A whole new dimension of loop remixing

GrooveMaker® 2 is the latest version of the revolutionary iPhone/iPad/iPod touch app designed for creating non-stop electronic, dance and hip-hop tracks in real-time, plus saving and sharing them. Need a killer backing track for your social video? Groovemaker is the answer. Create unique, creative grooves and songs on the go with the touch of your finger. Now anyone can get results that sound like they were made by a professional DJ!

GrooveMaker 2 works with pre-arranged sets of loops (called “Songs”) that always sound good together. You can remix them in limitless ways with Groovemaker’s patented “groove generator” technology.

In addition to its touchscreen interface, GrooveMaker 2 now supports a number of powerful control options including iRig® Pads, IK’s powerful ultra-portable pad controller. Plug your iRig Pads into your iOS device of choice and you’ll be able to take advantage of its custom GrooveMaker 2-specific modes — Groove Mode and Launch Mode — that let you control groove length, browse through loops, tweak effects, trigger Randomixes and a whole lot more.

How does it work? Easy. Select a Song and you’ll enter the Grid interface. Push the Randomix button, and you will see the building blocks of your groove appear and the music will start playing. You can change grooves with the Randomix function or literally “draw” new grooves directly on the grid. You can lock loops, solo and mute, change volume, pan and freely associate loops with each of the 8 available tracks. 

Enhance your grooves with the Effects interface. You get 16 high quality effects: Filter, Delay, Flanger and more. You also get highly creative effects like Twist, Brake and Spin that can only be found on sophisticated professional DJ gear. You also have a Master section where you can add a finishing touch to your groove with a Compressor, an EQ and a Filter.

GrooveMaker Packs offer over 6,500 loops. They come grouped as “Song” packs that are each organized by categories such as bass drum, loop, bassline, pads and percussion. There are over 25 Song Pack collections available that feature styles like House, Dubstep, Hip-Hop, Techno, Trance, Electro, D’n’B, Reggae, Reggaeton and Rock.

Ratings and Reviews

SOOO close to perfection BUT...


I used GrooveMaker 1 & enjoyed it immensely and I absolutely love the new interface and ability to import your own loops. 3
improvements would make this a rock solid masterpiece:

1) The ability to use different loops from different songs together!!

I purchased the song mega pack so I could get the most out of the app itself but now I'm feeling a little let down as I quickly realized you can ONLY USE THE LOOPS INSIDE 1 SONG AT A TIME. What the heck guys?! That's like buying a dictionary but only being able to use the "S" words or the "D" words together to form a sentence. Open up the potential!

2) Ability to use FX on individual loops.

The FX touch interface is AWESOME and opens a whole world of creative potential but it's limiting when you can only use the FX on the whole, it would be amazing to be able to use it on individual loops while keeping the rest of the loops in the track unfiltered.

3) Lastly, it would be nice when editing imported loops to be able to begin the loop at any point as opposed to the rigid markers inside the editor. I have quite a few loops that have a half/quarter second or so of dead space at the beginning before the loop starts and it will be annoying to have to go in and individually edit all my loops to start in the first beat.

If these suggestions came to fruition this would easily be my favorite app for music creation, especially for loops. Please make this happen guys!



I'm always looking for an app that could rival my laptop for live performances. I have an iPad just for music. This app is amazing in how one can mix up tracks. I could play for hours... But only on their loops. If you try to import your own, things get sketchy. Although you can import many takes, after 9 there is no way to trigger it from main sequencer screen. They are all grouped together with the same name ( "user #" )... You can't rename them to remember what the loop is. Also, there is no place to save your custom song so I'm under the impression that importing your own loops was made to customize their songs instead of giving you the freedom to build and save your own.

On the other hand, this app is wonderful. FX sound great, customization options are great too, really excited about the possibilities but a bit disappointed in the limitations of audio import.

Waste of disk space


Downloaded this app for free and removed it shortly after again. It's just as horrible as the older GrooveMaker apps and song packs that i wasted some money on in the past. Confusing interface and lackluster songs and loops. Even giving it away for free is not going to save this train wreck.

I would recommend trying out the Launchpad app instead which has a much easier interface and better music as well, and is just much more fun overall.
