Digital Audio Recording
Record and layer multiple audio tracks. Monitor any mix of tracks (including the rhythm pattern) during your recording sessions. Use separate tracks to layer harmonies, guitar, bass, keyboard, backup vocals, etc. Independent volume controls let you set the mix, and individual mute buttons to quickly cut out specific instruments. Recording on the iPod touch requires the use of an external microphone.

Audio Mixdown
Audio mixdown allows you to combine individual tracks into a single compressed stereo track for publication. Adjust the individual track controls for volume, pan, loop and trim. Adjust the controls during playback to get exactly the sound you want. What you hear during playback is what you get with mixdown. When you are ready just hit the mixdown button. The mixdown goes to a new project and does not affect your existing tracks. Once you have your mixdown, send it out over email or transfer to your desktop using your web browser.

Rhythm Patterns
The rhythm patterns (beat pattens) cover many of the basic musical styles including Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz, Waltz, Hip-Hop and Latin. During audio recording and playback the selected rhythm track is automatically started and synchronized with the audio tracks.

With the metronome you can set the tempo with the calibrated slider bar, or enter a specific tempo to microsecond resolution using a numeric keypad. The volume is adjustable and can be muted. The display shows current bar and beat based on the time signature of the selected pattern, and the elapsed time in seconds. Tempo is adjustable from 30 beats per minute to 210 beats per minute.

The setlist manages all of your settings for the songs you perform. The configurable settings include the song name, the associated beat pattern the tempo, any backing tracks that you previously recorded, pan and volume settings for the beat pattern and audio tracks. You can quickly move through your setlist using presets.

  1. Can anyone talk me thru the mixdown part of this fantastic app? I have no problems recording or downloading the new files to my desktop, Itunes even, but only as seperate tracks. I have read countless times the process for mixdown but clearly I am missing something! Any help gratefully recieved. Thanks, Ted.
