BEWARE. STRICTLY SMOKE AND MIRRORS...

By Just Say No

from L.A.

Comments about MOTU BPM Beat Production Machine Virtual Instrument:

I am a professional music producer. I have several gold and platinum records. I have worked with huge artists on popular records. And I just wasted my money on BPM. It looks like an MPC and actually has a great library, but that's where the good ends. The program has many bugs, and I cannot get MOTU tech support to address them. I have been trying. The developers I've been in touch with believe the bugs are my problem, but as an experienced computer user I assure anyone reading this, that is not the case. The new beat slicer released in their 1.01 update is completely inadequate, not properly aligning with transients, many other issues. I don't like the user interface with FXpansion's Guru, but still, a much more solid program. Do yourself a favor, think twice.

Comments about MOTU BPM Beat Production Machine Virtual Instrument:

I just got this program 2 week ago after viewing the coverage on it from the NAMM. It works great with Akai MPD control surface. It is simple to use and it looks great.It comes with a 15 gig library and is expandable with various audio and midi formats. The sampling feature is off the chain and a snap to do. Go BPM because it allows you to focus on your creative flow without the headache of an extensive learning curve!

MPC 5000 Killer ?-

By Tackman

from Houston

Comments about MOTU BPM Beat Production Machine Virtual Instrument:

All I can say is I own both the BPM and the MPC 5000. If you are on a budget, get the BPM if only for the sample library. But it is of course much more than that. They have release a new version which addresses most of the concerns of the earlier purchasers. It is software based but it locks down a groove pretty tight.
