Beat Making Online Free Tutorial
First of all you need a computer and a D.A.W. (Digital Audio Workstation). The workstation will form the basis of your production studio or home music lab. While most producers find it easy to use midi controllers such as a keyboards or touch buttons, but you can also do without these equipment. One of the best examples of a good workstation where you can do without midi controllers, is the digital beat and music workstation FruityLoops. FruityLoops is a product from the brand Image Line, and it is a wonderful D.A.W. for beginners but also does a terrific job for the more advanced producers among us. We advise you to check it out by downloading a trial version from the internet or webpage.

Make a beat using fruityloops
Using fruity loops can be an easy way to make a beat. This D.A.W. has an easy learning curve, and when I was a teenager this was the first workstation I used to make beats. It has it’s own build in effects and virtual instruments (VST). One of the best Image Line vst’s would be the 3X-OSC, this is a basic synthengine which enables you to sculpt sound out of basic wave forms and combine them. Use this VST in combination with some effects and you can create big and famous sounds.
