    What equipment do you use and what's the cost?

    MPC 500: $500-600. unless you can find one used like I did for slightly less.

    I won't get into the cost of my other equipment cause it's quite a few items, but........

    Truth is, you should do lots of personal research and shopping around. If you got dough then I suggest getting anything brand new. Also, look for clearance or open items cause you can usually get a working machine that has only been used a couple times w/a store warranty. Midi equipment and software is another route worth looking at as well.

    If you're new to it, just start with a cracked FL Studio and a maybe buy a small keyboard or second hand MPD. That's all I use for my beats.

    Wish I bought this instead. That and FL is a killer combo.



    Don't start spending a lot of money until you know what you really need.

    Reason is dope....I use an MPD 24 & M-Audio Oxygen 25 for my digital set up. Fruity Loops(FL Studio) has been a major part of my growth as a producer since I was 15, so that is also a good recommendation.

    Around €200, it's basically a MPD32 and MPK25 in one. Just a few pads less.

    I started learning piano last week and it really does make sampling easier.

    werd im learning piano too jasp in school . . . it actually has helped as far as being more familiar with the music shit i juss needa stop fuckin around in the class nd take the oppurtunity to learn it. . after two years of that thinking about picking up the drums or guitar in addition to the piano . . music is not all just sounds nd shit sumtimes u juss gotta learn some ish aha . .

    nd as far as making beats id say start with FL or something simple and then after awhile expand . . bcuz no sense in buying a whole bunch of a equipment it DOESNT make you a better producer over time ive started to realize it when i see ppl like justice league using FL studio, obviously they have other equipment but i think you get my point haha.
