Code 808.

Captain Beat comes with 2 monstrous 808 kits. ‘808’ is perfectly calibrated for tough, punchy drums, while ‘Code 808’ has that low-riding, bass-bin rattling swagger we all love.

With on-board customization controls that allow you to tailor the most immaculate 808 drums going, you’ll never need an 808 from anywhere else.

Drums done differently.

It’s all about workflow in Captain Beat. Effortless, fun and intuitive programming methods mean every beat is a joy to create. Speed up the repetitive bits, like progamming 1/16th note hi-hats. Lose yourself in the fun bits, like jamming out fresh rhythms in Magic Record. Use your pad controller, computer keyboard or MIDI device. Or cycle through per-channel rhythms until your percussion is perfect.

However you craft your 808 drums, Captain Beat has your back.

Fully-featured, frightfully good value.

Beats with more bang for your buck.

With all the features and more than the competition for a fraction of the price, it’s no wonder Captain Beat is loved by so many producers.

Quotes for Captain Plugins

David Guetta

“Captain can inspire you. I’m using it every day and showing my friends. Captain Melody is super convenient for songwriting. I love the color feature that tells you how stable the note is in the scale. It’s also cool to see what melodies are suggested when you are looking for a new idea.”
