Ujam Releases Beatmaker 2 Upgrade With New Features


Tuesday, December 17th, 2019 |

UJAM has launched version two of their Beatmaker series, Beatmaker 2. UJAM is a German-US American maker of music technology co-founded by Hans Zimmer and Pharrell Williams that develops virtual instrument plug-ins. Beatmaker is a trio of virtual drum instrument plug-ins. The series is comprised of three titles: DOPE for classic hip-hop inspired by the 1990s, EDEN covering electronic music and HUSTLE for contemporary urban genres like trap.

Beatmaker 2 adds significant improvements and most commonly requested features. The update also delivers twice the amount of styles, patterns and presets for each Beatmaker, all created by renowned specialist sound designers for each genre.

UJAM Head UI/UX Designer Norman Schmielau says, “We’re really proud of the new looks of the Beatmaker series. Even though we added a whole lot of new features, like the Master Section, or MIDI drag & drop, the interfaces are still easy on the eyes and provide focus on the essential task: making music! With the style change from 3D to a more flat look, the Beatmakers now join all other UJAM instruments in their slick, modern vibe. Also, the top section with the genre-specific center-piece should be a real looker and set the tone for many more Beatmaker titles to follow.”

See a full list of the features added in this update. The Beatmaker 2 series is now available on www.ujam.com for 69 EUR / USD per title, the Bundle of all three for 139 EUR / USD. Upgrade pricing is also available.

  • MIDI Drag and Drop of grooves to DAW tracks allows for detailed note editing and song building. Beatmakers and even Virtual Drummers are cross-compatible.
  • Individual outputs let engineering-inclined users use their own mixing setup.
  • Twice the number of Styles, Patterns and Presets for each Beatmaker.
  • New Instrument Channels let users customize drum instruments.
  • The Mixer got expanded by compressors and filters for Room and Overheads as well as individual reverb controls and additional reverb programs.
  • The new Master Section with Saturation and Maximizer provides extra control over the master mix.
  • A new look makes working with the Beatmakers even easier on the eyes and brain.

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.

The Winter Music Conference represents a chance for Beatport to connect directly with our customer community. Having a strong conference means we have a platform to embrace the entire spectrum of electronic music culture. We are proud to support the resurgence of this great event.


Jonas Tempel

Beatport, Co-Founder

Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”

Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community. All throughout the 90s I was often getting written about by various high profile mags and websites for having contributed to help break many artists, DJs, producers and remixers. WMC enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof, especially at Groove Jet, where house music officially met Techno in my sets and it’s all been uphill since…TBC
