"a looper unlike any other.. you would be damn wrong not to test it.." - Guitar Part Magazine June 2014 (biggest french guitar magazine)
Loopr is the first 64 tracks loop song sequencer / multiple phrase looper with MIDI controls and sync for real time live composition.
"Loopr is a budget-priced bargain that is well worth a punt even if only to experiment with. This is a very capable – if slightly quirky – looper app at a pocket money price." musicappblog.com November 2013
Honorable mention as finalist in the Best App Ever Awards 2013 ( http://www.bestappever.com/awards/2013/winner/musc )
Loopr is a low latency loop recorder, player and step sequencer designed for realtime phrase and song composition using your iDevice. Compose, practice, jam along, or sample audio soudscapes easily with this compact pro-oriented loopstation. It is focused on ergonomy and simplicity via one-finger but also hands-free MIDI pedalboard controls, and lets you synchronize drum machines and sequencers via its MIDI out sync.
Loop sessions can be exported/imported as independent files (including tempo and time signature information), for you to share the groove or use with most desktop audio production apps (e.g. Logic Studio, Garage Band, ...). Using iTunes file sharing or email, you can easily manage your work beyond your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Loopr is CoreMIDI and CoreAudio compatible and enables you to use most popular iOS compatible interfaces.

Ratings and Reviews
Instructions for using?
I downloaded this while it was free and then could not figure out how to use the app. Nothing about the interface is intuitive and the videos I've seen are pretty useless as far as providing clear instructions on how to get started. So glad I didn't pay for this and I have deleted the app as there's many better looper choices available.
Developer Response ,
Sorry you don't understand the app and can't figure out how to use it. It is pro oriented and definitely has a harder learning curve. But we are sure you will have other alternatives fill your needs, there are definitely some other great apps out there. Cheers.
What is this?
This is by far the most ugly thing I have ever seen in the Appstore.
Also I have no idea how to use it. It's THAT badly made. Whatever I try, it does not record nor play anything. Either broken or useless.
Developer Response ,
Sorry you can't use it and don't like the interface. If you have difficulties using this app, you can check out the videos for help. Cheers.
No Audiobus support. No support for horizontal or landscape mode. And it's not a very attractive app. Why would someone make an app in 2017 that doesn't support Audiobus?
Developer Response ,
Sorry you need audiobus and don't like the app. We recommend you chose alternatives that do support it and that you prefer. The goal of this app isn't cross app sound compatibility but providing the apps current functionalities. Maybe in some future iteration. If you have problems understanding the app, you can check out the videos. Cheers.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
