    Very clear installation on mac dvd 3
    Config Gnral easy thanks to the user employs (french on request)


    ADQUATION / PERFORMANCE

    I use it on mac via logic pro but it is possible to use "alone" I heard it is more stable on Mac and PC
    some bugs for premires version, but rsolus

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for 6 months this is my first virtual sampler and I'm happy the quality of the sample are truly monstrous

    269th for ca mpc will !!

    The installation is done it without problems?

    I do not know about mac being under windows. I installed windows xp and under seven. Some constraints forcing them to copy shortcuts bank's 17 gigabytes in the same folder as the dll ... anyway! It could have been easier but it is not dead!

    The general configuration is easy?

    Former user mpc, configuration seems familière.on sees when entering the details that is far from the last mpc.Il flexibility is very simple to create a pattern with excellent sound bank available to the app that in fact also one of its main interests.
    MPc early on, we were limited in the visual editing pattern and song because the screen is permitted pas.15 years after the UVI developers have seen fit to keep the same visual impairment probably to keep in mind!

    More use standalone is very limited and does not allow to use other vst internally. Example to put a UAD compressor on an internal bus you need to open bpm bpm vst in your DAW!

    Have you experienced any incompatibilities?

    A mess on PC! Again I do not speak for mac that I used pas.Des bugs in series. The undo is very random, it is better not to make mistakes or deleted by mistake. The (very practical in appearance) editing functions are not reliable and notes shift them even as sseions becomes "loaded" (about 7-8 patterns). Basically you play a groove and elements of tempo hero finds no apparent reason at the next login! The "loop" function to carefully cut the samples can only be used with the mouse scroll. Jai .. mouse logitech marble mouse is not recognized and I have to change my mouse if I want to use the magnifying glass!
    Adding layer to the stacker is more hazardous sound and you will often uncheck the "edit all layers" option which joins the same treatment to all samples and that "Récoché" reasons alone without doing so you lose the affected settings chacque has added to its layer! All this causing great loss of time, to repeat what has already been done and loss of spontaneity! I pass and best.

    The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

    The manual is more than necessary for the installation, for the rest we do not learn much! .. We know that a filter is used to filter, that eq equalize etc. ..

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Intel Quad Q6600 2.4 ghz
    8 gig of RAM
    Win seven 64 bit
    RME Babyface, UAD card ...


    BPM is somewhat greedy May it is understandable given the number calculations to manage.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 years and I've had time to test the beast in every corner! The date of 2007 and the last significant update (1.5) software is from 2009 .... (aouch!!)

    The idea of ​​this software is very good on paper and I've been able to do with many projects (not without difficulty) with BPM.
    However developers have literally abandoned users with their app that seems to me to be a beta version, a demo they sell and continue to sell (very expensive in terms of innovation competition, Maschine, Fl Studio!) With too many bugs! An update is required CONCRETE with optimization in publishing as I said the app could be very well without all these defects causing loss of time so it is better to actually lose in the long learning another "step by step".
    In anticipation of a serious update, If you are looking for something simple and intuitive works on, go your way!

    The installation is done it without problems?
    No worries for me.

    The general configuration is easy?
    Very. I never read the manual (I will. Someday!) Because it is super intuitive

    Have you encountered any incompatibilities?
    Slight problem with ProTools sync .. when I start playback from the beginning of the session and that BPM is on a track, it is shifted minutely, so I have to place my cursor to a position before pressing play.
    Even with ProTools, when the cursor is placed on some grid lines, BPM does not start .... we must shift the cursor again.

    What is the configuration of your computer?
    MacBook Pro i7 2.7 Ghz/8Go Ram / internal sound card base / MBox 2mini

    The software works he correctly on this configuration?
    Well, I do not remember BPM crashed one day.

    This software + hardware is stable?
    Perfectly.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you been using?
    4 years.

    Did you try many other models before buying it?
    Yes but not before after (Battery 3 Drum Rack ableton ..)

    What is so special that you like most and least?
    As:
    Provided its bank is huge!
    Super intuitive, if you have an idea in mind can recreate in minutes, ready made kits are efficient and well organized, you can navigate easily to change a sample and you can assign controllers (MPD32 for me) easily .
    The effects are effective and some mixing is very well designed, you can easily assign as 16 mix outputs for each sample in a sequencer.

    Minimum:
    Requires iLok ............ we say that this is not a problem but when you find yourself wanting to call / listen to one compo someone and not on its own ba iLok just can not! and we say that there really is not practical!
    I liked the samples of the bank are in the. Wav to be used outside BPM ..
    Lack of integrated sidechain compression (I think) to add a sub kick correct.

    How do you rate the quality / price?
    A good case with which we can go far!

    With experience, you do again this choice?
    ........ I'm trying to get away from products that require a iLok to never be bothered. I hesitate with Maschine that looks nice thanks to its dedicated controller.

