Make Beats On Your Computer – 3 Tips To Help You Make Better Beats On Your Computer With Ease

Have you ever had the desire to make beats on your computer? Did you even know that it was possible to make the very same beats and songs that you hear on the radio, all from the comfort of your own home, using nothing more than a computer, beat making software, midi keyboard, and some headphones?

Well my man, I have news for you, many of today's hottest producers have all been using nothing more than their computers and their choice of beat making software to get it in and make super tight beats; the only thing that sets them apart from yourself is that maybe they have more experience with the art of beat making than you do. Nothing more, nothing less.

The good thing about talent is that if you weren't born with it, you can work hard to obtain it. Simple enough right? You just need to learn what to do, and how to do it.

But that's not to say that you can't learn the tricks of the trade and become a dope producer in your own right, and as a matter of fact, these three tips that I will introduce you to will help you to get on your way and make beats on your computer with ease, all in a quick and logical, easy to follow fashion. Let's discuss.

1. Choose the Right Software

The software choices that are out there that will allow you to make your own beats are absolutely plentiful, and they are all enticing enough as well. I would suggest that when shopping for beat making software to make your own beats, find an even medium between quality and cost, especially if you're just starting out. Matter of fact, make sure that the quality exceeds the cost. And also, make sure that the software has the necessary built in tutorials, to teach you how to get started with making beats pronto. Find these things within your software beat making choice, and you have definitely found a winning choice.

2. Study Some Music Theory

You would be surprised at how far a little music theory will take you within the beat making world, actually knowing some music theory and understanding how to play the piano some would set you leagues ahead of many supposedly experienced producers. Having some music theory knowledge will help you to make beats on your computer much faster, because you will be able to translate what you are hearing in your head to your keyboard. Being able to make your own beats is very much so about knowing how to execute, so do not sell yourself short by not learning some theory. Mark Harrison offers some wonderful resources on the subject, Google him.

3.Practice daily

I cannot stress this enough. I have told you that being able to make beats on your computer is very much so about knowing how to execute your ideas, so here's what you need to practice daily:

  • Scales, Chords, Chord Progressions
  • Drum Programming
  • Sequencing and Arrangement
  • Instrument Selection

Practicing your scales, chords, and chord progressions will prove to be priceless. Every beat needs tight, hard hitting grooving drums, so listening to your favorite records and finding similar drum sounds within your software will be necessary. You can practice sequencing and arranging your beats by studying records as well, listening to the tempo, and analyzing the intro, verse, choruses, and bridges. And finally, learn to pay attention to the choice of instruments that your favorite producers use, and how they use those instruments together to create full tracks.

If you follow these steps, you will be able to make beats on your computer in absolutely no time at all, I can see you shining from here… Better beats ahead.
