Built for Live performance and hands free use, Quantiloop recreates the simplicity of a hardware loop pedal in an iOS app. Attach a MIDI foot controller and control it the way you want. No MIDI controller at hand; just preset your loop length, enable auto–record or a count–in and your loops will automatically close, no hands or feet required. Big onscreen controls allow for easy configuration and tactile control by vocalists or beat boxers. Focus on your performance instead of fiddling with dip switches or complex menu’s.
Create 4 tracks with endless layers of overdubs to build your performance. Record a Chorus, Verse and Bridge and switch between them seamlessly or create a 1 bar percussie loop on track one, a 4 bar chord progression on track two and layer a bass line on top, all in perfect synchronisation.
The builtin rhythm guide provides a rhythmic backing. Use the internal metronome for practice, import drum loops from virtually anywhere or host and control your favourite rhythm apps to enhance your performance. MIDI master lets you control MIDI hardware, and MIDI slave lets Quantiloop follow it. Ableton Link lets you even play in time over WiFi with external apps and devices. Quantisation aligns your actions to the nearest measure or beat so you stay in time, and real-time tempo control sets the pace. Prefer setting your own pace, disable quantisation and Quantiloop will react to your actions with minimum latency to create tight synchronised recordings.
Assign up to 3 simultaneous effects to the input. Use the built-in transpose to covert your guitar into a bass, or host your guitar amp sim directly in Quantiloop. The results will be recorded into your loops.
Or assign up to 3 simultaneous track effects to the output. Use the tape stop to add drama, introduce a key change to build up your performance, or host an Inter-App audio/AU reverb processor. Track FX may be assigned to a single track, all tracks or the combined output.

General Improvements and Fixes
- Fixed display on iPad Pro 11 inch
- Improved Tap-Tempo
- Reduced CPU usage at low latency settings
- Fixed an issue that could cause pops in recorded audio when switching apps and connected to multiple inputs
- Fix an issue that caused rhyhtm auto-start to be out of sync with manual output latency comp set
- On changing timesignature change BPM so audio does not timestretch
- Fixed an issue at that would cause recordings to fail at the lowest latency settings
- Fixed: an issue where an instant dub was stopped to earlly when switching serial tracks
- Fixed some issues with Compressor AU
- Don’t send MIDI start messages when switching loops if rhythm already playing
Added several Advanced Options
- Option to skip empty presets when changing presets over MIDI
- Option to always round tap-tempo to whole numbers
- Option to store user buttons assignments (track 3/4) globally instead of per preset
- Option to disallow preset changes (from MIDI) when something is playing in advanced options
- MIDI timestamp option for tap-tempo (when enabled MIDI timestamps are used which is most accurate) However some controller like the IRIG blueboard don’t send correct timestamps. (See also quantiloop.com/midicontrol)
- Added statesaving
- Audiobus Remote triggers for enabling FX
Ratings and Reviews
No need to buy a hardware multitrack looper!!!
This app is great, it works just as simple as a hardware looper like a Boss Loop Station but has way more options as far a routing effects and inputs. I use it with a Behringer FCB1010 midi pedalboard and setting up midi commands within the app couldn’t be easier, it’s not rocket science, if you can’t figure this out then maybe a hardware looper pedal would be better for you. This also has a feature that some apps don’t, a STOP button and an easy way to start the loop from the beginning, add in the built in effects and this is the best looper app out there. The only thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is I wish it supported split screen on my iPad Pro, the ideal setup would be to have a chord chart and lyrics on one side and Quantiloop on the other, but I’ve found a good workaround for this, I use my iPad for chord charts and then my iPhone for Quantiloop but it would great to just show up for a gig with my iPad, a small midi pedalboard (this also works great with my irig BlueBoard), an interface, and my guitar, hopefully they can add support for split screen in a future update, otherwise it’s the best looper app I’ve found for the iPad and I’m probably going to sell my Boss Loop Station.
Good lopper but stop the ads
This is a great looping option. I use it with an audio interface and a midi controller and I'm satisfied. I am not happy though with the fact that even that I have the pro version, meaning that I payed for it, my sessions get interrupted by an add asking me to rate the app in the Appstore. I understand that this is important for the company but It should be an option, not something that freezes your flow so you can't keep going on. First I choose the Don't remind me again option. But the add was back next day. Now I'm rating it. I hope I don't get more of this or other kinds of messages freezing up my sessions and I sure hope that doesn't happen in the middle of a live show because that would be really unfortunate.
Best Live Loop App Period
This is truly a wonderfully well thought out app for live looping. All the options you need to personalize to how you approach looping. The internal audio mixer in the app is really top notch and allows you to get everything you can from the other music production apps you already use. Midi programming really turns it into a serious live performance tool. Thanks for a great app
