OK so I go to iTunes, make a decision to buy a piece of $20 software 10 seconds after seeing it because the concept if so badass, two hours later I'm uploading my first track. I used a stock kit, but I think it came out rather well, especially a minute or so into it. Thoughts?

    Wow - I have done cakewalk, garagebamd, voyetra, and some others and not got something that cute together in such time -tight !

    Thanks! I really appreciate that. I'm gonna go back in and tighten up the hits on the samples I edited and change the arrangement around so that it is a it more exciting in a linear progression rather than waiting 3/4 through before stuff hits. That's why zoom controls on the sequencer would be so helpful, so you can have a better sense of your song's pacing.

    It's cool to know what sequencing software you use to get a sense of your frame of reference. I use Digital Performer, some softsynths, Logic Pro, and agree that I have never been able to put something together in such a short period of time that sounds so coherent. It really is like using an MPC, with a hell of a better visual sequencer! Thanks again for the comment, I'll post a revised version when I get some free time early next week.

    Sounds really good man,
    I had alot of questions actually about beat maker. I finally got my Ip address to work and just started messing around with the program.

    Still having a hard time placing my patterns down onto my Sequencer. I know how to lay then down. But as far as saving and making the tracks longer I'm still a little confused <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->
    Do you happen to have any advice or tips for me?
