It’s been a while since we heard anything from the Beat Kangz, creators of Beat Thang Virtual – a sort of virtual MPC.

They’ve announced Beat Thang Virtual Preset Expander Pack Vol. 1-4, a collection of expansion packs.

Here’s what they have to say about the Expanders:

There are many samples in the BTV factory ROM that were not used in preset kits or instruments. So, unless you are willing to dive in and spend time building new kits, then you may not be making use of all of BTV’s potential. The Factory Preset Expander makes it easy for you.

Beat Kangz went back to the lab and spent hours creating new kits and instruments that make more of these sounds instantly accessible. Now you can quickly and easily unlock the potential of your Beat Thang Virtual! These new expansions tap further into the power packed sound designs of the Beat Kangz by giving you all new kits and Instruments to build with, and saving you hours of design time. Plus you get the added benefit of having the Beat Kangz as your sound designers.

The expansion packs are $9.99 each at their site.
