Make Your Own Music Beats
If you consider yourself musically creative, you've probably wanted to do your own album, or at least a few songs of your own. The problem starts when you've never done that before, and you don't know where to begin. Well, any goo song has to start with a catchy beat. In fact, if you were to isolate just the beat out of any one of the top ten popular songs from the last decade, you'd probably be able to tell what song it was just from the beat. What if you could make your own music beats at home?
Before the advent of affordable home computers, you would have had to go to a studio, hire a producer, and let other people take creative control of your ideas. Sounds like a great idea, right-- pay a studio for time, pay a producer for beats, and you don't get total control over the finished product? You're kidding, right? Get real- who has the kind of money to outlay literally thousands of dollars before you even hear the finished product?
You can make your own music beats at home on your computer for a fraction of the cost of a studio. There are several software options out there for any aspiring artist to take advantage of. Of course, there is a wide range of programs, with widely varying costs: and generally speaking, you get what you pay for. Free programs don't cost you anything, but they may not come with very many features or samples. Extraordinarily expensive programs may offer bells and whistles, but you end up paying for features you don't need. A decent beat maker program can be had for as little as $30.
This type of software allows you to eschew the thousands of dollars worth of equipment that most people buy right off the bat. You can get started right away, and have professional quality results in as little as an hour or so. Beginners especially are encouraged to make your own music beats at home, since most programs offer video tutorials, or at the very least detailed instructions for how to make the program work from start to finish.
It's pretty amazing when you think about the fact that you cant take a laptop computer, a pair of headphones and a head full of ideas and make your own music beats with a few keystrokes. A few years ago, this simply wasn't possible. Thanks to the innovation of computer programmers, it is now a reality.
