MasterBeat 2.1 Drum Machine incorporates a 16-channel Matrix and Step-Sequencer including VST Plug-in Support and many other features for creating the ultimate drum grooves possible.
Our price $22.29 USD
MASTERBEAT 2.1 is a true 32-Bit Stand-alone Application that is easy on your resources and supports MME- and Direct-X-Drivers. Depending on the processor type, you can also process the drum sounds using several VST Plug-ins per beat, which opens up incredible possibilities for Groove-Design, that were previously never available! This product is stand alone and can not be used as a VST plug-in although you can load VST plug-ins into the software for effecting individual hits separately.
Each of the 16 tracks enable you to activate a sound in the 4x4 scheme, very much in the same way as with classic drum machines. Each individual sound can easily be exchanged. Via the Click on the "Library-Folder" you have direct access to about 1000 high class sounds from the clearly arranged " On Board-Library". But you can also import your own sounds in WAV-format (44,1 KHz/16Bit / mono or stereo). Furthermore you have the ability to exchange complete drum kits simply by pushing a button.
Next to the visual display you have access to acoustic control functions like MUTE and SOLO, very much like you do on a mixer. This is really handy for punching in and out. Just one button and you can mute certain parts of the loop.
The tracks can be switched as needed from 16 to 32 steps. The switching option of the tracks to a visual bar graph is extremely helpful! This special option is available to you even 6-fold per track and applies to:
This is how you can program a dynamic snare break within seconds with the mouse button held down, draw a Pan setting, set time sensitive filter movements, and you have total control of the sounds up to self oscillation or input the most detailed nuances "on the fly". All values are transferred "per step" into the pattern. The creative possibilities are endless.
For the comfortable input of pitch, i.e. for tuned drums or also for bass lines, you have an additional switch option to the PITCH EDITOR per track. If one of the drum sounds is not quite in tune, shift it to the note you want!
Besides the previously described options per step you also have access to a respective Global-Parameter-Field per track, again, very much like you do on a mixer. However, this feature exceeds the extent of its normal functions. For each track you can save and use the following parameters separately:
- Pitch (+/- 12 Halftones)
- Distortion (Level- & Threshold Parameter)
- Delay-Unit (Level, Feedback, Pan, Steps)
- Sample Reverse-Function
- Q Resonance
- EQ, Highpass, Lowpass (Switchable)
MASTERBEAT 2.1 also offers you multiple interfaces to link up with your existing equipment. Set it up to control your Sampler or external drum machine by MIDI. Use the powerful groove functions of Masterbeat, then when your loops are finished, export the MIDI file then Import it back into your favourite sequencer and you will have tight loops that would have taken days to programme in a sequencer.
