BPM is designed to work seamlessly with your drum pad or MIDI controller of choice. Here are just a few of the many choices you have to fully customize your beat-making experience.
Together, BPM and a drum pad controller give you a true beat box experience. Map hardware pads to BPM's sixteen on-screen pads and you are on your way. BPM includes template files that you can load into popular pad controller models to get going quickly. Then use BPM's MIDI remote control features to map additional controls such as knobs, buttons, and sliders.
Program your favorite MIDI keyboard to control BPM, both from the keyboard and any knobs, buttons, and sliders it may have. Use BPM's MIDI remote control features to map everything the way you want. Your keyboard can control both BPM and other instruments in your studio or stage rig, and you can easily record bass lines and keyboard parts into BPM.
MIDI keyboard controllers now come in many shapes, sizes, and price points. Many products now provide both a keyboard and a set of drum pads — and perhaps even a set of faders for mixing. There are compact models that take up minimal space and larger models that give you more keys. Either way, combo controllers are an excellent way to take full advantage of BPM's many recording, mixing and arranging features.
Percussion controllers also come in many varieties and can be used to bang out incredible beats in BPM. Some have a single, incredibly dynamic pad and others provide multiple pads. Depending on the product's design, you can use your hands, fingers, or even drum sticks. While not exactly a beat box-style experience, this type of controller can be invaluable tool for generating epic beats.
