Loopy HD, the live looper for iPad

The app fully exploits the iPad’s large display with up to 12 tracks for rich, detailed compositions

Software artisan company, A Tasty Pixel today announces the launch of Loopy HD, the iPad and universal version of its acclaimed live looping app. Loopy HD lets anyone create music by layering looped recordings of singing, beatboxing, or playing an instrument in a sleek, tactile interface that combines power with simplicity. The app fully exploits the iPad’s large display with up to 12 tracks for rich, detailed compositions. A wealth of expressive features lets more advanced users take their creativity even further.

The original iPhone-only version of Loopy, launched in June, has received acclaim from music industry commentators and musicians alike, and has been recently featured by Apple on the App Store.

“This is the best loop station on the iPhone,” said professional beatboxer and recording artist Dub Fx. Pro audio blog “iOS Recording” recently wrote “Loopy 2 is by far the best looper for the iPhone we’ve seen to date.”

Loopy’s unique approach allows it to maintain an easy-to-use interface while still packing in powerful, industry-standard features. Users familiar with professional studio applications like Ableton Live will not be disappointed by Loopy's feature set, which includes overdubbing, merging, panning, time shifting, and live tempo scaling. A sophisticated interactive tutorial system lets users discover Loopy's more advanced features at their own pace.

Loopy HD empowers musicians and casual users alike to:

  • Record and layer, with up to twelve beautifully-rendered circular loops featuring overdubbing, count-in, count-out and record chaining.
  • Import and construct, by importing loops from your computer, or from other apps with integrated MAPI AudioPaste, and fit loops to your beat, no matter what tempo.
  • Manipulate and tweak, with a host of track features: full stereo audio with pan controls, track merging, and live, dynamic tempo adjustment.
  • Perform and share, by recording whole performances with in-app session recording facilities, and sharing to SoundCloud, Twitter, Facebook or via email. Export to many other audio apps with MAPI AudioCopy.

The iPhone-only version of Loopy has also received a significant update today, introducing new controls, tempo-tapping and improved performance and timing accuracy.

Device Requirements:
iPad, iPhone 3Gs or newer, or 3rd-generation iPod Touch or newer (microphone accessory recommended) running iOS 4.0 or later.

Loopy HD runs on the iPod Touch, but it is not specifically designed for these devices. iPod Touch users must use Loopy HD with a headset, as the iPod Touch does not have an inbuilt microphone.

Pricing and Availability: Loopy HD is available at the special 50% off launch price of $3.99 (USD) exclusively through the App Store in the Music category.
