The best iOS looper for structured looping
I’ve tried them all and this is my favourite. It’s main advantage over other loopers is that it allows you to easily make different sections for your compositions. It may not be the prettiest out there but the layout and operation strike a good balance between simplicity for live performance whilst allowing the possibility to tweak the mix by quickly adjusting levels, panning etc and also adding some very useable effects.
At last ! A Proper "Song Section" Looper
This looper has made my day. Goes way beyond other iOS loopers and actually seems to be a kind of bridge between Ableton and loopers.
In Ableton parlance - think of it as having many "scenes" but with a "master scene" that can run continuously while switching between the other scenes. Each "Scene" can have up to 4 loops or "tracks" running simultaneously.
This app is awesome and the developer is very actively supporting feedback .
I'm pleasantly surprised so far by this app. It has a clever, easy to use interface and appears very stable. I think I would like to see copy/paste as an import option but I'm happy to get AudioShare just for Group the Loop.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
