BPM 1.5's expanded library of more than 19 GB of kits, patterns, samples, loops and instruments covers dozens of new musical styles, such as big beat, dancehall, dub, electro, hard trance, house, drum 'n' bass, progressive, and others. New software features include enhanced support for hardware MIDI controllers, a note repeat function, and bank effects that can be saved with kits.

BPM 1.5 includes Beat Box Anthology, a comprehensive 4 GB collection of legacy rhythm sounds (comprised of more than 10,000 samples) from 80 classic drum machines from the 1970s, '80s and '90s. Users can browse individual samples, kits and patterns from three categories of devices: classic (reserved for machines that attained true cult status, such as Roland's 808 and 909 series), analog and digital. Samples are also organized by type (kick, snare, etc.) for easy browsing.

MOTU states that utmost care was taken in sampling the original instruments, with 24-bit/96kHz audio quality and professional mastering of all samples at Sterling Sound in New York City.
