Beat 707 with Propellerhead Reason Device Kong

July 19, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Beat707 is an Arduino Shield that adds several neat features to your musical arsenal. You get a 32 step machine, (plus 32 double-steps for a total of 64 steps) with 16 step buttons and leds, LCD screen and navigation keys. It’s like the classic Roland TR707 but with some twists, as it actually has 64 x 1/32 or 32 x 1/64 steps. Plus, the 2 note-step sequence feature allows you to do bass and/or synth grooves — it’s a MIDI groove-box all in one ! The unit doesn’t produce any sound, it’s all MIDI based, so you can use any MIDI compatible device.

  • 14 Drum Tracks + 2 Accent Tracks (a total of 3 MIDI-note velocities can be sent from each step)
  • 2 Step-Sequence Tracks (each step has its own Note selection, Velocity is set by the accent tracks)
  • Multi Pattern and Song Mode
  • Number of Patterns and Songs depends on the total amount of system EEPROM — the base system provision of 32kbytes of EEPROM ┬áhas enough for 90 patterns and 99 songs positions. The included Flash Nand memory can hold up to 42 songs. (see more below)
  • Each pattern has 32 x 1/32 or 32 x 1/64 steps and 14 tracks + 2 accent tracks (V1.2.0 has 64 steps total per pattern)
  • Each track has a note-number and MIDI-channel number, so you can also use tracks to output regular notes (one note fixed per track)
  • Optional MIDI echo (set during compilation and uploading of the Sketch)
  • File Mode for storing up to 20 songs into the internal Flash. With options to Load, Save, Dump to SySex MIDI and Erase
  • Special Mirror Pattern Editing – allows you to edit a 64 step pattern in a much easier way
