Pete Cottrell

Pete Cottrell rocks out on his iPad and guitar with several apps. “All audio was recorded, mixed and mastered on an iPad Mini however for technical reasons, I did have to record the guitar audio from the iPad onto the computer and then re-import it back onto the iPad. I didn’t change or edit anything though. I’m stupid and couldn’t get it to record straight onto the iPad using Audio Bus or Inter App Audio without feedback but a cleverer person than me could do this completely on the iPad.”

Apps used in this video are: BeatMaker 2, GarageBand, Drums XD, Positive Grid Jamup/Bias, GeoShred, Audio Bus and Positive Grid Final Touch.

BeatMaker 2 – INTUA

GarageBand – Apple

Drums XD – Studio Quality Percussion Custom Built By You! – Squeegees

Sound Trends Looptastic HD iPad Sneak Preview
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Looptastic HD, the new large-screen version of Sound Trends’ flagship Looptastic Producer iPhone app, is now available in the iTunes App Store, where Apple is featuring it as a New and Noteworthy iPad app.

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.

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.

Sound Trends President Aaron Higgins says, “Customers who saw the sneak video preview on our site were amazed how much the iPad’s huge new canvas enhances the Looptastic mixing experience. And we’re just getting started. People who step up to Looptastic HD today can expect some fantastic new features soon via free upgrades.”

Looptastic HD Features

* Widescreen mixer holds 32 loops with 22 on screen; cue up to 26 while the music plays.
* Free download access for 900 loops — nearly 80 minutes of samples.
* Nine realtime effects with X-Y touch pad control, including Bit Crusher, Multimode Filtering, Flanger, Delay, and Glitchy Repeater.
* Automatically time-stretches all loops to fit the master tempo.
* Triple-zone mixer with crossfader for cues and breakdowns; apply effects to any zone.
* Unique scratch strip retriggers a loop from anywhere in the waveform.
* Import original loops and sound bites in AIFF, WAV, or OGG format using an easy Web interface. (Requires a Wi-Fi connection to a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer)
