Find Out Which Instrument to Use

Level: Pro

Choosing which instrument to play used to be a lifelong choice. Thanks to MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) or a protocol that allows computers and electronic instruments to communicate with each other, instruments are now at your fingertips. That means you can choose whatever instrument to play whenever you want and even combine different instruments in one song to create unique sounds no one else has.

Here are just some ideas.

Instrument Sampler


From thunderous organ sounds to sun-kissed guitar tunes or full-on Star Wars-style orchestra, our instrument samplers let you pick any acoustic or electronic instrument to play.

SAM-1

GM-2

Drum Machine


DrumMachine is big among rappers. Take note from Lil Nas X’s viral hit and notice the drums and bass that come in at 00.28. Those are trap-style beats made from an iconic TR-808 you can also achieve with our drum machines.
