Sound Trends grüvtron
Sound Trends has released grüvtron, a new iOS app that features sounds, sequences/patterns and drum beats in electronic music styles and is designed to allow for jamming by one or multiple users.
Choose from the list of Presets (arpeggios, basses, leads, loops, etc.) and it loads the appropriate sequences, sound and drum beat. Hit “Play” and touch a square on the grid to jam. Hold multiple squares and grüvtron morphs between the sequences and keeps it all grooving with the beat. Use the Modulation strip to control filter, add vibrato and other effects.
You can use Sound Trends' BeatSync feature to allow two iOS devices (iPhones, iPod touch or iPad) to automatically sync their tempos for jams and performance set-ups. Use two devices each with a copy of grüvtron playing different instruments and beats, or use grüvtron with Looptastic (HD or Producer).
- Choose a Preset and grüvtron selects the right performances and synthesizer sound to create the foundation for creating your instrument Part. Grüvtron is preloaded with performances and styles created in electronic dance styles like Techno, Trance Dubstep and others,.
- Change keys, scales, sounds and other musical parameters. The grid-based touch interface lets you create Bass, Lead, Chords, Pads and other musical Parts with control over note density.
- Morph and combine musical patterns. Use the Modulation strip to add filter, vibrato and other effects.
- Choose any key and grüvtron automatically keeps you in that key.
- Live Play Mode lets you play the synthesizer sounds for free form musical performances.
- Built-in drum beats. Plus the BeatSync function lets you jam with another grüvtron or Looptastic (Producer or HD) user, and your tempos automatically lock with one another.
- Save your performance as an audio file to export to the Mac/PC.
