Santa Fe Springs, August 4th, 2010

SoftEgg TM is pleased to announce the release of music-making application Rhythm Core Alpha TM for Nintendo DSiWare TM for the Americas on Monday, August 9th, 2010 for 500 Nintendo Points TM !

Rhythm Core Alpha TM is an advanced music creation system designed for creating and performing live music in-front of an audience. It contains DRUM GRID for creating drum parts, a NOTE GRID for creating instrument parts, a unique 2D SOLO MODE where the user can play music live with the stylus, and a PATTERN SCREEN for arranging pattern and key/scale changes.

“The great thing about Rhythm Core Alpha is that the music never has to stop. You can be editing one block, while playing another.” says program creator T. B. Trzepacz.“Rhythm Core Alpha detects the key of the music automatically, so you can change the key of the music you sequenced with the +Control Pad or face buttons, like fingering a guitar, while soloing with the stylus using your other hand. Or you can sequence all of the chord changes in the pattern mode and concentrate more on your playing.”
