Quick Tour

Music selection

  • You can play online songs instantly in your browser.

  • You can play custom songs by dragging a folder containing BMS files into this screen. There are over 5,000 songs published in BMS format by the community worldwide. You can find them using BMS Search.

  • There’s an online internet ranking system. You can compete with other players and see your rank online.

  • It has an insane tutorial.


  • Keyboard mode (7-keys). Play along the music with your keyboard.

  • Fully key-sounded. Each note has its own sound. The music will be affected by your game play.

  • Player together with friends using party mode. It helps you start the game at the exact same time.

  • Multiple difficulties. Each song has multiple difficulties to accommodate every player skill levels.

  • Adjustable speed. You can adjust the speed (spacing) of the notes to make it easy-to-sightread. This does not affect the speed of the song; lowering the speed causes notes to become more dense on-screen.

  • Scoring and grading system. Master the song to get the S grade (score over 500000).


  • BMS mode (7-keys + turntable). You can play using an IIDX controller or MIDI controller.

  • HD video support. Some songs will have a background animation in high-definition (720p).

  • Adjustable play area size. If the gameplay area is too long, you can adjust the cover it to make the play area more easy-to-sightread.

  • Early/Late indicator. Bemuse will tell you if you press the note too early or too late.


  • Adjustable panel position. You can position the note panel on either side of the screen, or put it at the center.

  • Adjustable turntable position. You can put turntable on the left or on the right (BMS mode only).

  • Audio latency compensation. Some systems may have audio latency. Bemuse contains a calibration system to compensate for the audio latency.
