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.

Beatboxer Dub FX Demos Loopy HD
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Best Voice Looper

Watch world famous beatboxer and song writer Dub FX perform a demo on Loopy HD. Looking forward to the new Loopy Masterpiece but in the meantime I’m enjoying Loopy HD with Ableton Link.

What’s New in Version 1.5.1

By popular demand, this update introduces a new “Play from start” mode, where loops start playing from the beginning no matter when you start them. Turn it on in Track Management settings. Try it with a 1 bar quantization setting and mix it up to your heart’s desire.

This update also fixes a couple of minor issues with record-on-unpause and tempo changes.

Loopy HD is 25% off for a limited time! — As seen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon — Create music with Loopy HD by layering looped recordings of singing, beatboxing, or playing an instrument with a savvy, sophisticated, tactile new looper that totally reinvents the formula.

Now compatible with Ableton Link, a new technology that synchronizes beat, phase and tempo. It works between Ableton Live and Link-enabled iOS apps over a wireless network, or iOS apps on the same device. Just turn it on in Settings to get started.

Compatible with the Audiobus app: Now you can receive live audio directly from other Audiobus-compatible apps.

While other music creation apps tend to be either powerful but difficult to learn, or easy to use but limited in features, Loopy doesn’t compromise. Loopy offers a sleek, expressive, instantly understandable interface that beginners can start using effectively straight away. It’s fun, right from the start.

More advanced users, however, will not be disappointed by Loopy’s rich feature set, with extra features many other loopers just don’t have. Plus, a sophisticated interactive tutorial system lets users discover Loopy’s more advanced features at their own pace.

RECORD & LAYER

– Six, nine, or twelve beautifully rendered circular loops, with simple yet powerful controls.
– Count-in, count-out and record chaining lets you keep your hands free to play an instrument.
– MIDI control, to control Loopy via foot pedal or other controller.
– Overdub, to build beautiful, complex soundscapes from many layers.
– Support for tracks of any multiple or fraction of a beat, for flexible and expressive looping.
– Sophisticated audio or visual metronome to keep you in time – no matter what time signature you choose.
– Perfectly synchronized, low latency audio engine.

IMPORT & CONSTRUCT

– Import loops from your computer via iTunes, with support for AIFF, WAV, MP3, M4A, CAF and more.
– Bring in audio from many other audio apps with integrated audio copy and paste.
– Imported loops are automatically fit to your beat, no matter what tempo.

MANIPULATE & TWEAK

– Full stereo audio, with pan controls for each track to create custom stereoscapes.
– Fix up timing by twisting tracks around to line up the beat, or make funky sound effects with dynamic time shifting.
– Drag a track onto another track to merge tracks, and clear up a space.
– Live, dynamic tempo adjustment to speed up or slow down your creations, without altering the pitch.
– MIDI clock sync, to play in time with other MIDI-capable devices or apps.

PERFORM & SHARE

– Record whole performances with in-app session recording facilities.
– Upload performances or single loops straight to SoundCloud, and post to Twitter or Facebook.
– Email audio clips.
– Share audio with many other audio apps with audio copy and paste.
– Transfer loops or performances to your computer via iTunes.

LoopTree Looper App For iOS
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , ,

LoopTree

The iPad Loops music apps blog is proud to announce news about LoopTree by Coding Cod Ltd

LoopTree is an exciting new breed of looper that brings more fun than ever to creating live music! Record and group practically unlimited vocal and instrumental loops using a powerful, layered interface that gives you unrivaled control over the music you create. Get your creative juices flowing and evolve your loops using the built-in filter and multi-touch beat repeat.

LoopTree solves the problem of destructive merging by instead combining your loops into layers. You retain individual control over your original loops and you can also control them as one using the new layer.

LoopTree-Looper-For-iOS

FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS

• Audiobus Remote
• Audiobus triggers
• Unlimited number of loops (practically!)
• Non-destructive layering
• Beat repeat – sample, repeat and reverse loops
• Filter – add variety with an LPF, BPF and HPF

RECORDING

• Normal recording – fixed or multiple length loops
• Chained recording – select multiple tracks to record loops back-to-back
• Layered recording – equivalent of non-destructive overdubbing

LOOP LENGTH

Within a session, all loops are a 2^n multiple of the shortest loop (2x, 4x, 8x, etc). This makes it really easy to set the loop length whilst recording.

EASY TO USE

• One-finger volume/pan control on individual or simultaneous loops
• Group control – group tracks into layers; parent tracks control all layers of child tracks.
• MIDI Control
• Quantize options
• Metronome – create custom accented rhythms

SHARING AND IMPORT

• Support for IAA, Audiobus, Audiobus Remote
• AudioCopy – copy session recordings and combined loops
• AudioPaste – start your session with pasted audio
• Share sessions and recordings via email, iTunes and SoundCloud

AUDIO INTERFACES

LoopTree works well with headphones, but for truly outstanding quality, we recommend using a USB audio interface. We have tested the following interfaces:

• Behringer UCA222 and 202
• Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 (includes MIDI)

I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements.
