Loopcloud 6 has now arrived!

I’ve just read that Loopcloud version 6 has now been released! It has a number of new features including AI harmonic and rhythmic file-matching, improved search, better workflow, new FX, and much more.

What is Loopcloud?

Loopcloud is a cloud-based music sample store, made by Loopmasters who have been selling sample packs for years. The idea is that instead of buying a whole pack of samples that you won’t use everything in, you can buy individual files with credits, when you need them. Loopcloud has a desktop app which connects directly to the store, and also integrates with your DAW. This allows you to play samples in time with your own projects and use the app audition new sounds on the fly.

I’ve been using Loopcloud on and off for a few years and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cloud-based sample store. I can’t wait to try out the new features!

Look out for my forthcoming post about Loopcloud and how I use it in my music production.

I’m on iTunes at last

The remix I did for New Zealand dub/dance band Pitch Black is out today on iTunes and all the usual download sites (Amazon.com, Beatport etc). It’s one of the tunes on the band’s 6-track EP “Rude Mechanicals” and is my very first release on iTunes – in fact my very first “official” remix – so I’m feeling quite chuffed! The track has been on my music player for a while, so hopefully someone might like it on here!

Rude Mechanicals official release date

My remix of Pitch Black’s Rude Mechanicals gets its official release worldwide on 27th October 2008. The band’s latest newsletter says:

The second single from Rude Mechanicals – the title track itself – featuring Queenstown’s KP, is due out digitally on October 27th with remixes from PZ, Sound Guise, Mistrust, and our very own Mike Hodgson in his nefarious Misled Convoy alter-ego. We’ll be posting the tracks up here for your musical delectation.

Don’t forget, you can listen to the track on my myspace music player right now and (hopefully!) download it on iTunes etc when it’s released. If you’re a DJ and want to play the track in your set, let me know and I’ll send you download link for a CD quality file.

So, it’s official – my first proper release!!! I know it’s only a remix, but I’m very proud to be part of this project, and thanks go to Mike and Paddy, and of course Jasper at Crazy BaldHead.
