Splice announces new program: Beat Maker
Splice, the largely cloud-based music making platform, seems to be on an endless quest for innovation. Their most recent contrivance comes in the form of their interactive production canvas, Beat Maker.
Featuring a simplistic, intuitive interface, Beat Maker is an online forum that allows novice music listeners and seasoned producers alike to create and share sequenced beats. The layout of brightly-colored buttons can be used to mix in a variety of samples, such as kick drums, hi-hats, and snares. After laying down the initial components of a beat, the user can adjust the BPM of their loop and select from a rhythmic range spanning from the slower progression of a downtempo track, all the way up to a swift drum and bass cadence.
Perhaps the most advantageous aspect of the platform for producers is its integration with Splice Sounds, the company’s monthly subscription service. Through this service, users are privy to a number of sample loops and presets from established artists such as Lex Luger and KSHMR, from which they have the agency to produce their own beats.
