I love technology. Can't wait AI to enslave us!

There are many programs and services that make life easier for the musician. Some of them are designed for music industry newbies. But there are also more serious virtual music studios that are used by professional songwriters and producers.

Rap fans nowadays do not need to have special equipment to write their own tracks. All you need for this is a program for creating beats.
In this article, we will look at software for minus drum parts.

1. NanoStudio

Free program for creating beats, as well as synthesizer and guitar parts. Simple and clear interface in the form of keys will allow for a short time to write a quality song. For beginners, the application has a built-in help system with detailed instructions for use, similar to the one that the essay writer service has.

The main advantages of Music Studio are:

  • Saving your recording to any other device via Wi-Fi;
  • Extensive library of ready-made presets;
  • Support for connecting musical instruments;
  • Compatibility with all current operating systems.

For demanding users, there is a large number of various filters and effects. There is support for almost all sound cards and external equipment. NanoStudio is not demanding to resources of the system. It does not load the CPU, so it is suitable for weak computers. You can download the program to create a bit for free on the official website.

2. Virtual DJ Free Home Edition

Another bit creation program distributed on a free basis. Despite its reduced functionality, it is a great tool for aspiring club music and rap writers. It does not allow you to make tracks from scratch, but you can create mixes of other compositions, giving them an original author's sound.

The main advantages of the application are:

  • Simultaneous editing of several tracks at once;
  • Functional interface with standard controls;
  • Dynamic beat display;
  • Virtual effects and filters, including Scratch.

The program has built-in network synchronization and three EQs. To diversify your design, you can use one of 20 skins. It is suitable not only for beginners, but also for professional musicians.

3. MadTracker

A full-featured audio editor that allows you to create high-quality musical compositions. You can process them using a huge variety of filters and effects. The application is equipped with tools, including a drum machine that sets the rhythm. Its functionality can be expanded with VTS plug-ins, ASIO and ReWire.

For the newcomer to quickly figure out how to use MadTracker, you can use dozens of high quality audio samples. Thanks to the mixing console you have quick access to all functions and can create a track in a short time.

The program is not demanding on system resources. Thanks to the ASIO standard support, the program gets the maximum performance from the graphics adapter, while not loading the computer's processor.

4. FL Studio

There are more professional beat creation programs, but they are usually paid programs with a trial period of use. These include the fairly well-known FL Studio, which allows you to create electronic music as well:

  • Create and record music compositions;
  • Record sound from external sources and microphone;
  • Make mastering and mixes;
  • Export the project to WAV and MP3 formats;
  • Trim and merge audio files.

The library has a large number of built-in tools to fully edit audio files. Changing the time settings of a track is possible thanks to the automation system. With the program you can record and play MIDI, as well as apply filters and effects to your compositions. Many processing tools are also built in for mastering: compression, equalizer, delay, reverb. One of the features is support for plugins and samples from third-party developers.

5. eJay Hip-Hop

The eJay series presents several versions of music software that are adapted to different styles. One of the editions is designed specifically for hip-hop writing. But it doesn't allow you to create tracks from scratch. You are given an extensive library of professional loops, which you can alternate and add various effects to them.

In a special window with a sound wave, you have the possibility to edit the composition. The interface of the program resembles a real DJ console. In addition, the application has a mixer with 48 tracks. Booster and Audio Mixer are used for further processing of the mix. You can import samples in MP3 format and export in WAV. On the official site you can download samples from the online archive. Drag and Drops support is implemented.
