No Man’s Sky Update Adds Full Audio Creation Tools

No Man’s Sky

is giving players the gift of music this holiday season with a surprise update that adds a full music creation tool into the game. The free update will allow No Man’s Sky players to create custom beats they can play in their base.In the No Man’s Sky 2.24 update, Hello Games added a new tool called the ByteBeat Device. It’s a full-on audio creation tool that can generate beats to play on your base. By default, the tool will procedurally generate random presets, but seasons musicians can venture into the advance setting and manually program the beats themselves.Hello Games released a full blog post about the ByteBeat, but it sounds fairly comprehensive. Players can modify melodies and drums, fill in notes automatically with the arpeggiator, and adjust octave, key, and tempo.

The ByteBeat can also be synchronized with other ByteBeats, or connected to other devices to layer multiple tracks for more complex arrangements. The ByteBeat can also power lights that can be synched up to the rhythm of your music. You can also share your custom beats with other players.
