Beat Making Software: Why DUBturbo, ACID and Soundation Change Everything

DUBturbo, ACID and Soundation are complete set ups for making professional rap, techno r&b, hip hop or any other beats. This is easy software that is fast to use and it makes broadcast quality beats like a pro DJ, for real.

Any level artist, producer or DJ can use the software and create hit style music. It really does lower the entry in terms of cost and skills. Plus DUBturbo includes video training. So you just need a great ear and a vision.

If you have played around with basic drum and beat machines you know that most of them sound really bad. That is especially true if the beat maker uses poor sound quality files like Mp3s. You have to always build your beats with wavs like DUBturbo, ACID and Soundation do.

When you have the right software and high end samples you will be surprised to see just how easy it is to create tracks that are radio-ready. Previously the problem here was the cost of the software and samples. However now these beat-making programs solve that problem.

The real bottom line here is the ability to make music that is high enough quality for people to want to pay you for it.
