BEATS & SYNTHS MUSIC STUDIO

Groovebox is packed with professional sounds and patterns to kickstart your mobile music-making.

Play with touchable instruments to create your own beats and melodies easily. Two powerful synthesisers, designed in partnership with Novation, give you classic deep retro basslines and analogue harmonic melodies.

A powerful drum machine with an ever-expanding library of drumkits provides instant beat-making power.

EASY TO USE, DEEP ENOUGH TO MASTER

Groovebox is easy to start, yet deep enough to master. Advanced synth parameters* let you sculpt your own sounds. Control your sounds with the note sequencer, key and scale modes and iPad mixer. Export your sounds easily to a laptop to produce further. Sync via Ableton Link with other apps or Ableton Live. Audiobus, Inter-App Audio and Ableton Live Export are also supported.

SONIC IN-NOVATION
