I get asked all the time "What do I need to start making beats?". So in this video I show you step-by-step what you'll need to start making beats. All for UNDER $300! I call it the beat making essentials. Now there are several different equipment configurations as far as how to make beats, but these are my recommendations for those who want to start making music, but don't have a lot of money to start with. I briefly explain the different beat making programs, the five main things to start off with, I suggest some affordable options, and offer advice on purchasing a good set of entry level studio monitors.
