LONDON, December 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
SessionBand¬†is the revolutionary new music app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that lets¬†anyone¬†create professional-quality music in minutes. ¬†With over 70 musical styles and a simple, intuitive user interface, it has been designed to capture the broadest audience possible - from pro musicians to those who can't play a note!

Created by UK Music Apps Ltd,¬†SessionBand¬†is a game changer. It's the world's¬†only¬†chord-based audio loop app, which means for the first time, users can create pro-quality music from almost every chord and in almost every main style. And they can do it in minutes...wherever they are, by simply selecting chords and watching them convert instantly into great sounding audio loops.
SessionBand¬†is powered by 80,000 precision-cut audio loops (all of which are chord-based) created by some of the UK's best session musicians and producers, who have previously recorded with Mariah Carey, Kylie Minogue, Leona Lewis, Mark Knopfler, Van Morrison, Sugababes and Cheryl Cole. ¬†
SessionBand's¬†chord-based format has far-reaching benefits. It means that you can instantly 'flip' the track you have just created between all 71 musical styles, hearing your R&B track as Reggae or your Deep House tracks as Dubstep. Speed tracks up, slow them down, mix and arrange and share your music on the go. And because loops reside within the app itself,¬†SessionBand¬†is perfect for the user on the move - no internet required!
SessionBand¬†has been priced to represent great value. Introductory price is ¬£1.99 (iPhone) and ¬£4.99 (iPad) and comes with 16 of the 71 styles pre-loaded on the iPhone version and 20 on the iPad.
SessionBand¬†offers loop sets for every taste with a diverse range of genres from Acoustic, Blues and Dance, through to Country, Hip Hop/Rap, Rock and Urban/R&B. Add-on 'Style Packs' offer additional¬†multiple¬†loop sets, which can be purchased from within the app itself, enabling access to an even broader range of styles.
SessionBand¬†was the brainchild of UK entrepreneur Paul Sissons, former CEO of private equity-owned GTI Media. ¬†UK Music Apps Ltd has a suite of additional apps scheduled for release in the New Year which will receive full global marketing support.
