By PSW Staff • February 27, 2014 GrooveMaker 2 has been totally redesigned and enhanced with more professional tools for creating non-stop loop-based music on the go on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch IK Multimedia is pleased to announce GrooveMaker 2 version 1.1, the most powerful mobile loop based music making app with a patented “groove generator” engine that lets anyone create professional quality non-stop grooves, beats and songs in real time. GrooveMaker 2 version 1.1 adds universal compatibility that provides iPad users with an intuitive groove making interface and full suite of professional tools and effects for creating music and grooves on the go on an iPad. GrooveMaker 2 provides a completely new and intuitive way of making music by using groups of loops called songs (60 loops per song) that always sound good together, and users use these to build grooves and complete songs. GrooveMaker 2 gives users total control over the creation, mixing and remixing process from a newly designed iOS 7 style interface and intuitive controls, loop import, automatic mixing controls, loop effects, mastering effects, groove sequencing and export controls. With GrooveMaker 2, anyone can make music and be a DJ, anywhere, any time. Millions of Groove Possibilities GrooveMaker 2 features over 3,600 available loops from a continually expanding library of over 60 collections for virtually every style of groove music including House, DubStep, Hip Hop, Techno, Electro, D’n’B, Trance, Reggae, Reggaeton, Rock, and artist’s packs from Ace of Skunk Anansie, Chris Domingo and Cool & Dre and more. GrooveMaker 2 features just one app that houses all of the loop collections, and all previous purchases of GrooveMaker styles are unlocked when the app is registered and available from within one convenient app. Tons of New Power-User Features GrooveMaker 2 excels as a live DJ performance tool and mobile composition app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. For re-mixing on the fly, the new Grid Interface allows users to switch individual loops with a quick touch in the track, or “draw” a completely new groove simply by dragging a finger across the screen. “Drawing” on the grid selects the loop associated with the available slot under the user’s touch and does it in real time so GrooveMaker 2 is always in time and on the beat. GrooveMaker 2 now lets users set the length of the individual loops and entire grooves down to 1/4 of a bar, providing more creative flexibility when composing, building and layering grooves and creating songs. GrooveMaker 2 features a pro-quality proprietary time-stretch engine that allows complete control over tempo without affecting pitch. Tempos can be modified up to 200% and down to 50% without change to the original tones and pitch of the loops. 16 Professional DJ and Production Effects GrooveMaker 2 also features a suite of up to 16 effects users can apply “on the fly” to mixes and grooves. Plus, GrooveMaker 2 now gives users the creative flexibility of being able to record the automation of the application and parameters of the effects during playback for an added level of freedom. Effect parameters are touch-controlled on an XY field and each effect has additional parameters and features from which to choose. The groove effects include the staple effects like delay, reverb, filter, flange and wah, but also specialized effects designed for live DJ performance like stutter, noise, twist, tail, brake and spin. GrooveMaker 2 also features a master effects section for tightening up and polishing your final sequences.
