How To Get The Best Out Of The Dubturbo Sound Production Software Download
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You are thinking about buying Dubturbo, the sound production software directed at the beginner, but there is not too much written about how to get the best out of it. There is only promotional stuff and you have to buy the program to get into the members area to see what it can do. Not anymore, as this article will show you how to get the best out of it without buying any other software in order to make the most compelling music you can imagine.

In order to produce interesting and varied music, you need to be able to mess around, sonically, with your samples.

In order to get the best out of this computer music recording software, you need to download Audacity. It is free and has a lot of features for processing audio that Dubturbo does not.

Dubturbo is basically a sequencer with built in drum and keyboard sounds. This is all well and good when just starting out making beats, but as time goes by, you want to be able to put your sonic stamp and creativity on your music. This is where Audacity comes in.

This assumes that your laptop or PC has a built in microphone.

When you open up a song that you are working on in Dubturbo, and you want to change the sound of, for example, the kick drum to make it more powerful or add reverb to it (and none of the sound samples given in the program work with what you want to do) open up Audacity.

What you need to do is locate the drum sound (or whatever sound you want to change) in Dubturbo, solo it and put it on a loop. Keep playing it and go to Audacity. Make a new 16 bit, 44.1 kHz stereo track (by default it is at this anyway) in Audacity and press record. The kick will now be recorded into Audacity. Stop the recording and stop the loop in Dubturbo. Go back to Audacity and select just one of the kick drum beats. Delete the rest of the file or copy and paste it to another track so you can mess around with these later. With just one beat on the stereo track you can now add reverb, compression, delays, reverse or anything else you want to do with it. (Reverse cymbals or guitar works well.) Then, to get your new samples back into Dubturbo, just follow the instructions provided in the help tutorial videos included with the software.

In order to use your own voice, your own guitar or even violin, you can just record into Audacity using the built in microphone, mess around with it and upload it into the Dubturbo beat creator as well.

This now means that you have a fully functional program to make beats with loads of effects and processing at a fraction of the cost of professional recording software like Pro Tools and Cubase.

Please note that at the moment, you can not upload your own samples using a Mac but this will be included in the next update. When Dubturbo is bought today, you get 20 years of updates free.

Glad to be of service Ian. If you're just starting out, it's better to do it this way as you might not keep it up. Then move onto the likes of Cubase or Pro Tools when you get better. :)
