Dr Drum beat making software full tutorial
I’ve used different programs over the years to make my own music, with some success, but the first piece of software to really excite me has been Dr. Drum. It’s a new program which is aimed at novice users, but it doesn’t sacrifice quality or feature-richness to make itself accessible.
How is that even possible? Well, the problem with most software is that the people who design it are the people who write the code. These guys are super smart and everything, but they don’t necessarily have the strongest design sense about them.
Dr. Drum is different. It has a sleek, streamlined, and sexy interface, which really inspires creativity. It just feels cool to work with.
Dr. Drum is beat mixing software which provides you the easiest way to create professional grade tracks at a fraction of the cost. It has amazing features that let you create tracks from all genres of music, whether it is trance/techno/house/dub step or hip hop/pop/R&B or rock music.
Want to produce entire soundtracks without buying expensive keyboards or strings? Get it all right at your fingertips. Dr. Drum comes with a four scale keyboard to give you the powerful sound you hear in your head without spending thousands on equipment or even years of your time practicing. With Dr. Drum you get:
– Complete video tutorials
– Import ability to add your own creations to the tracks
– 4 Octave keyboard to create real music right on your computer
– Export to high-quality 44.1 Sterio .wav file
– Alter sound levels on each track individually
– Alter “pan effect” on each track
– Alter frequency and Ifo to make step beats and other awesome effects
– Works on both PC and Mac machines
– Multiple editing screens
– A free “Sell your beats” report included
Overall, Dr. Drum has everything you could need to create beats, and is cheaper than its competitors. Such a high level of control over your sound is hard to reconcile with ease of use, but the program has managed to achieve just that.
One of the more recent music production software for PC’s to hit the beat making scene is the BTV SOLO by 2 x Grammy Award winning music producer Dallas Austin, who has worked with many huge name artists including Michael Jackson, Chris Brown, Will.I.Am, Lady Gaga and Madonna.
