How to Use
Ready to make your own beats? Got your software,
but not sure where to start?
There's no doubt that beat maker software
programs can be complicated and take some
time to master, but with a little practice you'll
soon find that creating your own music is a
fun and enjoyable experience that really isn't
all that difficult.
The first thing you need to do has nothing to
do with music, but it is very important. You
must always check out the specifications on
your software beat maker program to be sure
that your computer can run it properly. Don't
waste your money or your time on software
that your computer simply can't use.
Secondly, you need to decide on which genre
of music you're interested in. Do you prefer
RnB, reggae, jazz, or country? Or maybe
you're into Blues, hip-hop, punk or techno.
There are so many types of music that it's
hard to even make a complete list, but
whatever you like, you'll want to be sure that
your software beat maker program supports
it. There is nothing more frustrating than
buying software that won't let you create the
type of music that you enjoy most.
Ready to start creating some sound? Then
begin with the bass line, which is an essential
component of every type of music. The bass
line is the foundation of your beats and gives
them their rhythm, so spend some time on
this step to be sure you're satisfied and like
what you hear before you move on.
