For musicians who like to glitch breaks, Alex Matheu has just released GlitchBreaks, an iOS manipulation tool for “glitching” breakbeats.
Users can work with the 90 high quality loops that come with the app from various artists including Alex Matheu himself and others like Daniel Myer (Haujoob, Architect, and Destroid) and Juan Espinosa (Cellmod). If those high quality beats aren’t enough for the more advanced users, performances can be brought in through iTunes or copied and pasted from another iOS app.
Features include a four channel mixer with four continuously looping channels, auto-BPM detection, XY-Pad loop modulation, a cut editor/sequencer with four save slots, and much more.
The app description promises that it’s easy enough to operate for a beginner user with enough features for the glitch-breaking pro to love. The app is universal and has retina display graphics for new iPad users. The app currently costs $4.99.
