Making Beats: Skill Pack explains the careful process of beat making, what tools makes a beat stand out, and how to use the software to develop beats and loops that will make the listener nod their head. Make infectious modern beats using popular software such as Native Instruments Battery, Apple Logic Pro, Steinberg Cubase, Propellerheads ReCycle, Audacity, and other programs. Explore samplings and professional beat making using little or no hardware.

This book teaches users how to make better beats in minutes by improving their organization and efficiency, and which software products are the best to use for specific beat-making processes. The author explains how to make professional sounding beats using relatively inexpensive software and simple audio plug-ins, and teaches musicians how to make beats on the move using portable equipment.
