Styles and parts
Although you can play individual drum kits, the real strength of Beatmaker EDEN lies in its ability to play drum performances. All you need to do, is tell your drummer which parts to play and when, and it will create a complete song in a specific style.
Accordingly, in Beatmaker EDEN, drum performances are organized into Styles and Parts. There are 25 styles each covering a particular groove. Styles are broken down into song Parts: You’ve got intros, verses, choruses, breakdowns, fills, endings, and bonus parts called “Special”.
In this menu, you can select one of the 25 styles. Each Style features 24 individual Parts.
This readout displays the song Part currently selected by incoming MIDI note information.
