Sound libraries these days are awash with loops. And what is a loop, exactly? Someone else's beat. Isn't it time to take back creative ownership over your grooves?

Add further punch with BPM’s Drum Synthesizer. Combine unlimited sample layers per pad with programmable layer switching.

Top-Notch Sound,Sampling, & Sequencing!
Pros: Great Value,Powerful
Cons: Hard To Install or Upgrade

Sound:

I have found the MOTU BPM Product to be an incredible Sound and Idea engine which is also very enjoyable to use. In comparison to the software instrument I consider the most closely-related to BPM, Fxpansion's Geist, the BPM Engine to my ear has a higher quality of sound irrespective if using the 32 or 64-bit versions of either instrument. I also previously owned Fxpansion's previous incarnation, GURU, and found that while there are some great functions, the sound engine or algorithms to my ear do not sound as good as those of BPM.

Installation:

The only real issues I experienced were the somewhat involved installation and authorization process (which entails creating an account with iLok as well as UVI Soundbank); and if installing both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, making sure that the sound libraries are installed in the correct directories.

It was a surprise to find that after receiving the product, there was NOT an included iLok key inside the packaging, only the registration card containing the serial number for both the UVI Ultimate Beatbox and the MOTU BPM Instruments themselves. There are somewhat conflicting reports online as to whether or not an iLok is or is not included in the purchase of this product.

Overall, a great buy for the money. You have a full-range of Instruments to choose from. As others have noted in their reviews across the web, the sound banks are very hip-hop oriented, but there are great sounds representing all genres.
