Built for Making Hits

David Guetta

David Guetta wrote the melody and chords for his “Stay (Don’t Go Away)” remix with R3hab using Captain Melody 3.0 beta. David Guetta writes: “Captain Melody is super convenient for songwriting. I love the color feature that tells you how stable the note is in the scale. It’s cool to see what melodies are suggested when you are looking for a new idea.”

Captain Beat

Captain Beat Captain Beats Mixed In Key
When you’re making electronic or urban music, getting your drums right is half the battle. Captain Beat gives you complete control of your beatmaking by equipping you with a multitude of patterns, drum kits and the ability to record and edit your rhythms.  Use Captain Beat to easily mix and match patterns from different genres to create original percussion.

Beats are laid out on the Drum Roll, which includes a vertical stack of the drum sounds available in Captain Plugins. Original patterns can be recorded in by finger drumming on your keyboard or MIDI controller. If you prefer to draw in rhythms, the Pencil Tool can be used to sketch in beats. Sounds can be sculpted inside Captain Beat using the envelope, pitch and pan controls, and effects such as a filter, reverb and delay. Lastly, finish by exporting the Audio or MIDI to your DAW.

 

Captain Beat includes two new Pattern Packs by L.Dre and Polaris (Hospital Records). L.Dre has created a pack of raw hiphop patterns, while Polaris has created an inspiring pack of driving drum & bass patterns. No matter what style of beats you’re focused on creating, Captain Beat is a fun to use plugin that can help you to achieve your beat-making goals.

All of the Captain Plugins are available now for PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats. Captain Plugins is $79 and Captain Beat is $50. Both plugins can be purchased together for $99. Find out more on the Captain Beat and Captain Plugins websites.

Testimonials

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.

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

If you want to know about our industry from the people that make it happen then go to WMC. It’s an accelerated masterclass in all things dance music.


Carl Cox

DJ/Intec Records

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.


Erick Morillo

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


Danny Tenaglia

DJ, Producer

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.
