The deal ends in:




The Fast Track From Bedroom To Club

You don’t need to spend hours getting the balance of your kick and snare right, changing one sample only to find you need to re-do the entire rhythm. With VOID, you can touch a single key and nail the sound you want from the get-go.

It instantly syncs to your DAW’s tempo, and with only a few notes you can craft the perfect fills and breakdowns to make your fans scream with delight.

Break Away From 4-To-The-Floor

Straight hard-hitting beats don’t always get the job done. Sometimes you need that heavy syncopation you only get in liquid, jungle, and neurofunk.

VOID gives you the tools to create the perfect breakbeats without the need for samplers, endless beat slicing or monotonous rearranging.

Melt The Faces Of Your Audience

VOID has all the rhythms you could possibly need. But if you want to take a stab at creating your own from scratch, every kit lets you trigger individual drum hits at will.

Whether you choose to use the presets as-is or play in your own rhythms, you’ll be ready to create beats that melt the faces off your audience.

Let VOID give you a starting point, then simply take over the moment inspiration strikes.

Zero Experience Required

Even if you’ve never created DnB before, VOID’s transparent interface makes it easy to create crazy bangers without overthinking it. No hidden menus or obscure controls, and everything is clearly laid out for you.

How Is Beatmaker VOID Supposed To Be Used?

Think of UJAM Beatmaker VOID as a toolkit filled with a limitless arsenal of tools. For each groove there is a wide array of variations that help turn your song into a dynamic piece of music.

You can use one of the less complex variations (phrases) at the start of a song. After eight or sixteen bars you may want to add a fill to a busier phrase. As the song grows, you emphasize the dynamics by changing phrases and/or tweaking other controls (Sweep, Ambience, Mix, mod wheel intensity etc.).

For easier understanding, UJAM have borrowed a lot of terminology from the world of acoustic drumming. Drums played by a skilled musician are an ever-evolving performance that helps the rest of the band to build a song and make it sound interesting – and that’s true for any electronic music genre.

Never Spend Another Moment Beat Slicing Or Searching For Samples

As with every UJAM product, VOID benefits from their frustration-free design philosophy meaning anyone can use this product to make music faster, better and easier, regardless of their music production experience level.

Start playing!

Before we look at things in more depth, let us first explore how to play VOID, as that may be all you need for now.

The keyboard section of the UJAM Beatmaker window is dedicated to firing off drum hits and controlling the drum grooves. Keys in the left half trigger individual drum sounds, whereas keys from C3* and up let you select the various patterns that make up the arrangement of a song.

The basic principle is simple:

  • When you press keys in the C3–B4 range, UJAM Beatmaker will start playing a phrase with the groove. The rhythm patterns are conveniently named like song parts. When you release the key (and Latch is off), playback will stop.
  • With Latch on, you can stop playback by hitting B4 or one of the Endings (C#4 and D#4).
  • You can click on the upper half of any phrase key and drag the phrase into your DAW as a MIDI file. That is an amazing feature allowing you to edit patterns and use them across styles and even across Beatmakers!
  • MIDI notes C1–D#2 represent individual drum hits.
  • When you use the pitch bend wheel, you can gradually mute the kick drum and snare. By turning up the modulation wheel, you can create crescendos and decrescendos. Very dynamic!

If you know these things and can switch presets, you know all you need to start producing with UJAM Beatmaker.

*MIDI note number 60 is called C3 in some DAWs and by some synth manufacturers. Other DAWs and synth manufacturers refer to it as C4.

Try The Presets

At the top of the UJAM Beatmaker window you can load presets. A preset is always a complete UJAM Beatmaker setup, i.e. it will change the grooves as well as the kits and effects. At this point, just go through different presets and try different Style phrases to get an impression of the musical and sonic palette of UJAM Beatmaker.

Special Controls In Mix And Kit Section

There are a few curved sliders that you can use with any Kit and Mix:

  • Kick/Snare – This slider is placed left of the Kit Section and hard-wired to the Pitchbend controller or wheel on your keyboard. Using this control, you can temporarily fade out the kick or snare.
  • Beat Intensity – Placed to the right of the Mix section and hard-wired to the Modulation controller (or ModWheel on your keyboard), this real-time control lets you temporarily turn down the intensity of the beat – technically identical with MIDI velocity to create more dynamic variation.
  • Vortex – The Vortex slider creates the impression of sending the beat into a … well … vortex, whirling it around as you move the slider upwards. Use it to create mind-blowing risers and drops.

