BKE Tech Beat Thang Electronic Music Production Workstation at a Glance:
One of the easiest ways to create grooves and electronic music
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.
Loaded with amazing sounds from the world's top electronic music producers
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!
Flexible I/O provides integration with all of your studio gear
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.

by John Solano from Houston, TexasThe beat thang is awesome and the production is limitless. The sounds it come with a great sounds plus the sounds they have for down load are awesome too. But if you want to put your own sounds you ca... read more [+]n do that also. I have already made 4 beats in the month I have had it. The best part is that I can leave my studio with it and work on a beat. And being able to plug my keyboard controller into it along with a condenser mic. I can sample any sound I want when I want. BKE made a product for the pros and the beginners. GREAT JOB BKE!!!!!!! close [-]

by Warren Wortham from Waterloo, IA USAThis machine is going to change the music production and DJ scene in a major way. I say this because of the following:

1. This machine is so user-friendly that my 5 year old son and 4 year old ... read more [+]daughter have both composed beats on it. Not great beats, but nonetheless they created real and complete 4 bar beats.
2. The stock samples are absolutely incredible and it comes standard with over a thousand and then you get the free Dallas Austin Sound library upon registering it. You also now get a $100 dollar soundpack rebate too. I have the Alonso Choza, A Freedom Lyles and LayLaw packs and they are incredible.
3. The unit is portable and has a rechargeable lithium ion battery.
4. They are always issuing firmware updates which add new features.
5. The sound quality of the samples do not need any processing.
6. Multiple Storage options which can be via usb stick, external HDD, memory cards or to your computer.
7. It integrates with your software version of the unit (Which You Get Free in the box with the unit along with an extra license that they encourage you to share with a friend or relative).
I caused a very popular DJ out of Seattle to delay his mix-tape release because I gave him one of the 2 licenses you receive with the software and he instantly became obsessed with the software and is treating himself to the hardware version as a gift since it can be used as a controller for the software both in standalone mode and when the software is used in a DAW as a Plug-in. close [-]
