UK Music Apps Ltd has launched Volume 2 of its top-selling, chord-based loop app - SessionBand Jazz for iOS, while also announcing that new apps in the range are to be released every month including dedicated Rock and Blues editions. THey tell us that all SessionBand apps feature exclusive performances from some of the world's best session musicians. Here's the details in their own words...
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 top 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 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. 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 while the Jazz editions have been endorsed by Jamie Cullum who describes them as "extraordinarily useful for jazz musicians of any ability". Meanwhile, Jazzwise Magazine calls SessionBand Jazz "supremely versatile and...quite possibly the future of jazz play-alongs".
