PecoBeat is a drum computer or drum sequencer, a program with that you can create beat compositions based on patterns.
PecoBeat will be very easy to use (because of it's specialization), it supports drag&drop throughout the program, live editing
while playing and pleases with a nice user interface (in my opinion).
PecoBeat is based on MIDI and uses (in the beginning) the internal MIDI synthesizer of the BeOS. Since it is designed for
the MidiKit 2, there will later come an extended version for external MIDI instruments (even for devices which don't
support the GM standard).
It will be connected to the internal MIDI-Synthesizer via InternalMIDI,
which I have written not at last for that purpose.

At the moment it’s not very likely that I will update PecoBeat very soon. On the one hand the feedback was simply to few. On the other side I want to wait and see, how the future will look for the OpenBeOS (however it will be called!).
