler for vocal
sampling. Waves plugins for audio effects.

3 LIVE

Akai APC40 for clip triggering and Akai MPK49 for live synths and drumming. Plugged into a custom Ableton set with 4 main tracks. Scarlett 2i4 for cue functionality.

“Starting up my new music project Trupica with this fun track. I remixed Taylor Swift’s Blank Space pop sensation into a bouncy 100 bpm summer trop jam. Catchy mallet hooks and warm atmospheric depth combine to keep the pool party rolling.”

Let’s take a vacation!
