How it works
Select a song
As soon as you launch any of the available GrooveMaker packs you are presented with a list of songs. “Songs” in GrooveMaker are group of audio loops, organized into categories (loops, bass, bass drum, percussion, effects, lines), ready to be remixed in million of different combinations, in real time, without stopping the music flow. Choose one and you are ready to start groovin’…
IMPORTANT NOTICE: THE FIRST TIME A SONG IS LAUNCHED GROOVEMAKER WILL UNPACK ITS SAMPLES. THIS MIGHT TAKE UP TO 2 MINUTES. DO NOT INTERRUPT THIS PROCESS!
As soon as you select a song you enter into the Groove interface where you are presented with 8 groove track pads and all the necessary controls for real time, live remixing. To start making music right away touch on any of the Random Mix button (A to D). A random combination of loops will be instantly loaded into the tracks and will start playing. The groove length is of 8 bars and the loaded tracks will display the category of the loop associated with an animated VU-Meter. The Random Mix buttons generate random combinations of loops according to 4 different flavors: mild, percussive, instrumental and random.
The number of tracks automatically loaded can be selected with the Pref button. Every time you touch one of the Random Mix buttons a new combination is loaded into the tracks always producing millions of inspiring, new grooves. When you like a groove combination touch on the Groove Snap button to save it so you can later build your full-length mix from all your saved grooves.
Control your mix
While you are grooving by touching on the Track button you will be presented with more mix controls. You can Solo or Mute tracks, Empty them or Lock them so next time you touch a Random Mix button the locked tracks will not change. The Volume and Pan of each track will also be displayed on the right so you can fine-tune your mix. You can apply these changes on the selected track or multiple tracks that you can group simply by touching and dragging.
Remix from scratch
Touching on the Loops button you are presented with the list of loops available for the song you have loaded, with the loop associated to the current track highlighted. You can scroll the list and freely associate any of the loops to each of the 8 groove tracks to build your own groove and remix from scratch.
By tapping 3 times on the Tempo button you will be able to control the speed (BPM: Beat Per Minute) of your groove and synchronize it with other sources like a DJ do on stage. By holding the Tempo button a Tempo wheel and a +/- tempo buttons will be displayed so you can adjust your groove’s tempo with precision or produce dramatic speed-up/slow-down effect.
Build your mix
When you are ready to build your final mix touch on the Sequence button. You will be presented with 2 sequences: the top one with the Groove you have saved with the Groove snap button (the Groove list) and an empty sequence at the bottom (the Sequence list). To build your full length mix simply touch on your preferred Grooves and drag it to the Sequence to fill it. You can sequence up to 15 grooves to build your own mix. When you are done you can save your mix by touching on the Mix browser or Export it as a full quality 44Khz/16 bit WAV file to your computer when you are within a Wi-Fi network. All the remixes produced with GrooveMaker are royalty-free so you can use these soundtracks in your musical compositions, to make your own remixes compilations or use them as soundtracks for your videos.
All of this can be made by anyone, anywhere with no music knowledge or any type of musical background.
