Top Producer Equipment For Making Beats

When it comes to making beats, your options are unlimited – sky is the limit. Because of this you are probably wondering what producer equipment do I need to make beats. In this article we will go over the top equipment you need to make fire beats.

Computer – Laptop or Desktop

The first thing on this list is a computer. You will chose between a laptop or desktop (check out our Laptop or Desktop guide here).

This is essential because the only way you are going to make great beats is with a great computer. Having a great and powerful computer will allow you to push the limits of your creativity with out worrying about your computer’s limitations.

I can tell you first hand that having a computer that sucks really hinders your creativity and expression when it comes to making beats. The reason for this is because you will want to try out a bunch of cool things and ideas. However, if your computer sucks, your computer will start to chug and go slow very early. Nothing is worse than you having to deal with pops, clicks and slow downs because your computer can’t handle all that fire you are producing.

Make sure you get a nice computer. We added some below for you to check out.

DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)

2nd on this list is a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). This right here is the 2nd most important item on the list because without a DAW you will not be able to make beats! There are so many DAWs to choose from but the best one for making beats that I recommend are FL Studio, Abelton, Logic Pro X and Maschine.

My personal favorite is FL Studio.

The reason why I love FL Studio is because of how versatile it is. You can literally do anything on it and it’s very easy for me to get my ideas out quickly. The way FL studio is designed even allows you to route things in complicated manners that i’m even surprised it can do.

Although FL studio is my favorite, definitely try out some of the programs listed above and see which one works best for you!

Midi Keyboard

Although there are some producers that do not use a midi keyboard, I still recommend that you pick one up anyway. Why? Because having a midi keyboard allows you to get your ideas down quickly.

Ages ago I tried to make beats without a midi keyboard. Although I was successful, it took me a LONG time to get ideas down. Eventually you will get tired of all the mouse clicks and using your computer keyboard as a replacement of your midi keyboard (God.. this was horrible times for me.)

Having a midi keyboard is an expressive and quick way to get your ideas down and there are so many options to choose from. Here are some our recommendations!

Audio Interface

The next item on our list is the Audio interface. An audio interface is needed because it allows you to record sounds easily in to your computer and play them out into studio monitors (we will discuss this later).

If you plan on sampling sounds into your productions, its with out a doubt that an audio interface will help you do the job easily.

Studio Monitors

Yes I know that you can make beats in your headphones but 9 times out of 10 you want to FEEL your beats. This is where the studio monitors shine!

Producers always make sure to get some nice studio monitors in their set up so that they can really hear the music that they are making. This allows them to not only enjoy the music they are making but make more informed decisions on what needs to be added or taken away from the track that they are working on.
