In class today James introduced us to a site called soundtrap which allows students to create musical tracks using pre recorded loops online. This is a great site to use in school as it is easily accessible through the internet through a 30 day trial. Either sign up as a student or a teacher and create/join a class group to share ideas. This site is particularly useful in a classroom setting as it allows for teachers to create assignments for students to complete and turn in to the teacher. In class, we were given the opportunity to experiment with the site and create our own tracks, by dragging pre recorded loops together. However, this site allows for creators to change the pitch of the pre recorded loops using a online midi keyboard, as shown in the image below.
