App Description

GrooveMaker® Rock Ace is THE app for creating non-stop rock, metal and thrash-metal tracks in real-time, by anyone. Over 315 hi-quality loops included!

Rock Out Loud!
Millions of rock grooves at your fingertips.

Ace is the guitarist and founder member of huge UK rock act, the recently reunited and multi-platinum world-selling, Skunk Anansie who have sold over 5 million records so far. They are currently touring worldwide and their massive new album 'Smashes & Trashes' is storming the charts throughout Europe.

The loops, personally created for you by Ace, contain killer rock grooves, riffs and solos that range from Classic to Modern Metal for endless combinations of hard rocking out fun! All the guitars were recorded in the studio with no editing involved, to capture an authentic wild and exciting performance from Ace.

With GrooveMaker Rock Ace, you can create professional full-length tracks and grooves for your play-along practice, music compositions, ambient soundtracks, movie scores and more. And it’s so easy to learn, you’ll be creating the rocking track of your life, in minutes.

The GrooveMaker app gives you a completely new way of making music with loops. Thanks to our patented “groove generator” technology, you can automatically remix the hundreds of loops included (grouped into “songs”), on the 8 available tracks, in virtually limitless ways, all with one touch. With GrooveMaker Rock Ace, ANYONE can rock out.

On the iPad, GrooveMaker's features have been enhanced to a whole new level thanks to the larger multi-touch surface which is like having an integrated, advanced mixing controller built-in the app.

You will find a convenient mixer-like environment with large slider controls for volume, pan and master level with metering of the 8 loop tracks as well as additional controls such as tempo, solo, mute, and more, all available on the same screen.

The possibility of switching between grooves with just one touch or control the number of loops that are automatically combined during a mix, pushes the boundary of what you can achieve with GrooveMaker in a live situation.

There are more additional GrooveMaker style packs available for every genre of club music and more — club, house, techno, trance, drum and bass, electro, reggae, reggaeton and a FREE version to start making grooves right away!
