mikrosonic releases RD4 – Groovebox v2.0 for Android

mikrosonic has launched version 2.0 of RD4 – Groovebox, a music creation app for Android devices that combines two virtual analog synthesizers, a beat section with drum kits from classic drum machines and free assignable audio effects.

The new version comes with a new synth called Analog modeled after legendary monophonic synths of the ’70s. The new synth has a piano roll and the user can also record notes in real-time with the virtual keyboard. The app supports low audio latency on specific Android devices.

The app has now a 4 channel mixer and the user can choose individually for each channel between the Analog, the Bassline and the drum machine.

Changes in RD4 Groovebox v2.0

  • Completely overhauled version.
  • App is now called RD4.
  • New graphical interface.
  • New virtual analog synthesizer with piano roll.
  • 4-channel rack mixer.
  • Instrument selection for each channel.
  • Support for Full HD displays (Sony Xperia Z, HTC One, HTC Butterfly, Samsung Galaxy S4).
  • Live recording with a virtual keyboard (Analog synthesizer).
  • Piano roll editor with Transpose Pattern, Shift Sequence and Quantize.
  • New pattern and bank structure, 2 banks with up to 8 bars.
  • New playmodes.

The RD4 Groovebox app for Android is available to purchase for $5.99 USD. A free demo version with some limitations is available to download at Google Play.
