Music Sales Group has launched a groundbreaking iPhone application called Freestyle, that allows users to write and record songs over original music and email the recordings to friends, all within their iPhone or iPod Touch. Available in the App Store today for FREE download, the application combines a note pad, a microphone, a rhyming dictionary, and a sound bank of 10 original beats to write and record to. The app has already been endorsed by indie hip-hop heroes, Tanya Morgan, and the user response generated has been overwhelming since artists began testing the application during the CMJ Marathon in New York City, and were blown away by its convenience and functionality. Geared toward the hip-hop community at large, but with the potential to reach a much wider audience, Freestyle is poised to change the way that artists write and compose lyrics in the next decade.
“Ever had a rhyme to write, but no notepad?” Don Will of the rap group Tanya Morgan asks in their endorsement video. With Freestyle, users not only have a note pad, but also a portable recording studio and stellar selection of backing tracks, right at their fingertips! For the laymen, Freestyle’s built-in rhyming dictionary offers suggestions should they get stuck on a word. The application’s easy-to-learn controls and record function make Freestyle the ideal pocket companion for anyone who rhymes, professional or novice. “It’s just plain fun!” Freestyle is available for FREE for a limited time at http://j.mp/freestyleapp.
