Propellerhead Software has released Take, which they describe as a creative recorder for musicians. They say that it's got the same drop-dead simplicity you've come to expect with your voice memos, with features custom-tailored to vocalists' needs--like the ability to record harmonies along with your voice, blend in effects to sweeten the sound and sing along to an array of beats and rhythms. Propellerhead believes that Take will soon become your go-to sketchpad for musical ideas. Here's what they have to say about it:
• Sing, hum, rap, strum. Take captures your musical ideas--anytime, anywhere.
With a single tap you'll be recording, beatboxing, overdubbing, riffing, writing, trying out song ideas that you'll want to share with the world.
Feel the groove. Stay on the beat. Keep in time.
Inspiring built-in clicks, loops and beats to kick start your creativity.
• Add new parts, double them up, create harmonies, sketch out the song
Three tracks to build on your tune and flesh out your ideas.
• Surprise yourself with how good you sound.
Processing and effects that make your iPhone's mic shine.
• Share on Facebook, Twitter, email.
Note: Take is optimized for the built-in microphone on your iOS device. Wear headphones to hear your backing tracks. Best results come from using headphones (the ones without an integrated microphone) and recording into your iPhone/iPod/iPad mic directly.
