The Beat Thang by BKE Technology is a portable music production studio designed to meet the needs of today's electronic music producers. It's ideal for genres such as hip-hop, dance, pop, dubstep, industrial and more. At the heart of the Beat Thang is a 16-track sequencer with a studio-quality 24 - 16bit/44.1kHz sampler and is packed with over 3000 original, radio-ready sounds. In addition to hundreds of drums tailored for top 40 production, it also includes live basses, strings, horns, keys, synths, effects and exotic world instruments like tablas, sitars, kotos, djembes and more.

The Beat Thang throws away everything you know about how a drum machine and sampler should work with its intuitive, user-friendly design, one-octave pad layout and easy-to-read 3.5" color display. What's more, all buttons completely illuminate so you can see what you're doing in dimly lit studios or dark performance venues. The Beat Thang also comes packed with onboard effects including filters, delays, reverb, chorus and more.

Record and edit your own samples via the stereo 1/4"/XLR input and save them directly to the Beat Thang's internal memory. If more storage is needed, this Thang comes equipped with dual SD slots and a USB connector for external hard-drive or flash-drive storage. As is if that wasn't enough, you can use the hardware as a controller for Beat Thang Virtual or take it with you and bang out some beats in the street with the built-in, rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
