In 2008 I was producing loop kits for an iPhone app called Looptastic. Almost 10 years later I’m producing for Retronyms. Funny how the basic technology is the same. Both Looptastic and Hook read ACIDization meta and do stretching. Back then Looptastic was the only app doing this before GarageBand for iOS. In 1998 I worked at a company called Sonic Foundry editing their loops for Acid Pro. As much as I’d like to escape the loop biz it keeps sucking me back in lol. Anyway excited to announce my latest pack Deep EDM now available in the AudioCopy content store!
Retronyms Looperverse lets you time stretch and change the pitch of a loop quickly and accurately. You can even play the loop on Looperverse’s built in keyboard to find a desired pitch. The following video shows you just how easy it is to change the tempo and pitch of a loop in Looperverse.
Looperverse is the ultimate loop recording and performance system for iOS! Continuously record up to 16 tracks worth of content, and immediately edit them.
Looperverse makes recording, editing, and customizing loops simple. The 16 track loop recorder includes sound-on-sound, overwrite, and next track modes. You can adjust track sends to the built-in delay and reverb effects, as well as adjusting pan, gain, mute, and solo in the mixer. Looperverse features advanced waveform editing, pitch shifting, time stretching, live reverse, extensive undo/redo, and time signature support.
Limitlessly modify your scenes and explore your phrases and riffs with Looperverse. Inter App Audio and AudioBus support ensures that you can record any virtual instrument. Looperverse also supports Ableton Link, allowing you to lock tempo with Ableton Live or apps on other devices. AudioCopy support allows you to quickly publish music on SoundCloud, copy and paste from hundreds of compatible apps, and choose from millions of loops and sounds available in the Content Store.

Each setting is fully customizable, so you can remap to their liking. It can be controlled from your iOS device and will work as a standalone pedal with any device that supports MIDI. Because the Looperverse pedal supports the Bluetooth (BTLE) MIDI standard, it’s compatible with virtually any software on any device. You can control Looperverse from external hardware and remap to your liking with MIDI and MIDI Learn support.
I’m excited to announce that today I signed a 12 page contract with Retronyms. I will be producing loop and sample content for their apps Hook and iMPC which will be available through their iOS audiocopy content store. In the past I’ve produced content for the following iOS apps Sound Trends (Looptastic, Studio HD, Meta Dj), Finger Pro LP-5, Noisepad 2.0, Audio Elements, and iPro.DJSampler.
As a loop content producer with almost 20 years of experience I am very pleased to be part of this fantastic new technology and Retronyms is always on the cutting edge. This is why I created my brand “Dj Puzzle” back in 2001. I’m producing puzzle pieces to put together in your music 🙂
Hook is a new music performance, mashup, and DJ app for iPhone and iPad. Arrange and trigger loops on a grid and create dynamic, expressive transitions with the Flux Fader — a multitouch “smart crossfader” that allows you to expressively make transitions between any combination of tracks/cells on the fly. The Flux Fader includes a two-axis control with 9 riser synths, glitch and gate effects, tempo-synced filter sweeps, an EQ, beat drop, tape stop, and filter drop. Combining all these to make transitions is the heart of playing live with Hook. Hook includes a full editor complete with auto transient slicing and waveform editing. Tight integration with AudioCopy makes it easy to drop in your own loops and sounds from other apps.
Real creative power can be found in the integrated sampler — record from mic/line, other apps via inter-app audio, and grab hooks from iTunes and Spotify. Change tempo in real time, and keep all your hooks in sync. Hook is a killer mashup tool with a full mixer, tons of tracks, integrated FX bus, per-cell fx, transpose, time stretching, tuning, timing and trigger settings, and more. Imagine the clip launching capabilities of Ableton Live in a futuristic multitouch environment.
iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. 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. My work is published by Sony Creative, Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
