The trick to create the best rap beats is by learning from others but carving your own niche. These days, there is flood of new music in the market but more often than not – they are quite predictable and often somewhat copied from the ‘inspiration’ taken! The best thing would be to be inspired but inspired to create your own foot-tapping beat. Technology has made life easier for us and easier still for rappers who are trying to take this up as a career! Using technology you can make the coolest rap beats; specific softwares are available for the same.
Here’s how you can do it
The best thing about rap beats is that you need not stick to particular genre of music. The beat can be any sound – the only thing to do it is to ‘identify’ those sounds and edit them like in a track and play and re-play and with nips and tucks in place, voila! Your new rap is ready to hit the streets! The editing, track adding and sound mixing have become a child’s play thanks to the new rap editing software available in the market!
The secret to creating the best beats is to be observant. Do not hear but listen – is an often heard phrase. This is the real meaning of the phrase. The best rappers in the world draw inspiration from the sounds that they ‘listen’ to and ‘create’ something that is totally new to our ears. But only if you did break the parts, you would realize that these are sounds which have been heard previously or even now! The trick is to be innovative and apply your thought and be creative.
Practice Makes a Man Perfect
Rappers need to be fairly consistent to avoid the tag of being a ‘stereotype’ in the industry. This calls for regular practice. This is even more required today because; you’re using a particular technology to make your own rap beats. Such technology is being continuously upgraded and tweaked; you too have to tweak your software often and make sure that the rap beat you’ve created is really an effortful exercise. The more you practice, the better results can be expected from the software. Not to mention the online updates that you will find from rap communities and software sites.
Next important thing is to test and evaluate. If you interviewed any super rapper, you’d probably get the answer that to make a rap beat hit and burn the charts, you need to be constantly upgrading your skill set and evaluate and re-evaluate your creation. This minimizes errors and is essential in ‘fine tuning’. It goes without saying that you need to be extra attentive, dedicated and have patience to achieve the kind of response that you might be waiting for! Celebrity Rappers are great sound mixers – they know and can feel the pulse of the public. They know precisely the mentality of the target audience and hence create the rap beats in a same manner that would please their listeners!
Technology and software have made life easy and competitive for rappers to be!
