The Beatmaker series was built by the same team that created Virtual Guitarist (IRON, SPARKLE, AMBER, and SILK) and Virtual Drummer (HEAVY, PHAT, and SOLID). The Beatmaker series expands our palette into electronic music production.
Beatmaker DOPE brings you raw and authentic hip hop sounds combined with genre-specific patterns and a professional mixing engineer. You sit in the producer’s chair, with dynamic control over what this Beatmaker actually plays. Breaking the limitation of loops, a Beatmaker offers you the musical flexibility of a drummer.
Beatmaker DOPE features a selection of professionally edited drum sounds, audio processors, and groove styles, integrated with a professional-quality mixer console, all waiting to be fired off and arranged using your MIDI controller in real-time. With Beatmaker DOPE, you’ll be producing professional drum tracks in no time.
Beatmaker DOPE has been developed for everyone who finds drum loops too limiting and programming MIDI drum arrangements too tedious or challenging. It is also your personal style guide — whatever you produce with
Beatmaker DOPE — whether you feel at home in Hip Hop or not — will always hold up to utmost scrutiny. At the same time, with Beatmaker DOPE, laying down a drum track is now super easy: Select a Preset (it includes drum sounds and a full set of groove patterns) and control the drum performance in real-time by selecting song parts from your MIDI keyboard or mouse, and use the wheels for dynamic control. Beatmaker DOPE will play along in perfect sync with your performance.
Every sound in every kit has been professionally tweaked and mixed with the most powerful options available for you to get exactly the sound you want.
You and us
Beatmaker DOPE was built by musicians for musicians. The folks at UJAM are a pretty diverse bunch – from DJ to drummer to weekend producer to Oscar-awarded Hollywood composer. We build every product for ourselves, and, like you, we’re all users of Virtual Drummers and Virtual Guitarists too.
This means, that before we even start development, a lot of thought and discussion has to be done. What will you, the user, expect from the product? What problems does it solve? Which controls can be removed to make the product more inviting and simple, and which hurdles can we move out of the way?
Beatmaker DOPE is optimized for one clear, powerful purpose: To let you produce great-sounding drum tracks without distraction from the complex endeavor that producing a song is.
We hope that Beatmaker DOPE transpires that philosophy in everything you do with it.
Naturally, we’re always open to new ideas and criticism, and you are encouraged and welcome to talk to us:
