Mixvibes just released an update to its hugely popular Remixlive looping app. Now at version 3.0, the update adds drum pads for finger drumming on the fly. This added interface gives the app a new live performance dimension, allowing you to improvise alongside loops. You can even build your own loop patterns using the new pattern sequencer recorder for beat making from the ground up.
The update means that you can do so much more with Remixlive than before. For example, you can sketch out a drum pattern using the pads first, and then once you’ve got a groove in mind, you can hit record and save it as a sequence in Remixlive, which you can then layer a loop on top of. Basically, you aren’t limited to just playing back stock loops and one shot samples, adding a whole new creative aspect to the app.
Check out the promo video below to see it in action.
• Remixlive 3.0 is now available on the App Store and Google Play. Check the Remixlive website for more details.
