Before you decide to create rap beats, you must have all the possible knowledge about composing the beats. We were able to do a side-by-side test of the virtual instrument catalog in each program by recording a short melody played on three often-used instruments and a simple beat played on an electronic drum machine and acoustic drum plug-in. The advantage with software like Music Maker that include numerous drumloops and basslines is that the music you create can be published legally as long as no commercial aims are being pursued.
