This was given to me as a gift. I am a real musician/producer with a full-blown studio in his home.

I cannot believe how this company is suckering everyone into purchasing this product. I have watched the videos online and read their advertisements and I cannot fault the gift-giver in any way, since they are not musically inclined and did not know what to watch out for. This is absolutely the company's wrong doing.

First, I would like to say that I have a $3.00 magnet on my fridge that does the same thing. It is a little plastic violin that has two metal wires for strings, then a metal wire strung on a plastic bow. One shorts the two violin wires with the bow wire and a note is played. Then, one lifts the bow up and it stops. Touch the bow to the "strings" again and the NEXT note is played. It's a very simple ON/OFF control and the "songs" are pre-programmed inside the violin, so that each subsequent note that is played is one from a classical song. Voila! Instant long-hair composer.

The lasers on this device are either reaching the sensors or not. This is also a very simple ON/OFF controller. It just happens to have four, instead of one. So, as one breaks a beam, the NEXT [pre-programmed] note is played. The only magic to this sounding good is that they have kept all of the sampled instrument notes in the keys of the "song" one has loaded to play. There is no control over pitch, velocity, etc. There is just ON and OFF. The pitches automatically go up then down in the scale.

OK, fine, I told myself. I am going to try to have fun with this thing, anyway, even if it is just a simple ON/OFF controller. I hate telling people that something they gave me was for suckers.

When we saw this playing at FAO Swartz, we thought it was the coolest gift ever. We recently purchased this and it turned into a fiasco.
First of all, it does not work with MAC's so we had to spend another $125.00 to download a windows program onto our computer. Then it took three tech support calls, including one made by our computer expert, to finally get this up and running. If you don't have a MAC, it may have been simpler to get up and running. Then again, the instructions to use the Beamz are not very clear either. I suppose if you are extremely technically skilled, it might be easier. But given the fact that our computer person had difficulties with it, I doubt it is child friendly. Fun when working.
I was also unaware that you can't move it away from the computer. Really think about this one for the money.

I have to agree with the other 1 star review - this is not a gift for professional musicians. I received this for Christmas, and my father was so excited about it. He thought he'd hit a home run with this gift. And, at first, I thought it looked kinda interesting - somewhat like a theremin type instrument. If that's what it had been, I would have liked it, but with this "interactive music system" you have very little control over what music actually comes out. You can't control what pitch it plays at all, and you have only limited control over the rhythm. You can only use four instruments at a time. The game is simplistic, and not at all fun, not to mention the fact that the songs you are supposedly playing sound very little like the actual tunes. The description of this item claims it can be used to compose - and I suppose it can, at a level appropriate for little children and people with absolutely no musical training whatsoever. If they do have any training at all, they will just be bored with what this thing can do. Luckily, I was able to exchange mine (it was bought from Brookstone) and got a really nice foot massager instead - something I will actually use!

Verified Purchase
I've read a few critical reviews from musicians who clearly expected a musical instrument, which is not what the Beamz is claimed to be be. We used the first-generation version a number of times as an interactive crowd-puller, and it works like a dream. I bought the new version (okay, it's now a few years old) on a recent visit to the U.S. and fully intend to use it in the same way. It has four beams rather than the original six, which is fine by me. The only (teensy) criticism relates to the beam angle: whereas the first version's laser beams ran near-as-dammit horizontally, this one's beams are quite steeply angled, so you'll need a little practice. It's not a deal-breaker, though. I remain happy with my purchase.

This product is not compatible with MAC computers, which is what my son has so he was unable to use it, therefore, we returned it.

I only own one piece of equipment for producing, a little old MP3 turntable set (With a crossfader) that I use once every two months to mess around with when I'm bored. EVEN THAT IS MORE PROFESSIONAL THAN THIS SPIT IN THE FACE TO REAL PRODUCERS! It's good for "family fun time" sort of crap, but I'd never EVER preform live with this TO A GROUP OF 1st GRADERS! My only question is... why? Wait, I know, Flo needed more cash. Yep, that's it.
If the future generation thinks this is "producing" god help us all!
