Hip Hop Production Software  -  Different Strokes For Different Folks

Man, when I tell you that there are so many different options on the market for hip hop production software choices that it ain't funny, you can literally get lost in the sauce with all of the available choices. Product A has an emulation of this mixing board, Product B has the downloadable content of loops and sample upon purchase, and Product C gives you free lifetime upgrades.

In the end homie, it's all going to boil down to which hip hop production software choice would work best for you and your personal situation, as well as which software choice would present the ideal workflow so that you can get them beats done and crank them out like the hit factory. Let's discuss some product features that will shed some light on the different options that are out there.

Ease of Use

What's the learning curve looking like? Is there a bible sized manual included with the software program, or can you easily "figure things out" upon first firing up the program? Huge learning curves can prove to be a deterrent to wanting to use software to make your beats, but at the same time you don't want a fisher price toy xylophone to make beats with either... So I would suggest that you don't spend a lot of money with your first choice of program, and either supplement that choice by downloading a demo or watching Youtube videos on the different software beat makers so that you can get a feel and an actual user review of the software in question.

What's The Feature Set Looking Like

Does the software come with plug-ins (compressors, reverbs, limiters, eq's)? What is the size of the included sound library, or is there a sound library included at all? Is the program compatible with your current platform (Mac or PC)? Can you complete the entire track from concept to completion "in the box" or will you have to export a .wav file of your song into another program for further processing? A total in the box solution that has all that you need to make a track would be ideal, but also I understand working with what you can afford and making the best of it until you can do better. The key point is that you WORK at mastering your hip hop production software, whatever the choice is.

Have the Bugs Been Worked Out?

It's usually advisable to wait until the first release has passed so that the initial bug fixes can be addressed, and then you go from there and can usually ensure a solid user operation experience.

Your first choice of hip hop production software might not be your last and final choice, but make every effort to do your homework and see what's up with all of the choices out there. In the end, it's not gonna necessarily be about what you use, but instead how you use it. Better Beats Ahead.
