The sounds of 2016.

We appreciate you.

Throughout this year, we worked to improve both the developer and user experience of AudioCopy. We updated the AudioCopy SDK twice, improved stability, fixed a few bugs, and added the convenience feature to let you swipe on any folder or sound pack to delete it. Don't forget to update AudioCopy to Version 3.4.1!

2016 was an exciting year in the Content Store, with over 40 new sound packs released. With the summer launch of Hook for iPad and iPhone came the introduction of Hook-enhanced sound packs in AudioCopy. These packs are designed to lay out perfectly when they're pasted into Hook. We took a look at your 10 favorite packs and we're excited about the results.

1. AraabMusik
2. Hook City
3. Urban Roulette
4. This is Hip Hop
5. Chronic Sounds
6. Sound Mob
7. Organic Electronics
8. Melodic Horizons
9. Alia Lock
10. Underground Legendz

We're offering all 10 of these packs for 50% off until December 31st, 11:59 PST. We're thankful for you and your support this year. Thank you for using AudioCopy to record, share, and copy/paste audio in 100's of compatible apps on iOS. We're excited for what 2017 will bring.

We're giving away something special.

Thanks for making Wej possible. 

You have been with Wej, a hackable wireless music performance base for iOS, from the very beginning. You've supported our first hardware project through each and every step of production and turned what was once a dream into reality. We can't thank you enough, really. We were thrilled to ship Wej to our preorder customers earlier this spring.

Seeing your enthusiastic response to Wej has overwhelmed us with gratitude! We've sold out multiple times and our factory has been pretty busy. ;) It has been amazing to see Wej in your hands and hear about how it's enhanced your creative process.

Thank you for believing in us. We're grateful for you.

Thanks for making Hook awesome.

2016 was an amazing year for Hook. We launched in July, hoping that this music performance, mashup, and DJ app for iPhone and iPad would expand your creativity even further.

With features like a multi-touch transition tool -- what we affectionately call the flux fader, and the ability to grab samples from iTunes and Spotify, Hook opens up a world of possibilities. Hook is a pro tool with a full mixer, tons of tracks, integrated FX bus, per-cell fx, transpose, time stretching, tuning, timing and trigger settings, and more.

With the launch of Hook came the introduction of Hook-enhanced sound packs in AudioCopy. These packs are designed to lay out perfectly when they're pasted into Hook. Seeing how you're using packs like Drum & Bass Neuro Science and Deep Impressions from the Content Store in your creative process makes our day.

Hook for iPad is on sale for just $5.99 - that's more than 50% off. Thank you for investing in us. We're wishing you the very best in 2017.
