This video demonstrates a distributed beat making session, using two Android tablets connected to the same GrooveCloud song.
Here’s what the developers have to say about GrooveCloud:
GrooveCloud is a collaborative music sequencer for the Android platform that enables users to make music together. Within GrooveCloud, songs can be composed by multiple musicians at the same time.
For example, imagine yourself arranging a drum pattern while a friend is taking care of the bass section and someone else is arranging the track. The interaction is also available in the mixer and the fx section, allowing remote set of the mix scene on all the devices connected.
GrooveCloud is designed to be a ‘social sequencer’, letting you interact with remote friends over the Internet, and connected to social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Soundcloud.
- edit sounds, tracks, mixer channels, midi notes on the cloud
- share your tracks as sources to your friends to let them continue your creation
- work on your tracks in real-time with your friends or with random people around the world
- let other users interact with you musically
- keep track of edit history
- export your tracks to social networks and ogg or wav
The GrooveCloud audio engine offers the following features:
- native audio I/O
- per-note ADSR envelope
- unlimited song length
- 8 patterns
- 8 tracks (Instruments and Drumkits)
- Mixer with reverb and delay
GrooveCloud is now in beta. See the GrooveCloud site for more info.
