Can I add my own patterns ?

If you know what XML is, then you can extend the Beat Machine. The process is quite simple:

  1. Obtain a machine XML file. You can either save a machine, then download its XML file, or simply download the Default Beat Machine.
  2. Edit the XML file in your favorite text editor. The file format is pretty straightfoward, and there are many parameters for you to play with.
  3. In the Beat Machine window, right-click anywhere within the "General" window (for example, you can right-click on the Speaker Icon). Then choose "Load machine from XML..." and select your XML file.
  4. When you are happy with your new machine, you can save it and share the link with others.
