How To Make Beats Without Any Musical Knowledge


The internet is a strange and wonderful place that is constantly changing at a rate far faster than any of us could ever hope to achieve. In one moment there is a post going up about political corruption in the highest ranks of government, while in the next split-second someone is sharing a compilation of 7-second cat vines that runs over 15-minutes in length. In between those events, millions of bits of data are exchanged all over the world, and countless more content ideas are born.

Recently, one forward-thinking internet entrepreneur decided he wanted to simplify the world of hip-hop. While it seems safe to say anyone could learn to rap given enough time and resources, the same cannot be said for learning to produce beats. That is, until now.

TypeDrummer is a nice site that allows users to create beats without having any prior musical knowledge or training experience. By using just a keyboard, visitors are able to create unique and even revolutionary musical productions, all from the comfort wherever they happen to be while sitting online. It’s as if the bar for entry into music production has been dropped so low even a cat walking across your keyboard could stumble across the next hit song, and though you cannot download your creations just yet the fun you will have making and sharing them is unlike anything you will find in other corners of the net.

What are you waiting for? Click here and begin creating your own beats!
