(LONDON, UK – NOVEMBER 2, 2023) — Beatport, the global leader in music for DJs, producers, and their fans, today announced Beatport Studio, a production membership that consolidates the creative ingenuity of The Beatport Group’s producer ecosystem. Merging a diverse array of creative instruments and effects from the Plugin Boutique catalog, the extensive sample libraries from Loopmasters, and the user-friendly workflow of Loopcloud, Beatport Studio represents a pivotal leap forward in the realm of music production.
Structured around a flexible and cost-effective model, Beatport Studio encompasses all the essentials for producers to establish, expand, and refine their production style. With an ever-expanding portfolio of plugins, members have the freedom to make selections and rotate their choices every 30 days, facilitating experimentation and the discovery of tools that resonate with their creative vision. Beatport’s own research of its global community of DJs has shown that more than 60% of DJs are also producers, resulting in a massive potential addressable market for the Beatport Studio product.
“Beatport Studio marks a significant milestone in our commitment to empowering music producers worldwide,” said Robb McDaniels, CEO of The Beatport Group. “We’ve harnessed the collective creative strength of Beatport’s Producer Group to deliver an integrated production marketplace that reflects our dedication to innovation and flexibility to ensure our users are at the forefront of shaping the sonic landscape.”
Boasting an impressive lineup of plugins from established industry titans such as Baby Audio, UJAM, and Applied Acoustic Systems, as well as emerging innovators like Lunacy Audio, Klevgrand, and Excite Audio, Beatport Studio places an emphasis on creative instruments, ensuring that users play a pivotal role in shaping the future of sound. For users switching plugins during an ongoing project, ‘Frozen State’ technology allows rotated plugins to continue to function seamlessly within a project. Beatport Studio’s membership is tailored to encourage experimentation and artistic expression without imposing limitations.
Gareth Halsall, VP of Beatport’s Producer Group commented:
“It’s an exciting time for music producers. We’re proud to bring a new dimension to the industry by combining flexibility and choice, ultimately enriching the creative experience for our users. Beatport Studio is more than a membership; it’s a gateway to a vast world of sound, right at your fingertips.”
Beatport Studio members gain access to hundreds of thousands of meticulously curated sounds via the Loopcloud Sounds plugin. Browsing takes place directly within one’s digital audio workstation (DAW), streamlining the process of sample discovery, empowering users to channel their energy into creative endeavors. Loopcloud’s expansive library of royalty-free samples has been carefully crafted and recorded by some of the world’s most innovative sound designers, artists, and vocalists. The curators continue to expand the collection daily, encompassing a wide spectrum of genres and styles.
