Main Screen

There are 16 beats which are broken up in to 4 bars of 4 beats, i.e. 4/4 beat. The first beat of each bar is denoted by a green pad button.

Once you have selected all the beats you want, press the play button to hear what you've created. While the beat is playing you can select or deselect beats and your changes will happen while you listen.

Changing a Channels Sound

Each channels sound can easily be changed. To do this simply press that channels numbered button, to the left of the screen. A list of all the available sounds will appear with a green tick in the box of the sound that is currently used. Select the sound you want and it will be loaded.

Tip: You can listen to a sound before choosing it. Simply press and hold it until a popup appears and then press Play.

Adjusting the Tempo

Adjusting the tempo can only be done while play is stopped. To adjust simply slide the slider left or right to change the bpm (beats per minute). Sliding to the left slows the tempo down. Sliding to the right speeds the tempo up.

Saving a Beat

When you have finished creating your beat it can be saved to open again later. To save press the Menu button and then Save to display the Save As box. If this is a new beat then the Save As box will be blank. Enter a name for your beat and press OK to save it.
