Its what you are emotionally.”

Look at all these features!
See why all the hitmakers are using it in their studios and while on the road.

Fast & Easy Navigation, Shortcuts, and Triggers

User Friendly Navigation will have beginners and music pros alike spending much less time 'figuring it out', and much more time making incredible music! The controls and layout become second nature in no time, and friendly keyboard shortcuts and triggers save you valuable time. You'll be able to make beats, arrange melodies, build custom kits, and finish songs in less time.

Quickly scroll through its 8 banks/octaves of keys/kits, 16 stereo channels with mute/solo per pad and channel, on-the-fly kit and sample changes, trigger rolls and holds, easy insert/copy of duplicate bars, and much more.

Quantize, Record Modes, Swings, & Bar Structures

Quantizing - For those new to music production, quantizing 'snaps' your notes into place if you lay them a bit off. You can quantize down to 1/4 and up to 1/64 notes. Or just turn it OFF for that natural, live feel.
Record Mode - Replace or Overwrite your performances with ease.
Swing - Simply adjust in real time and add up to 75% swing.
Bar Structure - Easily change up your bar length in real time. You can even assign different bar lengths to your separate tracks for more complex song structures.
PLUS - Click/drag, or tap in your tempo. Adjust volumes (master or per channel/pad), and build tons of patterns and change-ups fast. Save, edit, duplicate patterns, and add effects anywhere in a snap.

.WAV Editing & Autochop

On-screen Waveform Editing -Easily open up any sample (including the ones you import) and start editing the waveform directly in BTV SOLO'. Adjust nearly any parameter of your sample, including ADSR, Volume, Panning, pitch, and the start and end point. Quickly Autochop your samples to create useful kits and instruments in less time.

Autochop - Take your imported samples from your CDs, MP3 players, vinyl collection and more, and BTV SOLO will "automatically chop" and format these recordings into playable sections already spread across the pads, and ready for you to use in your own music. Editing samples can be a hard, long, and tedious task. BTV SOLO gives you a hassle-free automated process, giving you more time to be creative.

Effects, Delays, and Reverbs

Freak - Loaded with phasers, flangers, vibratos, choruses, pitch-shifters, high/low pass filters, and more. Freak takes your music to the next dimension with powerful, hard-hitting effects that will add dynamic expression to your sound.

Delay & Reverb -Choose from tons of reverbs and delays, or create your own. Each pad gets its own set of rules! You can give any sample in any kit or instrument the exact feel you want with adjustable send levesl for each pad. Usually a lot of processing power is needed to get each sound/pad/instrument/sample to host its own full set of attributes. Even with all 16 channels filled with custom treatments per pad, BTV SOLO will still keep pushing through whatever you throw at it.

Attack, Decay, Sustain, and Release

Attack - Decay - Sustain - Release are all important once you get down to details and advanced music production processes.
Attack - This is how fast a sound starts versus fading in a touch and softening the sharpness of the starting point.
Decay, Sustain, & Release - Adjust these to give your sound some tail-end echo or keep it tight and raw.

With BTV SOLO you can alter the attack, decay, sustain, or release of any sound you're working with in both Kit and Instrument Mode, allowing you to completely customize the sound of your drums, basses, pianos, synths, and more.

Precise Kit Building and Keyspanning

Kit building - For the advanced users (and beginners alike), you'll love quickly building new drums kits in less time. Quickly access a velocity sensing screen where you can edit start/end volumes and even assign voice groups! Build kits with up to 16 layers of sounds per pad, each triggered by how hard you play, giving you greater expressive control.

Keyspanning - Allows you to completely pitch-shift a single sample across one octave. This is great with drums when you roll your bass per pad, drop your snare on your gaps and fills, or just get crazy with your sound exploration kit sessions. Also use keyspanning to stretch any sample across multiple octaves, turning any sound you've loaded into an instrument you can play!

Pitch, Pan, Cutoff, and Resonance per Sound

Pitch - Raise or lower the pitch of any sample by clicking and dragging up or down. Great for working with acapellas, instruments, or even drum!s

Pan - Any sound can be panned from left to right with absolute precision. This really comes in handy for things like drums - where you want two of them in your left ear, the other two in your right, and a lead (or any instrument/sample for that stereophonic feel) in the middle.

Cutoff - Resonance - Volume-Adjust cutoff and resonance all on the same screen - no more jumping around when mastering kits. Adjustable volume & trigger type are here too.

Custom Kit Builder Mode

Build That Kit! - We give you quick guide icons to help walk you through what a standard kit looks like. But don't let that stop you from getting creative and mixing things up!
Whether you're choosing from the massive sample library that comes with BTV SOLO or you're importing all your own sounds (even thousands at a time), you'll build kits faster with BTV SOLO's simple drag and drop feature. Simply open any sample folder and drag the sound you like to the pad you like. That's it. The sound combinations are truly limitless!

