NAMM 2011: IK Multimedia Releases GrooveMaker Cool and Dre Apps

January 14, 2011

Winners of Multiple Grammys, Marcello "Cool" Valenzano and Andre "Dre" Christopher Lyon have teamed up with IK Multimedia to release GrooveMaker Cool & Dre.

GrooveMaker Cool & Dre's sounds offer a grand selection of Dirty South hip-hop grooves and West Coast melodic vocals in an easy-to-use, 8-track loop and remixing app for the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad. With GrooveMaker Cool & Dre, musicians are given an extensive arsenal of basses, drums, and more to choose from—a palette of room rumblers, 808-style subs, and a variety of 76-90 BPM style loops to pound heartbeats in the clubs. True to today's style of gritty textured hip-hop, GrooveMaker Cool & Dre includes dark synth leads, urban/ethnic percussion, and moving vocal hooks with lyrical melodies to vibe out to. Dozens of loops are included in GrooveMaker Cool & Dre to get musicians of every level grooving right away, with special export features to share and email their mixes to a friend.

GrooveMaker Cool & Dre apps for the iPad and iPhone/iPod touch are now available from the Apple iTunes App Store for $9.99 each. For more information, visit the Cool and Dre product page.
