We teach our classes with an entertaining curriculum style using technology to engage our students, and then we transfer those principles over to our designs and development process for music software and games. Prototyping, developing and implementing software and games in the classroom helps students create, learn and explore in fun, fast paced environments. Using modern music production techniques and concepts, we make learning about music as fun as playing a game for all ages and demographics - we make music happen by turning listeners into (beat) makers.
SLICR: Beat Slicing Production tool for iOS
Slicr is a beat making tool developed by professional beat-makers, developers, music production teachers from SAE Institute/Ex'pression College and inspired by our students at Beatshop Labs. Slicr lets musicians pro and amateur slice sounds and loops with a few taps. In seconds, players can begin jamming to their favorite songs, create new songs through remixing, or load in their own sample libraries and start from scratch. Electronic producer & DJ, MR.CARMACK has teamed up with Beatshop Labs to bring fans an exclusive look into how he makes music and his sound collection.
