IK Multimedia announces GrooveMaker 2.0 shipping

Real time dance thingy      19/06/00

Italian developer IK Multimedia has announced the release of GrooveMaker 2.0. Allegedly 'the world's only groove generator and loop-remixing software for creating non-stop dance tracks in real-time with professional results', the software enables you to mix grooves on-the-fly using the included huge collection of recombinable loops; import and match any audio file instantaneously; and export high-quality mixes (if youÌre any good at matching them, of course) for CD or internet publishing. There are far too many new and enhanced features to talk about here, but IK promises that you'll have 'instantaneous control over eight stereo loop tracks'; you can 'play live synth parts along with your mix using the Synth Arpeggiator'; and you'll be able to 'manipulate loops in real time - pan, volume, mute, solo, group, tempo and pitch'. The software comes with a huge CD-ROM library of high-quality bass, bass-drum, FX, pad and percussion loops. The application has been reprogrammed for use on Windows 95/98/2000/NT as well as MacOS and BeOS. IK has annoucned a two-tier pricing structure too. The standard version of Groovemaker is $79.95 (upgrade price $49.95); loop fans can benefit from the new DJ box version wich includes two extra libraries (Teknostorm and Contaminated), a total of 1,250 loops. 'Tons of acid beats and chemical mixtures,' says the company, for $129.95 (upgrade price $89.95)! There's lots more - including a demo - on the website:
