The Kangz have stuffed over 3000 sounds and hundreds of production-ready beats, patterns and loops into THE BEAT THANG.
THE BEAT THANG truly moves beat making deep into the stratosphere with real bass, live strings, striking synths, Latin and African percussion, crunchy electric guitar, and startling sound effects. Each sound can be edited, tuned and manipulated using the 3.5 inch color video LCD screen, and fully functioning Digital EFX (EQ, Compression, Reverb, Delay, Filter, Chopped, Screwed, Reverse Record, tons more).
As if that weren’t enough, THE BEAT THANG offers onboard SAMPLING and resampling with easy key grouping, pad layering, and multi edit of all parameters in a kit or patch. 256 MB Ram (Standard) TWO High Speed SD card slots holding up to 32 gigs, MIDI Sequencer, USB in and out allow you to add your sound library, samples and midi files to create your own customized mobile sound experience. Oh, and those sounds you are packing have NO LOAD TIMES. Meaning no more waiting for minutes on end for your inspiration. Just keep it moving.
And speaking of moving, yes, the Beat Thang is a mobile player. The rechargeable lithium ion battery (like the one in your laptop) gives you hours of portable playing time. The Thang moves effortlessly from the studio, to the stage, to the streets with tons of features for recording, live performance and DJing. It’s light enough to carry in one hand. Loaded with functionality and flexibility, THE BEAT THANG boasts and rightfully so. A stunning combination of features, quality and style make it unlike any product in the music technology universe today.
