Professional Beat Production
Last Updated: January 7, 2013
Using high-quality beat production software makes your music sound professionally produced.

But until recently good beat production software was also pretty expensive – professional level software can cost well over $1,000. Even lower-end products can cost as much as $500.

Luckily, the internet has given us a wide variety of beat production software, which gives you everything you need to produce professional-quality beats – using only your computer.

We decided to review these software programs – our key criteria were a wide variety of sounds, ease of use, and production training.

Overall, we were surprised with the results – these programs can produce beats that could once only be done in the studio, and if you choose the right software you could be making and selling your beats in just a few minutes.

We reviewed 5 music production software products - only 3 met our criteria:

  • Variety - hundreds or thousands of sounds and instruments so you can create unique beats
  • Easy to Use - quick to get started even if you know nothing about producing beats
  • Education - useful training on how to improve your production skills
Our Choice  DUBturbo

Rating 10/10

Ease of Use

"The best Beat Production Software for 2012...""

DUB Turbo works for all levels of producers - beginners all the way to experts.

This software is very easy to use - even someone who knows nothing about music production can be up and running in just a few minutes.

But don’t let the easy to use interface fool you- this software packs some serious power. Even the most advanced producers will find plenty of tools to make unique, hot beats.

And once you’ve made your beat it can be easily turned into an mp3 file with the click of a button, so you can send it via e-mail, or upload it to your website, MySpace page, or iTunes.

Another great thing about this software are the video tutorials which teach you everything you need to know to take you from beginning producer to the next Dr. Dre or Timbaland. This includes training for keyboards, software instruments, and much more.

DUBturbo gives you all the tools and training of more expensive production software, at a fraction of the cost. Excellent beats for less than $30.

The Verdict: High quality beats; cheap price; 60-day money-back guarantee; great for all levels; the best beat software we have seen - our top pick

Highly Recommended

2. Sonic Producer

Our second pick is geared more towards beginners. As with our top pick we were impressed by how easy this software is to use.

This software also comes with some cool bonuses like training on how to create different types of beats.

However, while this software is useful for beginners, most producers will quickly outgrow this package.

Sonic Producer just does not have as wide a variety of sounds and instruments as Text Your Ex back, which limits the types of beats you can produce. And while the training material will be helpful to beginners, it doesn’t give you as comprehensive a program as our top choice.

In summary, this software is good for beginners, but most will quickly outgrow the options and training available.

3. Beats 365

Beats 365 is our third and final choice. While this product comes with thousands of already completed beats, it also includes software to create your own beats.

In addition to the software and pre-made beats, Beats 365 comes with access to a private members forum. But the big benefit of this product is the pre-made beats. If you simply want beats you can download and use then this is definitely the product to go for.

But if you are looking for high-quality production tools you won’t find it in this package. The variety of sounds and instruments is poor, and the software is difficult to use.

If you are serious about producing your own high-quality beats you will want one of our top 2 choices. But if you are just looking for access to pre-made beats then Beats 365 has exactly what you need.
