Rockstar unveils Beaterator

New music mixer for PSP.

Rockstar has teamed up with hip-hop big-shot Timbaland to bring Beaterator to PSP this summer.

It was originally created back in 2005 as a web-based music mixing program to help you hone your skills, or quickly mock up an idea out of studio. With a large bank of stock sounds, multiple usable effects, eight sequencing tracks, a two-octave keyboard and "loop crafter", it quickly made a mark as a handy and powerful little tool.

All of that magic will be squeezed into the handheld version, along with rhythm games, challenge modes, as well as original music and built-in sound kit from Timbaland himself.

"I've always been a huge fan of Rockstar and love playing their games," said Timbaland. "I'm thrilled to be partnering with them and making music for Beaterator. I cannot wait to get this in the hands of our fans!"

Bebop your way over to the Beaterator website to find out more and have a bash at the web-based dream machine.
