Program For Beats – With Many Beat Making Programs, Which Will Work For You?

You know, there has never been a better time than right now for anyone who wants to get started with making beats, creating videos, writing books or becoming a photographer; as technological advancements have allowed the once unattainable tools required to excel in these artistically creative fields more accessible to the masses. This definitely applies to a program for beats.

So, young kemosabe, how will you determine which program to make beats will work best for you and your situation? I think that ultimately your choice of software will come down to a few key aspects:

Cost Effectiveness

Ease of Use

User Accessibility

The combination of these three aspects should be used as a guideline to allow you to focus on which of the many software beat making titles would provide the best fit for you and your workflow, so let's discuss each in detail so that you can make the right choice as a starting point to getting your own music production setup on and poppin.

Cost Effectiveness

How you gonna get anything going without having the money homey? Better yet, I'll bet you probably think that the more money that you spend on beat making programs, the better beats you will create. WRONG! Absolutely wrong actually. The amount of money you spend is not necessarily a factor at all, as there are a few low cost beat makers out there that will provide damn near the same functionality and features as the higher priced titles. When starting out, don't put out any more than you can afford, and I would recommend that you stay under $100 with your first initial software choice, so as to get your feet wet with music production, and not to go broke in the process.

Ease of Use

You do not want a software beat maker that has an extremely high learning curve, as more than likely if you can't grasp how to make beats with the software that you choose, or it takes you a long time to get the fundamentals of the software figured out, you'll probably become discouraged from making beats altogether. Remember that we are in it to win it, and giving up before you even get started ain't an option, so we definitely want a program for beats that has a simple easy to use interface, as well as some tutorials to get you up and running quick. Don't expect to be Timbaland overnight here, but definitely in time grasshopper, you will be making pro level commercial beats just like the greatest.

User Accessibility

What computer platform are you currently working on? That will be a major determining factor as to which software option you should choose, because many software choices are platform specific to either Windows or Mac systems, such as FL Studio which is PC only, and Logic Studio which is Mac only. Programs like Dub Turbo, Reason, Pro Tools, and Ableton Live, they are all binary programs, meaning that you can use them on any platform you choose.

Choose wisely here according to the computer that you already have, there is no point in going out and buying a new computer just to accommodate your production setup, unless you have a computer that is outdated and not up to par.

So dude (or dudette), pick that right beat making application that will meet the criteria that you have before you, and get it on and get it in with making your own beats. To the top baby!
