“As soon as I get FL studio, buy some vst synths, a midi controller, and that waves plugin pack, Imma make some hot shit!”
DON’T BE LAME…
Sometimes you gotta get the ball rolling with whatever you can use effectively to get started, feel me? Don’t obsess with the gear you can’t afford yet.
You can make great music with all free stuff, trust me I have done it as a challenge to my self several times. As a matter of fact all my new beats coming up later this week are all going to be done with free Vst plugins, refills & samples JUST to prove this point. Everything you need to get started you can get ethically and free online. I’m not talking about downloading pirated software by the gig.. that’s lame as hell. You want people to buy your music right?
Well don’t use stolen or steal software either, remember – KARMA IS A B**CH. Many established producers are guilty of using hot products while making tons of money and complaining about beat sales..its really hypocritical.
Be a good sport and either use free software or buy the stuff you want. Dedicate 1-3 hours a day collecting legit FREE samples & plugins if you cant afford to buy stuff and you may end up never buying stuff. Seriously, alot of the free stuff online is actually top notch. Be sure to get anything you download from a trusted source to avoid viruses and malware. The music needs to be good but if you trying to have a business plan the execution of your plan and making moves is 95 percent of the hustle homie…
It’s all about your GRIND, NOT YOUR HUSTLE! #Realtalk
