Modena, Italy (November 17, 2009)–IK Multimedia has released two new applications for the iPhone/iPod Touch: GrooveMaker Electro and Drum ‘n’ Bass (D’n’B).
These complete the range of available GrooveMaker applications with two new style-based apps that allow users to create and share nonstop Electro and D’n’B tracks for DJing, remixing, multimedia and movie soundtrack compositions on the go, in real time.
GrooveMaker reportedly allows for instantaneous control over eight stereo loop tracks, making it possible to remix the included loop library of drums, bass, bass drums, lines, pads, percussion and effects. Its patented randomization feature allows musicians to generate a vast number of remixes on the fly, with one touch, to produce millions of possible groove combinations.
Loops made in GrooveMaker can be manipulated in real time (pan, volume, mute, solo, group and tempo), and grooves can be arranged by dragging and dropping to create full-length tracks. These tracks can then be saved, previewed and recalled on the iPhone/iPod touch devices or exported as high-quality .WAV files to any computer using a Wi-Fi network.
Electro gives users mechanical and aggressive uptempo beats, weird and chemically altered sounds–a collection of “phreaked out” bass lines and alien noises. It includes four songs, plus one free song by registering, and a total of 315 loops in 85-98-100-120-135 BPM ranges for 215 MB of samples.
Drum ‘n’ Bass sports 2-step bass lines, psycho-trance, environments and tribal grooves. It includes four songs, plus one free song by registering, and a total of 315 loops in 150-160-170-180 BPM for 127 MB of samples.
