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.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a nice alternative for a guitar looper. I can record loops and practice and it have some complex rhythms if you wish to explore odd meters etc. it is possible to create an advanced loop but it is not as intuitive so I still need to explore that. I’m wondering if you can loop a song that has two separate meters? We shall see.
Monitoring is not compatible with Bluetooth headphones
When I tried to record with any Bluetooth device, monitoring was always one beat behind. It doesn't work to be singing and playing while having the sound come in a beat late. It drove me crazy because I love playing around with this app but I can't with any of my good microphones. Also, I accidentally purchased both apps and I wish there was a return policy lol. I am a cheapskate and don't want two apps that I had to buy that do the same exact thing... Other than those complaints, I think it is a fun app to mess around on and create small compositions.
Developer Response ,
I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble - unfortunately, Bluetooth is just that way; it's a very high latency audio system, and not suitable for live use (this is why it took me so long to even enable it in Loopy, because I knew people would have trouble like this). It's better to use wired headphones. Do a Google search for App Store refund to find out how to get refunds.
I’ve been using Loopy to make little musical snapshots of my life over the past few years. Can scroll through my loops to revisit college days, trips to Montreal, whatever. Easily my favorite app on my phone. Thanks for putting so much heart into it.
