Overview

The BPM Beat Production Machine from MOTU unites drum machine-style operation with advanced virtual instrument technology to give you the ultimate rhythm programming experience. The virtual instrument software lets you combine drum kits, sequenced patterns, sliced loops, and instrument sounds to realize your rhythmic vision, 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.

Explore a new universe of sounds
Browse BPM's vast 15GB sample library of expertly recorded and mastered 24-bit/96kHz rhythmic material for urban, R&B, hip hop, techno, electro, house, pop, rock, and other styles of music. Sample your own drum sounds directly into BPM's drum pads, or simply drag-and-drop clips from your computer desktop, to add infinite possibilities to your own, unique sound. Add further punch with BPM's Drum Synthesizer. MOTU's Beat Production Machine also enables you to combine unlimited sample layers per pad with programmable layer switching. Now add guitar, bass, and other multisample instrument sounds from BPM's included sample collection, MachFive, or any other MOTU or UVI sample instrument library.

Let your beats flow, from start to finish
Trigger scenes during live performance from pads or MIDI notes. Drag-and-drop scenes into a song to build an entire track in seconds. Finalize your track with MOTU BPM's comprehensive graphic mixer, unlimited effects processing, and dozens of world-class effects, including multi-band EQ, filter, delay, drive, distortion, and convolution reverb. Advanced features of this virtual instrument software include drag-and-drop audio import/export, multiple outputs, universal plug-in compatibility, and standalone operation.

Sound libraries these days are awash with loops. And what is a loop, exactly? Someone else's beat. Isn't it time to take back creative ownership over your grooves? Isn't it time to once again release your own unique, inspired beats on the world? If only you had a rhythm production instrument that let you program beats as fast as your mind can hear them. Now you can with the MOTU BPM Beat Production Machine.

Awesome beatmaking software!!!

By Greg

from California

Comments about MOTU BPM Beat Production Machine Virtual Instrument:

BPM has tons of sounds and beats to get you going. Creativity will be second nature with this software. Easy to use interface and workflow is a breeze. Drop samples and manipulation/tweaking of samples is a plus. This will keep any producer busy for a long time!!

Platform impressive, "urban" translates to "analogue sounds"

By Ed Farris

from Jacksonville

Comments about MOTU BPM Beat Production Machine Virtual Instrument:

Motu as a company impresses me with their staff. Whereas other major league companies have impressive specs., Motu is there to help you get things to work. On initial review, the library seems to be almost entirely "urban" as advertised. I was hoping for a vast library of high quality drum samples. So far the library seems to contain a somewhat repetitious reiteration of the same samples in different, yet similar loop patterns. My review is written after only perhaps 2 hours of sampling all of the components within this program. If I find the samples that would sound like a traditional rock band, or Jazz trio, i.e. non analogue sound, then I would give this program 5 stars.

It's a big deal.

By Jackson Riffe

from NY NY

Comments about MOTU BPM Beat Production Machine Virtual Instrument:

I'm not Johnny Drum Machine....But I am good with machines and programs. The install instructions could be a little easier....they do have some cool videos to watch that are good tutorials. I have been learning to tweak this and the AKAI MPD 32 at the same time so there's tons of parameters to set to where I feel more comfortable. but they are both amazing and I'm already on the road to being where I want in a few days. I'm happy I bought the new kid on the block, it's got 19 gigs of samples.
