We realised that most Hip Hop beat maker plugins were not intuitive due to using MIDI notes for visual sequencing. As Captain Beat uses actual audio waveforms it gives a much better representation of what’s going on in your drum patterns.

This unique feature creates a transparency which is reflected in your drums. It’s like working with audio in your DAW, but better.
