“For me, templates have changed the game,” Kenny Beats tells us.
“I was creating templates before I even knew they were templates. I would just set up things so that every time I opened up my program—whether I was using FL or Logic or Ableton—they were always there.”
Kenny Beats is an iconic producer who has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, including the likes of Vince Staples, Rico Nasty, and Denzel Curry. In the video above, he sits down with us to walk through his approach to creating templates that accelerate his workflow.
“Vocal templates, main templates for your program, a specific template for your beats or for when you’re recording—these things can be a huge, huge step to moving faster in the studio and being more productive every single day when you’re making music,” Kenny Beats says.
