Create and Remix Classic Arcade Game Music on your iPhone or iPod touch
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (MuseWire) – ÂiZotope, Inc. has released iDrum Video Game Edition, the latest addition to their popular drum machine Apps for Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch. iDrum Video Game Edition lets you relive the glory days of arcade video games by remixing soundtracks reminiscent of the classics.
“Similar to the popularity of reproducing the old sound of vinyl in hip-hop, there’s been a recent resurgence of this retro video game music genre, now called chiptunes or chip music,” said Mark Ethier, CEO of iZotope, Inc. “iDrum Video Game Edition opens up this style of music to more people, allowing them to interact creatively with retro game music. You don’t have to be a connoisseur of chiptunes to appreciate this edition, and even though it’s not a game, it’s definitely as fun and easy as one.”
In iDrum Video Game Edition, iZotope utilizes cutting-edge audio synthesis and production techniques to faithfully re-create the lo-fi sounds of the 70s, 80s and 90s video game hardware with a huge selection of drum, percussion, voice, and effects samples in 20 original soundtracks. iZotope employs a combination of software emulations and post processing to degrade the quality of modern tools to match the limited performance of the original sound chips in arcade games and video game consoles.
