Loop Maker:BEATS Advanced Drum Loop Generator is an 8 channel polyphonic drum sequencer for creating simple or advanced drum sequences and rhythms with multiple animated independent DSP audio effects on each drum pad.
Now with MIDI receive Sync with Start Stop.
Mute or un-mute pad parts
Bass,snare,clap,rim/wood,open hat, closed hat, cymbal/ride,percussion/miscellaneous pads
Various sounds for each drum pad.
32 shuffle (swing) levels.
Edit drums volume, pitch, pan, reverb, delay(echo), echo speed, echo feedback, plus resonant filter.
All effects are independent for each part.
You can also key-frame effects for motion controlled time oriented modulations of effects.
Record in real-time effect changes.
You can create basic standard drum beats or extremely crazy synthetic electro loops.
Render final loop to iTunes Shared folder, audiocopy/paste or email.
Overdub recording with new recording.
Swipe the digital effect bars (resembling 64 divisions which appear in effect modes) controlling the amount of effect or pan.
Once you have your loop finalized and rendered, it can then be saved to the app's documents folder allowing access via iTunes, it can also export via audio-copy to be pasted via audio-paste in various other apps. If that is not enough you can export via email.
Patterns can be stored just by clicking on "SAVE" whenever you are in memory mode. You may lose your current pattern if you do not save your pattern before loading another pattern. Press the red grid button in memory mode will clear the current pattern.
If you do not set the sound on a pattern (key frames) then it will keep the current sound for each part of the previous pattern after loading.(Handy for blending patterns but keeping settings like swing, sounds etc
Memory mode instantly loads your stored patterns.
All sounds are set with mid-pan so you may want to position these to your liking in stereo space (just like you would sub-mixing a real drum kit)
All loops are recorded at CD quality stereo.
Some drum categories will have less sounds to choose from but these may be added to later.

One screen? No Help or instruction
I’m sure this could be fun and amazing, but there is no “working” Help screen or tutorial. Even visited the website which directed me to UTube for a 7 min video. Still no instructions, but just a bunch demos, without any more. I was excited about teaching myself how to use it, but without understandings basic understanding of what the keys do or how to use them, I’m afraid this app is useless to me. Guess I made a 99 cent donation, but was really hoping to at least get my dollars worth. Why would you go through all the work if creating an app and not explain the basics?
Developer Response ,
Hi, perhaps you didn't notice but there is a "Help" button. When this is turned on, every other button has a description to what it does and how to use it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