Once you start mixing and matching samples, you'll find endless inspiration as you start to develop your own sound!

Custom Instrument Mode

That's my sound... Just like in Kit Builder Mode, here you can start assigning your own sounds, or the BTV SOLO library sound-to the pads, banks, kits, etc., and keyspan them to create new amazing instruments in seconds!

Want to create a new 8 octave instrument with a choir sample you loaded? Or maybe you want to layer 3 synths, a hit, and a sub-bass from the BTV SOLO library and create a new mega-synth? Do it all with ease in Instrument Mode. Just drag the samples to the pads, add layers if you want, and select how many octaves you want the instrument spanned across. Instrument Mode makes creating your own incredible instruments and crafting your own signature sound easier than ever before.

Song Mode Is Efficient and Smart

Finalizing Your Pattern Structure in Song Mode - now that was easy!

Once you're done building your patterns (let's say you made three patterns - one for your chorus', one for your verses, and one for your intro/outro), you simply line them up here in the order you want them to play, pick how many times you want each to loop, and hear your whole song play start to finish.

The screen shot is showing that the pattern 'Blaze' will loop twice (length of a chorus), then 'Blaze2' will loop 4 times (length of a verse). Do this a few times over, export, and you have a full broadcast ready track ready for use in studios, with musicians, recording artists, etc.

On-Board Quick Effects and Mastering Kit!

Quick Effects - quickly access your effects to get fast preview of your global effects sends. Choose from phasers, flangers, coil and old vinyl effects, reverbs, delays and more. Trigger over 60 presets or create your own and then send them to individual tracks, pads, or the whole song!

Bang - Add instant compression, limiting, EQ, and more to your tracks. Bang literally adds more 'bang' to your beat and brings your speakers to life!

Blang - Simply click on the Blang button to quickly change up BTV SOLO's skins. Select from a variety of included skins or import your own for that custom feel!

Modulation & Pitch Wheels!

Pitch - Add subtle note bends or mega octive-spanning drops and raises to your production with BTV SOLO's pitch wheel. Adjust from a half-step to a full two-octave bend. Not just for production, you can jam live with instruments.

Modulation - Have total control of yor filters inside BTV SOLO. Open & close filters and control effects with a built in modulation control.

Not just for live performances though - you can record and pitch or mod changes and add them to your productions. This translates to even more flexibility for your sounds! Our evolving technology gives you more all-in-one versatility than any other program on the market.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1Q: Do I need a music keyboard or special sound sard or anything else? Mac? PC?
1A:The only thing you need is a Mac or PC computer with working speakers or headphone jack.

2Q: Can I use my own samples?
2A: Simply copy your .wav or .aiff 16bit - 24bit sounds (or folders with sounds) to the 'samples' directory and you'll be able to sequence, edit, add effects, and more.

3Q: What's the difference between BTV SOLO and Beat Thang Virtual?
3A: In short without going into great detail: BTV SOLO has all the same features as Beat Thang Virtual, however it does NOT come with the sampler (but does have sample editing), it does NOT come with the VSTi (however is available as an optional add-on in the members area), and has fewer sounds. The rest of the features are the same.

4Q. Is this really the same as the Beat Thang hardware?
4A: Yes. BTV SOLO (and BEat THang Virtual) gives you all the functionality of the hardware in a format for you computer. All of the features, sounds, workflow enhancements, and even the audio engine are the same between the hardware and software.

5Q: If BTV SOLO is so great, why is it so inexpensive?

5A: Great question, we get it all the time. Short answer: we wanted a product that was affordable to everyone, that would give everyone a chance to produce amazing music. Of course we hope you love BTV SOLO, and upgrade to Beat Thang Virtual and the Beat Thang hardware or get more of our sound packs, but BTV SOLO is about empowering as many people as possible to make their own music. We want to keep it in reach for everyone.

6Q. Is this a plug-in? VSTi? Standalone?
6A: BTV SOLO is all three. It is a fully standalone system and optionally comes with a VSTi plug-in so you can use it with bigger DAW's. However you don't need anything but your computer to use it by itself (MIDI enabled in standalone version as well).

7Q. Does it run online or as a desktop application? Can I order it as a gift?
7A: It installs on your computer like any other Mac or PC application file would run.
You'll want to use your computers power to run this, not an online component relying on your internet connection for response times and overall work/creative flow... Quick tip for you - always get the desktop software vs web, always.

Yes you can order from work, or school, or anywhere, even order for a friend/family as a gift. What happens is: You order - & you get emailed with login credentials for our members area, and start your install process in there. So you can order now - and get to your home computer or other computer that will use it - login - continue with the install.

**NOTE: YOU ALSO GET TWO (2) LICENSES TODAY - So you can give somebody else a fully authorized copy, or you can run it on two of your own machines - both are identical without any limitations or differences. Enjoy!!
