They describe it as artist-inspired music creation and loop remixing apps featuring the sounds of today's hottest R&B/hip-hop genre. Here's the rest of their press release with all the details...
Straight from the studio of this multiple Grammy® winning production duo, Marcello 'Cool' Valenzano and Andre 'Dre' Christopher Lyon have teamed up with IK Multimedia to release "GrooveMaker Cool & Dre", the apps for every level of aspiring music producer to make the style of hip-hop beats currently heard on today's hottest urban and adult contemporary radio. Musicians who love the music from major hit record labels in the styles of Cash Money, Interscope and Def Jam, or the beats behind today's superstars like Lil' Wayne, Trey Songs, Mary J. Blige, and Nicki Minaj, will love remixing loops and making music with GrooveMaker Cool and Dre.
GrooveMaker Cool & Dre's special sounds will make it easy for musicians to cut hard-hitting records for the clubs, offering a grand selection of "Dirty South" hip-hop grooves and "West Coast" melodic vocals in an easy-to-use, 8-track loop and remixing app for the iPhone/iPod touch, and iPad. With GrooveMaker Cool & Dre, musicians are given an extensive arsenal of basses, drums and more to choose from - a palette of room rumblers, 808-style subs, and a variety of 76-90 BPM style loops to pound heartbeats in the clubs. True to today's style of gritty textured hip-hop, GrooveMaker Cool & Dre includes dark synth leads, urban/ethnic percussion, and moving vocal hooks with lyrical melodies to vibe out to. Dozens of loops are included in GrooveMaker Cool & Dre to get musicians of every level grooving right away, with special export features to share and email their mixes to a friend.
"To wake up every morning and do what you love, make music with your friends, make an impact on the world and make a living out of it is an absolute blessing." ~ Cool & Dre.
