One of the easiest ways to create grooves and electronic music
Loaded with amazing sounds from the world’s top electronic music producers
Flexible I/O provides integration with all of your studio gear
The basic concept behind the Beat Thang is to make sample-based electronic music production as simple and and intuitive as possible. That’s why BKE Tech designed it so that nearly every function has its own button or pad – forget about navigating through endless submenus! Even if you’ve never tried producing music before, you’ll find creating beats and grooves with Beat Thang fun and easy. But don’t confuse simple with limited – Beat Thang has serious horsepower under the hood. This incredibly sophisticated beat machine gives you all of the layering, slicing, sampling, and sound-creation tools you need to make fully polished tracks. And thanks to its rechargeable lithium-ion battery, you can even use the Beat Thang to make music on the go.
Great tracks start with great samples. That’s why BKE Tech loaded the Beat Thang with a collection of top-of-the-line samples, from funk guitars to award-winning keyboard licks, plus all of the drum sounds you could ever ask for. With its chromatic keyboard pad and side-mounted pitch shift and modulation wheels, it’s easy to see that the Beat Thang was made to give you more musical control over your sounds than a typical groove workstation. Add to that on-screen waveform editing, a powerful Autochop function, and over 60 on-board effects, and it clear to see that no sound is out of reach for the Beat Thang!
Extensive I/O that’s designed to be extremely flexible lets you use your Beat Thang in a variety of fun and creative ways. In addition to an XLR combo jack that lets you sample and record directly on the Beat Thang, it also comes equipped with MIDI for use with external controllers and sound modules. Want to load up your favorite samples? No problem, just connect your external hard drive via USB or load up your samples in one of the Beat Thang’s SDHC slots.
