DUBTurbo Review

Listening to the sick beats coming from the DJ at the club and wishing you could produce music like that? Have the passion and creativity, but lack the thousands of dollars to invest in all the best beat making equipment that the professionals use? Think that you need years of practice before you can actually start making money from your music? DUBTurbo will dispense with all those doubts and quickly put you on the path to track making. DUBTurbo is an easy to use beat making software package that allows you to make your own tracks by typing them into a metronome ticker. It allows you to make your beats in studio grade WAV format and features more than one bar looper for superior sound mixing.

What You Get:

-DUBTurbo Software
-4 Premium Sample Packs
-Movie & Mood royalty free
-DT Instrumentals-royalty free beats
-Training Videos
-Free Updates

All this for $29.95. It sounds almost too good to be true. However, considering what you would have to pay for a Midi or a full DAW it is probably worth taking a gander at. It features a online sequencer, but for better sound and recording quality, downloading the software to your PC or Mac is recommended.

What Others Think

Digging into the electronic music forums, I did find a lot of wannabe beat makers mentioning this new affordable beat making software. The general consensus seems to be that you are essentially getting your money's worth but not much more. The software does seem to work and more than a few people have expressed at least an interest in it. However, it is also very clear that there is also a lot of other software and equipment out there that is far superior than what DUBTurbo has to offer. However, most of this equipment and software is going to cost way more than what this sequencer is being offered for. For what it is, DUBTurbo seems to to be a good deal. It is the most popular product in its category and those that tried it seem to be happy with the results. Some forum members have expressed some dismay that it was not VST or Midi enabled, but according to its makers (who also show up on the forums), it was never meant to compete with the bigger DAW's. Some users also had trouble getting it installed on their machines, however there is an online FAQ available that can help you figure out any problems.

Checking out the software for myself, I found it a bit imposing at first, but got a clearer understanding on how it works after watching the tutorials. I have my doubts whether any of the beats I make will get the attention of Dr. Dre, however I can see how this affordable sequencer could be a great first time tool. While it will not replace the high end stuff out there, it can get those who are creative enough on the right track. Also, DUBTurbo is backed by a Clickbank 60 day money back guarantee, so checking it for yourself comes at no risk.
