UK Music Apps Ltd has launched three new versions of its chord-based loop app - SessionBand for iPhone and iPad. There are now dedicated piano and acoustic guitar versions of the app, plus a special jazz edition which features four of the world's top jazz musicians. Here's what the company has to say...
SessionBand is the world's only chord-based audio loop app. Users create their own professional quality, copyright-free music in minutes by selecting and joining together chord blocks and watching them convert into editable audio loops.
Powering each of the SessionBand apps are thousands of audio loops recorded exclusively by some of the world's best musicians. What makes SessionBand so unique is that all of these loops are chord-based, making it possible for users to quickly and easily create backing tracks to any of their favourite songs...and without playing a note.
This unique content is downloaded with the app itself and resides there, so users can create music anywhere - without the need for ongoing internet access. The new SessionBand apps also come with professional features like automated mixing, auto-transpose, one-touch recording, real-time tempo shift and Audiobus compatibility - allowing users to seamlessly export content into other music apps like Apple's own GarageBand.
SessionBand has already been selected as 'New and Noteworthy' in App Stores in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and the new jazz edition was immediately picked up and endorsed by Jamie Cullum who described it as "...an extraordinarily useful tool for jazz musicians of any ability".
