I personally feel how we were introduced to making beats influences our purchasing decisions.
For example, are you wanting to produce original compositions, or sampled beats?
The type of gear you need differs between these two beatmaking approaches.
So, it’s important to understand what style of music you’re wanting to create so you make the most use of your money, and at the same time, maximize your enjoyment and creativeness.
Don’t forget about my pro-tip I shared: Bundle Deals!
Bundle deals aren’t always available, but if they are, definitely look at them by including “bundle” at the end of the company name.
Often you can get headphones, a microphone, audio cable, and audio interface in one package, which is a great way to get started until you become better!
