It’s easier than ever to find beats online for free or for a small amount. It’s also easier than ever to take online courses in producing, have access to advanced software, and make beats all on your own. However, is it really worth learning how to produce your own beats? Here’s what you need to know about the production process and the investment you could make in producing your own beats.
How Much Creative Control Do You Want?
Anyone who produces their own beats is able to have 100% creative control over the finished product. If you work with someone else, you will always be subject to their individual or collective skill level, creativity, and schedule. If you are only working with yourself, the only limit that you have is your own skill level, creativity, and schedule. If you want 100% creative control, the only way to get it is by producing your own beats.
How Much Time Do You Have to Invest?
Learning to produce your own beats means investing a good deal of time and energy into the actual learning process. You will need to learn a wide variety of things, including how to mix highs, mids, and lows. You will also need to have an aptitude for panning, side-chaining bass drums to bass lines, and things that are even more complicated than those. If you don’t have the time to invest in the learning process, it’s better for you to let someone else produce your own beats.
Do You Want to Amp Up Your Production Skills?
Today’s most famous rappers aren’t just known for their individual artistic skills, they are also known for being able to produce. Before Kanye West gained massive popularity as a rapper, he was a producer. If you want to be a well-rounded rapper, one of the best places to start is with producing your own beats. You will get skills that can help you on each side of the microphone and become a more skilled artist as a result. Producing your own beats can also help if you need to diversify what you do to pay the bills.
