It's Easier Then You Think

  1. 1. It's Easier Then You Think When people ask what it takes to make a good beat on a beat maker, there is really no simple answer. The bottom line is that a beat maker should be able to do what you want it to do. In other words, when you have a beat stuck in your head and you want to get out for the rest of the world to hear, you better have the right software for the job. In saying that, it is nice to know that you can get the right beat maker for the job without spending a lot of money. In fact, you can get the right beat maker for the job and have that beat exported to mp3 in a matter of minutes. So you truly can get your rap beat or hip-hop beat out to the masses in less time then was ever imagined even a few years ago. A good beat maker should have some standard features available at your fingertips. These include a 16-track sequencer. Each track should have its own volume control and any effect including filter envelopes, echo, reverb etc should be accessible to each individual track. You will also want access to the beats per minute or BPM control. This is very important of course because each song, beat or mix will have a different tempo. Above and beyond this, you will want your beat maker to have an easy export to mp3 button and plenty of sounds for you to work with. Make sure the beat maker you purchase comes with plenty of sound files for you to play with and easy export options. A good beat maker will also have some stand-alone features. This means that you will be able to write a piano-key set which would allow you to write bass-lines, piano parts, guitar parts and synthesizer sounds, all music maker dubstep tutorial without going to a third-party software. This makes the beat maker stand-alone and will allow you to provide the hook, verse and percussion parts all from one interface while no doubt providing a mix-down for final mastering. The best part is that this can all be provided for less than $40. Making a good beat with a beat maker is much easier then it used to be because all the tools for doing so now come in an inexpensive multi-track sequencer interface with mp3 export options. Writing the beat itself, will require a little creativity and some patience. When writing a beat, it is always a good idea to start with the drum sounds or the percussion. You don't have to finish the percussion part, but adding the hi-hat, bass drum and sneer parts would be a good idea. From there, you can add a hook, which can include a bass-line, synth-sounds, guitar parts etc. Don't over complicate this part, just try to put some catchy notes together so the listener wants to keep listening. Beyond that, remember that writing a beat on a beat maker is going to be an organic process and the song should evolve over time. If you find that the song or hip-hop beat just isn't going as planned don't be afraid to trash the project and start over. The point it that you don't want to be a perfectionist when writing music because this may ruin the creative flow and stop you from throwing out that incredible hook that is everyone is waiting to listen to.