Interactive Keyboard

You can use the Interactive Keyboard to play a UJAM Beatmaker, but usually you want to remote-control it using a MIDI Keyboard or MIDI notes. The Interactive Keyboard also doubles as a display for notes received and played by UJAM Beatmaker.

The layout is similar for all UJAM Beatmakers, with little deviations in some of the special Instruments. This means that you can use MIDI patterns you created for one Beatmaker with any other one, or you can use dragged-and-dropped phrases between the different Beatmakers.

Kit Section

In this section you can select a drumkit by either clicking its name to open the list, or by stepping through the list using the little arrows. There are 10 kits to choose from, each with its own set of samples. Use the kit names as a guideline.

Styles And Parts

Although you can play individual drum kits, the real power of UJAM Beatmaker – particularly over audio loops – is in playing drum performances that you can real-time-control. All you need to do is tell your drummer which parts to play and when by using the Style section of the Keyboard, and it will create a complete song in a specific style.

In UJAM Beatmaker, drum performances are organized into Styles and Parts. There are 45 styles, each covering a particular groove. Styles are broken down into song Parts: You’ve got intros, verses, choruses, breakdowns, fills, endings, and bonus parts called “Special”.








 







Fine Tune Your Mix & Add Effects

Instrument Section

You can easily tweak and change the individual sounds that make up a complete Kit and/or Style. When you click on any of the Drum keys (C1–D#2), the name of that drum appears in the Drum Edit area directly below.

There are four knobs and an output switch for tweaking that particular sound:

  • Volume – changes the volume of the individual drum sound.
  • Decay – controls how fast a drum sound decays.
  • Pitch – lets you tune the drums by six semitones in each direction.
  • Filter (Version 2 feature) – the filter knob lets you apply a Lowpass (turn left) or Highpass filter (turn right) to tune the overall tone of your drum instrument.
  • Solo – lets you listen to a drum sound in isolation.
  • Mute – removes the sound of a drum from the mix until you press the Mute button again.

Output Section

You can choose to send any Instrument Channel either to the Master Section (default) or to an Individual Output that will be fed to an Aux bus in your DAW. The order in which Instruments are sent to the DAW is the same order as on the Interactive Keyboard, preceded by the Master Output.

Beatmaker sets up individual channels for all instruments individually – even HHTs and Toms have their own channels, with one exception: Cymbals are grouped to one Individual Output.

Note: Mute and Solo can’t be used for drums sent to individual outs.

Mix Section

The Mix Section of Beatmaker looks rather simple, yet under the hood it features a 12-bus mixing console with multiple audio processors in each channel strip, with hundreds of parameters macro-controlled by the Preset selector and the Amount knob.

  • Preset Selector – the Mix presets you can select here tweak hundreds of parameters in a Beatmaker’s built-in mixing console. Each Beatmaker has its own set of 12 Mix Presets, optimized for its particular genre.
  • Amount – lets you set your preferred balance between a neutral setting of the Mixing Console and the preset’s most extreme setting.

Tip: With the Amount Control fully up, step through the Mix Presets until you’ve found the type you like, and then dial down the Amount until you the amount of processing is just right.

Master Section

The Master Section processes the stereo output of Beatmaker, excluding the Instruments you’ve sent through Individual Outputs.

  • Sweep – the Sweep control is a dual filter.
  • Saturate – the Saturate Processor adds warm harmonic distortion to the master signal of Beatmaker, affecting the dynamic behavior as well as the overall dirtiness of the signal.
  • Maximize – the Maximizer is a popular audio processor that maximizes the perceived volume of a signal without actually raising its technical level.
  • Note: You will always want to find the right balance of Maximizer, Saturate and Volume settings depending on your material.
  • Ambience – the Ambience knob lets you adjust the amount of space.
  • Ambience Select (Version 2 feature) – above the Ambience knob you’ll find a menu for selecting one of the 6 available Ambience programs.
  • Volume – this slider and level meter displays and adjusts the output volume of UJAM Beatmaker for maintaining an optimal input level into the mixer or subsequent audio processors.

Building Songs Using Drag & Drop

Beatmaker lets you drag Song Parts from the Interactive Keyboard into any track of your DAW, where it will be converted to a MIDI region with editable notes.

To drag a Song Part from Beatmaker into your song, click and hold in the dotted drag area of any Song Part key on the Interactive Keyboard and drag the mouse pointer over to the target track.

Things you can do using Drag and Drop:

  • You can edit a Beatmaker song part just like any other MIDI sequence – e.g. change note positions, velocities, or add instruments.
  • You can combine Song Parts from various Styles into one song. Just switch Styles and drag away.
  • Best of all: You can even combine all of the above techniques freely to create your total custom beats.
