The team at Hello Games is really getting their groove on with its latest update to No Man’s Sky, letting users create, of all things, synth music.
Part of the new update 2.24, with ByteBeat, players can make their own electronic tunes to play within the game. You’ll first need to acquire the blueprints from the Space Anomaly. But once that’s done, you’ll be able to open it up and see what options are on hand.
You’ll first see some procedurally generated music, but you’ll be able to go in and edit them across both full sequencer and synchronizer interfaces. These will let you change up tempos, drums and instruments however you see fit.
There are deeper systems available as well. The Advanced Waveform AI lets you tweak with sounds even further. And you can also put together several ByteBeat devices at once to create truly astounding arrangements — if you’re willing to put in the effort.
This could be a huge community feature for the game, as you can share your tunes with the world—or just play them around your home base. And you can apparently play your music on the dance floor, with interactive lighting to boot.
In addition, the No Man’s Sky update features the usual various bug fixes, detailed in the patch notes.
This update is available for download now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Now we just need a good DJ name.
