Steinberg released the 1.1 update to its popular LoopMash app as well as presenting a free version of LoopMash for iPhone and iPod touch users with iOS4 to try out the eminently entertaining approach to mangling beats and tunes.
Available through the App Store, LoopMash is available for EUR 2.99, GBP 2.39 and USD 3.99 while LoopMash Free is free of charge.
LoopMash compares and replaces similar musical elements, blending up to four two-bar loops together. The app comes with over 250 audio loops from different music styles plus more than 50 factory presets as well as an unlimited number of user presets. Each preset includes eight scenes; each scene blends up to four loops together.
By updating LoopMash to version 1.1, preset sharing and the in-app store are added to the app’s feature set. Users may now expand their LoopMash library with various content sets, each containing over 50 premium audio loops created by some of the finest musicians and sound designers around.
The newly featured in-app store is starting off with genre-specific content sets for rock, hip hop and funk as well as an additional three eclectic expansion packs, each available for EUR 0.79, GBP 0.59 and USD 0.99. Plus, created by multi-instrumentalist and producer Erran Baron Cohen is a special set comprising loops ranging from chill out to bossa nova, now available for EUR 1.59, GBP 1.19 and USD 1.99.
LoopMash Free offers iPhone and iPod touch users the chance to experience its innovative approach to mixing loops together at no charge at all. To enjoy the quality content in its entirety, however, users will want to upgrade to the full retail version.
“The in-app store in LoopMash 1.1 is a great way to add to your library. We’re now offering loops in various music styles that are so much fun to play with,” comments Carlos M. Rohde, marketing manager at Steinberg. “And with LoopMash Free, users can check out this ingenious tool without having to pay for it first.”
