If you dream of making your own music but are holding yourself back because you don’t know where to start, you’re in luck! We designed the BeatBox, a DIY MIDI controller drum machine kit, to be used by musicians of all experience levels, especially beginners.
Here is how we want to help you jump start you music career with the BeatBox:
We are offering free Melodics lessons made specially for our users to learn how to play the BeatBox. Melodics is a desktop music production education software that will have you finger drumming like a pro in no time.
We are also offering in-app tutorials on our mobile studio.
Building the BeatBox yourself helps you gain a better understanding of how and why it works which will make playing it more intuitive for beginners.
Popular music production software, like Abelton, can cost hundreds of dollars. On top of that, they tend to have interfaces that are difficult to navigate as a new user. We’ve built our own mobile studio and bundled it in with your purchase. We made it ourselves in house and have had complete beginners test it out to ensure it is easy to use. It is an application that you can download on your smartphone or tablet. We made sure you won’t have to lug around a laptop because we want the BeatBox to be portable so you’re not confined to producing in your bedroom. The mobile studio comes with four in-app tutorials that will teach you how to use it with the BeatBox. In the app you can upload your own sounds, record your songs, and much more. You’ll find there is no need to break the bank by buying a third party DAW. If you happen to already own one, have no fear! The BeatBox is compatible with most third party DAWs.
Melodics is a desktop music education program we have been using on our own to improve our beat making and finger drumming skills. Since we already love it so much, it made perfect sense for us to team up with them to make specialized lessons for BeatBox users. Thanks to our Kickstarter backers reaching the stretch goal, we can make that dream a reality! The software itself is free to download, and we will be giving our backers an exclusive access code for the lessons. The lessons are specially designed to be used with the BeatBox.
The BeatBox is a DIY MIDI controller drum machine kit, and we think the DIY part is integral to the experience. If you order a BeatBox, it will arrive at your doorstep unassembled with all the parts needed. There is no soldering involved in the building process, every piece is either screwed on to the chassis or uses quick connection. Building your own MIDI controller helps you understand how it works, which in turn will help you when learning how to play it. You will be more comfortable using the kit after assembling it.
You can pre-order a BeatBox on Indiegogo right now for a discounted price of $139. We have upgrade options you should definitely check out if you’re thinking of backing us.
