by William Gilbert from Memphis, TNI have been using BPM for over six months now and I am very impressed with the software and sound library. There are sooo many sounds including synths, strings, guitar, bass, drums, etc. I also have... read more [+] MSI (made by Motu) so I can import the sounds into BPM and use the sequencer to fit it perfectly into the song. It also comes with effects and it's own mix board so you can mix on your beat before you ever get it into a DAW. It is easy to use and will inspire your creativity. close [-]

Now on to BPM. I originally had version 1.04 and upgraded to 1.5 with the court... read more [+]esy upgrade. With 1.5 you get the beatbox anthology which costs $149 by itself. Value!! Now 1.5 allows me to use my MPD 32 to control tons of parameters like effects and filter automation. Almost everything can be midi mapped in the software even navigation of the sound browser.
The sounds are very good. What's great though is that you can drag and drop sounds to the pads. I have tons of drum samples that i like to use to add a different feel to the preset patterns. I can even drop loops into an instrument rack and it slices it automatically to play on point at any tempo. I can take those slices and automap it to the pads as well. FLEXIBLE!!
The effects can be assigned to a pad, track, bank, and master output. The effects are really nice! Definately really nice reverb! Then to add grit BPM has that SP-1200 emulation too.
This is gonna be my go to software for drums and whole lot more since you can use any of the UVI soundcards (expansions) within BPM. I'm putting tracks together faster than ever before. close [-]
