IK Multimedia - the leader in mobile music-creation
apps and accessories for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch - is proud to
introduceLoop Drummer, a high-quality drum module that's included
in the newAmpliTube 2.9, the latest version of IK's hugely popular,
real-time guitar-and-bass multiFX-processing and recording app for
iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The programmable, loop-based drum
section lets users easily create custom drum tracks and sync them
seamlessly to the AmpliTube recorder.
With Loop Drummer available inside of AmpliTube,
users can jam and practise over single loops or entire drum
sequences, or they can
compose a full-length drum track (with intro, groove variations,
fills, and ending) to be used as a start-up rhythmic base for
recording full multitrack compositions on the AmpliTube recorder.
All of this can be done inside the app.
Loop Drummer sports over 500 loops, which are available in a
variety of popular styles including Rock, Blues, Country, Metal,
Funk, and more. Loops are grouped in "Style Packs" containing up to
64 different loops for each of the available styles, which are
organized in 8 "songs" with 8 loops each, including intros, outros,
fills, and alternate parts.
Loop Drummer's powerful and unique Remix feature allows the
production of an entire drum track with a single tap, using an
intelligent algorithm that sequences the loops, structuring a song
as a producer would do. At each tap on the Remix button, a new
track is generated. This allows for the creation of endless
inspiring grooves for jamming, practising, or for use in
Alternatively a drum part of any length can be produced by
dragging loops into the timeline. Any of the loops can also be
customized with the Cymbal button, which sets a crash on the
A Tap Tempo button is also available for easily changing loop
tempos, and the module is equipped with a high-quality
time-stretching algorithm that automatically processes the loops
when the tempo is changed. As a result, the loops are usable at a
wide range of tempos with no effect on quality.
Loop Drummer has its own built-in mixer controls, with a cool
circular volume control that allows for adjusting the overall drum
level, independent of the recorder's volume, and also functions as
a reverb send.
In addition to Loop Drummer, the new AmpliTube 2.9 adds a handy
new feature to the recorder, a pre-roll function that can be turned
on and off. The pre-roll gives the musician who's recording two
measures to lock in on the groove before recording starts, making
it easy to play in tempo from the very first beat.
