Apps handle genre-based music production

IK Multimedia has posted two new iPhone applications, GrooveMaker Techno and Trance. The programs are genre-oriented twists on the basic GrooveMaker app, which is used to produce original electronic music. Each one supports over eight stereo loop tracks, which can be adjusted in real-time in terms of pan, volume, grouping and tempo. Completed tracks can be listened to on a handheld, or exported as WAV files via Wi-Fi.

Separating the GrooveMaker variants are the samples included, tailored to the demands of a particular genre. The Techno app includes 315 loops, measuring 228MB, which attempt to reproduce the sounds of early techno music. The loops are further designed to cover tempos ranging between 140 and 180bpm. Trance has 351 loops -- together sized at 230MB -- but covers tempos fitting between 140 and 150bpm.

The new apps are each $10 downloads from the App Store.