    BPM (Beat Production Machine) is compatible with Windows Xp ,Vista , 7 and Mac OSX.
    I haven't encountered any problems regarding the help manual, everything is pretty well explained and the functions are easily accessible.
    The general configuration is great,everything works fast and the interface easy to follow and use.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    The software performs well without using a lot of cpu resources and it provides some great balance between the human touch and the pc programming of the drums.

    The gear is very stable, I hadn't had any errors working with it.

    I've been using for about 1 month, and I gotta admit it works very well , I've used this machine more in my pop , rock composition.

    OVERALL OPINION

    What I like most about it is the feel that this drum induce which are some classic drum machines of the 80's and 90's.

    I like a lot the library provided with it, which consists on 15 gb of pure drums , it has a drum machine-style operation with advanced virtual instrument that allows your creativity to reach a higher level.

    This product has over 10,000 individual samples , over 1,000 new drum and percussion loops that have a 24-bit 96 kHz audio quality.

    It also contains over 200 drum kits + patterns , over 100 urban multi-sampled instruments , some great comprehensive percussion samples, patterns and loops.

    Another great aspect of this product is that is has 64 pads per scene , great controls to mute , solo , change velocity , etc .

    My opinion about the value of price is very good , this product comes with a vast library that allows to make something unique and it costs only 300 $.

    Knowing what I know, I would buy this product because it's one of the best drum sequencing I have ever tried.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    If you use MOTU BPM with ASIO drivers you will have very good playback and glitch free low latency usage. But without ASIO drivers depending on what you system specs are you could experience some issues with latency and glitch like behavior during playback. Though it is very easy to install, the program is much bigger than expected and it can eat up your CPU quickly. Especially when you get into processing all of the effects, you will almost have to be using an ASIO driver in order for it to play smoothly.

    OVERALL OPINION

    One of the worth the money features , are that you have an unlimited FX slots per rack, so you can just start stacking those effects up on top of each other and get some really cool sounds, but like I said if your drivers are not under control you will not be stacking too many effects together before you start to experience choppy playback.

    This software is good, and it comes at a decent price. I just did not have a need for it so I never used it after the first few initial times. It does come loaded with a lot of synth, bass, and drum sounds. It is also ready to go right out of the box. No hard set ups or anything like that, the manual that comes with it is pretty thin, but it helps you a lot if you need it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For two years I have .. I did the acquisition of an Imac so I'll install it soon.


    I have not try before ... a little from my MV and my Mpc 1000.

    What I like most about this software is the huge possibility of synthesis ... you can enter any drumkits "average" in and do something big .. I like her a lot sequence that closely resembles that of an MPC.

    The value for money is reasonable I would say I paid 329 euros a time .. a little under Save rather than buying an MPC.

    It may seem paradoxical, but the choice I would do your eyes close .. The best software any category ... editing ... .. the sequencer synthesis ... Not to mention the new sound banks UVI Soundsource that the we just add .. wow ... frankly this software is designed to cross the decades.

    If motu decided to leave the control surface ... just like that pictured on the package ... It is clear that it would put everybody agrees ...

    Even the MPC studio that will release soon is not the standard of MOTU BPM.

    MPC studio mashine ... ... more than expected MOTU develops its control surface which would enormissime!

    If BPM does not provide chip is dedicated to a way of Maschine, it can easily integrate any of your existing controllers. BPM does not claim any one as Maschine, it focuses on the beat and the groove area and is used to make better and faster than its competitor.

    The bank's home since version 1.5 contains a comprehensive library of drum machines of the past. The original bank in turn, is more access bcp Rap as minimal techno of Berlin. But BPM eat anything you want to give it.

    To summarize: BPM is a virtual groovebox first class, capable of composing beats a professional high speed "V", with its intuitive tools and ergonomics perfectly thought. One who already has a MIDI controller or the one who appreciates the comfort of a computer screen should consider BPM.

    I have not had any slowdown in the stuffing "flush the mouth"
    Really stable in my config

    OVERALL OPINION

    I for a week
    It's a real "gas factory" and Kits, Pattern, samples are numerous opening the door to possibilities almost infinite. This app read over the bank and UVI Mach5 ...
    The only gripe some banks are fairly similar varying only by subtle changes
    I try a lot of software of this type (iDrum, Guru) MOTU BPM is really far ahead. THIS IS to my knowledge the only app that combines drum lines, sample / boucleset virtual instrument (owner, does not recnnait VSTi). A "mini" Reason
    It is almost possible to create a real model, to insert effects at all levels (plus Aux / return) and mix in finesse
    The value for money is excellent, less than 300 euros for a full of MPC samples + instruments + drive loop type Live / acid
    For now I am delighted

    Former owner of the MPC, I found this a mixture of soft and mv 8000 mpc with the advantages of a computer.
    Before buying it I tried guru at FXpansion, easier to use, but less comprehensive and precise in the sequencer. Nanmoins guru interface is much simpler.
    Clearly I coneillerait Guru to people who do not want to lead the program and hours Bpm people who like precision. Bpm Note that a function to emulate the sound of old sp 1200.
    With experiience j'hsiterai yet between the two app that both have their advantages.
