Looks really cool, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make it work

I didn't use it yet, but I wanted to rate 5 stars #1, Just the accessibility/availability factor... That someone went out of their way to create something that was on mine and others' minds. #2. Based on what the 1st comment stated of 2 issues 1-being a large HD size, and 2-only WAVs but you replied with that you're updating these things. So, it is also great knowing this is literally within the past few months so it's new & you're an active person. When I can, I will donate. Get paid Mondays. :)

When I seen this VST, I really liked it, but, when I install and tested it, I seen two grand problems that was enough to I let the VST of side. 1- Only support WAV files. 2- Is only in FULL HD (The VST size is very bigger than the laptops screens). I don't wanna depreciate the VST, I just wanna say this to developers see this and fix all that, if theses 2 things would fixed, I will download it again and I will return to use it. Great VST. ;D

Hi...i am working on version 2 of the VSTi..it will be laptop screen fit OK!...well..it wont run mp3 only wav though!!!
Oct 01 2018

Feb 14 2019

OI, we don't all use HD screens you know, how about a version with a smaller GUI for those of us who don't? otherwise it's next to useless
Mar 08 2016
Yes I agree... next version will be smaller..anyway.. I believe that if you use more than 1024x768 will be ok!!! Yet, I agree some laptops are basic on resolution! : )
Mar 31 2016
I'm using 1366x768, the highest my laptop screen allows, in FL Studio with it detatched to see above the DAWs GUI and it's still too big to see properly, and it's just as bad in Reaper aswell. If you made the gui halfway between 800x600 and 1024x768 then it would be useable

How can I use patterns B, C, and D? It seems like I can only use pattern A.
Feb 24 2016
Use the up and down arrow buttons where it says "steps" or the pop up menu right at side, that shows the number of active steps selected.
Feb 27 2016
Great! Now, if I want to hear only Pattern C in a loop, how is that accomplished?
Feb 29 2016
You cant.. probably on next version.. sorry!

This is really great I like it much more than FL Studios FPC. It works with my AKAI MPD26 very easy to map the samples. Still figuring out how to work the rest no one has put up a tutorial yet up on YouTube.

You can find some handy tutorials at www.beatassist.eu.. You just need flash plugin installed on your browser.

A hell of a lot better than a lot of the other drum programs I've tried. Anybody know how to get this working with a program like reaper though? Specifically, how do I map the pads to the piano roll?
Oct 20 2015
After mapping the pad cells to a MIDI controller, the note assinged on the controller will be the same note on the piano roll. All you need is a MIDI controller and map the pad cells.

Hi there. How do I create a loop? When I press on "start engine" only the first pad (base drum) is played. All the others are just played when I use the pattern fill mode. So except for the first pad, the other drums can only be played as a continous pattern, so every bar is just the same. E.g. I can't choose the 2nd pad to appear in every 2nd bar only. Can someone help me? Or is there any tutorial out there so I can get the basics?
Mar 28 2015
On Beatassist.eu website there are video tutorials that explain how to do a step pattern. Make sure each pad is set on pattern A so each pad goes on the same bar (like all pads on the first bar). Also adjust the number of steps you want to step record.

Combination MPC with a TR step sequencer! I've seen the tutorial videos on their website. It looks very easy to run the program once you get the hang of it. There's no pdf manual. One question, where's the swing function? Anyway, this plugin is sweet!!! THE ULTIMATE GROOVEBOX!!!

The cool thing. Waited a very long time, and something like that was free of charge. In general super plugin.
