San Francisco, California – Aspiring iArtist deeje is pleased to announce version 6 of tappr.tv, featuring Beat Matching controls and Network IO, giving VJs new stunning interactive visuals at live events. Unlike traditional “algorithmic” music visualizers, tappr.tv lets users tap, swipe, tilt, twirl, and hum to dynamically create kinetic, multi-layered visual “dances” to their favorite music. Beat matching controls lets users synchronize loops of visuals, and network IO enables multiple iDevices to dance simultaneously.

The heart of tappr.tv is the “wand”, which responds to a variety of user inputs with bursts of particles and light. There are hundreds of wands available, each personally curated by deeje for their unique and beautiful kinetic qualities.

There are also three input types available: Touch, Audio, and Baton. The Touch input lets users tap and swipe with multiple fingers across the screen. The Audio input transforms pitch detection and volume to spatial placement and size. And the Baton input lets users wave their iDevices around in 360 degrees.

In the Studio area of the app, users can record their wand motions into multiple tracks to create a visual “dance” to a favorite song. When done, users can publish their dances to tappr.tv. There are over 1300 dances already published by pioneers in the bourgeoning tappr.tv community.

In the Theater area, users can watch, rate, and share visuals to their favorite music. With the user’s permission, tappr.tv analyzes their music library to identify their favorite artists, and then automatically finds and downloads matching dances.

New in version 6 is the Live area with Beat Matching controls. In addition to configuring and recording multiple wand tracks, users can set the BPM, time signature, and number of measures for the master loop, and can also tap and nudge the tempo dynamically.

Also new in version 6 is Network IO, which allows multiple iDevices to simultaneously connect over WiFi to a Live stage and all dance together in real time. For instance, a VJ can set one device to Audio input, lock another device into Baton input and slip it into her pocket, and let others join the Live stage from their own devices.

Pricing and Availability:
tappr.tv is a free universal app for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Premium features and themed wand packs are available for in-app purchase. Video Out is also available, via compatible cables or AirPlay on supported devices. For a limited time, users can “Go All Pro” for just $9.99 and get all current and future features at 50% off the suggested list price of all individual features and wand packs.
