Overview

Guru Beat Sequencer Software is your beatbox dream come true, an inspirational all-in-one rhythm workstation. Based on an enlightened approach to drum loop creation, Guru makes building that perfect beat faster and easier than ever.

Guru's architecture is perfect for anything from straight-up breaks and stomping floor-fillers to complex polyrhythmic, multi-layered grooves. The powerful effects and graphical parameter automation allow you to mutate your beats into new, unheard forms, or create subtle variations. Mash up your sounds with pitch modulation, repeat triggers, start-point and timing manipulation, resonant filters, and much more.

Everything from precision funk to disturbing sonic mangling and glitch beatscapes is at your fingertips. Breathe new life into your loops with Guru's unique intelligent loop slicer that categorizes slices as kick, snare, hi-hat, or percussion hits, letting you use any audio material effortlessly and in the context of your pattern. Or extract individual hits and the timing feel from loops to create new grooves.

The extensive editing and processing tools then allow you to tweak samples and slice points, or layer more sounds. Guru gives you back the hands-on feel which you crave. Record performances with the mouse or a MIDI controller, fire off sequences with a MIDI key, layer multiple engines, drop parts in and out, and switch grooves on the fly.
