easy beat 2.0 released - the easy-to-use MIDI sequencer now available for Mac OS X


Hagenberg, March-11-2004, ergonis software today announced that another piece of it's macility software collection - the popular MIDI sequencer software easy beat - has been released today in version 2.0. Starting with version 2.0 easy beat runs on (and requires) Mac OS X.

"With the introduction of GarageBand, Apple impressively demonstrated its commitment to musicians, and we couldn't be happier about that" said Christoph Reichenberger, founder and CEO of ergonis software. "This is the best possible point in time to make easy beat available for Mac OS X."

easy beat is the MIDI sequencer software for all who neither want to spend the money to purchase nor the time to climb the steep learning curve of other, huge and complicated sequencer tools.

easy beat features:

  • up to 16 tracks plus a metronome track
  • 100+ instruments and drum kits with the software synthesizer; when an external synthesizer is used, easy beat can use ALL its instruments.
  • multiple views (score, drum, keyboard, TAB, chords, controllers)
  • import and export of standard MIDI files
  • export of QuickTime movies and AIFF files
  • background music (play a song while you edit it or work with other programs)
  • single-track real-time recording (requires a MIDI adapter and a MIDI instrument)
  • stylistic variations (shuffle, emphasis, arpeggio, delay, ...)
  • high-quality score printing
  • templates for frequently used note and controller fragments
