You can use whatever. It depends on the producer, most use top of the line synth pads and stuff. But you could just as easily use a keyboard or something.
#4
a synth pad..do those also do the melodies as well....does it have keys or is like and electric drum machine
#5
Like an electric drum machine. For the melodies, most producers just use expensive keyboards.
#6
Programs like Steinberg Cubase SX 3, Propellerhead Reason, or Cakewalk Sonar. You'd be recording the beats by playing them on synth pads / MIDI keyboards.
#7
so the programs work along side the synth pad/ midi and u just creat the beats...sounds simple...ill look into it..how much are we talkin money wise...probably expensive as hell rite?
#8
Yeah but, I like using the less expensive ones anyway. It sounds more raw and realistic. Less cheesy and produced.
#9
you know, i also got into free styling too, but i have absolutely no knowledge of how to use programs, make beats, or use synth pad. I have to learn one day...

You're...kidding, right?


The less expensive ones are the ones that sound like cheap MIDIs. The more expensive, top-quality patches and samples sound very realistic. Hell, where do you think all the lower-budget film scores come from nowadays?

well, what is a good free program for beats? If there's such a thing.
There is such a thing if you decide to join the ranks of Blackbeard and Captain Jack Sparrow.
