Beatcraft's Future

Postby Anorax » Mon Apr 14, 2014 6:14 pm

I have a question that I'm positive has been asked before (and probably by me at least once, I don't rightfully remember...) – Will Beatcraft ever get another update, or has it been developmentally discontinued?

Beatcraft is a great program and an awesome, easy-to-use drum programming companion to Mixcraft, but looks and feels extremely outdated compared to the latter (Beatcraft hasn't been touched in almost ten years!). There are several components from Mixcraft that Beatcraft could certainly benefit from (one of which is drag-and-drop lane moving), and I was wondering if there's any possibility at all that Beatcraft will one day enjoy more accessibility features. Maybe someday we can see a build 20? :)

Many thanks,

Anorax

Hi,

We don't currently have plans to update Beatcraft. We're more likely to make drum programming easier in Mixcraft. Thanks for your feedback!

Greg,

could you give an example of what that might be??

Let me direct you to a video regarding Mixcraft 7, which is out now.

In short, a new, beatcraft-esque beat editor has been added, as well as two samplers - one for pitch manipulation of a single sample, and the other for drum sampler-style playback. Both the beat editor and the drum sampler (Omni Sampler) are showcased in this video.

I strongly endorse using Mixcraft for drumming now over Beatcraft.

Yeah I was a huge user and spokesperson (unofficially) for Beatcraft, I did an entire internationally released cd with it in 2008. But now, yeah the midi editing in Mixcraft is much more efficient.
