What's New in Version 1.8.2
This version fixes an incompatibility with the Loop Store and iOS 5
This is a very useful little app. I like to load in my own loops and jam with them. The import system is very tedious though. You have to use their special import website that transfer them from your computer to your ipad. Not the worst system, but not the easiest.
The icons are too cryptic and small. Larger icons with actually images (a snare for snare, bass drum for kick, hihat for hihats, etc.) would make this a 4 star app. As is, if you load in four drum parts you have to stop and examen each one to see what it is since they'll all be the same color with the same fake sound wave design.
The effects are pretty good, but the filter and flanger tend to distort.
Over all a fun app. $15 seems steep.
audio copy isn't working
I've had looptastic for awhile, and I like it but it does have limitations, and the use and features are somewhat unclear.
Currently every time I try to paste audio into it, it stops working completely until I restart my iPad.
It auto records your performances, which is cool, but it seems to me that it eats up system resources pretty bad doing that. Perhaps if you could toggle recording on or off it would be better.
I concur with many of the complaints listed here. Please fix!
Worth one dollar
I was able to get this when it went on sale for one dollar. It is worth that. The app itself is easy to use and sounds good. There is no way to audition the sounds before you drop them into the mix. I wish you could rename or rate the samples. There is no way to save custom mixes. The in app purchases are expensive and it is unclear what you get. With all this in mind, it is still a good app for one dollar.
