Beatmaker 3 Traditional DAW
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

I AM SO STOKED to share the latest BM3 guide I just produced. I think it’s going to blow the app wide open for those who still struggle with the app. Those who come from traditional DAW style work flow. The genre of choice Shoegazer/Space Rock/Post Rock whatever you want to call it was a LOT of fun writing and producing for you in this video. I completed a video I’ve had in my mind for about seven days. The goal is to continue with keeping things simple and down to earth so that I could help those who struggle with Beatmaker 3. I want to help you see it as a traditional DAW with bonus other features such as a wicked sampler, clip launching, and automation versus the other way around.

Beatmaker 3 Now AUv3 MIDI Host
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This update of Beatmaker 3 adds AU Midi plug in support. This means you can route AU Midi plugins to other tracks/instruments within Beatmaker 3. Here is an example of Bram Bos Rozeta Particles running inside Beatmaker 3.

BeatMaker brings unmatched efficiency and depth in an intuitive audio and MIDI workstation. Look no further, the power of traditional desktop software and real hardware is now united into one single production studio.

What’s New in Version 3.0.8
Sound store downloads issue now fixed! Enjoy this amazing update!

[Overall improvements]
– Song position readout, in the transport bar, can be switched between BAR:BEATS, MM:SS.MS and SMPTE, simply by pressing it.
– Support of MIDI knob increment/decrement (“infinite” encoders), via MIDI RPN/NRPN.
– The transport bar record button will now be red when recording.
– Added an option, in the recording panel (press the ‘Q’ label on the transport bar), to disable minimal note length quantization.
– It is now possible to show/hide the left global navigation bar while displaying the AUv3 keyboard screen. This gives access to effects and macros from that view.
– It is now possible to tag packs & categories on a selection of files and directories, recursively from the Browser in files mode.

[Sampler & Plugins]
– Support of AUv3 MIDI plugins. Now, BeatMaker 3 will create virtual input MIDI devices for each AUv3 that supports MIDI out. This way, you can route MIDI messages to other plugins and the sampler.
– Added a ruler button on the full-screen sample editor to switch the time reference of the bottom grid between seconds, samples and bars/beats.
– When using the “Add to existing layer” sample load method, get the currently selected layer rather than the last one. The layer can be selected from the editor screen > SAMPLES tab, just below the small pads selector.
– Added move left/right and zoom in/out tools on the mapping editor toolbar.
– The “Stereo to Mono” sample process tool now offers the possibility to use only the left or right channel.
– When selecting a sample from the mapping editor, highlight it as well in the “SAMPLES” listing.
– When drag’n’dropping a sample that is added to an existing layer, auto-select it in the “SAMPLES” listing.
– Added tooltip next to sample markers when moving them, that will follow the current ruler unit (seconds, beats and samples).
– Improvements on the “Zero Snap” tool: adapt scan size to the currently visible range and find the closest zero-cross against all channels.
– Sample editor zoom in/out is now behaving more naturally.
– Sample editor move left and right buttons will now behave more naturally.
– Double-tapping the sample editor “START/END” or “LOOP” button will focus and recenter.
– In the full-screen sample editor, added a marquee above sample & loop start/end markers to make it more obvious the area can be dragged.
– Zoom in/out and move functions are now consistent on all three modes: select, slice and normal.
– “Grid Snap” can now be used in Slices mode in the sample/slice editor.
– Long press on [-] and [+] on the sample editor will resp. fully zoom out or in.

[Sequencer]
– Added a setting for the transport stop behavior: it can either go back to the start of the track, or on the latest position (by pressing the bar / position in SONG mode).

[Bug fixes & engine improvements]
– When drag’n’dropping a sample onto the mapping editor, follow the browser load method.
– Fixed an issue where it was not possible to drag’n’drop a sample after C5 on the mapping editor.
– Fixed Modulation Delay effect that would still apply processing when depth was set to 0%.
– Fixed an issue where exporting sliced sample to Apple Loop will not preserve number of beats and tempo.
– Fixed an issue in the browser where sharing a file from a group would bogusly pick another file.
– Fixed the Auto-Scale feature.
– Fixed a crash that could happen when using samples with bogus metadata.
– Fixed an issue with the validation of purchases on iOS 11.2.
– Fixed double tapping of a value in the parameter panel.
– Fixed an issue where the mixer would not show any level.
– Fixed an issue where audio recording wouldn’t start or record anything.
– Fixed a crash that would happen when exporting slices to a new bank.
– Fixed a browser issue that would happen when dropping a file back onto itself.
– Fixed a crash that would happen when duplicating pads with AUv3.
