-- “This is the best loop station on the iPhone” -- Dub FX (dubfx.net)
-- “I pretty much own every mobile looper out there and Loopy is HANDS DOWN the best. Super simple interface with powerful features.” -- J. Alan Meier
-- “If you want a recording app that will get out of the way and just let you be creative, you just found it.” -- Dave Merson-Hess, indie film composer
-- “Loopy 2 is by far the best looper for the iPhone we’ve seen to date” -- iOS Recording

Now compatible with Ableton Link, a new technology that synchronises beat, phase and tempo. It works between Ableton Live and Link-enabled iOS apps over a wireless network, or iOS apps on the same device. Just turn it on in Settings to get started! http://ableton.com/link

Compatible with the Audiobus app: Now you can receive live audio directly from other Audiobus-compatible apps!

While other music creation apps tend to be either powerful but difficult to learn, or easy to use but limited in features, Loopy doesn't compromise. Loopy offers a sleek, expressive, instantly understandable interface that beginners can start using effectively straight away. It's fun, right from the start.

More advanced users, however, will not be disappointed by Loopy's rich feature set, with extra features many other loopers just don't have. Plus, a sophisticated interactive tutorial system lets users discover Loopy's more advanced features at their own pace.

- Six, nine, or twelve beautifully rendered circular loops, with simple yet powerful controls.
- Count-in, count-out and record chaining lets you keep your hands free to play an instrument.

- Support for tracks of any multiple or fraction of a beat, for flexible and expressive looping.

Best Looper Ever

I've used tons of different loopers and this is hands down the best one ever. I've tried hardware loopers, software loopers, on mac, windows, linux - you name it - and this is the fastest/easiest to learn, most readily configurable, intuitive, and powerful looper I've ever used. It's super fun and the midi control support works great (I run a softstep into it). Works well with audiobus for recording other apps and the session recording feature is awesome. It's really easy to try out ideas and generate new and interesting textures on the fly. My only hope is that this is eventually released as a vst or audio unit plugin on mac so I can finally have the looper I've always wanted in ableton!

Not There yet

I am by no means an expert in looping and just started working with this program. I see that it has tremendous potential, however the interface for me is extremely confusing and very poorly laid out. I have watched several tutorials on this and still find it very difficult to use and to understand.

I think if the interface could be streamlined and the various choices be laid out on a single panel without having to go back-and-forth to change this parameter and that parameter it would be much easier to use. I really feel the potential is there, but for me the interface is far from being perfected

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, I don't disagree - lots of improvements are coming in Loopy Pro, and I'll then roll them back into Loopy itself.

Abandoned app?

The dev has been promising a new version of this app for years now. This app itself is fine, but I’m leaving a 2 star review because of the time wasted following his blog and waiting for the promise of all of the wonderful new features to be fulfilled. This app hasn’t changed substantively in a VERY long time.

It also hasn’t been featured on Jimmy Fallon for a very long time. Maybe drop that BS at this point. It’s old.

This app is like an extremely cute and talented kid who never grows up and reaches his/her potential... don’t fall for the Loopy Pro/Loopy Mastering Edition line of crap - it’s a false promise. It ain’t happening...

Developer Response

It was pretty rough reading this one, Mkeymont, I gotta tell you. I'm sorry to hear you're disappointed, but Loopy Pro has been a big project, and sometimes things just take a long time, especially when other responsibilities are involved. Not sure this kind of entitlement and hostility is really warranted. I actively maintain and support Loopy, and work on Loopy Pro continues. Loopy was on Fallon this September.
