Do You Want To Make Awesome Sounding Beats?

 

Dub Turbo Is The Answer!

 

You can make pretty much any electronic music that you want with Dub Turbo and the good thing is you don't need any musical production knowledge to be able to use it!

What you will normally find online when you are looking to make music is that a lot of the websites on forums will tell you that if you want to make good sounding beats you need to have lots of music production knowledge, and expensive equipment such as a recording studio!

Well that is where Dub Turbo solves your problems as it has a fairly featured beat maker, keyboard and thousands of sounds that you can pick from to make any style of music that you like.

You even get a video tutorial that will show you how to use it and get up and running in just 20 minutes!

Even if you have some knowledge with music production and have gone to the lengths of having got yourself a recording studio, you can actually use Dub Turbo as an extension to the variety of sounds that you can produce.

Most of all though, Dub Turbo is perfect for beginners and people that are wanting to create the same quality sounds as they hear in their favourite tunes.

Check out the preview below and see how easy is to make your own beats from home using this awesome software:

Riff Master Pro


Music Slow Down Software

One of the best ways to learn to play any instrument is by developing pitch recognition early on. In learning to play by ear and by finding your own fingerings without the aid of guitar tabs, you are also developing an intuative knowledge of the fretboard. Many free guitar tabs on the internet are incorrect anyway.

 

What is the best way to learn to play like Joe Satriani? By playing along with him of course. If only you could slow him down to the point where you can actually figure out which notes he is playing and be able to keep up with him when you play along. Well now you can.

 

With Riff Master Pro, you can slow down any of your music files or rip from a CD, slow the song down as much as you like and it stays in the correct pitch.

 

The very easy to use, Riff Master Pro is the perfect tool for anyone who wants to learn from their favourite players. How did I survive without it for so many years?

 

The new version 4 has the facility to multi loop and save the multi loops, Rip tracks from CD and save to RMP folder, plus remove vocals to better hear the backing, solos etc.
