Keyboard

You can use the following keyboard shortcuts while composing a track.

spacebar

Press to start or stop playback.

commandcontrol key

Hold down the commandcontrol key while drawing notes to create "loud" notes.

optionalt key

Hold down the optionalt key while drawing notes to create "soft" notes.

shift

Hold down the shift key to select a region of notes. You will then be able to copy and paste or clear that region.

Advanced

Playback starting point

By default, playback always starts from the beginning of a track. This can be difficult if you want to focus your attention on a piece in the middle, or near the end.

You can change where playback begins by setting the playback start marker. You can do this by clicking white area just above the grid. A blue arrow icon will be placed where you click. Playback will now start from this point.

Clicking on the arrow icon again will remove it.

Column volume

There is a speaker icon to the left of each row on the grid.

Click this icon once and you can control the volume of that row.

Double click this icon and you can mute or unmute the row.

Hey guys,

This is a test of a new forum/voting system that I"m building.

I'm thinking we can use this for general discussions and for remix contests. Let mw know what you think.

jon-a-thon Don't think ur idea had a huge take up. Most post stopped 3yrs agos & there's a 17day newbe on a tutorials HelpMe board Hope you've not bn lonely. I'm just starting my beatlabs experience..i'm finding it addictive. Got proper real world stuff needs doing & I've spent last hour or more playing with noise. Fun though. Hope I'll come back & have another go soonish :)

It's easy, you make the best beat of the week, but be careful, make a heavy beat, heavy, otherwise you will not have many likes
