Loopr is a pro oriented multi-track audio looper.
Loopr offers you a very low latency mean to record and play loops. You can create, practice, jam along, or sample audio soudscapes easily with this simple to use app. Developed by long-time expert loopers, it is focused on ergonomy and simplicity through one finger controls but also via hands-free MIDI pedalboard compatibility.
It enables synchronization with drum machines and sequencers via its precise MIDI out sync feature, but also fast multi-layer recording via its ‘fast recording mode’.
Loops can be sent as independent files (including tempo and time signature information), which lets you share the groove with most desktop audio production apps (e.g. Logic Studio, Garage Band, …).
CoreMIDI and CoreAudio compatible to use with the most popular iOS compatible interfaces.

i-Jingle turns your iPad into a professional jingle player. Easy to use controls let you either play up to 8 jingles simultaneously, cross fade 2 jingles, fade out the first jingle while starting the next or simply stop the first and start the next. So called 2nd touch settings allow you to stop, fade out or re-start a jingle. At any moment you have 35 jingles on screen and scrolling up and down through the jingles or quickly switching between presets allows you to access up to 300 jingles without leaving the main screen.
The biggest difference between the FREE version and the new i-Jingle PRO is that it operates in standalone mode. Audio files are now associated with the App by means of iTunes, cancelling the need for a web interface like jingleplayer.net. All you need is a computer with iTunes installed and a connection to your iPad to synchronise the App.
Although a large number of functions have been added, we’ve succeeded to make this next generation i-Jingle App as easy and intuitive to use as previous versions. Now our developers have added a brand new interface that handles all of the category and file management on one settings screen, right on your iPad. The main player setting controls have been improved, 3 presets per player column have been added and the complete app design is now retina ready.
i-Jingle PRO App for iPad is the cart player that makes every user sound like a broadcast professional.
