Hey guys, as you can tell I'm pretty much knew to this website, and a little newcomer to the music business. But I have a couple of friends who are seriously into and planning on a future music career in hip hop. Right now I've done all my work with audacity but I'm finding it lacking what I need to make my music more serious. I don't know how to make beats yet, so I stick to instrumentals and make released tracks un-official. But yeah, I was wondering how I should start out? I am helping my friends out with this and I need to know a more legit, serious, free program that's easy to use, and better than audacity. Can anyone help me out?
