Beat Thang fuses sequencing, sampling, and a massive sound bank with a very user-friendly interface. It's all packed in a rugged yet portable all-metal chassis, making it one of the most versatile music production instruments on the Earth. 3,000+ original samples were custom-created for this extraordinary library. It doesn't matter if your style is hip-hop, reggaeton, soul, funk, electronica, rock or post-polka zydeco Gregorian chants, Beat Thang has the sounds you need to create bangin' tracks. The Beat Kangz lived in the studio for two years painstakingly recording and tweaking the sickest sounds from classic drum kits, vintage instruments, rare electronics, exotic percussion and man improvised sound sources. All were performed and recorded through a menagerie of high-end digital and analog devices, meticulously preserving each sample's warmth and character. The Beat Kangz mastered each sample so you have trunk bangin' drops, aggressive kicks and snares, rich strings, chunky guitars, tripped out synths and tons of grit, depth, and low end to create with. You can also load or record your own samples to create custom kits and unique instruments of your own.
