Description of App

Best Musicians App, 2nd Place in Best App Ever 2011! - Now with Audiobus: http://audiob.us ✪ ➤ Create music by layering looped recordings of singing, beatboxing, or playing an instrument with a savvy, sophisticated, tactile new looper that totally reinvents the formula.

Introducing Audiobus support: Now you can receive live audio directly from other Audiobus-compatible apps! See http://audiob.us for more information. http://loopyapp.com http://facebook.com/ATastyPixelhttp://twitter.com/ATastyPixel http://youtu.be/7GgiVhTB_yA -- “This is the best loop station on the iPhone” -- Dub FX (dubfx.net)  http://youtu.be/OcKpPY5Vxjs-- “This is an incredible app...I'm definitely using Loopy to write the next album.” -- Pete Mitchell, No More Kings http://youtu.be/_s-MQQg7OvA -- “I pretty much own every mobile looper out there and Loopy is HANDS DOWN the best. Super simple interface with powerful features.” -- J. Alan Meier  “If you want a recording app that will get out of the way and just let you be creative, you just found it.” -- Dave Merson-Hess, indie film composer “Loopy 2 is by far the best looper for the iPhone we’ve seen to date” -- iOS Recording This is a looper that'll come out to play, but get down to work when you want to get serious.  While other music creation apps tend to be either powerful but difficult to learn, or easy to use but limited in features, Loopy doesn't compromise. Loopy offers a sleek, expressive, instantly understandable interface that beginners can start using effectively straight away. It's fun, right from the start.  More advanced users, however, will not be disappointed by Loopy's rich feature set, with extra features many other loopers just don't have. Plus, a sophisticated interactive tutorial system lets users discover Loopy's more advanced features at their own pace.  RECORD & LAYER

Accessibility Comments

WIth the latest release Voiceover support is just spectacular. This is not just about labeling buttons and such. This guy clearly spent some time thinking over how to make it easier for Voiceover users to utilize all of the functions of the app.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments

From what I've seen, most of the essential functions of the app are fully accessible with VoiceOver. If you have any feedback, let the developer know. He is clearly one of those "I want to do it right" guys!

This app just may be what I am looking for. The app description says it can change tempo, but does anyone know if this app can change pitch as well?

I am trying to decide if I should buy loopy hd or not? I am trying to get 4 simple questions about it answered before I buy it. 1. can you import your own files to work on? 2. Can you change pitch of files? 3. can you change tempo of files? 4. can you export your changed files? Thank you.

So I just got this app and have a few questions:

1: how does one record with tracks on this app?

2: what's the best way to navigate it? direct touch makes it a bit confusing for me to use.

3: Would normal VO gestures work in the tracks screen?
