Drums, beats and percussion constitute the core and heartbeat of a song, helping the music tap into our primal selves and providing an anchor for the melodies and lyrics to hang from. Electronic drum machines have been helping to provide this heartbeat for over 50 years and their influence and unique sonic signature can be found across all genres of music from disco and pop to EDM and hip-hop.
With the release of Beatmaker 2.2.0, all Beatmaker plug-ins are now compatible on both Apple Silicon as well as macOS 12 Monterey. The easiest way to update is via the UJAM App. Together with this free update, all Beatmakers are now available in VST 3 format.
