Get U-He Beatzille For Free! (OFFER EXPIRED)


Beat Magazine has announced that all users of their free BeatFirst app for Android and iOS can download the excellent U-He Beatzille virtual modular synthesizer for free until December 19th!

Beatzille is a lighter (in terms of available features), but still totally awesome version of the Bazille synthesizer by U-He. Compared to the full version of the plugin, Beatzille features less oscillators (two instead of four), less filters, LFOs and envelope generators (one of each), less effects (only the delay effect is included), reduced polyphony and the lack of multi-core CPU support. On the other hand, it is still an incredibly versatile virtual instrument with a great sounding filter, excellent oscillators, and all the modular patching fun you could ask for! The synth is compatible all VST/AU/AAX plugin hosts (both 32-bit and 64-bit) on Windows, Mac OS and even Linux!

Beatzille is normally distributed on the cover DVD of Beat Magazine, which means that you need to purchase an issue in order to get the free plugin. For the next three days, everyone can download the plugin for free, so long as they also install the free BeatFirst app on their Android or iOS device and register for a free Studiodrive user account.

Here’s how to grab your free copy of Beatzille:

  1. Install the BeatFirst app to your Android or iOS device (pictured below).
  2. Launch the app and go into settings (upper-right corner of the screen).
  3. Register a Studiodrive user account (you can set the language to English in the registration form).
  4. Confirm your email address.
  5. Return to the first screen in BeatFirst and click the image on top (it has 72h Beatzille written on it).
  6. Check your email, download and install the plugin.
  7. Feed your pet(s) and fire up your DAW.
  8. You’re all set! :)

      • Total disapointment man! There is no big OK button!!!
        I try to do all the steps with iPhone 5s and nothing!!!
        I repeat so many times the steps and still nothing.
        From the app to the web and from the web to the app, there still no OK button!!!
        Big, big, big disapointment!
        I have to quit now, because i’m afraid that i’m gonna broke my phone, because of your stupit promotion that is not useful.
        Big thanks guys! :(

          What happens when you press the image on the top of the home screen? Also, did you check the spam folder in your mail account?

  1. Well it doesn’t work for me. What ever I use as a user name I always get an error trying to log in.

    • I had the same problem when my password had special symbols like “:” so I logged in through a web browser and changed the password so it only consisted of letter and numbers and it worked. :)

    • Tomislav Zlatic


      Sorry, I double checked with the developer and there is no Windows Phone version, nor is it planned.

  2. Irion Da Ronin


    The app sucks big time, after many reboots on my phone, i had to use my gf one, then i saw “undefined” all over the web. I couldn’t login at first, and now when i press the Bazille image, i just get a dialog that says just “OK”.


    I will try a few times more, i want that synth.

    As usual, thanks for the heads-up, mate.

    • Irion Da Ronin


      Ok, i got 13 e-mails in my mailbox, so i guess these are the times i pressed “OK” to get the synth.


      • Tomislav Zlatic


        Yeah, that last part (the huge OK pop-up with nothing else around it) could be a bit more descriptive.

    • Tomislav Zlatic


      Have you checked your spam folder? If you did (and nothing’s there), perhaps give it a go with a different email?

  3. Tomislav Zlatic


    Yes, you install the BeatFirst app on your phone or tablet and then use it to download Beatzille for your Windows, Mac or Lunux based DAW.

  4. You must’ve meant this to raise awareness of your app, but it’s so shoddy I immediately uninstalled it. It’s simply not really for the limelight.

  5. If you don’t have an Android/iOS phone you could try something like AmiDuOS (Android emulator for Windows).

  6. You don’t really need Android to get it.


    However, it’s not worth it. Single core only and many filters disabled… who does that?

  7. Downloaded and installed on my MAC. But it doesn’t appear neither at ‘Applications’ nor somewhere else. Am i doing something wrong?

  8. I have this app already..when I saw this post I was like “oh yeah, why don’t I ever use this app?” then was reminded that unless I run it in Deutsch, my phone hangs and has to be hard reset… It’s a pity cause I’d love to try this out

  9. Downloaded yesterday to my son’s Android tablet (Acer Iconia Tab8 or something), followed the instructions and received my download mail within a minute! Was only able to test it for a short time but I think it’s safe to say that Beatzille sounds simply AMAZING! I actually got stuck with the 2nd factory preset (forgot the name now), holding 1 key and turning the cutoff knob – my ears were in heaven. :D Thanks Tomislav (and Beat + U-he of course), you really are doing great job with this site, I would have missed it otherwise.

  10. the app sucks totally, cannot complete the procedure because it crashes my tablet ALL THE BLOODY TIMES.
    btw, np, i’ll do without :P

    • Leave subscription stuff blank (unless you do have a Beat mag sub..)

      For me it is also not working. Tried 2 accounts, on phone and even with that android on windows thing someone mentioned above. But when i log in the app freezes :(

  11. Don’t know if it’s a big deal. U-he makes amazing software but Beatzille doesn’t have multi-core support and high quality mode neither. I face Beatzille as a demo from Bazille that of course is a great soft-synth.

  12. Fairus Dellant


    Lots of respect for u-he and crew, but this promotion was a complete failure for me. iPhone 6s, and I’ve used BeatFirst on it many times. The StudioDrive registration isn’t something I’ve tried before, so maybe this feature is new and not-quite debugged.

    With all the holiday giveaways, freeware recaps and sales this time of year, there’s plenty to get lost in, this is best forgotten for another day.

    Thanks Tomislav for giving us the heads-up all the same!

  13. So glad I came across this, for how stripped down it is, it really is surprisingly versatile. Definitely grab this while you can guys!

  14. Your app doesnt’t work. After login I can’t go anywhere trying with back button and tapping “X” btw. not a single control works after login.
    I’m on Android 4,3

    Btw. thanks for this opportunity to waste my time with buggy apps.

    • Rob van den Berg


      You do know that the app isn’t made by BPB, do you.

      Still a buggy app though.
      Deleted it once I got the download :-)
