Zildjian’s GEN16 Grooveplayer app is a mobile groove composer built for iPhone and iPad. Great for drummers on the move – from beginner to pro - and it’s competitevely priced at $2.99.
Create complete drum arrangements from your grooves and fills, in a wide variety of styles, tempos and time signatures. And when the inspiration well runs dry, choose from thousands of grooves by many of the world’s top drummers and percussionists including Adam Nussbaum, Alex Acuna, Billy Ward, Carter Beauford, Ilon Ruben, Kenny Aronoff, Marco Minnemann, Russ Miller, and a lot more. No, really. A LOT more.
Listen to and edit all the grooves in the palm of your hand. Edit tempo, and manage audio levels & stereo balance for each drum voice. Wherever and whenever inspiration strikes, lay down a groove and take it with you.
You can create rhythmic masterpieces wherever inspiration strikes, and save or export them in standard MIDI format, for use in your DAW of choice. You can even share them with friends and bandmates via the built-in dropbox functionality – and it sounds to me like this could be the perfect tool for tech-savvy teachers and students, although this application isn’t mentioned anywhere in the press materials!
