Making Your Own Rap Beats
Music is a very important aspect of life. Without it, life would be dull and sounds will be boring and meaningless. Music bring life to sounds we hear everyday, whether it’s the birds chirping or the sounds of feet stomping. And this inspires others to start creating music on their own. Given the many genres of music today people pursue what they appreciate, and one genre that is widely popular and liked today is hip-hop. Hip-hop rose in popularity in the 1970’s in the streets of Bronx, New York. DJ’s wanted to create something new by adding lyrics to Beats and get crowds to rock with their sound. As more and more people started to appreciate this type of music which involved Rap Beats, more rappers were born busting out the cleverest lines that rhyme and syncing them to these Beats. The culture inspired many to start creating their own beats and writing lyrics to go with them. But what is you suddenly though that you want to start making your own. How would you do this? Being passionate about the genre is important but how will you learn to make these Rap Beats?
There are many ways to start making Rap Beats. One way is to learn a drum instrument. Learning the drums can help a lot because knowing the different variations of drum sounds is the essence to the Beats created today. This is true as even some popular hip-hop songs make use of the drums rather than mixing beats on a mixer or computer. It depends on the kind of sound you’d want of course.
Another way to learn is learning beat-making equipment. This is the more modern approach, as you won’t have to learn the drums at all. These devices help you make beats by simply changing the sound of your preference and tapping buttons or keys on a keyboard. You can also record the beats that you make so you can alter them or tweak them later on by adding different or more sounds to compliment the bass. Brands like Roland, Korg, and Yamaha are popular beat makers. This could cost a lot though, not to say that it is not a great investment if you’re serious about producing your own free rap Beats.
There is one last way to learn how to make beats, and this method could save you a lot of money too. The past decade and advancement of technology has brought us many software that allow and teach you to create rap and hip-hop beats. Software such as Dub Pro, Sonic Producer pro, and Acid Pro come with ready made sound and beats for you to make use of. These beats and sample sounds can be easily looped and you can change the pace and tempo as you go on. It might sound complicating at first, but once you pick up the hang of it you’ll be able to start making your own beats in no time at all.
So it’s really up to you which path to take. But if you are a passionate music lover and love the hip-hop culture, then maybe it’s time to start making your own beats and become the next Kanye West in the industry.
