OK, I personally use software that can be used online and offline but having the option to be able to make beats anywhere that there is an internet connection is a huge bonus. There is nothing worse than having a new beat stuck in your head then getting all the way home and forgetting it.
Another good thing is if you’re at a party or a friends house you can simply log in to the website where the online beat maker is and start making beats. There has been lots of occasions where I have been to a party and we all had a go at making beats which turned out to be a very fun night.

Instead, choose a beat maker that fits in your budget. The applications mentioned above are all under $30 and have everything you would need to get started.
Once you learn the fundamentals and if you need you can then move on to more advanced programs or even give hardware a try like midi’s.
