Collaborative Music App for iPad

See full list of features

Cotracks is a collaborative music app for teamwork on a single iPad. With Cotracks you can create multiple layers of loops and phrases with multiple instruments. In Cotracks you are never farther than a single tap away from recording, regardless whether you are flying solo or collaborating with a few friends.

Everyone in your session has the ability to play and record at will without disrupting or being disrupted by the workflow of others. This lets you lay down the foundation of a tune within minutes and makes Cotracks the perfect and inspiring tool for brainstorming new ideas within a group.

Designed for Collaboration

Preventing the performers from disrupting each other, while multiple musicians are recording simultaneously, requires a very carefully designed workflow. Cotracks offers a solution that’s based on synchronizing the start and stop times of takes to predefined synchronization points.

This introductory tutorial shows how Cotracks’ recording workflow works.

Designed for Varying Number of Users

You can start off creating music in a single user mode. Later when your friend decides to join in, you switch to a two user mode. The interface layout will adjust enabling convenient access to the application from both sides of the table. Whenever another friend happens to join you, the layout will adjust again enabling access from all four sides of the device, letting you team up with up to three friends for a super creative music session. Whenever one or more of you must leave the session, it is as easy as a single tap to switch back to a smaller team or to the single user mode, letting the remaining members continue from where the others left off.

Designed for Variably Skilled Users

Cotracks offers lots of fun for both novice and advanced musicians at the same time with the help of flexible quantize, sequence sharing and editing capabilities. For example, a novice musician may grab a copy of a complicated sequence played by a more experienced friend and edit the instrument, sound and effects, record modulation controllers over the sequence and tweak the various playback parameters including key and scale. Essentially creating something new and exiting without necessarily playing a single note. Cotracks is all about giving everybody the means to contribute, which takes the concept of music collaboration to a new level.

It’s like playing with a band, but this time you can record and play back your own parts, in perfect sync with others, and create the constituents for a great track at the same time. With Cotracks the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
