I need BM2 Sound Library/Pack converted to use with BM3

I really need the original sound library (pack) that came with BM2 to use (if possible) on BM3. Do you sell the original BM2 sound libray's DRUM MACHINE and KEYBOARD SAMPLER converted to work on BM3? I've searched through all 19 of your posted BM3 sound packs and could not find BM2's original sounds.

Please tell me this is something you can do and how much will it cost? LOL

  • @Ddad You can import all the sound packs from BM2 into BM3. Just import/move the BM2 kits into the banks directory in BM3 ..under the Folder Icon. If you do it all at once and don't see the change right away, go into Settings and hit > Rescan Database and they'll be there.

    I'll try that, thanks in advance. I'm trying to figure the steps out now...

    I've never actually used BM2 (slightly embarrassingly) but I am pretty sure you can load BM2 kits inside BM3 – provided you can find a way to transfer them from one app to the other

    A few small features are not supported, such as amp envelopes, but all sounds should be present, so you should therefore be able to achieve your objective of getting BM2 drum sounds into BM3 with just a little extra tinkering.

    Can anyone here with BM2 experience ( @hansjbs @mefisme @StudioES) please confirm if I've got this right?

    Just realised there was a dupe of this thread so I've merged them together.

    To the OP: please don't double-post. Hopefully it was just an accident in this case :+1:

  • I believe that's the method. Thanks @BitterGums & @tk32 . Use iTunes Files Sharing or BM2's FTP facility.
    iirc, it's important to save the imported BM2 preset as a new BM3 preset. (*.bmk3 file).

  • The easiest way is to find the *.ipa file for Beatmaker 2, rename it to *.zip, extract it and copy over the banks & samples over to BM3 and then re-scan the database...

    Yeah, I wonder when the question to 're-install BM3 factory content' pop's up :D
    The 'content' is in a *.zip file in the BM3 app-bundle and is extracted on first launch...
    (A 'Re-Install Factory Content' feature would simply un-zip the file but for now the user has to delete and re-install the app, DOH!).

  • Yes it can be done @samu got the quickest way to do it

  • OK I'm having no luck in finding a way to collect the BM2's *.ipa file or importing the original sound packs that came with BM2 (Drum Machine & Keyboard Sampler). I purchased BM2 and BM3 but cannot retrieve the original sound packs from BM2, do anyone have them or know a way to get them? I asked Intua (Vincent Bongiorno) if they where available to download from them (Pay or Free) but haven't received a reply as yet...

    Thanks in advance!

    @Ddad I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you need an ancient version of iTunes which archived iOS apps & their *.ipa files - current versions don't. iTunes 12.6 or earlier, which won't run on the latest version of MacOSX. You could use a Windows PC & iFunbox, an older version of iMazing, or paid version of Shelbee. That's the only way I know of to get access to *.ipa files, so hopefully someone chimes in with their knowledge.

    Anyway, give me some time & I'll see what I can do. I'll use my original advice - Use iTunes Files Sharing or BM2's FTP facility.

    I just set BM2 to File Transfer (FTP) and then added it as a source in another file manager to move the files all on the same iPad. That worked for me. Pretty easy with readdle docs.

    Save the built in packs as user packs in BM2, enable ftp, document the IP address (you already know the username, password and port), minimize, add as ftp server in readdle.

    Anytime you need to transfer files to/from ipad, load BM2 as ftp (file transfer) and it will connect in any other file manager on the same iPad that supports this.

    Here’s an image for readdle..Hope this helps.

  • Super thanks guys I found a link on their site that allowed me to transfer my previous beats (Projects & Presets) and it works GREAT.

    @StudioES & @mefisme I'm going to try your suggestions to attempt to transfer the complete Banks and Presets...

    Again I thank all of you for helping!

  • This is a good thread. Need to get my head around this stuff.

  • Bm2 library has a lot of good sounds and kits. Along with bm1 sounds also included. More worth having then a lot of the bm3 library you had to buy.

    It would be awesome if they did have those packs in sound store for downloads instead of jumping they hoops to get it. The sounds pack that were bought in bm2 has a lot of goodies to use also
