Loopy HD

Loopy HD application logo

As seen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon -- Create music with Loopy HD by layering looped recordings of singing, beatboxing, or playing an instrument with a savvy, sophisticated, tactile new looper that totally reinvents the formula.


-- “This is the best loop station on the iPhone” -- Dub FX (dubfx.net)
-- “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

Now compatible with Ableton Link, a new technology that synchronises beat, phase and tempo. It works between Ableton Live and Link-enabled iOS apps over a wireless network, or iOS apps on the same device. Just turn it on in Settings to get started! http://ableton.com/link

Compatible with the Audiobus app: Now you can receive live audio directly from other Audiobus-compatible apps!

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.

Loopy HD Reviews

Absolute garbage  Juan Del Cortez  1 star

Monstrously difficult to use if you’re playing guitar and trying to loop it. Absolutely not worth the $4.00.


Great app  Jcarlson11  3 star

It is a great app but I don’t think there is a countdown. I use it to record guitar so it would be nice if I had more time to get ready.


mic input on iphone  reydltorre  3 star

app does not completely disable the mic input, and there’s no way to lower the meter on Input Gain, it’s greyed out and maxed. you can still hear background environment during playback with all input settings set to off. not an issue on ipad.


Fast fun flexible  Lucidxxrx  5 star

The first time I used loopy, it seemed limited. I just installed it again, routed it through Audiobus, messed with live sampling... honestly it’s great. It’ll take me a bit to master live looping, I use daw usually. Once I get the timing and overdub features, it’ll be great. I’m struggling to find a render out function though.


Great app but after update recording low quality  Nervenet  3 star

First of all it's a great app, but for some reason after update it started recording in low bit rate m4a instead of high quality aiff. It ruins experience! Can you please kindly return it back? I know that many people complained about this. Hope you can fix it with next update.

Excellent app for spontaneous sound looping!  VJ Franz K  5 star

The interface is a little different then a hardware Looper, but it certainly makes visual sense, and you will learn it easily. I do wish there was the ability to make sections of loops to switch together, like ABC song structure


Audio is unusable.  aardvarknation  1 star

I was honestly very hopeful with this app after reading all of the revues but it's completely unusable on my iPad. There is a consistent 100 millisecond delay with about a 60 percent repeat (think robot voice) when you try to record. I've tried every thing that seem relevant to fix the issue but no luck. And I believe I paid $5 for it so that's a total drag.


Still don't get it.  JoyRide55  1 star

I think I bought this the week it came out. Still haven't figured out how to do anything with it. Nothing is labeled. Very cryptic user interface, much like every Apple product, beautiful design and impossible to figure out. Jimmy Fallon can afford a Loopy tutor I suppose. Couldn't they take the time to write down instructions somewhere?


Love this app  3eezer  5 star

This app is perfect for putting together songs quickly and without much hassle. It's awesome to use with audiobus. That said there are 2 things I would love to see. The first is a way to label tracks / loops. And the other would be some kind of auto fade in fade out or volume envelope. Aside from those 2 things this app is a game changer in my opinion!


Enhanced my life  uluqulu  5 star

Thanks dude, whoever u are. This app smokes it for breakfast and chews back the biscuits all while scrambling eggs in time for the big porn show. Keep up the great work!

Rob Lawlor

Really useful  Rob Lawlor  5 star

Any iOS musician will be delighted with this App! Incredibly intuitive and endlessly useful!


Smart and Inspiring  ClusterCluck  5 star

Different enough to inspire and produce the goods. Very clever and quick to create with. Audiobus compatibility nails this ad a top app. Do not hesitate.
