CREATE

A versatile way to create and play

Two Lightpad Ms form the dynamic core of the Beatmaker Kit. Play different instruments or drums on two tactile and responsive surfaces — or use one Lightpad to launch clips and loops. Unlock the full potential of portable music-making in NOISE, or connect your Beatmaker Kit to leading studio software.

PLAY ANYWHERE

Make music wherever you go

It's easy to compose and produce anywhere with your portable and wireless Beatmaker Kit. A stylish and protective Snapcase holds your Blocks together, so you play on any surface — from kitchen tables to park benches to aeroplane seats.

SOFTWARE

An extensive suite of software for any music maker

The Beatmaker Kit comes with a suite of high-powered music production programs. Whether you’re crafting your next masterpiece or just beginning to shape your sound, the perfect tools are right at your fingertips.
