“We wanted to create a product for all the people who aspired to be record producers but didn't know where to start, or they didn't know how to get the equipment, or it wasn't really accessible...That's why we went back and created Beat Thang Virtual SOLO.”
- 2x Grammy Winner Dallas Austin
We all know, creative inspiration comes from the ride side of your brain. Using audio software often relies heavily on the left side of your brain, requiring you to think logically about the software functions you wish to perform. This left-brain thinking often diminishes the artistry of your music making process, possibly without you even realizing it.
BTV is designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. There are no complicated shift functions or x0x’-style programming or other alternatives.
BTV isn’t lacking the common functions you’ll need, they’re just better organized. All the important functions for creating music have been given their own button. The rest of them have been moved conveniently out of view, just one click away, ready and waiting when you need them. This means that you get improved access to your creative inspiration, so you can create better music without barriers.
Create without boundaries: Get the standalone interface that is simple, elegant and organized. Perform, sequence, mix, and master with an award winning standalone interface that’s easy enough for a beginner, but powerful enough for discerning professionals.
To make original beats, simply tap your computer keyboard keys. The keys are tied to velocity-sensitive pads on the interface. You first enter Edit mode, hit record and, using the metronome for reference, play. To add further drums or instruments, select a new track and play more.
Lay down beats or arrange melodies across 8 octaves of keypads. 16 samples per pad gives you emotive control that's simple and accessible, so you can capture your wildest imagination in real-time.
Arrange patterns in real time over 16 tracks (internal or external). Adjustable swing, bar length (per track), quantize, and PPQ settings give you flexibility.
Connect MIDI controllers, keyboards, sound modules, and more. Send MIDI information and let BTV be a master or a slave when connected with other gear.
