Captain Beat by Mixed In Key

Mixed In Key releases Captain Beat, the latest update to the award-winning Captain Plugins series. Captain Beat allows you to make beats quickly and intuitively. Choose from one of hundreds of patterns from the bank library or record your own rhythms by finger drumming using the computer keyboard. Select a drum kit from Captain Beat’s sizable kit collection, or load in your own samples. Sculpt your sounds using Captain Beat’s Controls and Effects and finish by exporting the Audio or MIDI to your DAW. Captain Beat allows you to easily mix and match patterns from different genres to create original percussive patterns and is sure to become a ‘go-to’ plugin for producers.

Built for Beat Makers

Captain Plugins is the fastest way to make a beat. This product was inspired by how iconic producers work – they reference and borrow elements from different genres to create new genres of music.“says Yakov Vorobyev, CEO of Mixed In Key and continues “We made this plugin so you can quickly browse through rhythms from all over the world, and apply your own samples to those rhythms. It helps you combine ideas that don’t normally go together – like trap hi-hats playing at 125 BPM, and it sounds epic. You could invent a new music genre with this plugin’s beat making capabilities.

Captain Beat Features


Choose from one of the hundreds of drum MIDI patterns to create a beat. There are patterns from every genre and bpm, ranging from 67 BPM to 124 BPM.

Drum Kits

Make beats with one of our custom drum kits. Captain Beat has kits ranging from trap to hip hop and house, to Latin, drum and bass, pop and R’n’B.


Record your own rhythms using your computer keyboard or MIDI controller. This is a great feature for producers who like to finger drum. Each type of drum sample is automatically mapped to your computer keyboard; the letter each sample is mapped to is clearly marked in the plugin using Hotkeys.

Drum Roll

The Drum Roll is a vertical stack of drums that include Kick, Snare, Closed Hat, Open Hat, Shaker, Acoustic Snare, Toms, Crash Cymbal, Ride Cymbal, Tambourines, and Claves. Each type of drum allows you to use one of Captain Beat’s custom drum sets, swap in one of your own samples and easily select a different rhythm. Mix and match samples from different types of drum kits and rhythms to create original percussive patterns.


The bank section includes percussive patterns from Mixed In Key and featured artists. These patterns span a wide range of genres including dub, dancehall, hip hop, house, pop, reggaeton, techno, trap and more.


Export the Channel Audio, Channel MIDI, Master Audio or Master MIDI to MIDI or Audio tracks in your DAW. This flexible range of features gives you control over what you export. To mix and process drums individually, export the Channel MIDI or Channel Audio. To export the drums as a group, export the Master MIDI or Master Audio. These additional export options give you more control over mixing your rhythms.
