Let's face it! If you want to make your own beats, building your own studio can cost a lot of money. That's money that many potentially talented would be producers, rappers and other artists just do not have to spend. If you go down the laundry list of absolutely necessary items that are required to set up even the most basic home studio, it can be daunting and expensive. You will need things like keyboards and/or midi controllers, microphones, mixers, audio interfaces, cables, etc... oh, and don't forget skill, training and experience.
