Peace Love Productions Princess X Remix Contest

Dance-pop singer-songwriter Princess X is well known for her appearance in American Idol 2011. She was the first contestant Inessa Lee in the San Francisco audition episode. Her TV appearance featuring her belly dancing, Betty Boop impersonation, and YouTube music videos generated a flood of controversial reviews on major media outlets: “Sexy video vixen!” (MTV News), “bizarre music videos” (Yahoo! Music), and “she filled the room with cuteness and youth.” (The Wall Street Journal)

Three of her original songs, Remember Me, Take Me to the Moon and Insane in F#, were chosen for the Lifetime original movie Five (2011) directed by Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys, Demi Moore, Patty Jenkins, and Penelope Spheeris.

Princess X has just released a new single You Turn Me On co-written by Grammy Award nominated producer Mike Burns. You Turn Me On is about physical attraction and sensuality. The dance-pop song is catchy, upbeat, and racy with elements of Dubstep. The remixes were produced by Grammy Award nominated composer Luigie Gonzalez, et al.

The best remix win an iPod Touch loaded with apps and promo on the Princess X website.

Sound Trends Looptastic HD

Sound Trends has released version 1.2 of Looptastic HD, a live remix app for iPad.

Create your own non-stop remixes in an incredibly intuitive way. Combine over 900 high-quality loops with your own imported samples — without stopping the music! Personalize your performance with 9 touchpad-controlled effects. Capture your moves and export them as CD-ready audio files.

Changes in Looptastic HD v1.2

  • Performance Tempo Control — three fast ways to get in sync
    • Tap Tempo, the top user request, adjusts Looptastic HD’s master tempo to help performers match other gear, songs, or musicians. Just tap the screen on the beat and Looptastic HD locks in.
    • Tempo Nudge buttons momentarily raise or lower Looptastic’s tempo to ease the groove back into the pocket.
    • Direct Tempo Input enables the performer to input a precise tempo between 40 and 250 bpm (with 0.1 bpm resolution) using the iPad’s large onscreen keyboard.
  • Reverse Playback — add dramatic backwards sound effects to the mix
    • Looptastic’s unique Scratch Strip now enables performers to reverse the selected loop instantly during playback for ear-catching variations.
    • The Loop Toggle button is now implemented as two larger buttons — Always Playing and Touch To Play — for enhanced scratch control during live performance.
  • Stutter Effects — realtime sample-slicing is perfect for glitch and build-ups
    • Looptastic HD’s X-Y effects pad now has three new rhythmic effects designed in collaboration with virtuoso performer Jordan Rudess. Like all Looptastic effects, these work on any or all of the three mixer zones.
    • Stutter Looped lets performers trigger and repeat sounds via the X-axis and warp pitch via the Y-axis.
    • Stutter Stepped adds stuttering effects based on note lengths (1/8, 1/6, 1/32, etc.).
    • Stutter Gate clips the mix rhythmically for a more percussive-sounding stutter effect.

Looptastic HD is available to purchase for the introductory price of $9.99 USD. The price will change to $14.99 USD on May 24th, 2010. The update is free for current Looptastic HD owners.
