No Man’s Sky ByteBeat update adds the ability to make music

No Man’s Sky ByteBeat update, also known as 2.24, has added the ability to make some serious in-game music.

“Over the last few weeks one of our coders got obsessed with making an audio creation tool for the community, we were so excited about it we thought it’d be a nice surprise to release it,” Hello Games said in a recent update.

“We love playing around with music toys like Teenage Engineering Synths or FruityLoops, and we like the idea of creating something that can encourage anyone to make cool audio.

“Once placed in your base and powered, the ByteBeat will immediately begin to produce sound. ByteBeat formulas are made out of simple waveforms that are manipulated through maths – but by default, the device handles all of the mathematical heavy lifting, procedurally generating random presets for you to play with. Dedicated audiophiles have the option to explore deeper, manually sketching out note sequences, rhythms, and even manipulating the raw sounds.”

No Man’s Sky is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
