Drag and drop
Sketch out patterns to get a fresh perspective on your beats, then drag and drop individual drum lanes or entire sequences into your DAW. From there, you can always keep refining or experimenting with your creations in your arrangement—without missing a beat or losing an idea.
Tweak. Tune. Refine.
You’re one click away from the most useful parameters: volume, pitch, distortion, mix, reverb and delay. For a deeper, tweakier dive, open the per-lane ALL FX parameter settings, and adjust sample start/end points, the multi-mode filter, and play with envelope, EQ, flanger and distortion controls—all within the visual interface.
Build common kick and snare patterns, percussion sequences and FX loops using preset sequences available on every sequencer lane. With one click, Beatmaker autofills a four-to-the-floor kick or triplet hi-hat pattern, to get your drums hitting as quickly as possible.
Beatmaker’s user experience is dialled in. It’s set up to keep you focused on the music. You can immediately find sounds, build patterns and get ideas out fast—there’s time to obsess over your mix later.
