Producer Tools, the new mobile app for electronic music production from developers Quadrophone & raaza, is now available for download from the iTunes App Store and Google Play. The app’s comprehensive set of tools allows music producers to quickly perform calculations and look up musical reference information without interrupting their workflow. Producer Tools is designed to take care of the tedious parts of making music, leaving musicians free to focus on creativity.
Producer Tools incorporates five functions, each designed for the needs of electronic music producers: a delay calculator, a chord finder, a frequency translator, an equalization guide, and a harmonic mixing wheel. All of the app’s features are optimized for making music in a digital audio workstation: the chord finder automatically translates flat notes to MIDI-friendly sharps, for example, and the delay calculator converts note lengths to both milliseconds and Hertz. The categorized equalization guide includes “cheat sheets” for equalizing essential elements of electronic dance music, including lead and pad synths, basslines, and kick drums.
The app is downloadable for $1.99 US from the App Store and Google Play (a 10-day free trial version is available for the Android version). Producer Tools requires at least iOS 4.3 or Android 2.2 to run.
