First off, it’s not as hard as you think! It’s super easy actually and I’m going to show you how you can create rap beats super fast with the same software I use.
If you’re really keen you could even be laying down your own dope, studio quality tracks within the next 5 to 10 minutes from reading this tutorial. Now, before we get started, you’re going to need what every producer uses and that’s music production software.
These days, new software gets released almost every month – some good and some aren’t worth wasting your money on! I’ve literally spent thousands of dollars on music production gear, software and instruments which honestly in my opinion was a huge waste of money!!
All I really need and all I ever use these days is software – it has everything you need to make rap, hip hop, techno the lot.
What’s the Best Software for Making Rap Beats You Ask?
If I had to start all over again I’d only buy 2 lots of software – no instruments, keyboards ect JUST THESE TWO –
- CUBASE – retails for around $478 and up!
- DUBturbo 4.0 –
$39.95– Save $10 here
If you’re just starting out, I’d first buy DUBturbo 2.0 because it has everything you need to make rap beats or any kind of beat you need. Has a shit load of free sound kits and effects so you can be as creative as you want.
You only really need Cubase when you become more advanced. DUBturbo also comes with a bunch of video tutorials that teach you a LOT about making music with beat making software.
Check out the Gangsters Paradise remix made with DUBturbo 2.0(old version) –
For more videos and a full feature list of DUBturbo 4.0 check out the home page here.
If those two music programs don’t tickle your fancy then here are some things to look for when searching for music production software –
- Easy to Use & Comes with tutorials
- Studio Quality (Professional) Sound
- Sound Kits and Effects Built-in(nothing worse than having to buy kits all the time)
- Allows You to Import Your Own Kits
- Sequencer – For Drawing In Your Patterns
- At Least a 4 Octave Keyboard – (use your computer keyboard)
- Ability To Draw in Beats or Record them LIVE
Don’t even bother with FREE beat making software trust me, it’s not worth it. They either leave nasty things on your computer or they end up making you buy the full version because the free one doesn’t have the features you need to make beats.
Again, if you’re new and want something that is easy to use and something that actually teaches you how to make rap or any style of music I recommend DUBturbo, it’s hands down the best and it’s under $40.
Imagine the look on your friends face when you show them the sick beats you made. OR do what I do and sell your beats online for REAL MONEY..(DUBturbo also has a VIP Platinum package which comes with a how to sell your beats guide – highly recommended!!!)
Do yourself a favour and buy DUBturbo 2.0 you wont regret it! Use this link and save an extra $10 + get $400 worth of freebies (I have no idea how long the discount will last but if the offer has finished I’m really sorry – even at full price, it’s still worth it.)
Are you the next super star???
Who knows, you could be the next big thing!
