2009 Winter NAMM Show: First up, let me state a pet peave: it should be against the law for software makers to advertise their software with awesome 3D models.
All the ads for MOTU BPM make it look like it’s an killer piece of hardware, not a virtual instrument. This seems to be a favorite trick for companies trying to make a virtual instrument look more awesome than it really is.
Other than that, it looks like BPM will be an interesting new app.
Here’s the official description for BPM:
BPM unites drum machine-style operation with advanced virtual instrument technology to give you the ultimate rhythm programming experience. Combine drum kits, sequenced patterns, sliced loops and instrument sounds to realize your rhythmic vision, mixing and matching any playing style with any drum kit. Or plug in your pad controller or MIDI keyboard to capture your live, groove-quantized performance directly in BPM.
