IK Multimedia has introduced Loop Drummer, a high-quality drum module that’s included in the new AmpliTube 2.9 real-time guitar-and-bass multiFX-processing and recording app for iPhone/iPod touch and iPad.
The programmable, loop-based drum section lets users easily create custom drum tracks and sync them seamlessly to the AmpliTube recorder.
Loop Drummer sports over 500 loops, which are available in a variety of popular styles including Rock, Blues, Country, Metal, Funk, and more. Loops are grouped in “Style Packs” containing up to 64 different loops for each of the available styles, which are organized in 8 “songs” with 8 loops each, including intros, outros, fills, and alternate parts.
In addition to Loop Drummer, the new AmpliTube 2.9 adds a handy new feature to the recorder, a pre-roll function that can be turned on and off. The pre-roll gives the musician who’s recording two measures to lock in on the groove before recording starts, making it easy to play in tempo from the very first beat.
Version 2.9 is a free upgrade for owners of previous versions of AmpliTube for iPhone/iPod touch and iPad and includes Loop Drummer with a free set of 8 loops from the Rock style pack.
Eight additional Style Packs (each containing 64 loops) can be obtained via in-app purchase for $3.99 USD each. The complete collection is available in the All Style Pack bundle, which sells at the discounted price of only $14.99 USD.
