By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

If you want to make your own free beats instrumentals, then look no further – this guide is going to show you how. Specifically, we will take about the software you'll need, what steps you need to take to begin composing, and how to improve your skills even further. By the time you have finished reading this article, you will know how to begin creating your own beats.

So let's get started.

First, you will need to get yourself a Digital Audio Workstation (commonly referred to as a DAW). If you want to keep costs down, then you can start out with a free trial. The main limitation is not being able to save your creations. If you want a professional level setup, consider investing in either Ableton Live or Reason 4.0. These can be costly, however. If you need a cheaper option, consider using FL studio.

Next, you need to know how to begin making your own beats. You will start by creating the drum track. How to do this will depend on the DAW you have chosen to work with – so you will need to consult the manual if you're unsure. It's a good idea to include bass drums, snares, and the hi-hat. This will give you a good starting rhythm to compose your beat over.

Once you are happy with your drums, it's time to begin adding instruments to your track. You can use the default synthesizers of your DAW (especially if you're using Reason 4.0), or alternatively, you can use your own samples. Simply get creative!

After your first composition, you may feel like you need to sharpen your skills. There are several effective ways to go about doing this. First, with a little practice, you may like to start emulating some music you have already heard. This will teach you how to take the sounds in your head, and put them into your DAW.

Another way to improve fast, is to interact with other beat makers – especially online. Uploading your creations and getting some real feedback from other people can be a very constructive experience. You can also scour YouTube for detailed tutorials on how to add certain effects, to really spice up the beats you're creating.

To summarize, this article has given you a general overview of how to make your own free beats instrumentals. In particular, we looked at what software you will need, the basics of track composition, and how you can make progress with your skills. Now that you have finished reading, you should be ready to get started!
