Live Chopz allows you to slice a song into sections then to play these sections in loop mode or not, to jump to a section to another (with a simple tap), to duplicate a section or re order them, to add a chopped song to the setlist library (to play all of them). (Auto-Advance to next song in SetList).
How it works?
First you have to import a track (mp3, wav,aiff,m4a,mp4 files.) into Live Chopz from another App, Audio Share, Dropbox, or iTunes files sharing. Then done you load your song. The Auto detect Tempo feature will detect the BPM of your track. Note that this feature works very very well. If your track has not a constant Tempo, no problem, you can set a different Tempo for each sections of your track manually or with the Auto detect feature Then done, you jump to the editor. You play your song and tap on the scissor tool to slice your track. Name each sections with pre-defined song section part labels or create a custom one. This done you sync the track to the metronome and your chopped song is ready to play.
To conclude, Live Chopz is very well done and very easy to use. The App is much more powerful that I thought the first time I launched it. Yes, a lot of editing features are “hidden” and this is really smart… because of this, you can chop a track very fast without to take care of all the others available features (if everything is OK). A remote is also available allowing you to connect wirelessly up to 7 devices. The remote displays the currently playing & upcoming song section.
