Artists gather inspiration from strange places sometimes, like the lines of a favorite book or clatter on a crowded street. Inspiration doesn’t always strike when you’re in the studio (or garage, basement, closet – wherever you play), and nothing is more frustrating than having an idea for a song but no guitar to contrive the tune.
Luckily, we’re in an age of virtual convenience. This particular situation is why we’ve decided to feature Pocketband Uloops by Soundbits as our mobile app of the month for musicians. If you’re determined to sell your music online but inspiration tends to strike at inopportune moments, you need Pocketband.
This unique app lets its users build high quality tracks as a sequence of loops, mixing synths, drums, audio recordings, analog modulators and arpeggiators. You can make full length songs in mp3 format to share with other users of the app, who can contribute to or stream your music and offer feedback.
Pocketband is a cloud-based music studio that lets you make music with your friends over your smartphone – no shared space closet required. Let’s say your drummer quit and you haven’t found the right replacement yet. With Pocketband, you and your band mates could hold try outs over your smartphones to see who you’re most musically compatible with. Pretty cool, we know.
