Track building, Knock style
There are very few producers out there faster than than Knock Squared on MASCHINE. Whether it’s hip hop, or house music, Knock does it all with incredible speed. Happily explaining his workflow, the producer runs through the basic-building blocks of a track, showing how quick and easy it is to sketch a beat.
