A Good Alternative to

One of the first things I noticed when I arrived at was how clean the beat site looked. It looked very professional and easy to use. It looks very well thought out and seems like a successful business model. I liked how your attention is called to buy beats at the very top of the website. Before I even heard any beats, I read the messages in the banner and I felt like I could be successful if I used these beats.

I listened to some of the beats on and they were music industry quality beats and just like their motto says, all you have to do is “just add vocals”. It was very easy to listen to the beats and instrumentals. They give you about a 60-second sample of each song. They also have different genres like Hip Hop, Pop, and R&B.

The prices are very affordable. There are different prices and they even have free beats. has a massive catalog of beats by many producers. It’s a win-win-win situation for their members because the producers benefit as well as the artist and itself.

I did notice it was hard to find the subscription box for the site. They have a “join us” link in the top right corner which is in red. The benefits of becoming a member are not expressed clearly and you must become a member to buy a beat.

Also when I did go to buy a beat, the process had too many steps. You must definitely want the beat very much if you got through their process. I’m not saying it’s bad. I’m just saying it’s a lot to do. If you wanted to purchase exclusive rights to a beat, it seems like it’s a lengthy process. You can’t just click on a link and buy the beat exclusively like most beat websites. Some other beat selling sites offer combination deals also. I didn’t see this feature on

One big thing that I liked was the ability to download their vocal recording software app to your smartphone if you have one. You can play their beats and add your own vocals right on your phone.

Overall though, the design alone makes me want to come back to It’s really easy on the eyes and anyone can use it. The beats are good and plenty and they make it easy for new rappers and singers to use.

For a good alternative, I recommend Not only do you get industry quality beats but the checkout process is much smoother and you get to work with proven music industry veterans.
