How to Make Beats : The Ultimate Beginners Guide

Well you’re in good fortune – in this article we will cover what you have to go ahead and how to do as such. The main thing you will require is your hardware. You should have a PC, Digital Audio Workstation programming (DAW), and a MIDI controller (discretionary, yet profoundly suggested).


For your PC, don’t sweat over MAC or PC. Both can do the activity well. The civil argument on which of the two is better truly just comes down to inclination. By and by, I like the MAC better, yet in the event that you ask my manager he’ll disclose to you the PC is the place it’s at.

Give the level headed discussion a chance to proceed…

I will state that MAC’s are significantly more costly. In the event that you don’t exactly have the cash for one – don’t worry – run with PC. You can likely get a PC with a similar execution specs for a large portion of the cost.


A great deal of music programming is serious work and will gobble up your PC’s assets, so ensure you have some tolerable hard drive limit and memory (RAM). You will require no less than 4GB of RAM, however I profoundly suggest 8 Gig or more, and in addition recovering an up hard drive.

Advanced Audio Workstations (DAW)

A Digital Audio Workstation is any product stage that enables you to make, alter, record, and playback sound/music on a PC. It’s ordinarily alluded to in this article as a DAW.

On the off chance that you claim a PC I would state unquestionably get FL Studio (Fruity Loops) for your first DAW programming. It’s altogether less expensive than its rivals and is an incredible program to get the hang of beginning. Contingent upon your financial plan, diverse forms of FL Studio run from $50 to $200 – get whatever adaptation you can manage. You  can  also use a best microphone  for that..

In the event that you claim a genuinely new MAC your PC ought to have Garageband pre-introduced. Garageband is essentially only a stripped down rendition of Logic Pro, which is extraordinary for a fledgling. My recommendation is take in the intricate details of Garageband until the point when you begin to feel good with it and afterward move up to Logic Pro.

I prefer to utelize Ableton Live and Logic Pro every day. Ableton Live is likely the most entire DAW accessible, however I would prescribe holding off on obtaining it until the point that you increase some understanding.

MIDI Controller

A MIDI Controller is essentially a gadget that enables you to convey and work with the virtual instruments in your DAW. Frequently times a MIDI controller comes as a console with standard high contrast piano keys. You will utilize this console to make your beats.

Oxygen 49 MIDI Controller

My choice is the  M-Audio Oxygen 49 MIDI console. I ponder $150, however you can discover MIDI sheets for as modest as $50. My suggestion would be getting a controller with no less than 49 keys.

On the off chance that you can’t bear the cost of one there are still approaches to make music in some of these DAW’s without it, however it’s a noteworthy torment in the butt. Help yourself out and get a MIDI controller.

A considerable measure of music stores offer utilized apparatus for shabby. On the off chance that I were on a financial plan – that would be the primary spot I would search for a ton of this hardware.

Screen Speakers

In fact you don’t need to have screen speakers to begin making beats. You could utilize any speakers that attach to your PC, yet believe me when I say you will need to get a couple of value screen speakers eventually – for this situation, the sooner the better.

KRK Studio Monitors speakers are professionally intended for studio utilize and designed to give you the genuine tonal (level recurrence reaction) characteristics of a sound flag. They are urgent to getting a tight, clean blend on your beats and not to be over looked.

KRK Studio Monitors speakers are professionally intended for studio utilize and built to give you the genuine tonal (level recurrence reaction) characteristics of a sound flag. They are essential to getting a tight, clean blend on your beats and not to be over looked.

I possess a couple of KRK Rokit 5’s – cost me a $150 a piece, yet they’re justified regardless of each penny.

Sound Interface

MBox Audio Interface – If you need to record and playback sound at high caliber with low inertness you’ll soon find that your PCs sound card isn’t capable. For better outcomes you’ll require a sound interface which as a result assumes control over the activity of your sound card.

This is fundamentally a center point that will enable you to utilize your simple rigging (like your speakers and most amplifiers) in conjunction with your PC.

I utilize a MBox 2 that I purchased with Pro Tools A while back.

There are numerous sound interfaces available to look over so a considerable measure relies upon your necessities. Do you have to record different tracks all in the meantime or would you be able to escape with only two mono tracks? Choose a financial plan and shop for an interface that suites your requirements.


As you turn into a maker you will without a doubt be brought into the universe of outsider modules. These product programs are important devices and can be anything from virtual instruments and sound libraries, to impacts and sound processors like compressors and Equalizers.
