One big question that most aspiring or new producers seem to ask about is what kind of gear, equipment and software they will need to begin making beats. A big problem which prevents them from getting started is that they seem to think that the gear they will need to make quality beats is highly expensive. This can cause them to dismiss their desires as a producer and never take the leap to making their first beat.
The truth is that the equipment needed to make beats is likely less expensive than you’d think. This is largely because your success as a producer will have much more to do with your talents and skills than it does with your equipment. While certain high end hardware and software can certainly help make the production process more effective and efficient, it is not NEEDED right away. Instead, it is a great idea to start with some basic equipment, develop your craft, and start upgrading your gear over time.
