    Anyone Creating And Selling Hip Hop Beats and other Genre Online ???

    Can anyone suggest any beat making software I can get started with. I
    would prefer stuff that I can stay with as I progress rather than have to
    upgrade as I progress.

    If you are into creating and selling beats I'd love to hear of your hints and
    tips, plus any recommendations.

    Fl studio, ableton & reason are the best softwares to start with. You will definitely grow if you put in the time.

    I make beats but I don't sell them . I am trying to focus on IM before looking into other ventures. I use Ableton if that's any help.

    I have used FL Studio for over 10 years. I started on the 1st version. To me it is the best software out there. You can use VSTI's in it,, so basically i have tons of virtual keyboards at my fingertips. also,, the pattern mode is perfict for the beat arrangement.

    see my beats at
    jsoundsonline


    all of that is made with FL Studio

    So you want to start making beats and you came to the Internet marketing forum to ask for advice? Bad logic. Bad ethics as well.

    Started with logic, then swtiched to reason to finally end up on Logic Pro. The last one is the best if you want to get some professional sounding quality, and not just in Hiphop rap.
    It's a tough game, done that for 9 years, ranked #1 on google for 2 month for "beats for sale", ended up making around $800 per month and I was producing all day long.
    Stopped producing and ended up making $400 a month turnkey.
    Problem is, 5 years ago you could be someone original, today, there's probably 1million if not more producer in that genre. You have to be in the top 0,1% to make money, to 0,01% to live from it
    It's a passion, not a making money method.

    I would recommend FL studio for beginners. Real easy. U can't beat its ability to accept pludins VST n VSTI and its very user friendly interface. Tho ur beats would sound lame at first, soon as u get it mastered u gonna be able to make professional sounding beats

    I've been making beats for 14 years using FL Studio. http://probangers.com. Oddly enough, it is beat making that originally got me in to IM. I used to rank #1 for 1 to 2 years for "free beats" and tons of other keywords... was making $1,500 + per month from just that website. Ever since Penguin 2.0, the website has been fucked, despite the fact that I really do have the best site for free, royalty-free beats.
