How to make great music when on the road - without having to pull the piano out of the backpack: after the successful app LoopMash for the iPhone, Steinberg now introduces the extended version for the iPad. It is available right now in the iTunes App Store.

LoopMash HD is aimed at music aficionados, DJ's and party goers that want to create music on the iPad screen. The app includes more than 250 audio loops - small building blocks of a musical puzzle. The loops come from various musical genres such as hip hop, ethno or drum'n'bass.

The iPad app lets the user combine the 4-bar loops into a scene. Eight four-bar loops (only 4 in the iPhone version) make up a scene. Up to 24 scenes are available per preset (only 8 in the iPhone app). This may result in great songs which at a party or disco invite to dance, chill out or even animate to have a fantastic celebration. For a fast start the app provides 30 factory presets which can be used immediately.

A real special feature of the HD version are the 19 live performance effects - such as "stutters", "reverse playback", "tape stops" or "scratches". They may be incorporated into the self-created presets to give the impression of a live DJ working at his turntable. Four studio-grade effects will ensure even more sound control. The iPad version also offers a pitch transpose function. It is intended to offer expansion packs for the iPad app through an in-app store.

Device Requirements:
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
* 49.5 MB
