Cakewalk has released ScratchPad for iPad.
Designed for any music-creation enthusiast on the go, loop-based ScratchPad for iOS is intended to offer a fun and easy way to create compositions for music creation and live performance. Tweak, scratch, and stutter loops anywhere, any time: Create beats and grooves in seconds by simply dragging and dropping loops from any genre right onto each of nine Expression Pads. Then, manipulate them on the fly through a variety of performance-oriented special effects, including an XY filter pad. Tempos are locked in so loops are never out of sync, and users can record and play back performances directly from the app's browser.
The app comes loaded with content—but users can also import their own loops via Dropbox for an even more creative experience. ScratchPad can also route to other apps through Audiobus for additional musical possibilities.
- Remix and tweak an assortment of loops and genres.
- Manipulate loops on the fly.
- Record your live performance.
- Never lose the beat--stay on time, all the time.
- Import loops using Dropbox.
Price: $7.99 at Apple's App Store.
