Avid have announced the availability of Groovy Music City, a fun music software program that they say empowers kids to start creating their own music from an early age. Here's all the details from Avid...
The Groovy Music City software's easy-to-use interface provides kids with the ability to create a wide range of music such as house, hip-hop, classical and jazz â€“ without any previous musical instrument experience.
Using Groovy Music City software, kids can create songs by arranging a series of entertaining shapes and machines against the backdrop of an animated and futuristic city. A simple drag-and-drop interface lets kids choose from hundreds of rhythms, melodies, bass lines, patterns and chords to compose songs with just a few mouse clicks. They also have the option of selecting from a library of 128 virtual instruments or attaching a MIDI keyboard to create their own unique compositions.
Once they compose a song, kids can upload, share and get comments on the music they create at GroovyMusic.com . This free online community gives kids a safe, secure place to share the music they create and rate and download songs posted by other kids. GroovyMusic.com also hosts an interactive, weekly Top 10 chart that features the most popular and highly-rated songs uploaded to the site. Pricing and Availability:
Groovy Music City software is supported on Microsoft Windows XP/Vista, and Mac OS X 10.4 or later systems. The software is only available on the Avid e-store.
Groovy Music City software has an UKMSRP of Â£29.95 GBP.
