As you can see there are many different types of beat making apps that you can download. Some are free and others are premium apps which you may have to pay for.

When deciding which beat making app you would like to purchase or download, always make sure it has the correct features, sounds and functionality for the style of music that you want to create.

Doing so will make sure you do not download an app that does not have the features you need to make your style of music.

Once you have a good beat making app it is pretty easy to make your own beats and with thousands of video tutorials on places like YouTube or Metacafe you are sure to start making your own hits very fast!

Making beats on your iPad, tablet or smart phone is very fun and you can easily spend hours playing around with the app making all kinds of different beats.

Personally I would rather use beat making software that you can install on your computer because most beat making software will have a tonne of features sounds, Sample’s and functionality that beat making apps do not have.
