There’s a lot in there for the first update to Looptical. Here’s the list:
- “Filter And Volume” option added for the vertical axis in Scale Keyboard, allowing you to fade in a note with both volume and filter frequency with a single gesture for increased emphasis.
- Left-handed guitar mode added to the Chord Guitar, stringing the guitar EBGDAE instead of EADGBE and flipping the preset chord patterns accordingly.
- New for iOS7: use the Camera Connection Kit to attach a compatible USB MIDI Interface or Keyboard to your iPhone and use it to control Looptical.
- Start octave setting is now applied in the Guitar Chord Edit screen.
- Graphical glitch on 3.5 inch display devices where the mute / solo / FX buttons on channel 6 were always lit has been fixed.
- New demo track added: “DEMO – WubWub”.
- Fixed an issue with importing user-created instruments from iTunes Shared Folder and email.
Note to users of older devices: The demo tracks were composed on an iPhone5 and sound best with an iPhone5 or newer. Looptical detects slower devices (iPhone4S or older, iPad2 or earlier) and unpacks a second version of the demos with a reduced number of effects. Devices with a much slower CPU than the iPhone5 may be overloaded by the number of effects used in the demos and experience audio glitching. This is perfectly normal, and you should compose your own tracks to suit the power of your device. For more information see the Looptical manual on System Resources and Song Complexity.
