Hook Enhanced EDM Loops
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

 

In 2008 I was producing loop kits for an iPhone app called Looptastic. Almost 10 years later I’m producing for Retronyms. Funny how the basic technology is the same. Both Looptastic and Hook read ACIDization meta and do stretching. Back then Looptastic was the only app doing this before GarageBand for iOS. In 1998 I worked at a company called Sonic Foundry editing their loops for Acid Pro. As much as I’d like to escape the loop biz it keeps sucking me back in lol. Anyway excited to announce my latest pack Deep EDM now available in the AudioCopy content store!

Clubstep, Downtempo Lounge, and Dark EDM now out in the AudioCopy content store! http://retronyms.com/audiocopy/store/?dest=retronyms/com.retronyms.Clubstep

Audio Copy – It’s copy and paste, just a whole lot smarter: AudioCopy makes it easy to copy and paste sounds to or from hundreds of compatible apps

*** LAUNCH DISCOUNT – 40% OFF UNTIL 20TH FEB ***

Moving away from the typical 80s multi-track paradigm found in most music making software, KRFT is a unique and inspiring way to create music. By combining a variety of loops, dials, effects and more, you build your own customized musical Surface. These interfaces are a collection of musical functions and ideas that can be controlled and interpreted in real time.

The nature of this workflow allows you to make expressive decisions on-the-fly and create dynamic compositions that would be difficult to achieve in typical music software.

MODULAR MUSIC MAKING
Donโ€™t be confined by pre-defined interfaces, make your own rules! Want to build a song? Add loops and groups to build a structure. Need to add a layer of jam-ability? Add drum fills, live effects and filters. Now get jamming!

POWERFUL SOUND ENGINE
A highly optimised and high quality custom sound engine is at the core of KRFT. Choose from 50 Bass presets, 50 Lead presets, 14 Drum Kits & over 50 Sound Effects to make your creations. Go deeper and tweak filters, effects and more to make the sound your own.

NON-LINEAR COMPOSITION
Rather than writing a song from start to finish, KRFT lets you play and re-interpret your composition giving you the opportunity to experiment and add flair in real time. Record multiple takes and export them to your favourite audio software or upload online.

Author View comments Tags Tags: , , ,

I’m excited to announce that today I signed a 12 page contract with Retronyms. I will be producing loop and sample content for their apps Hook and iMPC which will be available through their iOS audiocopy content store. In the past I’ve produced content for the following iOS apps Sound Trends (Looptastic, Studio HD, Meta Dj), Finger Pro LP-5, Noisepad 2.0, Audio Elements, and iPro.DJSampler.

As a loop content producer with almost 20 years of experience I am very pleased to be part of this fantastic new technology and Retronyms is always on the cutting edge. This is why I created my brand “Dj Puzzle” back in 2001. I’m producing puzzle pieces to put together in your music ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out their app “Hook” in the app store.
