Here’s what’s new in Loopy today:
“Loopy” gets an update today that introduces new loop effects. The features lend a new dimension to performances and musical experimentation. Loopy lets musicians and tinkerers alike rapidly build multi-layered musical pieces by recording or importing looped layers of sound.
A Tasty Pixel’s recording and loop-layering iPad and iPhone app Loopy today gets a significant update, bringing loop effects to the app’s already extensive feature set. The new effects, reverse and decay, introduce new possibilities for musical expression and have been the features most frequently requested by users.
“Loopy lets anyone with an iPad or iPhone create music in an exciting and novel way: By recording and looping layers of music,” said A Tasty Pixel founder and developer Michael Tyson. “Both Loopy’s hobbyist and professional users love it for the creativity boost it gives them, and I think they’ll love the things they can do with these new effects.”
Other features in the new update include a number of new actions that can be toggled by MIDI controllers, several significant improvements to the recording workflow, and enhanced latency compensation.
