Dont Buy Dubturbo Till You Read This

Okay, so you’ve decided that you want to make beats online on your computer but you do not know which sound production software to choose. What follows is my experience with Dubturbo computer music recording software.

I went to their website from my own affiliate link, and was shown their sales page. I scrolled down to the “download now” yellow button and was taken to the clickbank secure order form. Here, I entered my credit card details, address and email address. The email address is so that you can be sent the code for entering the members area. I was then asked if I wanted to buy a license for selling my creations and some more sound kits. I said no to the extras and the code was then sent to my email address so that I could enter the members area and download the program.

In the members area you are again asked if you want any of the extras but I ignored them and downloaded the program onto my hard drive. I chose the Mac option. I used one of the tutorials within the members area so that I was sure that I was installing it correctly. Dubturbo installed and I opened it up. This whole sequence took about ten minutes.

When Dubturbo opens, you are introduced to the sequencer. This is where you enter your beats and make your music. The sequencer has buttons, for help, tutorial videos, transport controls, bar count, BPM, 16 tracks, drum pads and the keyboard along the bottom. Pressing the videos button opens up a new window with tutorial videos to get you started. The videos last about ten minutes each and show you how to enter sounds, change drum kits, how to use the keyboard and how to upload your own sounds. After messing about with the software, changing BPM, changing bar count, using different drum and keyboard sounds, it became clear that my system wasn’t too compatible with Dubturbo as it was slow and crashed. I emailed support and got a reply within 2 hours! It just said to give Dubturbo time to change from keyboard back to drums and allow a few seconds for the system to update. This worked but I was impressed more with the support.

I then decided that I wanted to upload my own samples into Dubturbo. I watched the video (it was for PC) but thought I could just follow the same route. It did not work. I emailed support again and got a reply within 12 hours - still better than the Pro Tools support which I have had to wait over a week sometimes! And they are supposed to be one of the best manufacturers.

The reply said that at the moment, you are unable to import your own sounds into Dubturbo on a Mac but it is being sorted out for the next update. The next update is also going to allow you to record directly into the system using the laptop microphone or a microphone plugged into the sound card. This was no good to me as a Mac user and I thought about getting a refund. However, at the moment, when you buy Dubturbo now, you get 20 years of updates free! This will definitely increase as more and more functionality is added so I thought I may as well keep it.

All in all, I am impressed with this hip hop beat maker, and think that it is the best progam to make beats with on the market but feel that, at the moment, PC users get the best deal.
