Demo: Make your own beat


Beat Maker lets you orchestrate sequenced beats using samples from Splice Sounds. The tool became a popular way to learn about music production via a classic user-interface – the step-sequencer. It's also completely free to use, and all you need is a web browser to get started 🤑.

To date, the Beat Maker has been used in classrooms by the not-for-profit Building Beats to empower youth through music. In November of 2018, we worked with Building Beats to launch a sample pack, 'The Fantastic Sounds of Jay Dee' of which all the proceeds were donated to their mission.

As lead product designer at Splice in 2017, I collaborated with a Product Manager and a UX Designer to redesign Splice Desktop. 

We wanted to solve a common user issue – at the time, Splice Desktop was a toolbar app that would hide when focused on another window. Informed by user research, we garnered that producers wanted to see their DAW (digital audio workstation) as well as Splice Desktop in a position of their choosing. We also learned that this made the musician far more likely to use our drag-n-drop feature when using Splice Sounds.

A year later, we introduced a new icon system as part of our rebrand initiative. With this opportunity for a visual refresh we also wanted to pay down some tech debt and implement them via SVG for greater visual control on the front end.

As lead product designer at Splice, I collaborated with key product stakeholders throughout the company to create the Splice DNA Player. The player sits at the heart of the Splice platform.

Whenever a session file is saved, Splice Desktop will automatically back up an instance of the file. This file is then represented throughout the Splice platform through the DNA player.

In the Community, the DNA Player powers remix contests and lets users open-source their session files. In the Studio, the player is used to annotate and communicate during collaboration.

Working as a Designer at Carrot Creative, a social media marketing agency, I had the opportunity to  design for various brands from the auto industry to television and entertainment. In my day-to-day, I created wireframes, visual designs and built HTML + CSS (both for prototyping and production). Having a team of developers was a great resource for me to learn and it was the first time I was using Github actively with a team of engineers.
