For those that love minimal beats and glitchy grooves, this will ripple right up your alley –
chipPad is a multi-track sample and loop playback and performance application.
It is made for the musician who creates loop-based music and is looking to experiment with on-the-fly arrangements or to glitch it up a notch.
By adding your own pre-cut loops on up to 8 tracks you can perform using various “grid-based” controller techniques and develop new ones that are only capable on a multi-touch device.
Sliding one or multiple fingers back and forth on various tracks or tapping rhythms like on a drum machine can yield some amazing results you can’t hear elsewhere.
chipPad comes with a few sample sessions to get you started. Simply select Help from the Gear menu to get started or load your own AIF or WAV audio files into the app using File Sharing via iTunes.
More detailed help available in the app.
