I’ve been involved in the music production industry for quite a number of years now. I started out when I was just a teenager who had a flair of creativity and a spark for music. Eventually hip hop beats became my primary focus. I knew that I wanted to start making hip hop beats. Since then, I have not looked back and things have been going very well for me. I recently began licensing beats to amateur and professional hip hop artists, just to give you an idea of where I am. Only two years ago I was in the position you’re in now, looking to start making hip hop beats. I am a fast learning you could say.
Contrary to popular belief, you can start learning how to onmake hip hop beats online pretty quickly. It used to be that you needed to invest an enormous amount of time and money in order to produce hip hop beats: you would have to find a local studio, book a session, pay up to $3000, and you never know if it is going to turn out good at all because how would you get experience first? With the invention of computers and desktop sequencing software, this eliminated the need for studios pretty quickly. The problem then became competition between software makers, essentially scaring off beginners to the art of digital music because they are all priced above $200.
This was a problem until the internet came along. Not right away though, because people had slow connections for a long time, but nowadays a beginner can get started for almost no cost. There are flash games online that let you play around and make a few beats, but most free versions of software don’t let you save your beats.
One website that I like a lot when it comes to making your own hip hop and rap beats is called Sonic Producer. This website has a cost of membership of only $29, which is pretty phenomenal when it comes to beat making software. Most people who become members always say they think the software itself is worth ten times as much as the membership cost. I don’t know about you, but I’m the type of person that needs the most bang for my buck, the most value for my dollar. A membership to Sonic Producer gives you exactly what you need if you’re a beginner looking to start making hip hop beats during this economic downturn.
What if you decide making beats isn’t for you? No problem, they’ll give you your money back. But you have to understand that the membership cost covers: the beat software, a HUGE preset sound and beat library to get you making sick beats faster, and thousands of beat making lessons and other video tutorials that will teach you everything you need to know. I have seen beginners go from no experience to selling beats to artists within three months using this website, all thanks to the free instruction that comes with membership. Sonic Producer is an excellent option for beginners.
Another option you have is the flash game called Beaterator by Rockstar games. I have not used it myself, but I have heard good things about it from a prominent blog. They are making a PSP version that is being promoted by Timbaland so that sounds like it will be cool. According to the blog it has all the bells and whistles that high end programs have.
As you can see, there are many options for getting started making your own beats. If all else fails, you can download the free trial of FL studio, the only downside being you can’t save. There is an option for everybody, so start making hip hop beats online today.
