Here’s a fun app for you technology minded singer-songwriters. The TC-Helicon VoiceJam is a low cost alternative to the loop pedals made famous by artists like Ed Sheeran, Kimbra, and KT Tunstall. With other hand-controlled interfaces running as much as $399.00, this $3.99 app is a STEAL! Here’s an example of what you can do with a loop pedal.
The VoiceJam app works with the internal mic and headphones, or headphones that have an inline mic. You can also connect an aftermarket interface such as the iRig 2.
The interface is easy to use and allows you to record multiple loops and even add vocal effects.
If you need help learning to use the app, TC-Helicon offers great tutorials from the help menu.
