IK Multimedia Releases GrooveMaker 2 For iOS

groovemaker_2_iphoneIK Multimedia this morning announced a new version of its mobile loop music-making app, GrooveMaker 2, for iPhone and iPod touch.

GrooveMaker 2 boasts a patented ‘groove generator’ engine that enables the user to create grooves, beats and songs in real time — no previous music-making experience required.

GrooveMaker 2 provides a new, more intuitive method of music-making by using groups of loops called songs (60 loops per song) that “always sound good together.” Users manipulate these to build grooves and complete songs.

GrooveMaker 2 New Key Features

  • Redesigned iOS7 style interface
  • Single application allows user to have all his/her loop collections in one place via in-app purchase*
  • 16 Packs available, in 60 song collections**
  • New Grid interface allows for simplified loop remixing
  • Single loop duration and groove duration can be freely selected down to 1/4 bar, with new 1/8 to 1/32 live-repeat function on full grooves for dramatic effects
  • 16 available FX with automation and touch-pad like interface
  • Import functions allows users to import audio files or record their own grooves within the existing collection (available for in-app purchase in the free version)
  • New time-stretch for seamless groove tempo variation from 50% to 200% of original BPM, without changing the pitch
