How to Make Hip hop Beats Quickly for Beginners
I’ve been involved in the music production industry for quite a number of years now. I started out when I was just a teenager who had a flair of creativity and a spark for music. Eventually hip hop beats became my primary focus. I knew that I wanted to start making hip hop beats. Since then, I have not looked back and things have been going very well for me. I recently began licensing beats to amateur and professional hip hop artists, just to give you an idea of where I am. Only two years ago I was in the position you’re in now, looking to start making hip hop beats. I am a fast learning you could say.
Contrary to popular belief, you can start learning how to make hip hop beats pretty quickly. It used to be that you needed to invest an enormous amount of time and money in order to produce hip hop beats: you would have to find a local studio, book a session, pay up to $3000, and you never know if it is going to turn out good at all because how would you get experience first? With the invention of computers and desktop sequencing software, this eliminated the need for studios pretty quickly. The problem then became competition between software makers, essentially scaring off beginners to the art of digital music because they are all priced above $200.
This was a problem until the internet came along. Not right away though, because people had slow connections for a long time, but nowadays a beginner can get started for almost no cost. There are flash games online that let you play around and make a few beats, but most free versions of software don’t let you save your beats.
One website I like personally is called Sonic Producer. They make it really easy for beginners to start making their own beats rather quickly. They charge $29 for membership but thats not bad compared to some of the software out there.
Another option you have is the flash game called Beaterator by Rockstar games. I have not used it myself, but I have heard good things about it from a prominent blog. They are making a PSP version that is being promoted by Timbaland so that sounds like it will be cool. If you want to learn more about making hip hop beats online, check out beat makers online.
Finally, if all else fails I’d suggest downloading a trial version of something like FL Studio. You will be able to make beats but you cannot save. There are many other free versions and trials out there, you just have to look around.
