UBEAT LETS YOU DROP BEATS IN A FLASH, ALL WHILE MAINTAINING PRISTINE CONTROL OVER SOUNDS AND EFFECTS, BRINGING TOGETHER WORKFLOWS FROM THE OLD AND NEW. boom! YOU'RE ALL SET TO CREATE

DRUM PADS

The bottom half of this uBEAT view is occupied by the pad section, which consists of 8 pads. This is where the sound selection happens among a range of other functions. Sounds are mapped chromatically between C3 and G3 on the keyboard and is also available in a format that is more suitable for 16 Pad Grid Controllers - perfect for Maschine on any other controller with drum pads.

Each soundsource has 8 parameters that can be tweaked: Volume, Pan, Tune, Attack, Hold, Decay, Sample Startpoint and Velocity Sensitivity.

DRUM PADS SECTION

MIDI FILE BROWSER

The file browser allows you to load and preview both factory and user MIDI files. Factory MIDI files are available in two sorting orders: as all in one folder, or organized by kits.

Browse from the factory library that contains more that 90 Individual patterns and match them to their respective Kits to get the best sounding combination of drum kit and MIDI pattern within no time.

BROWSER & CONTROLS SECTION

MIXER SECTION

The Mixer view allows for easy visualization of the relative volumes, panning and tuning of all loaded soundsources. Many of the controls are duplicated from the main page in order to allow a more traditional mixer layout to tweak the drum kits during the mixdown stage, once the main patterns have been arranged in your DAW.

The Mixer view also includes an important addition: choosing the output for each individual pad, which includes routing it through uBEAT's powerful FX chains.

MIXER CONTROLS SECTION

HELP VIEW

To help you reference key points about the instrument better, we included a handy help view, accessible from the Settings menu (gearwheel button). There are multiple pages in the help view, each focusing on one aspect of the instrument's design or workflow.

Think of help view as mini-manual while you get to know uBEAT, or if you haven’t used uBEAT in a while and want to quickly skim through its workflow and important features.

HELP VIEW SLIDES

FX SECTION

The Effects view provides control over all of uBEAT's FX chains. There are 8 individual chains of effects, along with a global effects chain, and send effects loaded with two delays and two reverbs.

FX chains within uBEAT are like channel strips on a mixer. The difference: They are not fixed or attached to one mixer channel. This way, you can route multiple sounds to the same FX chain.

EFFECTS CONTROLS SECTION

TEMPLATES FOR MASCHINE

If you own a Maschine controller, uBEAT can make Maschine beat making and jamming a blast. uBEAT adds to your set of drum kits for Maschine. The Maschine Studio controller serves as a useful controller for the uBEAT instrument, by using both native NKS plugin mode and MIDI CC controller mode.

UNIFIED DESIGN LANGUAGE

All of Umlaut Audio’s instruments are designed with a consistent design language in mind. For instance, the FX Icons are abstractions that help you visualise the effect. One of the many unique design touches we add to our instruments.

We’ve created an entire family of instruments that complement each other with ARPS, PADS and uBEAT.  Read more about our design philosophy here.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

NKS INTEGRATION

All of our flagship instruments are designed to take full advantage of the NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD.  

NKS allows you to use uBEAT like any other Native Instruments’ library, accessing snapshots, integrating with NI Hardware and most importantly, automatically setting up the most optimum mappings on Komplete Kontrol devices for you to dive right in to your creative flow. Learn more about NKS here

NKS

MADE FOR KONTAKT PLAYER

We've partnered with Native Instruments to allow our engines to be fully compatible with KONTAKT 5 PLAYER. This means that you do not need the full version of KONTAKT 5 to be able to use uBEAT. The Kontakt Free Player is a great player to give uBEAT a spin.

HEAR IT FROM THE BEST IN THE INDUSTRY

audiojunkies and composers alike ENJOYED BEAT MAKING WITH UBEAT. HERE'S WHAT THEY SAY.

I really like the core concept of these instruments, and the feature set that derives from that is pretty cool. It’s nothing revolutionary, just very clever and well-executed ideas that are nicely put together, which is always great to see.
