Updated Roadmap 4 (1).png

Stepping up to the task -⁠ Q4 2023

Our goal for the remaining months of the year is to provide you with everything you need to create music as soon as you open BeatConnect. Whether you need plugins, a drum machine, synths, samples, or anything else, we have you covered. The BeatConnect team is also creating a comprehensive onboarding process that will take you through our systems and have you creating music right away!

    • ⁠Keep an eye out for new and updated tutorials in the coming weeks!
  • Free Multiplayer Plugins and Sample Library:
    • A subtractive synth with 4 oscillators and a multi-fx module
    • Reverb, EQ, Delay, Chorus, phase and more. Everything you need for bread and butter sound design.
    • Shareable presets for an unlimited selection of sounds! The larger the community gets, the more sounds will be available.

  • BeatConnect Hub Improvements: Our vision for the BeatConnect Hub is ever growing and with that we see it as the central location for communitication, meeting collaborators and getting your project from a drawing board to the recording phase. We aim to start these improvements with our Friends List feature.

The Next Generation of DAWs - Q1 2024

BeatConnect will be introducing the next generation of DAWs! Our Multiplayer DAW flow and design will be rethought from the ground up. To deliver the best experience possible to our users, we are reworking the Multiplayer DAW with solo, partner and community collabs in mind.

Unlocking the Power of Community - Future 2024

The future of BeatConnect lies in the hands of the community. Look forward to public communities, activities such as educational camps, auditions, in-app battles, and incredible integrations with Twitch and Discord.

  • mDAW - Battles integration: One of the most exciting features that we are working on for the future is the integration of our mDAW with Battles.
  • Feedback Features: Feedback is a huge part of music creation. We are working on tools to improve feedback and receive feedback from your community members.
  • Partner Program: Moving into 2024 we are going to look at our Partner Program. You will be able to become a BeatConnect Partner, opening up access to early features, direct contact with the BeatConnect team and possible partnerships around sounds, plugins and more!
  • More Community Features: We are also working on adding more features that will enhance the community aspect of BeatConnect. You will be able to join or create studios based on your interests, genres, skills, etc. Community is at the heart of BeatConnect and we are going to bring these systems to 2.0 in 2024.
  • mDAW Improvements: More to come!
