Over the last few years, inexpensive technology has lowered the barrier to those who want to create beats and instrumentals for music. While this lower barrier to entry allows more and more people who want to make beats do so, it also can create a challenge for serious music artists looking for quality beats.
At the same time, the amount of new beat makers gives artists the opportunity to find cheap beats that they do not have to spend a ton of money for. This can be good because most new up and coming singers and rappers do not have a significant amount of money to invest in rap beats, hip hop beats, or r & b instrumentals.
If you are an artist, then there should be a balance when looking for affordability and quality in your music instrumentals. You do not want to just go and pick up any cheap beats that you find.
Just because you find cheap beats does not mean that they will do your talent justice. When dealing with new artists, I teach them the importance of being willing to invest in your talent, but at the same time I can understand when new artists are putting in tons of effort and simply do not have the funds to pay full prices.
So again, there must be a balance. You should focus on quality first, price last. A lot of times, new beat makers think that the best way to get people to buy their beats is to make them super cheap. The thing is, serious producers have invested thousands upon thousands of dollars in equipment and lots of time to perfect their beat making craft.
After reaching a definite point and building a number of clients, some of us reach a point where we can afford to offer cheap beats for a limited time time to artists who want to try their hand at singing or rapping. These are the types of beats that you should look for if you are looking for inexpensive instrumentals.
This is one component of the balancing act in searching for cheap beats that are professional quality.
