Modalics intros Beat Scholar, the new ‘rhythmic pizza plugin’


Perhaps, you already have installed drum machine plugins, but do any of them contain ‘beat pizzas’ and a wheel that can be used to slice up rhythmic pies? Perhaps not.


Modalics has introduced Beat Scholar, a new software drum machine that they describe as “the ultimate rhythmic playground”.


Beat Scholar is academic and slightly intellectual sounding name.


Beat Scholar trend provides a deep-pan programming experience that enables you to slice up your rhythmic pies as you wish. With Beat Scholar you get a step sequencer full of circles (beats), which can be subdivided individually to create interesting rhythmic variations.


In addition, each sound does not have to be on its own lane – you can place any drum on any beat, or any part of a beat. Adding bars and changing measures and beat values can all be done with just a few clicks, giving you huge scope for experimentation.


This unique programming interface is accompanied by a sampler, which comes stocked with more than 250 sounds that cover classic drum machine tones and more esoteric timbres. You can also drag and drop your own samples, tweaking them with a variety of controls and effects.


  • Presents a unique & intuitive way to explore subdivisions, measures & create drum patterns.
  • Divide beats into up to 42 slices and combine multiple drums on the same beat.
  • Any drum can be placed anywhere
  • Over 250 carefully curated samples, from classic drum machines & acoustic samples to synthesized drums hand-crafted especially for Beat Scholar (by Yonatan Meltzer)
  • Load your own samples with an easy drag n’ drop interface.
  • Built-in FX section to get you started quickly.
  • Easy MIDI file export – drag directly from the plugin’s interface to your DAW.
  • Use Beat Scholar to output midi to any instrument or even to hardware drum machines!
  • Standalone, VST3, AU, AAX.
  • Mac Intel & M1 / Windows Compatible.
  • Tested Hosts: Logic, Pro Tools, Cubase, Ableton Live, Reaper

Beat Scholar looks like a lot of fun, and the good news is that there’s a 14-day trial version for you to try. It runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats, and is available now for the introductory price of $79 (regular price $99). Find out more on the Modalics website.
