PocketLoops arrives

I posted on this a while back. The app requires one of their keyboards although I'm not sure when or if these are available as yet.

I have tried to get in touch with them a few times to find out more about the keyboard and if they're going to publish an SDK but they haven't replied to any emails! Never mind!

Here's the app's description:

NOTE: This application requires a compatible Pocket Loops keyboard, available through major retailers or online at gear4.com. For more information on Pocket Loops, please visit gear4.com.

Create your own beats and melodies using the PocketLoops keyboard and app.. Start expressing yourself by playing the keys to drop a beat, melody or effects.

The PocketLoops app lets you record the sounds you play from the keyboard. Sounds are recorded as loops to let you create the ultimate sounding tracks with awesome bass-lines, unique melodies and rich sounding effects.

Be your own producer by mixing and recording the tracks you create. Make your tune more dynamic by using the Echo or Chorus effect and create amazing distortions with the XY Filter Pad. Now that you have created a cool sounding track, why don’t you share it with friends via e-mail?

As far I can tell the keyboard should be coming out here in the states in a month or two and will retail for about $70 dollars. No idea what the functionality is but it might be cool.

Like I said I've tried to contact them but they've never responded sadly.

I'm all for keyboard support, but *requires* a keyboard!? Nuts to that I say.

How can it be called pocketloops if you have to lug a keyboard around??

Anyway, I'm half-kidding, maybe it'll be cool. I don't think I'm going to buy their keyboard just to try their app though.
