Pick your instrument set and adjust each one’s volume, then begin making music
To get started, you should select the instrument theme you wish to work with, opting between ‘80’s Drum Kit’, ‘Roland TR-808’, ‘Cats and Dogs’ or ‘Human Beatbox’, each comprising a different series of sounds.
In terms of play mode, you can opt between ‘Single Sweep’ and ‘Scatter Sweep’, after which you can begin defining the notes of your song by clicking on the dots on each circle (which represents an instrument), the active ones acquiring a brighter color; to deactivate them, you can just click them a second time.
You can use up to nine different instruments, in any combination you like. Moreover, BeatSpin offers you the ability to adjust the audio volume of each individual object, ranging between 0 and 11 for each one, so you can configure it according to your preferences. You can then click on play and listen to the generated sounds.
Once your track is complete, you can save it to your computer, to a default location. Unfortunately, you cannot choose the destination folder or the output format, and you cannot access them from an independent media player, only from BeatSpin.
