Splice is a cloud platform for musician creation, collaboration and sharing. If you are a music, producer, or dj and don't know about it yet, you will undoubtedly know about it soon.
Amongst the many things that Splice offers, it has an incredible library of samples and plug-ins. Last week I was browsing the collection, geeking on how amazing it is that Splice allows you to simply pull a few samples from a pack. The only problem is that it's important to be able to hear samples in context to each other when pulling assembling a kit for a project. Well, it's like they read my mind.
Today Splice launched Beat Maker.
Beat Maker lets you craft sequenced beats using popular drum samples from Splice Sounds, and allows you to create beats using sample templates from renowned artists like KSHMR, Lex Luger, Pegboard Nerds and KRNE.
Jump over and check it out right now, simply select & deselect squares on the grid to adjust the rhythm, swap samples to choose your instruments, and share your creation with the world. The Beat Maker is free to use, and you don't need a Splice account or any other tools to get started. Check out my #BeatMaker entry and be sure to enter yourself in the contest (details below).
