Mixvibes released today Remixlive v.3 for Android adds finger drumming support and a new wide array of creative possibilities to all Android users. Great to see is that this Android app support Ableton Link and it’s quite rare. This allows now to sync an Android device with an iPhone or iPad.
The first iterations provided an intuitive way to make and remix music. With Remixlive 3.0, finger drumming, creating and playing loops is now available on all Android devices, turning the app into a software counterpart to music-making controllers. Remixlive was designed to provide a workflow allow anyone to lay down musical ideas in the spur-of-the-moment.
Whether remixing or creating a song from scratch, loops have provided a good gateway for experimenting with different sound combinations. It soon became clear that loops would offer a greater potential with finger drumming. Including percussions and notes as one-shot samples, this mode make possible to create of original rhythmic patterns and arrangements, turning Remixlive into a full-fledged instrument. The option to record patterns brings loop-based music making to anew heights as it gives the opportunity to jam with a new set of original loops.
With an overdub mode and an extra grid that you can fill with recorded patterns, the only boundary is the user’s imagination. This update takes advantage of a new quantize parameter: even with device latency, you can play right on time. Newly created patterns can also be snapped to the closed beat mark and played back as perfect-sounding loops. This, added to low-latency optimization, offers a smooth and effortless finger-drumming experience across all Android devices.
