Acoustica Beatcraft 1.02 build 19

Packed with a comprehensive library and several samples, this program enables you to create drum solos without the need of the actual instrument, add effects and render tracks to the HDD
Acoustica Beatcraft is a software tool whose purpose is to aid you in creating new drum beats, and comes bundled with an extensive library of professional drum sounds and audio effects.

Pretty cluttered interface

The installation process is a piece of cake, while the interface you come across might seem a bit overwhelming for beginners, as it comprises of a menu bar, a few panes in which to display various information, as well as multiple tabs, so that you can access specific options faster.

As a result, it is pretty clear that novices might have a pretty hard time in trying to find their way around Acoustica Beatcraft, while professionals will not encounter any kind of issues. Moreover, it does not include any kind of Help contents.

Use provided drum kits and templates to create your songs

It is possible to create new projects by simply inputting project title, tempo, measures, beats per measure, steps per beat and the type of drum kit you want to use. This program comes packed with a pretty impressive number of drum kits you can take advantage of, including Ambient Techno, Breakbeat, Freeloops Dance, BeatBasics Brush, Rock & Blues and Smart Loops Rock kits.

This application enables you to save projects to BCPROJ, as well as render them to WAV, MP3, WMA and OGG. Aside from that, it comes bundled with a pretty long list of templates you can take advantage of and edit, so that you can better learn how to work with it.

Add multiple tracks and effects, and loop audio tracks

As stated above, a pretty comprehensive library is available, from which you can drag and drop particular sounds so as to use them in your projects. This tool encloses a sequencer and enables you to manage multiple tracks in the same time.

It is possible to adjust the volume and pan of each and every sound you input, as well as bring up audio properties (name, path, date, size, length and format), and add effects from a provided list, which contains delays, distortions, reverbs and compressors.

Last but not least, you can change pattern length, create 8th or 16th note triplets, play a particular pattern or the entire project, and loop the song.

Conclusion and performance

The computer’s performance is not going to be burdened at all, as it does not require a large amount of resources in order to function properly. The response time is good and we did not encounter hangs or freezes in our tests.

All in all, Acoustica Beatcraft proves to be a pretty handy piece of software for drummers, yet the interface is not particularly friendly with newcomers.
