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.

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.

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

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

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.”


Kaskade

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.
