To launch Beatmaker, tap the middle icon on the bottom navigation bar:
Beatmaker consists of two different modes: Pads and Sequencer.
Pad mode lets you to assign Splice samples to 8 playable pads for real-time playback. It's a great tool for hearing how different samples sound together, for building drum kits, and for creating sketches to flesh out later! To assign a sample to a Beatmaker pad, simply tap the Beatmaker icon to the left of the 3 small dots on a sample while browsing for sounds, and then select a pad.
Our new Sequencer instrument takes the original Beatmaker a step further by allowing you to draw in custom sequences, using the samples you've assigned to the 8 available pads. To switch from Pads mode to Sequencer mode, just tap "sequencer" at the bottom of the Beatmaker screen:
Once you're in the Sequencer, you can draw in a unique pattern for up to 8 different samples to create a custom beat. Just tap on a square next to the sample you want, to add it to your sequence.
To change the tempo, just click the settings icon in the bottom-right corner. There's also a "clear pattern" button here if you want to start over. Tap the "play" button in the bottom-left corner to play back your creation.
