Beat Lab - Experiment With Beats and Sounds

Beat Lab is a free service through which you can experiment with thousands of sound and rhythm combinations. Using Beat Lab is easy. Beat Lab provides a grid on which you select the sounds you want to have played. You can specify how often you want each sound played and how quickly you want the sounds played. There are twelve default sounds provided in the Beat Lab grid. You can add more sounds by selecting "add more sounds" and choosing from the huge catalog of sounds. If the sound you want isn't available in the Beat Lab catalog, you can upload your own sounds.

Applications for Education
Beat Lab could be a good place for new music students to experiment with sounds and rhythms. With Beat Lab even students who can't play an instrument can experience how rhythms and blends of sounds create music.
