Devlog: BeatCleaver 1.4 Progress and New Edits

About two weeks ago, I posted my first devlog video on BeatCleaver 1.4 to help get feedback on the new “Edit Mode” I’m working on, and since then I’ve made some progress. That first video garnered a bunch of great feedback that helped me steer what I’m working on (which was just what I was hoping for), so I’m going to continue blogging my progress whenever I have something cool to show.

In this new video, I quickly demonstrate how slice points now work in Edit Mode, show how you can use two new types of “edit” to manipulate beats, and lastly, I talk about your feedback on the last video and some of the features that you suggested:

Ok, back to C++ for me!

  1. I was wondering if there is a “reset” option once you are compete with an export? When digging into the wave form for the most accurate slice, I sometimes get lost trying to get back to the entire sample/song that I’m slicing. I use an MPC for my production and can’t get that to reset but working with Beat Cleaver has been a complete relief as I have been abel to move from my MPC to BC and make edits while relaxing… pretty much doing pre-production work before going back to my MP.

    • Hey Gary,

      Currently, there’s no reset option beyond the “Clear Slicing” button and resetting the BPM. (There’ll be a button for the latter in BeatCleaver 1.4. Maybe that helps a bit?)

      Did you mean just like zooming out to the original full song, or finding the original sample on your computer again after chopping?

      I think I see what you mean though. It’d be really nice to be able to find your source material again after you’ve made a couple of chops from it, without having to dig around on your computer again.


      • Thanks for the response Albert,

        My thinking was at the point of the inth-degree of the wave form from a full song you click a “reset” and the zoom snaps the red and blue markers back to the entire wave, or to have it snap back to JUST what is between the red and blue markers… If that makes any cense?

        • I think that makes total sense, Gary. I’m writing this one down and I’ll see what I can do! I’ve been thinking about putting some zoom in/out buttons at the bottom, and a reset button would fit in there perfectly.
