SPC- Music Sketchpad


by Mikrosonic


Evolver Review

For around five bucks, SPC lets you arrange, mix, and perform loops and sequences to hash out musical ideas with ease. Pads light up rhythmically as you play to make queuing loops more intuitive. The built-in, four-bar sampler and slicer allows you to record samples and assemble your own loops from them. Direct integration with RD3 – Groovebox (below, also from Mikrosonic) offers more options for seamlessly building and arranging compositions.

Publisher's Description

Mix, record, play and perform your own music with the SPC – Music Sketchpad.

The Sketchpad introduces the audio “scene”, a 16-pad multi-touch enabled screen that lets you play loops and sequences. While you play, the pads light up rhythmically, making it easier to create instinctively.

Start producing now: Upload and manipulate your own loops or use and mix the ones provided in the “scenes”. Program your own sequences by setting steps and notes. Record any sound with a microphone. Produce, record, and share live tracks anytime, anywhere.

If you already use mikrosonic’s popular RD3 – Groovebox, loops you’ve created and exported there can also be instantly available to work into your music!

For accomplished and aspiring musicians alike.
