Digital Mixer

B.BEAT Includes a digital mixer to manage 24 tracks on 16 separate outputs, 12 inputs, a Headphone output for Click*, return from Mixer and Backing tracks. With the 16 outputs, the tracks that make up the Backing Tracks can be sent to the Stage Mixer. A Stereo or Mono audio signal can return to B.Beat from any source via the 12 available inputs, and B.Beat also recognizes the Click track and can route it to any of the 16 available outputs and simultaneously to the Headphone output*. When activating the headphone output with 4 handy potentiometers, the musician can balance in real time what he wants to hear on headphones during the performance.
*when activated, the headphone output uses two audio channels, so the available outputs become 14.

Sound Card

In addition, B.Beat PRO16 includes a real Sound Card 16 out and 12 IN, compatible with Windows and iOs. Thanks to the card you can use, together with B.Beat, a digitally connected pc channeling the outputs of the various tracks of B.Beat exactly as in the Daw. This function is very useful during Sound Check and in the rehearsal room, before transferring the Backing Tracks directly to B.Beat.

Digital recorder

B.Beat PRO16 is also a 12-channel Digital recorder. Recorded tracks, up to 12, can be automatically inserted into Audio projects. In the PLUS version, recording can also take place while B.Beat PRO16 is playing a backing track. After recording is complete, you can decide whether to insert the new tracks into the pre-existing backing track.

B.Beat on stage

B.Beat is designed to have maximum reliability during LIVE performances. There is a special button on the [LIVE] panel that can be used the moment the Show starts because from that moment on, B.Beat’s processor will be committed to maximum performance without wasting resources. This minimizes the risk of unintentional crashes, and preserves the user from operating errors.
B.Beat PRO16 has a Synch system to use it in conjunction with Auto Switch systems that prevent stopping in case of a crash.

Two video outputs

B.Beat PRO16 has two HDMI video outputs, this is because on stage there is often the need to have a Video Wall supporting musical performances, and at the same time the display of Lyrics in the Prompter version. Song lyrics can be written and synchronized very easily through the B.Beat Manager program. The same can be done with the Sheet Music, which can be uploaded as PDFs and for each instrument on the stage you can have a dedicated music sheet. The sheet music can be viewed on Smart Devices via Wi Fi.

Organizing performance

B.Beat PRO16 manages individual Backing Tracks that can be organized into convenient Playlists, or into actual Shows consisting of multiple Scenes of different types. Projects can contain Music, Videos and Images but also MIDI tracks to send messages to the various devices that are used for Live performance. The philosophy behind B.Beat is to simplify the management of Backing tracks and Videos during a Show. With B.Beat there is no need to bring Computers, Tablets, Sound and Video Cards, Cables, Mixers to the stage.

Getting B.Beat ready for the Show

Create your Backing Tracks using your Daw, and once you have finished your studio work you are ready to transfer your music to B.Beat PRO16. To do this, included is the B.Beat manager software that runs on Windows PCs and Macs. With the Manager you will assign outputs to the various tracks, and you can complete the editing by adjusting volumes as desired. If you have synchronized the videos to the music you can upload everything to B.Beat.

Metronome and Click

B.Beat has a specific Metronome session. You can very easily manage a metronome directly on stage. The audio Click of the metronome can come out on one of the 16 outputs, and at the same time to the headphone output, if it has been set. The same thing happens with the Click when it is recorded on the Backing Tracks. When the Click track is present in the multitrack Backing Tracks it is recognized and sent to a separate output and to the headphones.

Song Service website

B.Beat can read MTA (multitrack Audio) format files produced and distributed by M-Live from the Song Service website. MTA Files are multitrack files that B.Beat reads at 8 stereo tracks. The Backing Tracks are organized as follows: Track 1 Drums, Track 2 Bass, Track 3 Guitar, Track 4 Keyboards, Track 5 Orchestra, Track 6 Wind Instruments, Track 7 Click, Track 8 Melody. Audio projects with 16 separate stereo tracks are also available, which can be freely adapted to B.Beat with any DAW.
