Make Your Own Beats – Software Programs and Tools

As a beat maker there are other tools you should consider to take you into that next level once you’ve chosen your sequencer (or Digital Audio Workstation). First, before I get any further, I would like to remind you that you’ll always hear others claim that a certain tool is better than the other. Like I mentioned earlier, it’s kind of like the Mac vs. PC discussion: it’s never ending! The same holds true for beats, whether it’s MPC vs. MV3000, Reason vs. FL Studio, or Cubase vs. Logic. There is no better; only best for you. Try not to get caught up into all of that, because in the end it all comes down to your ability as an artist to use your creativity to create something, while effectively utilizing the tools you have at your disposal. A good producer should be able to become a master of his or her own tools.

A good way determine whether you’ll need to expand your production arsenal is by looking at what you already have and the style of music you intend on creating then figuring out what’s limiting you. This is the best way of gauging whether you should buy new gear because software and hardware is not cheap and investing in either or both of these things can mean a couple hundred or thousand of dollars spent. This free guide is about making beats on a tight-pocketed budget, so I’ll detail what I did and strictly outline some costs incurred as a result. When I did this evaluation myself early on, I realized that the most limiting factor was the variety of sounds I had which clued me into what I needed at the time, which was more sounds to work with.


In addition to containing nearly all the tools you’ll need to begin making beats, FL Studio also comes with some stock sounds to get your production game started. Bundled with FL Studio is some drum kits, bass tones, and several other sounds such as strings, synths, percussion, etc. While these sounds may help get you started, sooner you’ll find that they get used and re-used fast and you’ll need to load up on some newer sounds to stay creative.

Sampled Sounds:

Obtaining newer sounds can be done in several ways. A common technique is by sampling old records and has been popularized by producers such as Kanye West, Pete Rock, and the RZA. There are several techniques used when sampling music. While some people loop grooves and breaks, others choose to segment or “chop” components of the original loop to create something completely different than the original. A master of this technique is DJ Premier. By studying the sound of DJ Premier you’ll see that he barely just loops his samples and rather chops them up to the point where the original is barely recognizable. Key to sampling is having a good ear for what to sample. This is why record hunting or “crate digging” is …

The Use of SEO in Improving Your Website Ranking – Profit Lance Tips and Tricks

Search engine optimization is a technique used to increase the traffic of a certain website. The most viewed sites are those that are in the first page of the search engine. But how are you going to place everyone on the first page? It is a given fact that everyone wants their website to be viewed. Why else would they make it if not to let people view, right?

What you need is an optimized content. This is needed so that your site will contain significant information to a visitor. When we say optimized content, we refer to the articles, news, blogs, posts, and other information that is placed in a website in order to attract visitors. This optimized content will help a lot in your ranking.

Remember also that you must not sacrifice the quality of the contents that you are offering. It is better to have not so many articles which contain quality information, rather than have so many articles and yet quality is sacrificed. In short, in order for you to improve your web ranking, you must focus on the content of your website. Establish guidelines that you will use when you post per page. For example, set a standard as to how many images and words you are going to use in a page. You can attract visitors to your site by utilizing the keyword tools that are typically available on many search engines. By doing this, not only do you optimize your website content, but you also have quality content which visitors will find relevant.

Stick to what your topic is. If you are talking about making money online, then do not talk about anything else. If you introduce another topic, the visitors will turn away. But if you stick with your topic from start until end, the visitors will be happy to read what you have to say.

The topic that you have must be informative to the audience that you are targeting. No matter how long your pages are if they do not contain quality information, then it is useless. Content is very important as it can tell the people what industry you are in, what product types you are promoting, and the likes. If the website that you have will answer most of the people's questions, then you are on the right track.

Make people go to your website because they are curious of what you have to offer instead of putting up ads that are deceiving. This and many more tips are taught in an online course called Profit Lance. …
