    "There are many mixing apps from free to paid from average to good. This app is both good and free and was a joy and pleasure to use. I really found it exhilarating to use but took some time to figure out how to use. Overall highly recommended from me."

    "So I don't have a job and I wana be a rapper when I grow up but I needed to find some beats and I'm too poor to actually buy beats. I found FL Studio Mobile and its great, I love it, I know have 5$ in my pocket after six months of selling mix cds."


Did you know that beat making or hip hop started when a group of young people looked for other ways to make music because they cannot afford to buy musical instruments? This is according to a blog written by cpapadopoulos1 about the history of The Art of Beatmaking. The blog also claims that it was in 1970s when the turntable became the new instrument for creating scratches, loops, breaks, and beats. In the age of digital technology, there are several tools which one can use for beat making. Back then, one needs to have an instrument to create music and make beats. With the rise of the digital era, most people rely on smartphones to get things done such as booking a flight, conducting interviews, and more. For instance, smartphones can create beats for music with the use of smartphone applications. Aspiring artists and musicians can make use of these tools to create music, either to express themselves, to make a living, or simply for fun. One of the applications which one can use is the Music Maker Jam. This application allows users create beats, remix, and share their awesome beats with other people through this platform. DJ Studio 5 is another turntable-like application that allows users to mix, remix, pitch music and more.
