BTV SOLO or “Beat Thang Virtual Solo” represents the latest music production software that anyone, especially beginners and aspiring producers, can easily use to create professional sound using just the computer keyboard. This alone enables a person to arrange full songs and make dance, hip hop, house, jungle, pop, rap, reggae, R&B, rock, and electronic beats with the PC or Mac.
Its strong point is its user-friendly interface designed with simple navigation that includes keyboard shortcuts, pads, and triggers. It is easy to get familiar with the controls and layout as well as to adjust the expertise level so one can get started right away in making beats, arranging melodies, and building custom kits quickly.
A person can appreciate all the features packed into BTV SOLO as he can swiftly scroll through eight octaves of keys and 16 stereo channels, trigger rolls, and insert duplicate bars, among many other capabilities that enable anyone to make quality music from scratch even without much experience.
- Piano. Probably the most versatile instrument for a producer, being able to noodle on the piano is huge. Whether you're just trying to work out a concept or want a particular phrase recorded, a piano is almost indispensable.
- Guitar. Learning the guitar will help you easily flesh out chords and immediately become relevant to one huge genre of music: rock (and its various cousins, children, and grandchildren).
- Bass. Very underrated but still essential. Being able to play the bass will help you lead the rhythm section as well as work out very basic musical ideas.
