Boston, Massachusetts – Ninebuzz Software, creator of popular iOS music apps Guitar Jam Tracks and Drum Beats+, today is pleased to announce Drum Beats+ 1.4, an update which adds 20 new free beats and support for AudioCopy, a functionality that allows beats to be copied into other compatible music apps that feature AudioPaste or Apple’s General Pasteboard functionality.
Drum Beats+ for iOS is a simple and fun collection of drum loops for stress-free jamming, songwriting accompaniment and now, music creation. At $2.99 USD, Drum Beats+ gives musicians over 75 on-demand backbeats, with adjustable tempos and varying styles (expandable via in-app purchase). Version 1.4 adds 16 stylish and funky Break Beats, and several new additions to the Hit Songs pack.
“We’re very excited about this update because we’re delivering a highly requested feature that makes the app way more powerful for songwriters and music creators: AudioCopy. Drum Beats+ can now go further along in the music creation process, not only accompanying musicians for practice, but actually serving as the back beat for their creations. Musicians can audition beats quickly in Drum Beats+, find one that fits their song and then paste it into their favorite music-making/recording apps to start recording the demo. Our goal is to reduce the time between inspiration and creation, and we think this definitely helps.” says Rick Belluso, co-founder of Ninebuzz.
AudioCopy/AudioPaste, created by Sonoma Wire Works, is a functionality built upon Apple’s General Pasteboard feature in iOS that let compatible apps share data. It is tailored for audio and there are over 100 music apps that include AudioCopy/AudioPaste. Loops from Drum Beats+ can now be copied out and pasted into AudioPaste-enabled apps.
Featuring an attractive, dead-simple design, wide selection of loops, and high-quality sound, Drum Beats+ makes the perfect companion for musicians of all types.
* New! AudioCopy – Export each beat to your favorite AudioPaste-enabled apps, such as GarageBand, FourTrack, StudioTrack, etc.
* Adjustable Tempo – Each beat is sampled at 14 different speeds (60-190BPM in intervals of 10BPM). Change tempos on-the-fly to test your skills or find the perfect feel for a song.
* Great for Practice – Much more than a metronome, playing along with drum beats builds rhythm and timing faster than a plain click track. Beats+ also features a number of non-standard rhythms, seldom heard in loop apps.
* Save Time with Favorites – Tap the Star icon next to a beat to store it as a favorite for quick access.
* Quick Inspiration – Tap the randomizer button to roll the dice and get inspired with a random beat!
* A Variety of Great Beats – Ships with over 75 beats to start, expandable by in-app purchase (coming soon). Grow your library of styles and rhythms to keep practice fresh or inspire your songwriting.
* An Instant Drummer On-Tap – Beats recorded and sequenced by a professional drummer/songwriter. Great drummers are hard to come by. Now, one is always at your fingertips.
