Sound Trends (the new music software company from the founders of MixMeister Technology) have taken their Looptastic iPhone app to a large screen version for the iPad.
The iPad’s larger screen puts all of Looptastic’s realtime performance controls into a single window, making mixing more intuitive and tactile than ever. Now the loop browser, X-Y effects pad, scratch strip, crossfader, and tempo control are always at hand, and the elastic mixer provides fingertip control over 22 loops at once, up from 10 on the iPhone. See demo at YouTube here.
The powerful new processor in the iPad expands Looptastic HD’s performance capabilities as well. Mobile musicians can now load 25% more audio loops at once. To harness that potential, Looptastic HD includes almost every Loop Set in the Sound Trends Loop Store - 900 high-quality audio loops, nearly 80 minutes in total length. Genres include Ambient, Breakbeat, Drum ’n’ Bass, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Minimal, Progressive House, Reggaeton, and Trance. The loops are available via free download from within the app.
According Sound Trends President Aaron Higgins this is just the beginning. "People who step up to Looptastic HD today can expect some fantastic new features soon via free upgrades."
Looptastic HD can import custom loops over Wi-Fi from a computer, and export performance recordings as 16-bit AIFF files. The Mix-n-Match feature allows Looptastic HD to load up to 32 loops from different loop sets simultaneously, playing up to 26 at a time. The app automatically time-stretches all loops to fit the master tempo.
