We know about music!

BeatMode.com is one of the oldest information websites for musicians originating in 2000 in Sherman Oaks, California by Mike Liebner. We have a deep historical section with tons of older product news, reviews and free loops to download. We have recently updated our look and are increasing our efforts to cover as much of the cutting edge music news possible.

We love free stuff!

We always try to find and post news about the best freebies for musicians! 

We always try to find the best freebies for musicians and provide the latest news, information and links to free VST Instruments, free loops and demo software for making music on your computer.

While we really like downloading free music making tools, we don’t mind buying the best new commercial products if they’re really good!

Our main thing is Instrument Plugins and Effects and Samples

We’re always on the lookout for new digital instrument and effects plugins (VST/AU/ProTools etc.) for Windows and Macs. We’re also always checking out new sound libraries for new loops, samples and musical instrument presets.

We usually do our own music creation and sound design on Windows Computers and IOS phones and tablets ourselves (iphone and ipad), but also feature news and info on all the formats and operating systems (windows/mac /software/hardware/ios/android etc.).

We do our best to include news about them all when the products are good.

When possible we even do reviews (both mini and in-depth) and often even create and post our own videos when possible about the stuff we really dig!
