Summarised by the developers as a 'Tonal and Percussive Open Surface New Generation Virtual Instrument', Beatstation represents a completely new direction for Toontrack.

It is their first foray into tonal sampling and gives the user a complete workstation for creating and editing not just drums, but any kind of instrument.

Andreas Sundgren from Toontrack tells us "Although it is firmly planted in the Toontrack legacy of designing the best percussive virtual instruments Beatstation marks a departure."

Beatstation, "introduc[es] melodic instruments, REX support, and recording capabilities making it the ultimate open surface sampler for sound designers, producers, musicians and songwriters alike."

Beatstation allows the user to design sound sets by dragging and dropping Wav, REX, MP3 and Toontrack library sounds on to the pads of Beatstation.

Using the Beatstation browser or from the users computer harddrive users can get creative mixing and matching any sounds available to build brand new personalized sound sets.
