The T-Pain Engine overview

The T-Pain Engine is a fun and easy way to make beats, record vocals, add the T-Pain effect to your voice, and share your songs via SoundCloud. Music-makers, start your T-Pain engines!


  • Make beats: choose from hundreds of beats or make your own
  • Record vocals: sing or rap, then add the official T-Pain Effect™
  • Share: post songs for all to hear, straight to the Web via SoundCloud

Choose a beat

Preview and select from over 50 T-Pain-approved professionally crafted beats, featuring everything from pulsing bass-driven kits to slow jams to otherworldly dance anthems.

Load the default song

Each beat provides a full set of patterns that correspond to song parts like Intro, Verse, and Chorus. When you choose your beat, a prearranged song appears on your Beat track to get you up and running quickly.

Arrange your patterns

Use the pattern chooser to swap in pattern variations, add or delete patterns to change your song's length, or arrange a whole new song from scratch.

Edit in iDrum

Want to get advanced? Personalize your beat by editing patterns directly within iDrum: T-Pain Edition, or create your own patterns and kits!


Do a Sound Check

Put on your headphones, plug in a microphone, and let Sound Check walk you through the steps of getting your computer ready to record.

Record your vocals

Sing, rap or freestyle over your beat on two different vocal tracks, then edit or do retakes until you're perfectly satisfied with every word.

Add The T-Pain Effect

For more vocal flavor, bring T-Pain's distinctive sound to your vocal tracks, tweaking the hardness and softness control to dial in just the right sound.

Adjust your mix

Balance the volume levels of your vocals and beat with the mixer controls, then build intensity by adding Beat Drops that briefly silence the beat for dramatic effect.


Export audio files to put on a CD or publish your song straight to the Web via SoundCloud, keeping Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks in the loop!
