Quantiloop Hands Free Live Looper For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

quantiploop

Built for Live performance and hands free use, Quantiloop recreates the simplicity of a hardware loop pedal in an iOS app. Attach a MIDI foot controller and control it the way you want. No MIDI controller at hand; just preset your loop length, enable auto–record or a count–in and your loops will automatically close, no hands or feet required. Big onscreen controls allow for easy configuration and tactile control by vocalists or beat boxers. Focus on your performance instead of fiddling with dip switches or complex menu’s.

Be Creative

Create two tracks with endless layers of overdubs to build your performance. Record a Chorus and Verse in each track and switch between them seamlessly, or create a 1 bar percussie loop on track one, a 4 bar chord progression on track two and layer a bass line on top, all in perfect synchronisation.

Rhythm Guide

The builtin rhythm guide provides a rhythmic backing. Use the internal metronome for practice, import drum loops from virtually anywhere or host and control your favourite rhythm apps to enhance your performance. Ableton Link you lets you even play in time with external apps and devices. Quantisation aligns your actions to the nearest measure or beat so you stay in time, and real-time tempo control sets the pace. Prefer setting your own pace, disable quantisation and Quantiloop will react to your actions with minimum latency to create tight synchronised recordings.

Secret Base Design Infinite Looper
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Infinite Looper

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.

Infinite Looper

* 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.

Infinite Looper Midi Learn

* 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.

* Take Notes
Want to jot down song lyrics, or details on a synthesizer or hardware setup? Infinite Looper projects include a text notepad, so you can capture whatever you need to!

—-
Infinite Looper uses the Ableton Link library, the Audiobus library, and the MIDIbus library. Internal sounds are from the widely used SoundFont set by Christian Collins.

Novation Blocs Wave Loop Mixing App For iOS

Novation Blocs Wave iOS

From the dev “Blocs Wave is a music creation app designed to inspire new musical ideas. Easily combine original professional sounds across a wide array of genres. Tweak your sounds using beautiful touchable waveforms, and make your ideas even more unique. Record your vocals and instruments, and bring your ideas to life within minutes.”

My review: This app costs $4.99 and it comes with some loops. It’s an 8 track recorder/looping app and a loop mixing app. You can record into it and you can import your own loops. In this version you can NOT export a mix of loops as one sound file (maybe I missed something?). You are limited to exporting each of the eight possible loop pads individually. There are a ton of features found in other apps like GarageBand for example that are just not included in this app. I feel they rushed it out to test the waters. Sadly for the money it is just not worth it. I would get something like GarageBand which is loaded with valuable features for the same price. BUT if you’re looking to burn five bucks for a simple easy to use 8 track loop recorder/mixer then this might be for you. Keep in mind there is not a way to sequence the loops and record the sequence. It’s basically a manual track on track off type situation aka mute and unmute. There is no mixer page so to adjust the volume of a loop you have to click on it which means you can’t adjust multiple loops simultaneously. There are no effects and no sync options. You can not import a whole folder of loops just one by one. There is no user folder for imported loops. You have to import them individually each time. You CAN’T share your loop kits as one container file with a project again they have to be exported individually. No inter app audio support and does not support audio input from audiobus. Wow they just plopped a really simple basic no frills app down on us and want five bucks for it.
