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

Loop Content For Retronyms Hook
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 🙂

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

You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements.
