Loopseque Groovebox For iPad

Loopseque is music ecosystem which includes powerful sequencer, sampler, fx processor and record store with many beautiful releases from talented artists.

The design of Loopseque is a circle – a natural solution for visualization of cyclic music structure. Music starts with the first touch and within seconds becomes alive. It’s not just a rhythmic pattern in your hands, but the whole composition. Very similar to the Future Retro Revolution and Orb.

Despite its apparent simplicity, Loopseque is a challenge to the musician. How fast you can change the patterns, which patterns you create, what effects you use – that’s what makes the difference and determines the quality of music material.

Loopseque is a game in which “achievements” are measured by the richness of sound created by the musician on the fly, and “high score” is the number of listeners who enjoy the music of the artist.

It does not matter how old you are, what education, faith, political views, tastes and preferences you have. Loopseque is simple, it is even easier than it seems. You always see what is happening. You can create, edit, produce your song as if you’ve always made music.

Music Production Studio For iPhone & iPad

NanoStudio iPad Icon

NanoStudio is a music app for iPhone which combines sampling, synthesis, sequencing and mastering.

Record your ideas in real time, mix synth layers with samples, compose and arrange your tune using the powerful sequencer and bring the mix alive with real time effects such as reverb, waveshaping and delay. You can use your own samples or record them using the microphone. NanoStudio’s low latency audio engine is custom engineered for iPhone, capable of delivering an amazing 48 voice polyphony in CD quality stereo.

Synth

Introducing Eden, NanoStudio’s versatile synth. Eden creates analogue sounds ranging from deep basslines and fat pads all the way up to squealing 303 lines and heavily distorted leads. Each voice has 2 anti-aliased oscillators modulated in mix, ring or sync configurations fed into a low, band or high pass 2 pole resonant filter.

Eden’s virtual patchbay allows you to connect 3 envelope generators and 4 beat-sync LFO’s to create modulation mayhem. Real-time performance becomes a truly interactive experience with dual X/Y controllers, accelerometer input and a pitch bend wheel, all totally configurable via the patchbay. Controller movements can be recorded and edited using the sequencer

It doesn’t stop there. NanoStudio allows you to use 4 synths simultaneously, each with its own insert effects such as waveshaping, chorus and delay. When you want to go beyond basic oscillators, load up a sample and process it just like a normal synth voice – great for mashing up vocals or even the whole mix.

When you’re ready to get really creative, NanoStudio allows you to resample its own output and trigger the sample via the pads or keys, freeing up synths and effects to add even more sonic goodness to your composition.

Trigger Pads

Record samples using the built in microphone, resample NanoStudio’s own output or upload your own samples over Wifi using the NanoSync tool for PC and Mac. Edit your samples using NanoStudio’s built-in wave editing tools and trigger them using the 16 pads. Adjust pitch, pan, volume and envelopes and assign each sample to one of the 3 output busses, each with its own effect and filter setup.

Sequencer

Record performances in real-time using the keys and sample pads or create patterns and controller sweeps by drawing them in the piano roll editor. Arrange your patterns into a complete song using the track editor. Edit to your heart’s content while the song is playing and rest assured that every editing and recording operation has multiple undo/redo.

Mastering

Use Nanostudio’s intuitive mixer to monitor levels and get your final mix just the way you want it. The mixer’s two global effects sends allow you to individually apply reverb and delay effects to each track.

When you’re ready to share your mix with others, and use NanoSync to copy the exported .wav file to your PC or Mac over Wifi.

NanoStudio is available for $13.99
