The MOTU BPM is a production software that comes loaded with 19GB of sounds, a whole bunch of effects and you can sample right in the software. You can run it on your PC or your Mac, if you are using it on a PC you need to have XP, Vista, or Windows 7 either 32 or 64 bit. If you are on a Mac you need to have OSX 10.4.11 or higher and a G4 or better with 1GB of RAM.


If you use MOTU BPM with ASIO drivers you will have very good playback and glitch free low latency usage. But without ASIO drivers depending on what you system specs are you could experience some issues with latency and glitch like behavior during playback. Though it is very easy to install, the program is much bigger than expected and it can eat up your CPU quickly. Especially when you get into processing all of the effects, you will almost have to be using an ASIO driver in order for it to play smoothly.


One of the worth the money features , are that you have an unlimited FX slots per rack, so you can just start stacking those effects up on top of each other and get some really cool sounds, but like I said if your drivers are not under control you will not be stacking too many effects together before you start to experience choppy playback.

This software is good, and it comes at a decent price. I just did not have a need for it so I never used it after the first few initial times. It does come loaded with a lot of synth, bass, and drum sounds. It is also ready to go right out of the box. No hard set ups or anything like that, the manual that comes with it is pretty thin, but it helps you a lot if you need it.
