If you ever wanted to learn the art of beat making then not so long ago you would either had to pay for some time in a recording studio or dig deep into your pockets to pay for a very expensive piece of software. Nowadays, technology has come a very long way and anyone who wants to become a beat maker can consider them self very fortunate to live in an age where there are some very good products that can help with their dreams.
There are literally hundreds of beat making software products on the market for anyone to use and make awesome beats. You can find many sites online which you can use to start beat making straight away or there are sites which you can pay to become a member and download software onto your PC. These sites provide support and some give access to instruction videos and forums to seek and ask for advice.
Entry level beat makers work best if they are downloaded and stored locally on your own computer. This way you get the best out of the beat maker’s functions. But what should you look for in a good beat maker when considering making a purchase? Well the most basic software should include a drum sampler, sequencer and a keyboard with three or four Octaves. Access to samples which have been pre made should also be included. Always enquire with the software creators what support they provide.
So what’s the point of a Beat Maker? Any artist worth their salt knows that to get noticed you need recordings of your tracks. With a beat maker anyone can within a reasonable time start laying down awesome sounding tunes and then add their vocals. It’s a sure fire way to get your talent noticed. If you would like to become a Music Producer then beat making software combined with online tutorials is a great platform to get the basics of music production without paying a fortune.
You may be thinking that idea of creating a number one album from your own home recording studio is a bit far-fetched. I suggest that you look up artists such as Mike Posner or Daniel Beddingfield as they combined a number of tools including beat making software to create their first albums. In the case of Mike Posner, he released his album via Myspace and it went viral. He is now on his way to becoming an established Hip Hop Artist. Beat Makers are a great tool in getting those on a budget some of the exposure they so desperately require.
