Traxxpad blends the power of sequencers, drum machines, and keyboards while simultaneously making the equipment easy to use and accessible, allowing anyone to create, mix and sample their own tracks at home or on-the-go. Music making can be as fun and easy as simply pressing buttons, or as in-depth and detailed as the user wants to make it.
The key to the intuitive design of Traxxpad is its utilization of different high-end, music-making modules which focus on different aspects of music making such as sequencing, song assembly, and melody creation. Sounds can be assigned to specific buttons, and inputted into a sequence by rhythmical button presses. To make the game accessible to people will all musical skill levels, if a sound is off-beat, Traxxpad automatically associates the sound to the nearest 16th note, allowing immediate, great-sounding results.
Equipped with over 1000 stock sounds which range from drum samples to exotic instruments, the extensive sound library ensures that there is always variety to choose from. If more is needed, Traxxpad can also be utilized as a Sampler, utilizing its compatibility with the PSP microphone. Sample anything, anywhere, and then use the wave editor to trim, adjust gain, normalize or reverse the recording. Most importantly, Traxxpad allows users to export their songs to .wav or .mp3 files, enabling production to be as easy as burning to a disc or transferring to a MP3 player.
With Traxxpad, players now have the ability to make a sick beat, the perfect song, or the best ring tone -- the choice is up to them, and creativity knows no bounds.
Developed by Definitive Studios, Traxxpad is set for release exclusively on the PSP in North America this spring 2007.
