Blocs, creators of the Blocs Wave loop creation and music making app for iPhone and iPad, just launched a new version. Blocs Wave now comes with Slice mode that lets you chop up and layer portions of loops, samples, and even recordings that you’ve made. You can then tweak them using effects and combine them with other sounds that come with Blocs Wave, either through the stock sounds or sample packs that you can purchase through the app.
We’re fans of apps that make music production accessible, especially to those who don’t have a music background. Apps like Blocs Wave make music creation fun, and serve as a quick dip into basic production without the giant hurdle of learning a ton of daunting music theory and digital audio workstation processes.
Check out the promo video below to see the app in action.
• Blocs Wave is available at an introductory price this week of $4.99. Check the Blocs Wave website for more details.
