Q&A: I want to make hiphop beats. Please recommend some Home studio equipments.?

Question by dalowhanger: I want to make hiphop beats. Please recommend some Home studio equipments.?
Hi, I am a high school student, and I’ve been interested in the whole Dj stuff, I’m only playing with my decks currently, but I would like to actually make beats with my computer.
i think it would be the best to have Protools, but I don’t really know what other equipment that is needed. I’ve got a computer G5, it would be very helpful if you guys help me out! Thank you.

Best answer:

Answer by Jim B

    Pro Tools is a sequencer/editor made by Digidesign that is used (not exclusively) in every major studio.

    Similar software to look into: Cubase, Logic Pro, Digital Performer, Ableton Live, Sonar, and Nuendo. They all do basically the same thing…differences are based on preferences between the interfaces and the hardware you use.

    “I want to make hiphop beats. Please recommend some Home studio equipments.”

    DJing is an expensive hobby, throw in production equipment & DJing becomes a very expensive hobby.

    Basic equipment for a computer based DJ home studio. (I don’t use a computer for DJing, so I don’t know much about the computer side of the equation.)

    In addition to sequencer/editor software, you’ll probably want:

    – Groove Box (Commonly called a drum machine.) MPC dominates the Groove Box market, probably every professional DJ has used a MPC at one time or another.

    – Keyboard

    – DJ mixer

    – CD turntables or vinyl turntables or both.

    Sounds like you already have the turntables & DJ mixer so I’ll skip those.
