A major update to indie developer A Tasty Pixel’s app Loopy has hit the App Store today, bringing both enhanced usability for inexperienced users, and professional-grade enhancements for more advanced musicians. Loopy lets musicians and tinkerers alike rapidly build multi-layered musical pieces by recording or importing looped layers of sound.

The changes bring a lightning-fast 6-7 millisecond response time, top-quality audio mixing, and support for a wide range of multichannel audio hardware

Independent software developer A Tasty Pixel today announces the latest major update to its live-looping iOS app Loopy. The update includes a big overhaul of the app’s sophisticated audio engine, bringing an entirely new level of audio quality, responsiveness, and audio hardware support.

Loopy is an app that brings live-looping, an innovative music creation technique previously limited to the realm of expensive hardware and complicated computer setups, to anyone with an iPad or iPhone. Furthermore, the app does it in style, with a sleek and tactile interface.

“The big audio engine improvements in this update are going to make Loopy an even more appealing candidate for replacing the expensive equipment previously required for live-looping,” said Loopy developer and independent software company A Tasty Pixel founder Michael Tyson. “The changes bring a lightning-fast 6-7 millisecond response time, top-quality audio mixing, and support for a wide range of multichannel audio hardware including the Alesis iO Dock and IO4, and the Tascam US range.”

Loopy introduced MIDI support in an earlier update, which allows it to be extensively controlled by foot pedals such as the Roland FC-200 or the Behringer FCB 1010, or tempo-synchronized with other equipment.

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

Pricing and Availability: Loopy, the iPhone-only version of the live looper app, is available for $2.99 exclusively through the App Store in the Music category. Loopy HD, the iPad and Universal version of the app, is available for $7.99 through the App Store.
