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.

Testimonials

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.

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.

Director, North America - YM&U Music

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.”

I’m so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation. It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!
