You can use the following keyboard shortcuts while composing a track.


Press to start or stop playback.

commandcontrol key

Hold down the commandcontrol key while drawing notes to create "loud" notes.

optionalt key

Hold down the optionalt key while drawing notes to create "soft" notes.


Hold down the shift key to select a region of notes. You will then be able to copy and paste or clear that region.


Playback starting point

By default, playback always starts from the beginning of a track. This can be difficult if you want to focus your attention on a piece in the middle, or near the end.

You can change where playback begins by setting the playback start marker. You can do this by clicking white area just above the grid. A blue arrow icon will be placed where you click. Playback will now start from this point.

Clicking on the arrow icon again will remove it.

Column volume

There is a speaker icon to the left of each row on the grid.

Click this icon once and you can control the volume of that row.

Double click this icon and you can mute or unmute the row.

Solution to Flash

Hi guys, Administrator, Jon or moderators. Can someone tells Jon the site do not supporting flash for a lot of BeatLab lovers.

Even with all manipulations and permissions changes, no plugins can be charged.

Thats the end for Flash Player, yes, but i hope that will not put down the best site in music creation.

Seriously, i never saw that kind of community elsewhere. We got the best music creators/mixers/dj's of the game...And we have to see the sinking of that boat loaded of talents.

...No way!

Jon, why we dont sit at the table to find a solution?

If thats a money problem, i can be one of the solution.

The site was hacked by the past, we know but thats not a reason to give-up.

What's the real problem?

Like i said, i can be one piece of the puzzle if you need.
