Rhythm production instrument for Mac and Windows
BPM (Beat Production Machine) Version 1.5 combines familiar drum machine-style operation with the power and flexibility of state-of-the-art virtual instrument technology to give you the ultimate rhythm programming experience. Use the intuitive step sequencer to quickly build and layer drum kits, sequenced patterns, sliced loops and instrument sounds to realize your rhythmic vision with just a few clicks. Choose among hundreds of preset patterns, mixing and matching any playing style with any drum kit. Or plug in your pad controller or MIDI keyboard to capture your live, groove-quantized performance directly in BPM.
Browse BPM’s vast 19 GB library of expertly recorded and mastered 24-bit 96 kHz drum sounds, percussive hits, sliced loops and other rhythmic material spanning decades of urban, hip hop, R&B, electro, techno, house, pop, funk, soul, rock and other music styles. Included is Beatbox Anthology, 10,000 authentic samples from 80 classic iconic drum machines from 70s, 80s, and 90s. Samples, patterns, and loops play as you click for faster browsing. Sample your own drum sounds directly into BPM’s drum pads, or simply drag and drop them into BPM from your computer desktop. Instantly apply “old school” sound with BPM’s exclusive SP1200 Mode. Add further punch with BPM’s Drum Synth. Choose from dozens of included preset sounds, tweak as needed and even layer with drum samples on any pad. Combine unlimited sample layers per pad with programmable velocity, cyclic and random layer switching. Now add guitar, bass and other multi-sampled instrument sounds from BPM’s included library — or any other MOTU or UVI sample instrument library.
Combine kits, patterns and sequences into scenes, then trigger scenes during live performance with pads and/or MIDI notes. Or simply drag and drop scenes into a song to build an entire track in seconds. Run BPM standalone or synced to your host software tempo and timeline.
Finalize your track for prime time with BPM’s comprehensive graphic mixer, which lets you mix all 64 pads, instrument parts and loops side by side, complete with a master mixer for banks, instrument racks and aux channels. Apply unlimited professional quality effects processing independently to pads, loops, instruments, banks, racks, aux outs an master outputs. Effects include EQ, compressor/gate, filter, delay, reverb, phaser, chorus, drive, distortion and CPU-efficient convolution reverb.
Advanced software features include ultra-low latency, efficient disk streaming for fast preset loading, world-renowned UVI Engine for superb sound quality, universal plug-in compatibility and stand-alone operation. Let BPM turn your computer into a rhythm production powerhouse.
