EarthMoments

EarthMoments has announced the release of its unique Rututu Music Playground app for iPad. It can be downloaded for free until midnight December 27, 2015 from the iTunes app store.

Rututu offers an easy-to-use, touch-based interface that combines authentic, pristine samples of indigenous ethnic, world and Western instruments, along with several bundles spanning different genres like rock, pop, hip hop, dubstep and more. Its unique, custom-designed control surface and non-linear music composition tools make it extraordinarily easy for both musicians and non-musicians to create original music.

The app can be downloaded for free from now until midnight December 27, 2015 from the iTunes app store here.

Based around a series of recording sessions with musicians from all over the world, the library in the Rututu app brings a variety of hard-to-obtain sounds to the fingertips of all types of musicians. Combine this with Rututu's touch-based control surface and the result is an intuitive and easy-to-use tool for beginners and skilled musicians alike.

Users are able to easily incorporate the Rututu app sounds into both traditional and modern music using the loop-based composition and beat-making features in the Rututu app.

"The Rututu app offers several things not available in the market today, starting with the ease of producing top-notch, great-sounding music through its unique interface. Additionally, most producers and musicians don't have access to the kind of instruments made available through Rututu, because they are not available outside of the sacred communities the EarthMoment team visited. It took extensive research to develop an intuitive platform and to locate the best musicians and instruments – and with Rututu, users can easily add these unique flavours to their songs," said Rututu Project Manager Yoav Rosenthal.

The Rututu Music Playground samples and loops in the app can be manipulated using a unique, custom-designed touch-based interface. Users will open a "playground" and drag "soundpads" onto locations on the surface. Each soundpad will offer loops and rhythms that play a variety of sounds that change depending on where they are placed in the playground. The sounds can also be manipulated using a variety of effects.

The app features a library of sound bundles for musicians, DJs or producers to create grooves. Original graphics in the app weave traditional Indian themes into the app's modern applications.

"The Rututu app presents a fun and creative way to incorporate its vast selection of tracks into contemporary music. Anyone can open it up and create with it right away, and the sound quality brings loop-based composition to a whole new level," said EarthMoments Director Kris Karra.

Tracks created in the Rututu app can be able to instantly be shared to SoundCloud directly from the app.
