Sound Trends Looptastic HD for the iPad
Looptastic HD, the new large-screen version of Sound Trends' Looptastic Producer iPhone app, is now available in the iTunes App Store.
The iPad's larger screen puts all of Looptastic's realtime performance controls into a single window, designed to make mixing more intuitive and tactile. 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, the company says. 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.
