The Beat Kangz Interview

From Sound Designers To Gear Designers      24/08/09

Buying Choices

Zro Hour's interview with the Beat Kangz starts off a little slow, but ends up touching on how the Kangz made the jump from sound designers to creating a new type of drum machine. It also offers a preview of the Beat Thang platform:

When beatboxer Chesney Snow told me about a drum machine he was working on (Chesney provided human beat box sounds for the drum machine) with Tennessee production crew THE BEAT KANGZ, I combed the net for more info as I picked their brain. I had posted a couple of articles on THE BEAT THANG- synthesizer, sampler, sequencer- and connected with their publicist for the interview above. It was suggested that we do it through Skype, which was a great idea. It was my first time using Skype and though I had a bit of technical difficulties during set up, I was able to record our great conversation about THE BEAT THANG, the desktop version THE BEAT THANG VIRTUAL and the iphone app THE PLAYA THANG!

See our earlier posts on the Beat Thang, listed below, for more info and demo videos.
