Arpeggiator Synth App By Sound Trends

Gruvtron

I had the pleasure of contributing content for this cool new app by Sound Trends. It’s also available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Grüvtron = Jam, perform, and produce with the new Sound Trends electronic music app, Grüvtron. Now available for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, Grüvtron features sounds, sequences / patterns, and drum beats in electronic music styles and is designed to allow for easy jamming by one or multiple users.

To use Grüvtron, choose from the list of Presets (arpeggios, basses, leads, loops, and so forth) and the app will automatically load the appropriate sequences, sound, and drum beat. Then hit Play and touch a square on the grid to jam. If you hold multiple squares, Grüvtron morphs between the sequences and keeps it all grooving with the beat. Use the Modulation strip to control filter and add vibrato and other expressive effects.

The BeatSync feature allows two iOS devices to automatically sync their tempos for simplified jams and performance setups. Moreover, you can use two devices each with a copy of Grüvtron playing different instruments and beats, or use Grüvtron with Sound Trends Looptastic (HD or Producer).

Grüvtron features at a glance:

* Preloaded electronic riffs and performance presets
* Sounds are in dance styles like techno, trance, dubstep, and more
* Adjustable keys, scales, sounds, and other musical parameters
* Grid-based touch interface lets you create Bass, Lead, Chords, Pads, and other musical Parts with control over note density
* Morph and combine musical patterns
* Modulation strip adds filter, vibrato, and other effects
* Choose any key and Grüvtron automatically keeps you in that key
* Live Play Mode lets you play the synthesizer sounds for free form musical performances
* Built-in drum beats for jamming
* BeatSync function lets you jam with another Grüvtron or Looptastic (Producer or HD) user
* Save your performance as an audio file to export to the Mac / PC
* Copy and paste your new creations into other Audio Copy / Paste compatible music apps

NO LONGER AVAILABLE

  • iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Magix Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
