At the Musikmesse Steinberg introduced "BPM Force", a bundle of music software by Steinberg and Waldorf targeted at dance producers.
"BPM Force" is a combination with Steinberg's sequencer with Waldorf instruments and filters which offers everything dance music producers need to make those crowd move. Cubase SL includes the A1 synth for hammering bass lines. Attack delivers the beats - this percussion synthesizer integrates the analog drum sounds of the 80s and the massive club drums of the 90s in your VST System. PPG Wave 2.V, the second coming of a synth legend as a VST instrument, offers everything from luscious synth pads to manic techno sounds. Last but not least is D- Pole, with its 5 filter types that can morph any run-of-the- mill acoustic drum loop into a heavy-duty dance groove.
Steinberg "BPM Force" is available from March for PC and Mac OS X/9 at EUR 499.00 (price subject to regional variations).
