*Choose a beat*
Preview and select from T-Pain-approved professionally crafted beats, featuring everything from pulsing bass-driven kits to slow jams to otherworldly dance anthems.

*Load the default song*
Each beat provides a full set of patterns that correspond to song parts like Intro, Verse, and Chorus. When you choose your beat, a prearranged song appears on your Beat track to get you up and running quickly.

*Arrange your patterns*
Use the pattern chooser to swap in pattern variations, add or delete patterns to change your song's length, or arrange a whole new song from scratch.

*Edit in iDrum*
Want to get advanced? Personalize your beat by editing patterns directly within iDrum: T-Pain Edition, or create your own patterns and kits!

*Do a Sound Check*
Put on your headphones, plug in a microphone, and let Sound Check walk you through the steps of getting your computer ready to record.

*Record your vocals*
Sing, rap or freestyle over your beat on two different vocal tracks, then edit or do retakes until you're perfectly satisfied with every word.

*Add The T-Pain Effect*
For more vocal flavor, bring T-Pain's distinctive sound to your vocal tracks, tweaking the hardness control to dial in just the right sound.

*Adjust your mix*
Balance the volume levels of your vocals and beat with the mixer controls, then build intensity by adding Beat Drops that briefly silence the beat for dramatic effect.

Publish your song straight to the web via SoundCloud, keeping Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks in the loop!

Tune in to all tracks made with the T-Pain Engine. Every track submitted to the The T-Pain Effect SoundCloud Group will be eligible for special contests and more, be sure to submit yours!
