UJAM has announced VOID, which they describe as a Drum & Bass-centric new member of its Beatmaker series. Here’s the story in their own words…
With VOID, the Beatmaker series expands to musical genres that are based on breakbeats and heavy syncopation such as liquid, jungle and neurofunk. VOID provides the tools to create custom beat arrangements without the need for samplers, sequencers or beat slicing.
The Beatmaker series has three more titles: DOPE for classic Hip Hop inspired by the 1990s, EDEN covering electronic dance music styles, and HUSTLE for contemporary urban genres like Trap. Patterns, fills and breakdowns for Beatmaker are created by renowned specialist sound designers for each genre.
Beatmaker VOID is immediately available in VST, AU, AAX plug-in formats for both macOS and Windows.

UJAM’s Jannik Hainke says “With VOID we’re adding yet another important colour to our palette of Beatmakers for all popular electronic music genres. For a while we’ve been eager to fill the – pun intended – void of broken beats and syncopation in our offerings. Especially because we have both colleagues and engaged customers that are connaisseurs and specialists. So VOID was made with a lot of attention to detail and also lots of fun. If you’re a professional music producer, you will appreciate how VOID speeds up the production process while always maintaining impeccable sound quality. If you’re a bedroom producer, you will enjoy how simple and fun it is to produce pro-level drum tracks. We can’t wait to hear what you will make of it!”
