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.

Winter Music Conference was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.

DJ / Producer / Label Boss - Subliminal Records

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

DJ, Producer

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.

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!

Ultra Music

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.
