Mix and process (FX)
With top-notch effects and a flexible mixer built right in, BPM has what it takes to add polish and punch to your production.
Mix pads, loops and instruments with ease
BPM's graphic mixer provides a channel strip with level meters, volume, pan, mute, solo, and FX controls for every pad and part in BPM. For top-level control, there are also channel strips for each bank and rack, letting you adjust entire kits or racks of instruments in one motion. Add in returns for three aux effect busses and a master fader, and you've got everything you need to fine-tune your mix.
Apply world-class effects
Dozens of professional quality effects are built right into BPM, including EQ, compressor/gate, filter, delay, reverb, phaser, chorus, drive, distortion and many more, all within easy reach with the multi-column FX browser.
Use unlimited effects slots
Everywhere effects can be added, you can add as many as you want and with the ability to add effects at nearly every point in BPM's signal path, you've got total control over your sound. Add unlimited effects to anywhere from individual pad layers to whole kits to all the way up to BPM's master output.
Place your beats in real acoustic spaces
For absolute realism, BPM's CPU-efficient convolution reverb places your beats into actual sampled locations. Dial in one of the dozens of included presets, or sculpt the sound until it's perfect.
Three global FX busses
Share effects between pads and parts using three aux effect busses. Each pad and rack part has independent sends for each aux bus.
Three bank FX busses
Bank effects are saved with the kit, so when you save and reload the kit, the bank effects are restored, too. This means that your effects programming can become an integral part of the sound of kit, ready to be tweaked at any time. Each pad has its own send level setting to each of the three bank FX busses.
Send banks and racks to independent outputs
You can mix everything within BPM's Mixer and send it all to the stereo main outs, or for maximum flexibility, you can route individual pads or parts or entire banks or racks to BPM's aux outputs. Use up to 99 stereo outputs (depending on the host) to break out individual elements for further processing.
