LoopJam 1.1
Remix your music loops with a click

Loops are a great way to speed up the process of creating your own tunes, which is why many people build up huge libraries of their favourites.

If you can't quite find the loop you need, though, it may not be necessary to download even more. Grab a copy of LoopJam, instead, and it can remix and rework your existing WAV loops at a click.

Launch the program and it'll immediately start playing a demo loop. The program splits this up into sections, and can apply various effects to each one. You can try to analyse this in detail, and manipulate the loop in a few simple ways, but it's much easier to click the "Jam" button, which automatically applies a different set of effects and begins to play the results.

Using this kind of random approach means the results probably won't be an improvement, of course. In fact, they're usually much worse. But as you get to hear the remixed loop immediately, it'll only take a second or two before you realise the truth, so if it's not worked you can just click "Jam" again to have another go.

If you get bored with the demo loop, then the program has several others you can try.

And if it does come up with something you like, then at any point you can click "Export" to save your remix as a WAV file.

While this is all rather basic, it's fun and extremely easy to use, definitely worth a look if you'd like to bring new life into your loop library. And the future looks promising, too, with the upcoming LoopJam 2.0 scheduled to support automatic beat detection and the ability to change playback speed, amongst other goodies.

Verdict:

A simple, but fun and extremely easy-to-use audio loop remix tool

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
