LooperSonic is a multi-track audio looper and recorder that will take your loops to the next level. Use it like a loop pedal to make loops, and then arrange those loops into complete songs with cut, copy, trim, paste, reverse, and undo/redo.
Record a loop by tapping the record button at the beginning and the end of the loop just as you would with a loop pedal. Or start the metronome and set your loop to count in for hands free looping. Change the loop points on the fly while recording new loops without stopping playback. You can also do straight recordings without looping.
Use cut, copy, trim, and paste to structure your loops and recordings into a song. Turn a loop into a backing track for a verse by duplicating a loop for a few bars. Merge tracks to make room for more recordings. Undo and redo recordings and edits up to 100 times.
When you change the tempo, the pitch changes along with it, like a record player. Use this to make a guitar sound like a bass, or to sing out of your range. Along with the reverse feature you can make some pretty cool effects.
Get audio in and out using Inter-App audio, AudioBus, and/or audio copy/paste. Share individual clips or a whole song mix with ease. Audio can be copied from song to song. Or a selection of clips can be mixed down and shared without stopping playback.

LooperSonic makes loops the same way a loop pedal does and just like a loop pedal, it requires precise timing to make a good loop. All sounds in LooperSonic are created by the user. For the best experience, make sure to wear headphones.
Solid looper, actually prefer it over Loopy
LooperSonic is laid out sort of like a stripped-down DAW, and I like that approach. It has most of the basic functions for recording loops, and unlike Loopy, I actually find myself able to edit and rearrange those loops after recording the raw audio in a way that makes sense. This app replaces LoopTree, which looked similarly promising, but was intended more for live music and lacked some of the basic functionality of this one. LooperSonic could probably benefit from some additional improvements to recording start/stop and AudioBus triggers, but it's a nice app.
Love this app!
This app is great for getting down song ideas quick...copy and paste a drum beat and layer some guitar parts on top of that and you've just created a jam! Doesn't take long to learn to use either. The interface is laid out like a DAW so it's much easier to get the hang of than other loopy apps I've used. If the developer will add a pan control on the next update, this will be even sweeter 👍
I highly recommend this looper app. It is easy to use and has a clean design with all the functionality I need. Musicians, look no further!
