    BKE Beat Thang by Dallas Austin Product Description

    Brought to you by BKE and 2-time Grammy winner Dallas Austin, the Beat Thang is a breakthrough product in the world of sample-based music production. The world's first fully- portable professional workstation, Beat Thang allows you to create your own beats, grooves, and electronic music compositions wherever and whenever you want. Pick from an extensive array of thousands of original, high-quality sounds, upload your own, or plug in a mic and record samples with ease. Designed to feel and play more instrument-like than other workstations, Beat Thang's expressive controls and no-nonsense workflow make laying down tracks quick and surprisingly easy.

    Beat Thang's innovative controls and rugged, portable design makes this standalone sampling studio all you need to make beats and grooves on the go. Every control surface, from the velocity-sensitive chromatic pads to the side-mounted pitch and modulation wheels, was engineered to give you greater artistic control over your samples and manipulating effects. With function-dedicated buttons, a useful file-filtering system, and multi-purpose scroll knobs, navigating Beat Thang's menus and directories is a cinch.

    Great music starts with great sounds. That's why BKE paired up with the best producers and players to bring you a massive, all-original sound library packed with over 3000 premium electronica, dance, hip hop, funk, R&B, rock, pop, and world samples, chops, and loops. Also included with Beat Thang is an impressive collection of over 1000 premium samples from the private collection of Grammy-winning super-producer Dallas Austin.

    This is just the beginning, as the Beat Thang allows you to edit and manipulate just about every aspect of your samples through advanced waveform editing, non-destructive autochop, timestretch, and pitch-shifting features, as well as over 60 studio-quality effects. This state-of- the-art beat machine gives you all of the layering, slicing, sampling, and sound-creation tools you need to make fully polished tracks, while over 300 pre-constructed kits, patterns, and acoustic and electronic instruments give you loads of content to hit the ground running.

    While Beat Thang is a fully independent production workstation, it's extensive I/O lets you seamlessly connect to your other gear. Plug in your external controller, keyboards, or sound modules with MIDI In/Out and multi-functional USB A and B ports, and quickly load your samples and projects through USB keys, external hard drives, or through one of two (2) 32 GB SD card slots. An XLR combo jack with Phantom Power lets you record mics or guitars directly on the Beat Thang, and BKE's AU/VST plug-in software, aptly named Beat Thang Virtual, offers file sharing, drag/drop functionality, and DAW integration rarely seen in a true hardware device.

    The team at BKE is fully committed to being there for you. You will receive free, lifetime live technical support from trained engineers and producers, as well as access to tons of online training and tutorial video content. And because the Beat Thang operating system is capable of future online upgrades via USB, BKE offers lifetime free upgrades so you can enjoy software and firmware enhancements for years to come.

    With excellent build-quality, an impressive workflow, and a vast feature and all-original sound set, Beat Thang is quickly emerging as one of the most popular options in the world for sample- based production, groove-making, and live performance.
