From the stage to the studio, Infinite Looper will let you capture musical ideas, and can provide the framework for songwriting, all in a single integrated app. Loop MIDI phrases easily, control six different instruments, and quickly assemble loops into full songs. Visit the Secret Base Design web site for details and demonstration videos.
* MIDI Looping
There are dozens of audio looping apps; Infinite Looper expands on this idea, allowing you to quickly select different synthesizers, and loop the MIDI to each with perfect synchronization. Each of the instruments can have up to eight simultaneous loops. The loops can be of different lengths, up to sixtyfour measures long.
* Internal SoundFont Engine
Built into the app is an extensive SoundFont library with hundreds of instruments, and multiple drum kits. Pianos, strings, guitar, brass, synthesizers -- it's all there. Everything you need to get going right away.
* Inter-App Audio
Infinite Looper can host IAA-compatible synth apps -- take advantage of the wide range of innovative synths.
* MIDI In and Out
The app recognizes MIDI from other apps, over Bluetooth connections, and from hardware controllers. Secret Base Design is the developer of the innovative Apollo MIDI over Bluetooth -- the first Bluetooth MIDI solution for iOS. We're also partners in the musicIO app, which allows both audio and MIDI to be sent over an ordinary iOS sync cable. The app is built using the excellent MIDIbus library -- the Secret Base Design team has been at the forefront of MIDI on iOS for years.
* More that just loops. Songs.
Built into the app is a loop sequencer -- select different sets of loops for each section of a song, and the app will step through them automatically. You can build complex compositions, so that your songs evolve and breathe.
* MIDI Export
The iPad is an excellent music sketch pad, but it's not the end of the road. Infinite Looper will export a MIDI file for a song, which can be loaded into professional desktop DAWs. Use your iPad to put together a demo, and then bring in the full set of studio tools to finish your masterpiece.
* Keyboards and Pads
The app features a responsive piano-style keyboard -- adjust note velocity by touching towards the tops of the keys. And because on-screen keyboards can be hard to play, there's also ten pages of programmable pads. You can quickly assign notes or chords to pads, making it easy to capture the progression for a song idea, and bring the whole thing into focus.
* Quantization and MIDI Latency
To lock down timing, you can toggle on quantization -- or leave it off, for a loose, natural feeling. If you use external MIDI controllers, there can be latency in the MIDI messages -- the app can time shift slight to account for the delay of Bluetooth connections or WiFi. And if you use an audio-to-MIDI converter app like MIDImorphosis, latency compensation can tighten up the timing.
* All the standards
Infinite Looper supports Ableton Link, making it easy to synchronize the app with other Link-enabled apps. There's full support for Inter-App Audio and IAA MIDI, and Audiobus too.
* MIDI Learn
If you're playing live, your hands might be busy with a keyboard or a guitar. With MIDI learn, you can control the app with a foot controller. Toggle on and off recording, switch tracks, and more. Infinite Looper is ready to be taken on stage, and used live.
* Import and Export
Easily share projects with friends using AirDrop, Dropbox, or by email.
Infinite Looper uses the Ableton Link library, the Audiobus library, and the MIDIbus library. Internal sounds are from the SoundFont set by Christian Collins.
What's New in Version 2.3
A new loop-record mode lets you play along, and capture each loop as a separate take. Pick the take that you like best, and insert it into your project with a single tap. Because the app records MIDI, you don't have to worry about running out of space; just let the loops run, focus on playing, and then go back and find the performance that captures the magic!
The loop import and export functions have been enhanced; you can import tracks easily from MIDI files, export a loop as a MIDI file, or export an entire project as multi-track MIDI. You can also import loops from other Infinite Looper projects quickly.
And because many people have been asking for a Twitter Step Sequencer.... you can now tweet loops out, or import loops that others have tweeted. Seriously. And ok, no one asked for this, but now that you know you can do this, you will, right? Of course you will.
Regret buying this app
I don't like to be critical but the workflow and ui design is rather primitive. (1) When opening the app, why I need to select a project ? (2) why I have to watch a video to find out how to set up the length of measure ? (3) editing requires pushing for few seconds the scene/measure. That is totally inefficient (4) done should be on the bottom of the page (5) button icon don't make any sense (6) probably my old Commodore 64 sequencer app had better graphical of this. I would like a rebound.. I really wanted to use this app but it needs a lot of improvements and it shouldn't have been released yet.
I'm giving this app 5 stars because I know how much time it takes to program something like this.
The feature set is HUGE!
I don't know the programmer, but I know how much work was put into this to get it to where it is now since I program in Xcode myself.
Respect goes to the developer.
I love the chord keys. But I couldn't figure out how to program them to play chords I create. Maybe I missed that button.
This is a serious tool for anyone looking to create MIDI loops "on the fly".
