128 independently controllable slots for recording/playing/manipulating MIDI sequences. Draw in notes, record live, or import existing MIDI files.

Can be used as:

  • MIDI looper/sampler - "extra hands" for live playing. Plays back what you play, whenever you want it to.
  • MIDI file player, in sync with the host (or not). Seamlessly switch between patterns.
  • Composition tool - fit any sequence to any chord progression, on the fly.
  • All of the above, simultaneously.


  • Annoying "DEMO VERSION" text when not licensed (no other demo limitations).
  • Optionally delay playback until start of next bar.
  • 128 slots, but for now only first 16 show on GUI.
  • (Sucky) Piano roll editor with settable loop area, time signatures, etc.
  • Pattern chaining: play a specified number of times, then switch to another loop.
  • Can play multiple loops at once (ctrl-click for multiple, right-click to play one exclusively).
  • Can record live MIDI and optionally start looping it as soon as you stop recording.
  • Load MIDI files by drag & drop.
  • Optionally syncs to host timeline (position within a measure is kept).
  • Loops whole numbers of bars/beats/8th/16th notes, or arbitrary lengths.
  • When recording, rounds down the loop size if it's close (instead of bumping up to next step).
  • Optional input quantize.
  • Can apply a velocity scale and transposition (by semitones and octaves) to the loop in real time.
  • Adjustable start and end points for loop playback.
  • "Beat shift" time offset with wraparound.
  • Selectable MIDI channel (input filter, output filter or transformer).
  • Records and plays back all MIDI events it receives, so it's up to you to filter what you don't want.
  • Optionally overdub to add data to an existing loop (needs work).
  • Supports program change.
  • Plays in a synchronized/unsynchronized loop, or unsynchronized one-shot.
  • Trigger loop from MIDI notes (mono/polyphonic, with optional transposition), or automate the play parameters.
  • Play/mute groups.
  • Force to freely definable scale, and transpose within the scale, optionally based on MIDI input.
  • Writes an editable MIDI file when saving plugin state (or by save button/parameter), and loads it again at any time.
  • Windows only (Mac version is currently outdated).

This guy is a genious!!! I urge everyone to try this one out!

Try a scale with notes that you like (click the little keyboard in the middle) and make a melody. Then check force to scale and transpose one semitone at a time. Amazing!

Beatshift! Maschine is the only sequencer i know of having this and it saves so much times and lowers the barrier for creativity!

probably a great plugin, but i couldn't get it to do anything in energyXT! my criteria is this: if i can't get any sound or function out of a software in 10 minutes of exploration....it gets deleted ! sorry..

I have checked the plugin on 2 different machines and the result is the same, recording is completely erratic, the timing and length of notes is irregular and bears no resemblance to what I have played. I suppose that those who praise it must be using prerecorded MIDI files which they simply trigger. This piece of software had such potential, though, it is a shame it was discontinued.
